This weekend, I tried out the new Bombay Brow Bar at the Shangri-La Hotel location. Founded by brow-obsessed sisters, Ravy Mehroke and Amy Minhas, Bombay Brow Bar promises perfectly sculpted brows for $23 in 20 minutes. The main service includes: brow shaping, arch perfecting, trimming, forehead massage with rosewater gel, and brow finishing with complimentary brow makeup.
Unfortunately for me, my Asian genes did not bless me with a lot of eyebrow hair to begin with. However, with their threading and shaping techniques, I was very happy with how even and more defined my brows looked after the service. Here are some photos from start to finish:
Step 1: Starting with no makeup, the Brow Artist shows me where the start and end of my brows should be, along with the top point of the arch.
Step 2: Brow artist draws with white eyeliner the shape that she will work within during threading.
Step 3: Brow artist threads above and below my natural brow and trims shape to complement the arch.
Step 4: Brow Artist uses an angled brush and dark brown brow powder to fill in the brows. Sets with brow wax and uses a q-tip to perfect shape. Voila!
I loved the professional service and atmosphere of Bombay Brow Bar. They have various locations and the Shangri-La one is now my favourite. They also offer brow services for men, eyelash tinting and brow tinting. Here is my rating of Bombay Brow Bar:
Location: 9/10 (very central but expensive street parking if you’re driving)
Overall Fab Rating: 46/50
