Has anyone tried HD brows?

I have funny shaped eyebrows and my friend said this company are amazing. However, she is a journalist and got brilliant treatment. Can anyone recommend an actual practitioner on London who they trust and found amazing please? Thanks

I had it done when I trained in it myself. It does look great, especially if you're trying to achieve a great shape after overplucking. Unfortunately I haven't had much time to practice so couldn't offer to do it myself but if you contact Neelam Patel at the HD Brows academy she has a register of all the practitioners who have trained with her that are carrying out the treatments. So I'm sure she will be able to point you in the right direction.

I have them done about every 6 weeks.
It cost £26 (I'm in the North west).

I love it. Your friend probably told you but it is a combination of threading, waxing, shaping and shading.
It took several sessions to get the shape we wanted but I'm happy with the results.

I had this done last year (also in the North West) after many years of overplucking it has really given me a great shape. I had 6 sessions and then felt I could maintain myself at home.

I've had a look on the website but it doesn't really tell you very much. What is it they actually do? How do they colour the eyebrows? Is it semi-permanent?

It's just a lengthy eyebrow reshape session.

The beautician looks at the shape of your face and the state of your eyebrows and then over several sessions gets the eyebrows into a better shape.
Clearly this works best with eyebrows that have been plucked into a bad shape in the name of fashion over the years or haven't had any attention.

Like I said it is a combination of waxing, threading and tweezering. The use a pencil if there are any gaps until the gap has re grown and you are given an eyebrow brush which you have to use as often as you remember to help the brows lie in the desired shape.

The results have been good. I also get my eye lashes permed once every three months and tinted every 6 weeks or so.

Mmm, okay. I'm fine with the shape of my eyebrows but due to overplucking they are a wee bit bald. I've been penciling in (and brushing) for years...

doesn't seem to be anything I can't do, now that I've looked at it.
