A few weeks ago I posted on how to create the perfect brows, and I loved all of your comments! It feels great that I can share anything that is helpful, that is my #1 goal with this little page of rambles. But that was just the start, there is SO much more to talk about when it comes to brows including products, waxing and advanced services like micro-blading (its coming up soon) Throughout the year I plan to revisit the topic of brows often, share product reviews and together we will all master the art of our own brows
This week I called up an old friend, Leslie Mcalister, who is the brow master behind Browz located in Downtown Seattle in the Medical Dental Building. I met Leslie years ago when she worked for Anastasia of Beverly Hills doing brow services in the Flagship Nordstrom store. She took care of my invisible brows, yes invisible hairs that still needed a little waxing and shaping. Since then she has moved in to her own studio right next door, literally attached to the same building!
Here is what Leslie has to say about trends, taking care of thin brows and more
Q For the last few years brows have been super strong, overdrawn and bold, is that holding on or is the trend changing? "As far as brow trends go less seems to be more right now meaning a groomed brow with less trimming, less filling and more tinting for color and depth followed by a little gel to set and polish the brow"
Q Biggest mistakes you see with brows? "The biggest brow mistake is still over tweezed and wide-set brows"
Q For my brides or clients who have never had their brows waxed how often should they come in after their initial visit? "3 weeks for maintenance would be ideal"
Q For someone who got a bad brow job, what is your advice to fix it? "It can take time to correct an over tweezed brow so getting to a professional as soon as possible would be your best bet and every persons growth is different but to prevent someone from going overboard with the tweezing"
Q Microblading is a huge trend right now, what are your thoughts? "I think microblading is great for someone who is lacking brow hair, you do still have to shape what you have and microblading is not a permanent solution it does still require maintenance and needs to be re-done every year or so"
Thank you Leslie, it is always great to get a pros view on beauty techniques!
