Eyebrows are one of the most talked about features amongst many groups of girls at the moment, from “Scouse Brows” to barely there brows, how do we get the right brow to suit our face?!
Lets be honest, most women these days have tinted, waxed, threaded and plucked their brows in the pursuit of the perfect arch but when we visited Shavata in Harvey Nichols recently, I wondered why I hadn’t visited them sooner!
“Brows have the ability to communicate without words, beautify without make up and beat the clock without a scalpel” Founder Shavata Singh.
Our brow artist Nas, has worked for Shavata for more than four years so has plenty of experience on achieving the best brows and made us feel perfectly at ease. First she prepared our brows and surrounding skin ready for the tint, I went for medium brown to create a more natural look.
As someone who usually opts for waxing, Shavata uses threading, a technique which has been used for centuries in the middle east but has become popular here in the last five years.
The whole process only takes about 20mins but the results are amazing! As you can see from my before and after pictures, the tinting has managed to create a longer brow which I had destroyed with over plucking!
Shavata also have their own range of brow maintenance products. These include the arch enhancer which really defines the brows natural shape, brow perfecter which comes in 3 colours to create depth and enhance colour, especially in dark hairs. But my favourite product was the brow tamer! Its like hair spray for you brows! Sweep the applicator over your brows in the natural direction of the hairs to ensure that your brows stay in place all day! It’s also one of brow guru Shavata Singh’s top tools to take on holiday!
Arch Enhancer, £10.50
Brow Perfecter, £19.50
Brow Tamer, £15.50
Shavata also offers a wide range of services from lash tinting to Semi-Permanent Lash Extensions, as well as semi-permanent brows and Harvey Nichols Manchester is one of the only Shavata Brows in the UK to offer this service! Nas told us that it is the best treatment for people who brows are full of gaps as it adds definition. Its also great for adding lift and shape to otherwise lifeless brows.
Over the years, Shavata has perfected the natural looking semi-permanent brow by utilising as much of the natural hair as possible; the hairs will camouflage the make-up, allowing the experts to perform minimal tattooing. This is the treatment of choice for those with hereditary scarce brows, over pluckers, people who don’t like their brow shape or those recovering from medical treatment that has caused hair loss, and want to create a new brow. Treatment is on offer at the moment for £250 and is a great investment in your beauty regime. Semi-permanent brows are smudge proof, perfect for swimming, long summer holidays and it feels great to wake up each morning with perfect and beautiful natural looking brows!
