When it comes to eyebrows, it’s far too easy to go very wrong. I’m terrified of leaving myself looking perpetually surprised, so I tend to leave my brows alone, picking up a few stray hairs here and there when absolutely necessary. So, when I heard that Shavata herself (she of the eponymous brow bars) was headed to Edinburgh, I threw the tweezers into the back of the drawer, and didn’t so much as look at them for a good two months.
The result was brows which were more than a little bushy (to be honest, I didn’t realise quite how out of control they were until I was in the chair). Not to worry though, Shavata got to work using only a few strands of thread. A completely bespoke service, Shavata (and her specially trained therapists) look at your face shape and structure to find the shape which best suits you. Then brows are snipped and threaded into submission. Without so much as a twinge, fifteen minutes later my brows were transformed – gone was the mess, and in it’s places were sleek arches.
The difference that perfect brows have made to my makeup routine is insane. Rather than trying to deal with unruly brows, a quick flick of a pencil and gel and I’m done!
