Eyebrows: what treatment should I get?

I want to get my eyebrows done for the first time. As a newbie to eyebrow treatments, I wondered which treatment is best. There are so many, I don't know what to choose!
Should I get them, waxed, threaded, tinted, or a combination of these treatments?
Also, I've seen some HD brows look stunning, yet I've seen some that look awful! The ones that look awful scare me! I'm fairly pale and have blonde hair so don't want to look ridiculous...which treatment would suit me best?

HD definitely.

Look on the salon Facebook page and there will be lots of examples of before/after.

You will then be able to separate the horrendous INSTAGRAM BROWS from the normal everyday person ones and choose the salon accordingly grin

Would HD brows look alright with my blonde hair and fair skin...they wouldn't look OTT? I'm just so scared of looking absolutely ridiculous after seeing the 'bad' HD brows!

HD for sure, just do your research and pick a stylist who has a solid portfolio of good ones.

Also, what is the process of HD brows? Why are they different from other treatments?

The good ones are experts in particular at getting just the right brow shape for your face. Mine needed changing quite a bit thanks to overplucking in the 90's and migrating half way up my forehead. Previous threaders hadn't adjusted this -
just kept my terrible shape but tidied up. They will tint your brows (not super dark, just to pick up the baby hairs so they look fuller) then thread and wax to get the desired shape for you and finally tweeze any remaining bits. They will apply make up and show you how to do this yourself properly.

You'll need to let them grow and not touch them for a good while before your appointment, which is a bit awful, but worth it. I had about 6 appointments while my new shape grew in and now I am confident to maintain myself with tweezers.
