Painless threading? Yes, it can be totally possible! No sweat, sister!
Introducing BROW HAUS, a full-service brow and lash grooming salon. According to them, they’re “built for the urbanite who demands not just function, but function and style”.
Before Brow Haus, I only had less than ten encounters with eyebrow threading. I know that eyebrows can make or break how you look so I invest in it by having my brows professionally groomed with a clean blade or pluck them myself using a tried-and-tested memorized guide. (You can also access it here.)
Anyway, I’ve only had very few threading experiences because it was freakin’ painful. For the times when I fooled myself into thinking that threading can eventually be bearable (like Brazilian waxing), I failed. Tears still well up and I’m still curling up in pain…figuratively. Then I remind myself that old French phrase “Il faut souffrier pour etre belle” which means “you must suffer to be beautiful”. But really, suffering is missing lunch. Eyebrow threading was torture.
Then BROW HAUS came. When they opened at the 3rd floor of Abreeza Mall’s Corporate Center a.k.a. Mall Extension, their super nice Marketing Manager, Monique, sent me an SMS inviting me to try out their service. And my, it wasn’t only awesome, it was life-changing.
For the first time, I didn’t cry during the usually excruciating experience of eyebrow threading. It’s like Aphrodite shielded me and whispered yes, you can be beautiful without having to think that you’re already starting to pay for all your sins. Brow Haus is so good at this because they’re the first and only concept store to specialize in brow and lash grooming services, and they use the thread that’s supposed to be used for human skin, gentle and does the job well. What’s more, they’ve dedicated hours and hours of training for all their therapists/ technicians! It’s not a surprise why they’re also big in Singapore, Hong Kong, Manila, Bangkok, Jakarta, Shanghai, London and New York! Basic threading costs for P598.
So…back to my experience. The process started with a short consultation with their Manila-trained brow technicians (hehe I just made up that term) and they made me lie down a super comfy inclined chair. Then they threaded my brows in a few minutes, applied “ice cream”, told me the aftercare (no strenuous activity, no contact with liquids for the brow area for at least five hours). Then I looked at the mirror and remembered what my good friend and talented makeup artist Melody told me: if your eyebrows are well-groomed, your work is half-done. I just wore my daily layer of powder, NYX eyeliner and MAC’s lipstick in Cosmo. Then I was done.
Now I’m eating pasta, forgetting its high carb content, and trying to digest how I’ll finalize ten scripts in 2 hours.
PS Thank you Ms. Monique and BROW HAUS – Abreeza! 🙂 Check out their lash grooming services too!
