I got really lucky to be visited by a top Beauty Editor of Modern Salon to do her eyebrows, and our service quickly turned into an interview, and low and behold, I saw myself featured on the Modern Salon Blog!
At the bottom of the page you’ll see my Top 6 Client tricks:
-The consultation is key and should be done on each visit
Absolutely! Your client views their eyebrow shaping much like getting a brand new haircut! It’s scary and exciting all at the same time. And believe me, they’re used to going somewhere and getting everything waxed and/or tweezed off with hardly a word spoken to the client. Not right in my opinion. So give each client a full consultation every time. Ask what they like and don’t like and go from there. Make sure their fears are dissolved and that you are giving them exactly what they want. Results? A guaranteed client that will always come back because you listened.
-Give at least 30 minutes to each client
30 minutes may seem like a long time but it really isn’t. Not when you do a consultation and talk to them beforehand. It’s consideration to the client and expert one on one time. Want to charge more? Give more time to the service as the expert that you are.
-Shaping the top of the brow is as important as cleaning up beneath (It’s easier to change the arch than you think!”)
Clients hear a lot of why they shouldn’t tweeze or wax above the brow, and they’re right, if THEY’RE doing it. For the professional, it can make the difference between a shaped eyebrow and a completely clean and sharp eyebrow.
-Highlight the entire length of brow when applying make up
Don’t just highlight right under the arch of the brow. Highlight along the entire bottom of the brow to really bring out the shape and line. Makes a shaped brow look even sharper.
-Brow strands grow in 2 cycles, meaning the plucked strand could grow in anywhere from 2 – 6 weeks
Ever wonder why that one plucked hair doesn’t grow back right away? Yep, you gotta wait for it, which could mean weeks. So be really careful as you tweeze near the line of the brow.
-The eyebrow pencil should be a shade lighter than the natural eyebrow
Need to fill in holes in the brow, but the client really doesn’t need their brows looking darker? Take the Blonde (for light to medium brows) or Taupe Brow Pencil (for darker skin with dark brows) and fill in, and THEN apply the matching brow shadow on top to balance out the color of the brow. An instant shaped brow that’s even in both color and line.
