HD Brows - The Review

Eyebrows are BIG news right now
in fact the bigger the better, Cara Delevingne anyone?!
(Major eyebrow envy)
I am all about the eyebrows! 
They make such a massive difference to your face and can really change your entire look.

If you are like me and spend a good 10 minutes every morning painstakingly filling in your eyebrows to get the perfect arch
 then HD brows could definitely be for you.

For Christmas I bought my mum a voucher for a local beauty salon B-lush
She decided to put it to good use by getting herself some new brows! 

To get the perfect brows there is a seven step process involved

Step One - Preparation & Assesment 
Your HD Stylist will analyse your face shape
 and work with you to decide which shape brows will suit you best.

Step Two - Tinting 
This step will even out your natural colour or darken it depend on which look you want 

Step Three - Waxing
Specially formulated hot wax is used to shape and define your brows and remove unwanted hairs 

Step Four - Trimming 
Specialist scissors are used to trim back any long unruly hairs 

Step Five - Threading
This an ancient method where thin cotton thread is used to really precisely remove hairs 
I've had this done before and thought it was quite painful but it's really effective! 

Step Six -Tweezing
At this stage any leftover stray hairs are tweezed to perfect the brow

Step Seven - Finish
A skin calming tonic is used to treat the skin. Special mineral powders are then applied to camouflage any redness. HD Brow Beater is then applied to the brows to set them in place.
The stylist will then use the HD Powder Palette to fill in any sparse areas.

Last but not least you will be advised on eyebrow care at home. This way you will know how to take care of your new eyebrows in between visits.
Some of the products are available to purchase in the salon to help you with after care
My mum bought the brow palette so she can fill in any gaps at home 

It comes in three different shades 
Bombshell, Foxy and Vamp


The colours in the palettes can also be used as eye shadows and liners
So you are getting 3 products in 1 

So now for the results 

You can see for yourself what a difference it has made to her eyebrows 
Before, they were quite sparse looking with very little definition 
After, they are so much fuller and sleeker looking 

My mum was really pleased with results and has already booked her next appointment
just before she goes on holiday! 

If you love this look you can find an HD Brow stylist near you
using the Salon Finder

  3. What a difference! Looks great xx

  4. Those look great, I've not had HD brows before but I'm booked in for next Thursday in Zen, Edinburgh. I'm a bit nervous though I'm a total brow maniac and I'm really particular about them so hopefully they will be ok. x

  5. Her eyebrows look so good! I really want them done but I wasn't sure how much difference they would really make.. but these look great! x
