Hair & Beauty

The brows have it!


I was born with mousy brown hair. Well, actually I was born with silver hair, that turned into mousy brown. All my hair is thin and fair. Something that has never really bothered me, except for my eyebrows. For the past few years I’ve been trying all different products to make my eyebrows stand out a little more.


Whilst I was blonde, it wasn’t too bad, but when I have the pink hair, I like my brows to be a little darker. Usually I use Maybelline brow drama, as well as Benefit’s Brows a Go Go. I’ve also taken care of my brows myself, I’ve only ever plucked them myself. In fact, in high school, I would pluck some of my friends eyebrows for them!


Whilst out with my friend Sarah on Tuesday, we stopped by The Beauty & Brow Parlour in Southland. She was getting her eyebrows threaded, and I decided to throw caution the to wind and get my brows threaded and tinted! I am SO happy I did! First up, threading hurt! It wasn’t a terrible pain, very similar to plucking, but if you were pulling a few hairs at once. The lady asked if I wanted them a tinted slightly darker, and I replied with “nope, I want them DARK!”, so we went with a dark brown tint.


It has been a little strange when I catch sight of my reflection, I think it will take some time getting used to, but I do love them! It will be nice to not feel like I need to ‘put on my eyebrows’ before I leave the house!

Have you ever had your eyebrows waxed/threaded &/or tinted before?
