I have written before about my love of HD brows. I was one of those eager beavers who found tweezers at the age of 13 and plucked to my heart’s content. unfortunately I am now left with the non brow look and spend more time filling in my eyebrows than I would on liquid liner (that’s a lot)!
I had let my brows do their own thing for months, as I sometimes forget how good I feel after having them professionally tended to. Hyde Grooming recently moved 4 minutes away to South Anne Street in Dublin 2 (in Aviary lane hairdressers), and I stopped by to check out the new space and before I knew it, the lovely Liza had the HD tint working its magic on me (the plan had been to have a coffee and a catchup but she insisted!)
HD tint is much strong than regular brow or lash tint, so make sure you get a patch test in advance. I have seen what happens when people have a bad reaction and, trust me when I say, it is not a good look!
The funny thing about getting my eyebrows waxed and threaded, is that even though this process takes away hair, the shape it leaves gives the illusion of fuller eyebrows! The waxing gives a really precise line and shape to the brow, Liza also trims the hairs that are left behind for a neater look.
The whole process usually takes about 20- 30 minutes, and you feel like a brand new woman afterwards.
I should add that Liza also does mens eyebrows, but the finished look is less polished. Usually her male customers are looking to neaten their brows but do not want to look as though they have had any treatments.
I was really red in this pic, which is why I filtered it. I have particularly sensitive skin and always go red/ pink when I have any threading or waxing, so I would recommend that you bring a pair of sunglasses to pop on afterwards to disguises your skin if you are self-conscious. Whatever you do, DO NOT apply makeup to hide the pink skin as pores are open and it could cause a break out in spots over the coming days (I have experienced this first hand and it is not worth it!) .
I love having my eyebrows tended to by Liza, she really is fantastic at creating a shape that frames your face. I feel so much more confident when I am makeup free and I know that my brows are looking good! When my eyebrows have a precise shape it makes it so much easier to fill them in when applying makeup, as I am not trying to create an even shape myself.
With the move to Aviary lane, Liza has reduced the number of treatments she offers, focusing on eyebrows, lashes and facials, her specialities! I am hoping to get semi permanent lashes applied before my holiday next month, so keep your eyes peeled for a review on them!
I would love to read more posts on eyebrows so if you have posted about treatments such as semi-permanent brows, please post a link below!
