HD Brows: Tried and Tested
by Nicky Howden, August 2011
Eyebrows make a big difference.
Get the shape right and you can change the shape of your face, open up your eyes and even knock years off you. But creating the perfect arch takes skill and precision, which is why it’s best left to the experts. I’ve always been a fan of threading but recently heard the celeb favourite HD Brows at Zen Llfestyle is the next step to well groomed eyebrows; perfect for those who like a more defined shape. I checked in with Gemma – whose eyebrows, on inspection, were reassuringly perfect. Seven steps of primping and preening later, threading, waxing, plucking and brow tinting, it all goes on here – and I was stripped of any rogue hairs and eyebrows shaped perfectly and looklng natural and fuller, thanks to a brow tint that also lightly colours the skin beneath to give the illusion of thicker brows.
The results are impressive and athough initially a darker shade to my natural colouring (it takes a few days for the tint to die down), I can see the addiction and would definitely return. If you’re tempted, lay off the tweezers and let your eyebrows grow out a bit. Then let the expertly trained team at Zen Lifestyle tame and sculpt them with HD Brows. Appointments take 30 minutes and cost £38.
