Looking for an expert in Toronto to clean up your eyebrows? We found the perfect place. Eye Love Brow & Beauty Bar invited me in for a brow consult and shaping ($30 for 30 minutes) to help me figure out what the heck to do with my sparse Asian eyebrows. Sure there's not much happening up there but my brows seemed to lack shape and definition. Mary came to my rescue with her brand new brow shop which just opened in January 2012.
In her second floor studio, Mary also offers makeovers, beauty lessons and make up application for your big night out (from $40-$65). Besides being a brow expert, Mary is a professional make up artist. In addition to brow shaping - lash & brow tinting and facial waxing are also available (from $10-$25) so you can get everything taken care of at once.
Hanging with owner Mary Dang is like chatting with an old friend. Mary is super easy to get along with and takes the time to get to know each and every one of her clients. It's the personal non-pretentious service that we love. You can tell how knowledgeable Mary is about brows, getting it right means an instant face lift. She's got a cult following in Toronto too! I later found out that several of my friends see Mary on the regular for their brow fix.
The finished product (above). My brows are in tip top shape, looking clean and giving my eyes a bit of a lift too (follow-up appointments are only $25). After some waxing, tweezing and snipping, Mary gives me a mini-lesson on how to fill in my brows so I don't end up looking like a drag queen. Speaking of, 25% of her clients are men just looking for a clean up. So guys, if you have thick unruly brows - don't think about tweezing them yourself. Leave it to a professional.
