I was gifted by my dear sainted father with many things: good budgeting skills, a quick wit…and lots of hair. The last one has always been frustrating; though my eyelashes are thick and dark, well, so are my eyebrows. They need constant maintenance in order to look presentable. Though I’ve been waxing them for years, when Browbar opened up in the North Highland Steel building in Inman Park, I decided to go check out their threading services. Threading is a traditional Persian, Arab, and Indian method of hair removal that is becoming more popular in the U.S., especially for those of us with sensitive skin. Threaders use a special method of rolling a twisted cotton thread over areas of unwanted hair, which pulls a linear grouping of hairs out at once, making it more precise than waxing and quicker than tweezing.
At Browbar, practitioners offer threading services for the entire face, depending on where you might have undesired hair. I booked a combination brow clean-up and upper lip threading with Jasmin, who was friendly and very quick! She didn’t over-thread my brows, but brought out a natural arch quickly and relatively painlessly. The upper lip threading was even speedier and got rid of that little bit of unladylike hair (thanks, Dad) that had always bothered me. I was also happy to receive a punch card that will get me my fifth brow threading free!
Additionally, Browbar offers a full face and body waxing menu for men and women. I noticed that they were offering a weekly special on Brazilian waxing for only $35, and the staff told me that they regularly run promotions like that that get sent to their email list. Their services also include eyelash extensions, eyelash and eyebrow tinting, makeup application, and signature organic facials. The full menu of esthetic services is available here.
The boutique setting is pretty and comfortable, and they carry product lines like Karuna Skincare that are otherwise hard to find in Atlanta, as well as pretty jewelry and scarves in the front. Parking is convenient and free in the retail parking lot belonging to the N. Highland Steel building, which is especially nice when you’re just in and out for a service in fifteen minutes.
Anyway, my brows are looking great, and I’m actually looking forward to the next time I stop in to Browbar to get my caterpillars tamed. Thanks, Jasmin!
