Brows on fleek


Natural-looking eyebrows are one of the hottest beauty trends right now. Gone are the days of over-plucked, pencil-thin brows these days a thicker more natural looking shape is desired. It has been said that you can get your eyebrows to naturally thicken and grow faster if you massage them with olive oil every night but there are lots of other options out there.

Finding the perfect eyebrow shape

  • If your face is round, they say you should go for a higher arch and stay away from a rounded brow shape.
  • For a square face, go for a curved brow shape that is more angular.
  • If you have a heart-shaped face go with a low arch and rounded brow shape, as it creates a more natural look.
  • If you have an oval face, choose a flat and soft-angled eyebrow shape.
To  help you identify how to shape your eyebrows place a pencil in a straight line along the side of your nose – this is going to be the start of the brow. Next, place the pencil along your nose and across your pupil. This will be the arch, then move the pencil so that the end of your nostril and the outer edge of your eye are in line – this is the end of your brow.
If you would prefer some help from a professional there are also many options out there:
HD Brows
HD Brows is a bespoke eyebrow treatment that is totally tailored to you. Expertly trained stylists combine custom-blended colour, hair removal and make up application for bespoke brows that suit you. The effects of the treatment usually last around 4-6 weeks, however this can vary depending on your hair growth.
Brow lamination
Eyebrow lamination focuses on creating shiny, smooth eyebrows. It is also known as an “eyebrow perm,” the high-shine effects are favoured by people who may be experiencing thinning or unruly brows.
Microblading  involves hundreds of tiny strokes that build a texture that looks like your own eyebrow hair. This can last 12-18 months, which is a big part of its appeal. Microblading cuts into the skin in the area of your eyebrows and implants pigment into the cuts.
Ombré brows
Ombré shading is a semi-permanent eyebrow styling technique that uses a small machine to place extremely thin dots of pigment into the skin, creating a soft-shaded brow pencil look.
