An expertly shaped brow is one of the easiest ways to give your look instant pick-me-up — whether you’re correcting asymmetry or getting an immediate face-lift. One of our NYC brow experts, Angela, walks us us through her fave do’s and don’ts.

Don’t trail your tail. “One of the biggest mistakes that I see that other estheticians are doing when they shape brows: they’re not looking at the person’s facial features and leaving the brow tail too long. That will get you downward pointed brows and will make your face look sad and droopy.”

Do stay true to you. “My philosophy in doing brows is that there is no one size fits all approach to sculpting the face. Everyone has different brows, full or thin. The important thing is to always create a brow that makes a strong statement to accessorize your eyes and face.”

Don’t skip the consultation. “Before I do brows, I take time in analyzing each guest’s facial structure, personality, lifestyle, and age. The consultation helps me understand how to create a perfect look and shape for each individual, while keeping a natural look.”
