Last week I mentioned that I had booked myself into Carter Beauty to get my eyebrows done. It was not going to be a quick wax and tweeze type of affair for I had booked myself in for HD Brows.. ooh la la!
I preformed the patch test 24 hours beforehand and I was delighted my arm didn't fall off. I was greeted with a friendly hello when I entered the salon in Blackrock where I was then seated to fill out a few details about my past brow history. The lovely brow artist and beauty therapist doing my brows was @katie and she brought me into the room where I was getting my treatment done.
Lets get down to busines shall we, photo time!
Before: Yuk, look at the state of them brows ladies. Sometimes I use the excuse "I work with children, I don't really have to make an effort with my appearance" or "my man loves me just the way I am" but there is no excuse for this. I let them go far too long.
After Katie assessed my face which I didn't even notice because I was waffling on about god only knows what she applied a tint to both my brows. Bringing sexy back here! I have quite dark hairs so she used a brown and a small bit of black to darken the tint up. The tint is an amazing process because it catches all the fine hairs that you wouldn't usually see making your brows appear fuller.
Next using a pencil and string Katie designed a shape that would suit me. The string is pressed against the skin to give the straightest possible line which is then drawn in with pencil. My brows were then trimmed and everything outside the lines was then Waxed, threaded and tweezed.
I know right, AMAZING!
My brows appear fuller and longer. I have always wanted longer brows and have been the culprit of using too much brow pencil for many years ending up looking like a mad woman I am sure. The treatment cost me €50 and I am glad I had it done. I was in the salon for just over an hour but It wouldn't have been that long if Katie didn't take the photos for me. Thank you Katie!
Well worth it and I will be going back to Carter Beauty. It is recommended to go back every 4 weeks depending on how fast your hair grows back. Every subsequent HD brow treatment will only cost €35. If you are in a rush and haven't had much regrowth you could always book in for a Brow shape/tidy (€12) and tint (€12) which would take less time. That is just my suggestion I wasn't told this during my visit. If you still have your shape I think that would work.
Brows in Action!
I really enjoyed my visit, the staff were so friendly and meeting the owner Marissa was fun. The lovely Grecian decor and soft music playing in the background made the experience a very relaxing one too. I can't wait to go back. I wonder what I'll have done next!
