It is not often that I will employ the word soldier when describing myself, but every so often a topic comes up that demands the adjective. I am a soldier in combat, doing battle (and most often losing) with the unruly caterpillars below my forehead that I call eyebrows. They are naturally bushy, naturally coarse, and naturally a pain in the tuchus.
Enter my knight in shining armor, and the only person that can help me fight the good fight. Say hello to Ramy of Ramy Beauty Therapy, and the Ramy Spa in NYC.
Ramy is a makeup artist, entrepreneur, and all-around brow boss. With a client list that reads like the seating chart at the Grammys, his reputation for being the best isn’t a boast, but truth. I consider myself very fortunate in having the opportunity to have him work some brow magic on me.
Trust me when I say that Ramy had a real mess on his hands when I arrived at his second floor salon in downtown Manhattan. Sporting three weeks of eyebrow growth, I was looking less woman and more wookie. We had a brief chat regarding my brow shape, what I was looking for, and how we would get there. I then lay back in the cushy chair with the bright lights shining, and a renewed hope that my brows could indeed be saved.
“Cars should be waxed, not brows” said Ramy as he wielded his weapon of choice- tweezers like a true warrior, and plucked away at my unruly brows. As he deftly shaped and sculpted, he shared with me several nuggets designed to help me fight the good fight. For example, Ramy recommended I keep a pair of tweezers by my toothbrush, plucking any stray hairs I may see in between appointments. The idea is that the brows will fill out a bit, but the shape will more or less be maintained. Great idea, right?
Fifteen minutes later, Ramy had worked his magic and it was time for the big reveal. Not only did he slay the caterpillars, but my brows were in the best shape I think they have been, ever. The line of my brows was clean, my arch was sky high, and the thickness was absolutely perfect. With very little guidance from my end, Ramy gave me results that I could only dream of previously. Naturally, I am over the moon.
The obligatory before/after shot.
For brows that are nothing short of amazing, be sure to visit the Ramy Spa in New York City. Ramy will change the way you think about your brows, I promise.
