i cannot stop looking in the mirror at myself blush

they look brilliant. perfect, tiny hairstrokes, a lovely arch, a perfect browny black colour exactly like my natural hair colour, and they are completely symetterical (sp?) . they completely open up my face and eyes and i have no make up on at all and yet i somehow look lightly made up and natural.

i have eyebrows for the first time, like, ever AND I WILL NEVER HAVE TO DRAW THEM ON AGAIN! well for at least a year anyway

i love them

one downside - it FOOKING hurt

Hi everyone. I'm hoping to get an answer to this very old thread regarding semi-permanent eye brows! I want to get mine done and have seen a voucher off that is vastly below normal salon prices but would rather pay top dollar for a good job. So my post is really about whether salons/processes vary much or is it a fairly standard process now and who would you recommend in the High Wycombe/Buckinghamshire area to deliver this treatment? Thank you.

For info - I read lots of the posts on semi permenant make up before going off to have my eyebrows done and thought others might appreciate the feedback: I'm a fair (ie none) eyebrowed twin mum who has time to put on eyeliner and mascara but rarely makes it to the eyebrow stage before one toddler takes on the other...

I took a deep breath and went to see Andrea Grollet after I saw an article in a newspaper. I say deep breath because I was terrified of coming out with Essex brows (sorry guys). I've now had my first two sessions and we started out nice and slow! Shape, colour etc and not an Essex brow (sorry again) in sight. They are really nice and subtle and I will definitely be going back. I'm one of those blonds who has nothing if they don't dye or use liner and being a big fan of eyeliner means I need the balance of eyebrows.

the only downside is the small amount of pain (worth it and short lived), the first 5 days can be a bit unnerving (it's quite a lot darker and my step daughter kindly told me I had stripey eyebrows... funny but RUDE - as she would say) and it isn't cheap. But then nothing seems to be these days.

I have eyebrows - woop woop!

Can you have this semi permanent eyebrow done when you are pregnant??

HerrenaHarridan Tue 29-Oct-13 20:12:29

Well I learnt something new today! Who knew?!?

My eyebrows are also just there, I ignore them pretty much all of the time.
Glad your happy though.

Only popped up to wave to the other people with alopecia. smile

I'm the same with eyebrows Contrieau. Mine are thick and bushy so am always plucking.

Eyeliner sounds good but I bet it hurts like a bitch.

CointreauVersial Tue 29-Oct-13 19:39:40

I'm another one mystified by all this eyebrow talk. OK, I get it if you've suffered hair loss.

But I don't do anything to my eyebrows, beyond whipping off the odd stray one. Don't possess an eyebrow pencil. My eyebrows are just.....there.

I get the feeling I'm horribly out of date.confused grin

Now this is one cosmetic procedure that I will,have once my eyesight goes and my eyebrows become sparse!

At the moment I am happy to use my eyebrow powder and it lasts all day until I remove it. Thankfully it doesn't take me very long and I am adept at applying it.

However, I think semi permanent eyebrows are fantastic, especially if you have none or very sparce eyebrows and good eyebrows make such a difference to your face.

I get you all look gorgeous.

Holly I hope you are in paris wink

MoomieAndFreddie Wed 21-Nov-12 14:48:25

oh holly why could you not have posted that a couple of weeks ago?! Lol

Do you have a website or anything? Any photo's of your work? And where are you? Sorry for all the questions its just some of my friends want theirs done after seeing mine!

gingerchick Wed 21-Nov-12 12:57:42

What area are you in HoLLY I really want mine done!

HoLLYT86 Wed 21-Nov-12 12:50:51

by the way its not just eyebrows you can get done you can also get eyeliner and lip liner! I have it all done and its great! All i do in the morning is stick a bit of tinted moisturiser on (sometimes mascara if i fancy it) and i look like i have spent a long time perfecting my make up its great! Especially when you go on holiday or go swimming you still look fab and no smudges all over your face!

djembe try a powder instead of pencil, use a slanted eyebrow brush and the results will be much more natural. Estée Lauder counters do a brow service free of charge and will show you how to apply smile

I'm still googling for a place in Paris, waiting for a call back from one lady who is said to be the best in the area.

No prices on her website though hmm I can see this is going to be expensive!

Djembe Mon 19-Nov-12 12:02:20

Ooh I'd like this if not so £££ !

I am too scared to even use an eyebrow pencil in case it looks ridiculously fake, despite having horrendous overplucked eyebrows which weren't ever a nice shape anyway. I need to venture to a make-up counter and be taught how.

MoomieAndFreddie Mon 19-Nov-12 11:42:26

omg it would be awful!

Dh says the last time he went for a tattoo, the tattoo parlour was advertising permanent eyebrows, eyeliner, lip liner etc

but the difference is with semi permanent make up they only last a maximum of 5 years whereas tattoos are FOREVER (other than having them lasered off at great expense and pain)

fromparistoberlin Mon 19-Nov-12 10:48:00

indeed, I mean they are basically a tattoo, right?

can you imagine if they wont wrong! shudders!

MoomieAndFreddie Mon 19-Nov-12 10:21:10

no, definitely not fromparis

i have seen it cheaper, but TBH i really think this is one thing that you don't want to get on the cheap, as you would have to live with the results far longer than you would a crap haircut or dodgy leg wax or something
