Cookie Cutter Brows vs Natural Beauties

I found this beautifully written article in Vogue last week and wanted to share it with you, along with my thoughts on the art of brow shaping.I truly believe that the 1980s was the absolute worst decade for brows, and since then we’ve gone through some really dramatic changes – from thin and dramatic to full and natural. I’m excited to see the strong, iconic brows of the past (think Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn) make a comeback on today’s it-girls. Cara Delevingne and Khaleesi, I’m looking at you.Our philosophy at the Queen Bee Brow Bar has always been that, regardless of what the look du jour is, your brows should compliment and be proportional to your face.  We only hire artists in our brow department: those technicians who have an innate sense of how a brow should be shaped, who can listen to a client’s wants and needs and, perhaps, gently demonstrate to a client how sharply chopped, stenciled or waxed brows might cause them to look like everybody else but not themselves.  We will show you how you can fill in thin brows with powder to achieve a dramatic evening look, make your brows look full but soft for daytime and how tinting brows and lashes can achieve a thicker look in just 10 minutes.  As a brow technician myself, I can’t reiterate enough what an art brow shaping is and just how much joy and satisfaction one feels when they’ve given a client a boost of confidence.
