Do any of you find that you have naughty, stray brow hairs that just will not behave? Let us guess, you have groomed and filled-in your brows beautifully, but there is a section of hair (perhaps at the arch) that just won’t stay down? We know all about it! (more…)

“A nicely shaped brow defines the eye area,” says Margo Allen, a talented esthetician from the newly opened Benefit Brow Bar, located in the Yorkville location of Holt Renfrew. They “build a beautiful frame for the eyes,” she says. A properly executed brow can even make you look like you are catching more shut-eye than you actually are. (more…)

Your brows are a little unruly, perhaps you notice that horror of all horrors you are getting a moustache…what do you do?! There are a couple of different ways to remove hair from your face – waxing is probably the most popular with tweezing a close second.
My sensitive skin has an aversion to waxing and I always end up looking like I have a disease only hours after a waxing session. Well rashes be gone! I am now a threading fan. This Middle Eastern tradition has been around for a very long time and is incredibly inexpensive. For only $7 CAD I had my eyebrows groomed and my ‘stache removed.
What is threading? It is cotton thread twisted tightly to pull out hair in a precise manner.
How is it done? The ‘Threader’ holds one end of the cotton thread in their teeth and the other in the left hand. The middle is looped through the index and middle fingers of the right hand. The ‘Threader’ then uses the loop to trap a series of unwanted hairs and pull them from the skin.
It sounds painful but it is not at all and will last to approx 4 weeks and can be done on the upper lip, chin, eyebrows, sideburns and cheeks.
If you are in Vancouver I would highly recommend Kohli’s on 49th and Main Street. Their phone number is 604-327-2779.
