PERFECT eyebrows are a bit of an obsession for Pillow Mag Editor Angharad Llewellyn. Here she trials HD Brows – and shows you the results…
Last week I went to test, and get the low-down, on having my eyebrows HD’d after meeting a fantastic technician at an event a couple of months ago and being impressed with her dedication to creating the perfect set.
During the time inbetween my initial consultation and booking in for the actual treatment, I had grown my brows back to a much better proportion to suit my face. I admit I had gone a little ‘pluck happy’ recently and they had become a little thin on the ground.
So with a nice set ready for the technician at iBrows etc in Central London to tend to, I visited the salon mid-week to review the process.
The best aspect of the entire treatment was the care and attention that my technician gave to create a suitable shape. She quizzed me on how I wanted my brows to look, asking about the severity of the arch, and the kind of look I wanted to achieve.
She then tinted them, and then waxed, threaded and plucked them to perfection. As an eyebrow obsessive, I was pleased to see how much time she dedicated to each technique.
She even trimmed some of the longer hairs towards the ‘bushier’ end of my brow – which I totally didn’t expect, but made them look a lot neater.
For me, this is where the treatment could have ended and I’d have been over the moon.
My technician then spent a long, long (long) time pencilling and shading in my brows – and I don’t think I suited the final result.
My personal opinion is that if you spend an hour in a beauty salon, you should walk away feeling a million dollars… whereas I felt like I needed to downgrade my incredibly dark brows to reveal her fantastic work underneath.
Once I’d scrubbed away all of the shading on top, my eyebrows looked amazing – but as a blonde I just didn’t suit heavily painted on brows.
Now, a week later, in terms of results I have to say I am very happy — my eyebrows are the perfect arch and the perfect shade.
