I've always had a thing about my eyebrows. Whatever I do they just don't look quite right. It's not for want of trying - believe me my brows have undergone the most rigorous of changes. They have been bushy/plucked/waxed/dyed/drawn in and finally just left to settle in some kind of unsatisfactory state. So when threading came into the arena I thought I was a lost cause which was rather stupid of me given that as a make up artist I know that a well-groomed brow really does shape and frame the face.
|BEFORE: Oh Dear!|
The Shavata Brow Bar I visited is inside House of Fraser in Victoria SW1. I was keen to try this particular place because of Shavata herself - the renowned threader to the stars. She has worked in the industry for over 20 years and the brow bars are an extension of her philosophy to give clients a 'mini face lift.'
Once I arrived, I relayed my predicament to Poona, the therapist who was assessing the damage. I felt in very safe hands as Poona's brows were immaculate and lets be fair, mine couldn't really get any worse. She immediately told me that there were bits that I needed to let grow (places I'd been over-zealous with the tweezers) but that it wouldn't be that long before my brows would look how I'd always dreamed. Apparently, they weren't weird or malformed afterall.
The threading itself was relatively painless, basically just like a little pinching sensation and as the whole process took less than fifteen minutes, it was nothing I couldn't live with. The end result was astonishing! My eyebrows were neat, tidy and incredibly I had an arch. I have never had an arch.

So all in all, I am delighted with the outcome of my threading experience. It has taken 27 years but I think I'm finally happy with the way my eyebrows look.

There’s a whole line of Shavata brow grooming products which you can buy HERE. I bought the brow tamer for £14.50 which is absolutely genius.
There are Shavata Brow Studios Manchester, Belfast, Leeds, Reading, Edinburgh, Harrods & House of Fraser in London Richmond, EC4, SW1, W1C.
