No 1 -Sparse Growth

DIAGNOSIS

Do you have sparse or over-plucked brows? Not everyone was born with naturally thick, bushy brows. Sadly, sparse brows can be down to over-plucking, scars, ageing or just lack of hair growth.

The 90’s saw the return of over-plucking with a vengeance: thin was in. Stars such as Pamela Anderson relied heavily on eyebrow pencil to give the illusion of any hair being there at all!

SOLUTION

If tweezing is something you do too regularly, put them down! You’ll need to work on a re-growth programme and use make up in-between treatments to help you along your way to brow perfection.

To begin with, let us begin your brow re-growth journey and get those thin brows more suited to you. Your Stylist will be able to assess your brows and show you a range of our brow products, recommending which they think is the most suitable for you.

Our Lash&Brow Booster is something we highly recommend in between brow treatments. It’s enriched with active ingredients such as Argan Oil known to help enhance length and volume and is ideal for men and women who have brittle, weak, thin, or short eyelashes and brows. The transparent gel fortifies and conditions lash and brow follicles leaving hair looking thicker, whilst added Provitamin B5 and Red Clover Extract moisturises hair making it a perfect night-time treatment or for use prior to mascara application.

Need to fake it while you make it? Growing back hair doesn’t happen overnight so you’ll need something to help give you some shape in the meantime. Our retractable Browtec pencil is perfect.

No 2 Uneven Brows

DIAGNOSIS

Do you have uneven brows that you can’t get to match? Your eyebrows should both sit on the fatty pad which is on top of the eye socket, but this isn’t always the case which may be due to: Too much hair removal, anti-ageing injections or Ptosis – (a drooping or falling of the upper eyelid caused by weak muscles.)

SOLUTION

Our HD Brow treatment aims to get the dimensions of both brows as similar as possible, however we’re realistic and understand they will never be identical – after all, as the Founder of HD brows, Nilam Holmes-Patel says, your brows are sisters, not twins.

We recommend visiting us every 4-6 weeks so we can work on getting your brows as symmetrical as possible and once that’s been achieved – it’s simply a case of maintenance.

No 3- No Arch

DIAGNOSIS

Do your brows have a lack of an arch? You’re brows are just too flat, straight with not a lift or an arch in sight? Don’t panic! Thanks to Kendall Jenner and Victoria Beckham, flatter brows are becoming all the rage! Even so, if you want to raise your arches, we can help you.

SOLUTION

If you have brows that lack an arch, we can gradually turn those flat, straight brows into ideal arches designed just for you, step by step. With regular treatments, your stylist will work on lifting and lowering your brows in all the right places, to get them perfectly designed for you.

TOP TIP

Want those arches now? Fake it till you make it with our Browtec pencil. Start by brushing the brows upwards, to open up the eyes and give the brows an effortless lift. Then place a few soft pencil strokes at the top of the arch following your current hair growth, giving them some natural height. You can then fix everything in shape by using our clear Brow Beater gel (like hairspray for brows).

No 4- Men’s Brows

DIAGNOSIS

Men, you too deserve groomed brows! Often men are worried about having their brows shaped as many think that a brow Stylist will over work them and make them look too feminine – not us.

SOLUTION

Men’s brows should look groomed, but not perfectly shaped. Ideally the bulb, arch and tail should be of a similar size. It’s all about keeping the brows trim, not thin.

We advise you to visit us before trying to alter the shape of your brows yourself – one wrong move with the tweezers could leave a disastrous result. Our Stylists will leave your brows perfectly groomed, but still looking masculine.

No 6- Make Up Dilemma

DIAGNOSIS

Do you have a brow make up dilemma? Not everyone is born with beautifully thick brows like Cara Delivigne (if only). However, this doesn’t mean you should pick up the darkest brow pencil you can find and fill the whole brow in, often referred to as the infamous ‘scouse-brow’.

SOLUTION

Although it is today’s fashion to have a much fuller brows, we still want to create something that looks natural. Using a one shape fits all approach can leave you with the wrong artificial shape that doesn’t necessarily suit your face shape or flatter your features. Let us design the perfect shape bespoke for you – you can then follow this easily at home.

TOP TIP

Don’t be too heavy with your brow make up – #LessIsMore. Make sure when using a pencil you always keep it really sharp to ensure you get a crisp finish. Our Pro Pencil is the perfect tool to create the illusion of hair strokes. When adding make up to the brow, keep the fronts soft to avoid any heavy looking square brow.

Expert Tips

Hair

Scalp & Shave

  • Go with the grain. Shaving against the direction of hair growth can increase the chances of ingrown hair and razor burn. You’re better off shaving with the grain. Not sure how to figure out which way your hair grows? The best time to determine the pattern of your beard is to run your hand along beard growth approximately one to three days after shaving.
  • Coarse, heavy beard? Shaving might leave your skin irritated. To help the discomfort, you need to lift and soften the hair follicles prior to shaving. Apply a shave guard, like Pre-Shave Guard, before you apply shaving cream. This provides a cushion between the razor and your skin.
  • Ditch the alcohol. You know that sting that occurs when you slap on your after-shave? That’s alcohol. While it might have antiseptic properties, it can cause irritation and fail to replace your skin’s natural protective barrier. Instead, use a product like Post-Shave Balm, which contains Licorice Root to help reduce irritation and discomfort from shaving.
  • Lighten up. Pressing too hard with your razor won’t deliver a closer shave. It will just cause more irritation, or if you’re not careful, a painful nick.

Slow and steady wins. Using a steady, constant motion when shaving will yield the best results. Aim to make each stroke between one and two inches long.

 

  • Rinse your razor. Every time. To get a closer shave, make sure you rinse the blade clean before each stroke. The more build-up accumulates in your razor, the patchier your results will be.Now that you have the know-how, your next shave doesn’t have to be an unpleasant experience. Invest in the time and products you need for your best results yet.
