So, after hearing several people talk about HD Eyebrows I decided to give them a go myself and, following the treatment and it’s fab results, I have now started offering this in my bridal shop, Epernay Bridal! Since having this initial treatment many years ago I have added a new post as the results were significantly different and I am now an HD Stylist. Click here to read this now.
Initially I didn’t have a clue what they were, but I’ve noticed more and more people who are sporting an impeccably groomed set of brows – all thanks to this new treatment. Just look on the TV at the Coronation Street, Hollyoaks and X Factor girls.
I generally maintain my eyebrows myself as – after a few bad experiences which involved me only having half an eyebrow left on two occasions – I decided I would never trust anyone with my brows again. So agreeing to go and have the treatment done was a big decision in itself. There was also the cost aspect. Now, I’m not tight, but I did feel that paying £35 for my eyebrows done was quite steep. I was very intrigued so still decided to give it a go.
I searched high and low to find specific information about the treatment to no avail, so hopefully this blog will help others in the same position.
Here’s a picture of my eyebrows before (sorry about the quality):
I arrived at the salon and was taken up to the treatment room. I then asked the beautician to make sure that a) I still had eyebrows left at the end of the treatment and b) they weren’t too thin!
I was asked how dark I wanted my brows to be dyed. They are already dark and I didn’t want too much of a dramatic change so I decided on just a few shades darker to match my hair. She did advise me that I could go darker on the next treatment if I wanted.
She then took to trimming my eyebrows which I must admit was daunting considering I didn’t want to go much thinner! This was followed by a short tinting process.
Then came the waxing! Not painful at all and with lukewarm wax which was unusual. Each strip was positioned precisely in the right place and a tool was used to pull out all of the hairs which she didn’t want to remove. This took quite a while and the overall treatment took about 45 minutes. There was then some plucking and a general tidy up and I was passed the mirror…
Now, I wouldn’t say that it seemed too much different to a standard eyebrow treatment, however the results were completely different! My brows genuinely looked thicker, much more groomed and perfectly in place. I definitely think it was worth the money! They were slightly red (as normal with any treatment) and a mineral make-up was then applied to hide the colour.
I left very happy and went to meet my friend. The first thing she said was that my eyebrows looked great and asked where I’d had them done.
I then went into a client’s office (which is primarily full of men) and received several comments asking if I’d changed my hair as it looked nice! I figured that them noticing any type of change was good.
So, I’ve added a picture of my brows now – again, I know it’s not great quality but I hope it helps! I would definitely recommend the treatment to others!
