Brows are my most favorite thing to discuss, aside from skin. Groomed brows are a big deal, it is the outline to our expressions, and even without makeup, brows make everything just right. Last Monday, I went to Wink Brow Bar in New York city to try brow threading and tinting, a first for me and suffice to say, I loved my experience at this salon. The treatment took less than half an hour and results were fabulous.
I need to start by stating that I am not a fan of wax in the face especially in the brow area. From previous experience, I feel that wax burns, irritates sensitive skin like mine and can create more harm than good, if you take too much hair for example (the horror). Threading is much more precise and on contact less painful because it removes hair at once using a cotton thread. I am purposely posting makeup-less photos to show you the power of a good groomed brow, hope you don’t mind? Some days I love going out without any makeup on, it feels good to let my skin breathe.
Wink Brow Bar is a well-run salon, it is pristine, professional and everything is done to the highest standards. As soon as I sat down on my chair, I noticed the brow tech using anti-bacterial in her hands, perfect table manners. When she started threading my brows, it went by fast and strategically – it wasn’t a huge removal of hair namely because, I admit it, my brows have good natural shape. Upon finishing my threading, it was suggested I’d get some tinting to even out some sparse growth at the end of my brows, to which I agreed to, much needed. The process of threading at Wink Brow Bar did not hurt. Soon after I noticed some very mild redness (which is normal as my skin is pretty sensitive but I wasn’t in pain or worried, it went away fast, and without pain).
The tinting part of my brow treatment took literally minutes. I had a tiny amount placed all along my brow, heavier around the ends. The before/ after pictures will show the difference this treatment made. Results of the brow tint should last up to six weeks, maybe less depends on the hair. Also for threading, I grow hair between four to six weeks, plucking in between. Overall, I LOVED my brows after having them done at Wink Brow Bar in NYC. One more thing, you get a super relaxing head massage with your brow service, who doesn’t love a little extra TLC?
