HD Brows At BBs Brow Bar

Happy Monday Lovelies!

Ever since visiting the HD Brows stand at the LFW Handpicked Media Event I've been fascinated with having the full HD Brows treatment to re-define my brows.
If you don't already know, HD (high definition) Brows offers "the full monty" in eyebrow artistry, from the initial consultation, the treatment right through to the aftercare.  

I went along to BBs Brow Bar in Leicester's Highcross, which is a fully accredited HD Brows salon. I'm really fussy when it comes to having any kind of treatment & as such am always worried the end results will not live up to my high expectations, especially with something as important as your eyebrows which frame & balance out your face.
As soon as I met with Cindy the salon owner I knew I was going to be in safe hands...

instagram of my patch test
Following a patch test to ensure I wasn't going to have any nasty allergic reactions, I went along on Friday to get my new HD Brows...

First we discussed shape & colour level. It was important for me that my brows weren't going to be too dark & remained natural looking. Cindy advised me how she would achieve this.

...warning: lots of scary close ups of my face to follow!!

tinting the brows
The first part of the treatment was to tint the brows, as my brows are over plucked in areas, the tinting would pick up any tiny facial hairs which would help to create the finished shape.

outlining the brow shape
Following the tinting, Cindy outlined the shape of brow we had discussed so she had a base to work with. 

waxing away unwanted hair
On with the waxing...here was me thinking I'd be wincing at this point, but it was actually not at all painful & I remained relaxed.

threading
I found the threading part of the process fascinating...who knew cotton could be sooo useful & the precision Cindy got when she threaded my brows was amazing! This was followed by some tweezing.

the finishing touches
Tools for the job...using a specially chisel shaped brow pencil, brow palette, brow beater & mascara brush we were onto the finishing process, which was to fill in the areas that were overplucked & set the brow hair in the direction it should go, highlighting & defining the brows even more.


Et voila!

I'm soooo in love with my new HD brows! I never knew there was so much to brow artistry & what a difference this could make to your whole appearance, it has really opened up a whole new world to me.


It's important to be able to maintain this look on a regular basis, so the aftercare was just as key as the process itself. Cindy talked me through how to achieve the look using the HD Brows aftercare products & gave me a card which detailed where I needed to continue growing my brows.


If you fancy giving your brows the creme de la creme of brow treatments & live in the Leicester or Peterborough area make sure you contact BBs Brow Bar as they're currently offering £5 off the price of the HD Brow treatment (RRP £30) throughout October.
I loved the personal, thorough & professional service I was given during my treatment.

Alternatively, visit the HD Brows website to see where there's an accredited salon near you.
