A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of going to Browhaus’ new outlet at Paragon, a cute and cozy camp-cabin like outlet.
See what I mean? So cute! Almost made me want to go camping (almost.)
I first found out about Browhaus through a friend back in, oh 2008? She had always gone to Browhaus, and while I always thought her brows looked so good, I never wanted to try it for myself. You see – when I was 14, I went to my first ever “brow shaping” at a salon and the woman went completely tweezer happy. It was the most ugliest thing you can ever imagine: thin, crazy-lady arched, it was horrible. I looked like a freaking cartoon character – you know, the evil characters? Yuck! I wrote about the horrors here, and after months and months of it finally all growing out, I told myself: never again. I always did my brows myself and didn’t allow anyone to touch it.
So when Browhaus asked me to try out threading and tweezing with them, I was kinda hesitant: I wanted to, because, like I said – my friend had amazing brows, and I was curious about threading. At the same time though, I was hesitant because of my traumatic experience. But I told myself to calm the eff down, it is only hair, it will grow back. But still, once I was there, I mentioned not once, but FIVE times to both the PR lady and my brow stylist that I DO NOT want an arch, I like my brows thick and natural looking.
Thankfully, I got beautiful brows and I cannot gush about them enough. Threading, as I was told, was going to be painful – a friend of mine goes threading all the time – but you know what? I LOVED it. It felt awesome. It sounded like a zip being opened – it was so quick and it got off all the little baby hairs at the top, which I didn’t know made such a difference. I am so in love with threading! My brows did feel a little sore after, but afterward, the brow stylist applied a Browhaus special, Peace, a lotion to calm the skin, and apparently, stop the hair from growing too fast back, which really worked. I can’t figure out how that happened, ’cause my brows usually grow really fast, so I am quite impressed! I’ll upkeep it as much as I can, but when my brows go crazy again, I’ll definitely be back. A threading is only $15, and for something that is every few months, I think that’s pretty reasonable.
Overall, I’m really happy with my time at Browhaus. I have a few thin parts on my brows, so they kindly gave me their in-house lash and brow serum, Extend, to try out. I’ll update you all on that later, I’ve been obsessively using it!
Has anyone had any experiences with Browhaus? Let me know what you think.
