Though the salon’s name implies an emphasis on brows, the aestheticians at Busy Brows specialize in all hair from the eyebrows downward. The threading artists wield their pure-cotton strings to add precise arches to brows, and waxing technicians delete hair from large areas to create smooth legs, bikini lines, and backs. The salon’s trained eyelash technicians, meanwhile, individually apply up to 80 lashes per eye or LashDip solutions to create a blacker-than-black effect. These long, dramatic lashes last for weeks and can convey the sentiment, “I have long eyelashes, even though I’m a firefighter and a mannequin.”
