The Best Eyebrows to Compliment Your Face Shape

Every person is different and when it comes to the best shape of eyebrow to fit your face, it could be hard to decide which shape is best for you. Like haircuts, eyebrow shapes aren’t one-size-fits-all. Your perfect brows depend on the dimensions of your face, and by going for the right arches, you can take years off, accentuate your best features and wear less make-up elsewhere.


When it comes to round face shapes it is important not to elongate the face.  Try shaping your brows into a high arch shape, which follows a straight line to the peak of the brow, and creates more vertical lines. Stay away from a rounded brow shape.


If your face is squarer shaped, experts recommend you go thick with a nice, strong arch. Strong and thick eyebrows can help soften the heavy jawline. A defined sharp peak at the top of the brow will make your eyebrows appear stronger, which helps to create a balance of your face.


A straight, medium thick brow with a very subtle arch suits a long face by drawing the attention outward instead of up and down. Experts say to focus on extending the length of your brows from left to right.


For oval shaped faces angular arches, or severe lines that stretch outward to the temples would look best on you. Oval shape is the ideal shape for eyebrows since you can’t really go wrong with your shape.

Waxing vs Sugaring

When it comes to hair removal methods these days there are so many different options that we have available to us. Waxing has been around for a while and most of us turn to this method in order to achieve smooth and hair-free skin. Now there’s a different method that is a lot more natural than waxing and less painful. Sugaring is a paste that seeps into the hair follicle. This helps lubricate the hair root regardless of whether it’s on the legs or anywhere else on your skin. The actual sugaring paste looks like honey, except the consistency is a lot thicker. With sugaring, the hair gets removed the same direction it grows which means less breakage and less ingrown hairs for you. Another huge plus of sugaring is that it’s environmentally friendly, because it is all natural and doesn’t require any strips or sticks. Sugaring to some can be painful since the application of the wax is applied in the opposite direction of the hair growth. Because wax sticks to any surface it is applied to, pulling it away causes unwarranted pain. High Brow Beauty offers both sugaring and waxing, we stay away from threading and trust our classic waxing methods mostly for beautiful brows. But when it comes to a Brazilian, sugaring or waxing: it’s completely up to you. Try them both so you know exactly which technique fits your body best.


  • Because sugaring paste does not adhere to live skin cells the way most waxes do, it pulls up only hair not skin minimizing topical pain.
  • Sugaring paste is generally made from a few basic ingredients, including sugar, water, and lemon juice.
  • Sugaring paste is water-soluble, so any residue left behind can be easily washed off after the procedure.
  • Sugar is removed in the same direction of hair growth so less likely to get ingrown hairs. 


  • Waxing differs from sugaring in that waxing need to be applied at a higher temperature then sugar. 
  • Wax is applied in the same direction of hair growth and removed against.
  • Tends to be a slightly faster in the application then with sugaring, so if you like quick waxing maybe a better option for you.

Sleek Brows vs. Brow Tinting

When it comes to the fullness of brows, not everyone is blessed with full brows that have no bald spots or spots where hair doesn’t grow. Now there is a few things we can do in order to keep our brows looking fabulous all the time. If you struggle with having hair grow in certain spots then sleek brow might be for you. Sleek brows is also known as 3d brow building.  Sleek brow is a skin-safe adhesive that mimics the look of real hair. It is applied to skin that has been custom-colored for each person based on his or her wants and needs. Another alternative method is eyebrow tinting, which tints the actual hair of the eyebrows not the skin. Here are some things you should keep in mind if you’re considering getting either of these services done:

Sleek Brow:

  • Usually lasts 2-3 weeks.
  • Typically a Sleek Brows appointment will cost between $90 - $150.
  • Procedure takes about an hour
  • Skin safe adhesive is applied

Brow Tinting:

  • Semi-permanent hair-dye
  • Usually lasts 3-4 weeks
  • Procedure takes 25 minutes

Cost is a less expensive option.

Waxing vs. Threading

When it comes to hair removal there are so many options out there these days that it’s hard to choose the right method for yourself. The two methods that are going to be talked about in this blog are waxing and threading. Before we get into the process of both these methods, lets break down what waxing and threading really is. Waxing is a quick and efficient method of removing unwanted hair, especially on the face. While threading gets rid of the finest and smallest hair with ease and doesn't leave the area extremely swollen or red. The downside about threading, is that it doesn’t remove the hair from the root completely. During the threading process the thread might cut the hair at the skin, which allows hair to grow back faster since not all the hairs are removed from the root.

Even though both methods are pretty similar, the process of how each are preformed is completely different. When it comes to waxing there are many types of wax that can be used, but the process remains the same as it allows you to remove multiple hairs quickly from the root. Threading gets rids of the finest and smallest hair slower than waxing which can make it more painful. Since threading doesn’t remove all the hairs completely from the root, it can cut the hair at the skin which will make the hair grow out faster.

In the waxing process, you will feel the warmth of the wax and a coolness after the hair is removed. It is a quick and precise way to get rid of hair and tends to be less painful than threading. Threading can hurt more than waxing because the hairs are pulled out much slower. This is one of the main reasons that waxing is still considered to be a much more popular way of unwanted hair removal. Waxing can be used on other parts of your body instead of just your eyebrows. When it comes to the maintenance of these two methods, waxing lasts a little longer than threading. Generally waxing lasts 4-6 weeks, while threading on the other hand lasts only 2-3 weeks. Even though threading has become a more popular option, it is also the more painful and expensive alternative to waxing. While waxing can be used all over the body as well as being quicker and less painful.

Everything You Need To Know About Eyelash Extensions

When it comes to lashes, many women don’t have the time or patience to apply fake lashes every day. Now there’s a simpler way to get the long beautiful lashes without all the hard work that it actually takes to apply them. Eyelash extensions allow you to add volume and length to your existing lash line using false lashes, typically applied one at a time. They're glued on, so they last longer than typical falsies and when done properly, they feel just like your normal lashes. There are three different types of eyelash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink. Highbrow beauty offers mink and silk which are both synthetic. They not only come in different materials, they are also available in different lengths, which range from 6mm to 17mm. The process of getting eyelash extensions applied takes about a 2 hour period, depending on how many lashes you get done. The lashes are applied one at a time using a semi-permanent glue that will not irritate the eye or damage the natural lash. Now when it comes to how long or full you want your lashes to look, it depends on your natural lashes length and thickness. Since the eyelash extension is mended onto your own eyelash, it is best to start with fewer lashes first since you don’t want your eyelash to look too heavy. It is extremely important to get your eyelashes done by a professional, since the wrong technique can cause side effects such as irritation, having your lashes falls out or even gaps and spacing in between applied lashes.

The upkeep after getting your lashes done can be the most challenging part for people. Now that you’ve got your long pretty lashes, you need to change your routine in order to keep them looking long at full. Normally you should be sure to not expose your eyes to heat or water for the first 24 hours that you get your eyelash extensions done. Highbrow beauty uses a special glue that only has a 3 hour drying time instead of 24 hours! In order to keep your lashes looking fabulous you need to maintain your lashes by getting them filled every three to four weeks.
