Reviewed: A brow tint and style
Ask anyone who counts down to getting their brows done and they’ll tell you: it’s amazing how refreshed, groomed and put-together you feel after a simple brow shape and tint. After all, those babies frame your whole face!
bh’s Sam booked an appointment to get the full brow treatment at The Parlour Room in Clovelly, Sydney – the salon that also tends to the brows of ex-The Bachelor Australia contestants, Sam Frost and Anna Heinrich. #browgamestrong
So, what did Sam think of her treatments? Check out her review below!
What treatment did you get?
I had two treatments at the same time: a brow tint and style.
Where did you go to get your brows done?
The Parlour Room, 216 Clovelly Rd, Clovelly NSW. It’s such a cute little place! It’s decked out in amazing floral wallpaper and has such a charm about it. I also loved that it’s away from the hustle and bustle of the city. If I were a local, I’d go every weekend.
What did the treatment involve?
I headed to a private room for a quick chat with my brow expert, Heather, before taking my place on the bed so I could lie down comfortably while she did her thing. She started with the tint and asked me how dark she should go (I said a bit darker than my hair – I can’t pull off intense Cara brows). She then applied the tint, which felt cool, but not overly wet. Then once that was removed, she proceeded to wax and shape my brows. She asked whether it was okay for her to shape the tops of my brows, as some people prefer to leave that area alone. I was really impressed with the way she talked me through the treatment and asked questions throughout to make sure I was getting what I wanted. The waxing and tweezing was over quickly, so there was very little pain. Once she was finished, she handed me a mirror to see the results. They looked great and there was minimal redness. Here is an example of Heather's work, in case you're curious:
How did you find your experience at the salon?
Honestly, I can’t think of one thing that would make it better! I didn’t have to wait long at all and I was in and out in fifteen minutes. The girls were really welcoming and professional so I felt comfortable straight away. I’d definitely go back.
Were you happy with the results?
I was so pleased with how my brows looked after. I’m always so nervous to get them done because it’s not like you can hide them if anything goes wrong. But the shape was perfect and even though she took hair from the top and bottom, they were still nice and full - just neater. The colour made them look so much fuller, which means I now don’t have to use as much pencil to fill them in. That’s a huge bonus!
Who would you recommend the brow tint and shape for?
I would recommend them for people who already have full brows with a decent shape, but just need a tidy-up and more definition. If you want to completely rework the shape of your brows, The Parlour Room also has a ‘Brow Rehab’ package.
At The Parlour Room, a brow tint costs $10 and a brow shape is $25. For more information or to make an appointment, call (02) 9665 9989 or visit theparlourroom.com.au.
