The Art of The Brow

BY: Sarah McManus | Nov 8, 2013
The Art of The BrowIt is true, brows really shape the face. They can transform your look. Right now, we are seeing fuller, more natural brows. The ultra thin, barely there style is a look of the past. Recovering from over plucking in high school can take time. We have all abused our brows at one point but there is help. With some patience, everyone can achieve those runway model brows. There are so many options when it comes to the first step, grooming brows. Some people may just need a clean up for those spare hairs and some may need an overall shaping. Waxing is the most popular method for achieving an arched look and maintaining it. You can also thread the eyebrow which removes a strip of hair at one time. It can be a bit more precise than waxing but a few may find it a bit uncomfortable. Another option is laser hair removal but this is permanent and expensive. blogger_city_guide_boston_art_of_brow_1_400c600 Beaucage Salon on Newbury Street is a great place to start.
