When it comes to that unruly strip of hair above my eyes, wild is the word that comes to mind. I am a woman determined, doing battle (and most often losing) with the unruly caterpillars that I call eyebrows. They are naturally bushy, naturally coarse, and naturally a pain in the tuchus.
Enter the newest brow and lash bar on my radar, Blink Brow Bar, located inside the Saks Fifth Avenue store in NYC.
Blink Brow Bar is a British export, and practically an institution over the pond. Offering up everything from brow shaping via threading, to brow tints, and even lash extensions, Blink is truly a one-stop beauty shop when it comes to all things facial hair.
Trust me when I say that Sam, my technician had a real mess on her hands when I arrived at the fifth floor salon pop-up at Saks. Sporting three weeks of eyebrow growth, I was looking less woman and more wookie. We had a brief chat regarding my brow shape, the shortened state of my lashes, 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 and wimpy lashes could indeed be saved.
We started with brow shaping, and Sam wielded that thread like a pro, quickly and efficiently sculpting and shaping my brows. In about 10 minutes, I had a new set of brows that I was most definitely loving. We then moved on to a half set of lash extensions, a process that took about 40 minutes, and left me with a flirtatious flutter that was beautifully subtle and most definitely noticeable.
The obligatory before/after shot.
For brows and lashes that are nothing short of amazing, be sure to visit the Blink Brow Bar in New York City. Blink will change the way you think about your brows and lashes, I promise.
