We’ve all, at some point in our lives, tried to do something to our eyebrows. Whether it’s by DIY plucking, cleaning, to shaping your own brows – we’ve all been guilty of overplucking or messing them up one way or another. There’s nothing quite like having neat, tidied up eyebrows done by a professional though. That’s why, Beauty Insider has gathered a few of must-visit eyebrow salons that’s located along the bustling streets of Raffles Place if you’re planning to get your brows done.
Which Eyebrow Services or Treatments Should You Get?
Because of the influence of beauty industry trends, pop culture, and celebrities or influencers, we’re constantly exposed to how eyebrow looks evolve and become to. You’ve probably come across threading, microblading, and the likes while scrolling through your Instagram feed. With so many eyebrow services and treatments available, which one should you get? Below are the most common services or treatments for eyebrows:
This method is the most popular and known eyebrow service. It uses a thin thread that’s twisted between fingers to gently remove the hair right from its roots. It’s a quick and efficient way to remove excess hair or hair from unwanted areas. Those who want to tidy up the brow area or shape the brows precisely, this is a great method to go for. It’s also sensitive-skin friendly and could last up to 2 weeks.
An alternative to threading, waxing is also another hair removal or brow shaping method. It uses a warm wax on specific areas of the brows and a wax strip is placed on top of it to remove it quickly up to its follicles. Those with thicker, bushier hair strands may opt for this one instead since it allows the wax to adhere properly before removal. It’s another quick, precise method that lasts up to 2-3 weeks.
Eyebrow Embroidery / Microblading
Microblading or alternatively called as Eyebrow Embroidery, is a versatile form of eyebrow tattooing method. It makes use of tiny needles and ink to draw precise, hair-like strokes to fill in sparse areas of the brows. Aside from that, it’s also a way to add definition and shape or make the brows look fuller. It’s a great choice for those who have patchy areas around the brows or those with thin brows. It’s a semi-permanent method that requires touching up after 12-18 months.
Brow Tinting / Brow Henna
This method is essentially just: your brows but better. Using a semi-permanent dye that’s close to your brow color, the aesthetician fills in the brows to make them darker and fuller. Choose this method if you have fine, sparse hair or if you want to shorten your makeup routine in the morning since treatment will give the eyebrows more definition and fullness. Typically, after a session, the dye lasts up to 1-3 months before re-touching.
It’s basically perm for your brows where it lifts, shapes, and sets your brows hair in place to hide areas with gaps. An alternative for Microblading, it gives your brows a thicker and more defined look. The finished look is a slicked up, feathery brows done without any invasive treatments or pigments added and that lasts up to 4 weeks.
