Over a year ago now I met the amazing Debbie, waxer extraordinaire ( seriously she is incredible at it!) and an all round amazing business woman who I have such a big amount of time for. In just a year her salon, Westend Wax and Beauty has gone from strength to strength and the services it offers have continued to grow. Debbie welcomed Roslyn of Brow Envy in February this year and I had to get along and try out what was she had on offer.
I settled into the chair on Sunday and Ros walked me throw the HD brow treatment first, a seven step procedure including waxing, tinting, tweezing, threading. Ros was a complete professional throughout, I have had HD brows before at a couple of places and no one has ever spent as long explaining the procedure and discussing what I would like to get out of the treatment before. Working together in the consultation in this way meant I was totally confident in letting her just go to town on my brows.
As I have explained before I have long suffered from Trichotillomania, a condition that means I mindlessly pull out hairs which has resulted in me having majorly sparse little brows for years that I have worked hard to try and encourage to grow in. Because of this I am pretty nervous when It comes to anyone touching them but Ros had me completely at ease and I was excited to see what she could do for them. I was hoping for a really decent shape and to help encourage the new hairs to grow in the right way- and that is exactly what I got.
Ros set about working on the shape while I gabbed away to Debbie- she has years of experience on brows so the whole thing was completely painless, she showed me the shape she had managed to create before applying tint ( mixed to a shade I was happy with) and I was thrilled with how they looked. She had explained to me before starting why the shape they currently were in was ageing on my eyes and why moving the arch and altering the shape would be better, so I was delighted to see what she meant when I looked in the mirror!
After the tint she actually gave me the mirror to watch her apply the HD powder to help fill in my gaps and pointing out where to focus the powder to help even up my new shape ( I have a lot of growing to do!) this was such a nice touch as often you are left just to walk out without a clue as to how to do it yourself.
I was tickled pink with how they looked and could absolutely see where the changes to the shape had made a big difference, she walked me through the aftercare and explained how to work on training the brows to keep their shape. I was so impressed by the knowledge she had and the care she took over ensuring I had all the tools to help improve my brows in the long run.
