A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of going to Browhaus’ new outlet at Paragon, a cute and cozy camp-cabin like outlet.
See what I mean? So cute! Almost made me want to go camping. (Almost.)
I first found out about Browhaus through a friend back in, oh… 2008?
She had always gone to Browhaus, and while I always thought her brows looked good, I never wanted to try it for myself. (You see – when I was 14, I went to my first ever “brow shaping” at a salon and the woman went completely tweezer happy. It was the most ugliest thing you can ever imagine: thin, crazy-lady arched, it was horrible. After months and months of it finally all growing out, I told myself: never again. I always did my brows myself and didn’t allow anyone to touch it.)
So when Browhaus asked me to try out threading and tweezing with them, I was kinda hesitant: I wanted to, because, like I said – my friend had amazing brows, and I was curious about threading. At the same time though, I was hesitant because of my traumatic experience. But I told myself to calm the eff down, it is only hair, and it will grow back.
Still, once I was there, I was super annoying and mentioned not once, but FIVE times to both the PR lady and my brow stylist that I did not want an arch, and that I like my brows thick and natural looking.
Thankfully, I got beautiful brows.
Threading, as I was told, was going to be painful – a friend of mine goes threading all the time – but you know what? I loved it. It literally sounded like a zip being opened – it was so quick and it got off all the little baby hairs at the top, which makes such a difference. (This difference of course, is up to personal taste – while I think that threading looks good, personally I don’t think I like that very defined brow look. I still like my brows somewhat bushy, with the baby hairs still there, gives it a softer, more natural look.)
Either way, I really enjoyed my experience and if you like your brows more defined, threading is the way you want to go, and I’d definitely recommend it at Browhaus, especially the Paragon outlet in Singapore. My brows did feel a little sore after, but the brow stylist applied a Browhaus special, a lotion named “Peace” to calm the skin, and apparently, stop the hair from growing too fast back, which really worked. I can’t figure out how that happened, ’cause my brows usually grow really fast, so I am quite impressed!
A threading session is only S$15, and for something that is every few months, I think that’s really reasonable.
