My Quest for Cara D's Power Brow
One editor tries every method under the sun to bring her brows from wimpy to fierce
The Fix: In order to avoid getting my brows butchered the next time I went to the salon (I'm perfectly capable of doing that on my own), I spoke with Joey Healy of the Joey Healy Eyebrow Studio in New York. Healy suggests bringing pictures to the person doing your brows, just as you would when getting a haircut. "Remember, Cara D's brows evolve through the seasons, so be sure to bring a picture of the specific look you want to achieve," says Healy. Of course, this brow shape won't look the exact same on everyone. It's your specialist's job to tailor your waxing or tweezing to fit your facial structure and brow shape.
After you've visited the salon (assuming you're happy with the results), take a picture that you can bring in the next time. In the meantime, it's all about maintenance. "Don't go searching for something to pluck. Try to keep the design lines clean by lightly removing new growth once a week using a slanted tweezer." Healy also warns not to use a magnifying mirror. I repeat: Do not use a magnifying mirror. Learning that lesson the hard way leads to a "before" picture like mine.
