Defined brows - The secret of defined eyebrows

Defined brows in Norwich

The HD brows look is done in 7 stages- consultation, tint, wax, trim, threading, tweezers and make-up. This can be made as subtle or dramatic as you like. HD Brows is a registered trademark name and done by trained HD brows specialists. If someone is offering true HD brows you can check on their website. There is currently two salon in Norwich city centre that offers HD Brows. Normally from around £25-£35 per appointment and the additional cost of buying the HD brows make-up palette to create the look yourself at home every day, which is around £30. Tinting the skin doesn't last very long as the sun soon fades it and so does your daily facial cleansing routine, so buying the make-up is a must! The thicker, fuller eyebrows are extremely fashionable at the moment.

There are many companies offering the HD brows look. Hi-brow is also a very popular brand and sells their own make-up. The prices vary a lot from company to company.

I am not HD brows trained. However, I can create a similar defined look with threading, tinting and make-up. I don't like to wax eyebrows as the eyes are a very sensitive area and wax naturally exfoliates the skin which can cause ageing. The photo below was done simply with eyebrow threading, eyebrow tint and showing the client how to apply the make-up to create the look at home. I prefer using powder on the eyebrows instead of a pencil as it gives a softer look.

If you have dark eyebrows naturally you probably won't benefit much from the tint and I would just advice booking in for only eyebrow threading. There are hundreds of tips on applying HD brows look make-up on u-tube.

A test patch for tint is a must at every Norwich beauty salon, without doing a test patch it puts the client at risk of a possible allergic reaction and invalidates the therapist's insurance. If someone offers to do HD brows in Norwich without doing a test patch I would avoid.

Natural look eyelash extensions - Norwich

I got asked to do a very natural look this week in Norwich for eyelash extensions. "Please don't make me look like Daisy the cow". I used a very natural curl J, 0.20 in thickness, dark brown in colour and only 7mm/9mm in length. I am really pleased with the results.

This client wanted a look so she could get up in the morning and walk the dogs without worrying about applying mascara, but without looking like Daisy the cow! I wear eyelash extensions and love the glamour feeling you get when you wake up in the morning. They are very easy to take care of and maintain.

These are semi-permanent eyelash extensions, so will need infills every 2-3 weeks to maintain them.

Mummy & daughter manicure in Norwich

Manicure in Norwich

Mummy Gellux gel polish manicure and daughter can get a mini sparkly manicure at my Norwich beauty salon. Extra for nail art.

This is a great package for Mum's to treat her their daughter to and great one-to-one time if you have lots of kids. I have lots of toys and colouring in pictures in the salon room to keep the little ones interested and lots of nail art for them to look through including glitter and flower nail art for their mini manicure. Also ideal if you want a treat for yourself and are unable to get childcare.

I use OPI polish for Children's manicures as it doesn't contain any scary chemicals, which are banned in most countries. I also advise not to use non-acetone based nail polish removers, which you can buy from my Norwich beauty salon. I also have lots of bright colourful nail files for retail too and Gellux gel polish remover, so you can remove your gel nails at home. Including instructions on how to remove them.

This package can be done just before Christmas parties and both the Mum and daughter can have matching glittery nails.

I don't do any cuticle work on the children it's just simply a quick paint as having a little girl myself I understand that they won't sit still for very long!

I can also offer Princess parties for your daughter and her friends for birthday parties. I can team up with other beauticians to offer you a bespoke package for the whole party. Including hair ups and glitter tattoos too! Contact me for more information on what I can offer for birthday parties or Christmas parties.

Gift vouchers available for Christmas, birthdays, a special treat, the reward for good behaviour, etc

Gellux gel nails pamper party - A luxury night in

Here are some lovely photos from a recent pamper party I did in Norwich. On the night we did 15 manicures with Gellux gel polish. I can cater for large or small groups. I come to you for pamper parties, so you can enjoy a luxury night in while being pampered with your friends.

Ideal for a hen do, bridal, baby shower, prom, girls night in and much more!

Email from client:

"Thanks so much to you both for coming over and painting all of our nails. It was incredibly short notice and there were so many of us! But it was such a brilliant and a rather special evening. I know it completely made Emily's (the bride's) day and it certainly made mine. We've not all sat and done our nails like that since we were teenagers, and here we all were again, all grown up and getting married!"

 

:-)
