Today we are talking all things BROWS. They’re a funny thing – we remember when we plucked each others and wanted them to be as thin as they could be when we were in middle school and since then the trend has become thick, natural & full. We’re here to let you know which products are best for filling in where your hair is sparse, what to invest in and where to go to get the best brows of your life!
For maintaining we usually wax and tint at Sopra Salon with Hayley. Sopra is full of some of the best beauty professionals in KC and Hayley is no exception! She’s a licensed esthetician and makes your experience quick and painless. We ask for a “clean up” and try and keep our natural shape, and tint to get a slightly darker shade than our natural hair color.
For filling in when we go out, we use all Anastasia Beverly Hills products – they are the best! We use the Brow Wiz and the Dip Brow Pomade, finishing with the ABH Tinted Brow Gel to give us a full look. Finally we use the Pro Pencil to clean up above and below brow bone for the perfect brows. Best ABH tutorial HERE.
Now as we all know, not everyone is blessed with perfect brows! I let my cousin pluck mine in the 7th grade and I swear they were never the same. I spent so much money finding the best products for shaping and filling in but at the end of the day, it was a lot of time and effort every time I left the house for work, dinner, etc. Earlier this year I decided to invest in microblading. Microblading is basically a semi-permanent tattoo. (Don’t let the tattoo part scare you!) It provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments. And it is AWESOME. I went to Stacy at Bare Med Spa and, she did an amazing job at fully explaining this process, answering all of my questions, and finally, giving me brows I love! The total cost was around $600, and includes 2 visits after your consultation. During your consultation you’ll discuss shape, color, and test the pigment if you wish. The first appointment lasts about 2 hours during which you will undergo the service! They numb you and use a blade to make the perfect strokes that emulate real hair! The follow up appointment is about 6 weeks after when they will go over certain areas and fill in the color. Microblading lasts up to 2 years and after you just have to go in for color touch ups. This isn’t for everyone but for someone who has become brow obsessed over the last few years, it’s one of the best purchases I’ve ever made! Below are my brows prior to microblading, after my first appointment and when they were completely done and healed. I highly recommend microblading! Even if you’re just considering the process, go visit Stacy at Bare Med Spa! She is great and will answer any and all questions you may have.
Have a great Thursday!
