|Before & After!|
So a few months back me and my best friend Jodie decided we wanted to try out HD brows after years of talking about it and being fed up with our eyebrow shape. As you can see above are my before and after photographs and I still can't quite believe the difference. My eyebrows before were extremely thin towards the end and when I drew them on the front of my eyebrow would become far too thick and overall they had no real definition.
At my first appointment we went through what sort of eyebrow shape and colour I wanted. I like my eyebrows quite dark compared to my hair colour and I explained that I would like more definition. HD brows is a process of training your eyebrow hairs to grow where you want them too to gain your desired eyebrow shape. Bearing this in mind though you can't go in thinking your going to come out with beautiful high arched eye brows if you don't have a natural arch at all, like me! Also in my consultation I discovered that my eyebrows were too far apart! When I first was told this I didn't really believe it and blamed it on genetics but now looking back I definitely over plucked the start of my eyebrow in my dodgy teenage years and I used to pluck away hairs that should of really been there. Looking at my brows now they look much better closer together ha!
After my consultation I hopped into the chair and waited anxiously for my brows to be transformed. I'm not going to lie, I was initially scared of how painful it was going to be as I'm a big wuss when it comes to pain but the whole process though was completely fine and it's nothing to worry about at all!
After the consultation the treatments begin! First you start by having your eyebrows tinted - I'd never had my eye brows tinted before and I seriously have no idea why. The tint worked really well on the ends of my eyebrows and made the hair appear much thicker. Also the surrounding areas of your eyebrows are also tinted so any additional hairs can be removed also!
Next your eyebrows are measured to make sure they are long enough and in the right place (which mine clearly weren't ha) After this its time for the waxing which like I said to my surprise didn't hurt as bad as what I thought it would! After waxing its on to threading which again isn't as painful as I thought! Finally any remaining hairs are tweezed and any long hairs are trimmed.
To finish off a powder or pencil is applied to define your shape further. For my eyebrows now I simply outline them with a pencil and slightly fill in the very front where I had originally over plucked. It's so much quicker and easier to fill in my eyebrows in the morning now! I'm going back in for my third treatment in a few weeks time and I'm so excited to see the results. In between appointments you aren't allowed to pluck or wax your eyebrows as you need to let your brows grow to gain your desired shape. I honestly wish I had this done earlier as it makes makeup look so much more polished and finished!
Have any of you tried HD brows?
