Thick, lucious brows are all the rage in today’s fashion. The bushier the better! Many women and men are opting to show off their brows with highly defined edges and lamination techniques in order to make them more pronounced. Unfortunately, not all of us are endowed with naturally bushy brows. Genetics, age and hormone levels within our bodies can affect the growth and thickness of our facial hair. There are however a variety of techniques and services available to us to change the look and feel of our eyebrows.

 

Eyebrow Tinting Services

Eyebrow tinting is the process of applying a semi-permanent dye to your brows. A quick and easy procedure, brow tinting usually only takes around 20 minutes. The colour is matched to your current or desired shade and then the dye is applied to the area. While your brows may appear too dark at first, this is just the residual dye remaining on your skin. After a wash or two it will disappear off your skin and leave your brows looking perfect. This type of dye is designed to last for around a month under regular circumstances. The Beauty & Brow Parlour provides brow tinting, eyelash tinting and henna tinting services.

Henna is a natural type of dye made from the henna plant. It’s been used for centuries to dye skin, hair and fabrics. Just like conventional brow tinting, it’s a semi-permanent dye. Henna brows can last for between 2 to 4 weeks, with many people reporting the effects lasting longer than standard brow dyes. An all natural solution, henna dye contains no harsh chemical compounds and may be suitable for people with sensitive skin or those who just have issues using conventional dyes.

 

Home Remedies For Thicker Brows

If you’re looking for something simply to try at home, there are a few different oils that may benefit your brows. Castor oil, coconut oil and olive oil all contain a wide spectrum of vitamins and nutrients that are great for your hair and skin. A few drops of any of these oils massaged into your brows on a regular basis may see fuller and more lucious growth. While we can’t vouch for any guaranteed results here, the vitamins within these oils will definitely help with the health of your skin underneath!

 

Makeup To Cover My Brows

If you’re looking for a less permanent way to thicken your brows than dye, there’s always the option of using a high quality makeup. Brow and lash kits are available at many outlets that allow you to nourish your hair while also giving it a more dense appearance. The Beauty & Brow Parlour’s own Ruposhi Brow Powder is a great way to fill in any sparse areas if you’ve got a naturally thinner brow. Ideal for grey brows or anyone with thinner hair, this eyebrow enhancing powder comes in a range of colour to suit any hair. Visit our online store to purchase the Ruposhi Brow Powder and view our entire range.

Pregnancy brings a lot of changes to your body. There are obvious ones, your skin will stretch and grow to make room for the bundle of joy inside, and then there are the changes that take place on a more microscopic level inside of your body. Increases in the levels of certain hormones produced by your body can alter the pigment in your skin, causing areas like birthmarks and freckles to become darker or appear a different shade. Most women experience some darkening around their nipples and may develop a vertical line down the centre of their stomach known as the “linea nigra”. While many of these changes might seem confronting, they are only temporary and usually remedy themselves over the course of your pregnancy.

 

Skin And Hair Changes During Pregnancy

It’s common for hair growth to increase during pregnancy. Many women feel that they lose a large amount of hair after giving birth, but it’s often just the body’s way of shedding all the excess hair that was produced during the gestation period. Body hair during pregnancy can appear much thicker and more oily, requiring more regular visits to your local parlour to make sure it’s under control. From professional brow waxes to body hair removal, The Beauty & Brow Parlour have the skilled services to look after all your unwanted hair, no matter how pregnant you are.

Skin and Hair Care During Pregnancy

It’s also relatively common for facial pigmentation patches to occur during pregnancy. Sometimes referred to as “Chloasma”, dark circles or patches can occur on the forehead, nose, cheeks, lips and chin. This is a completely normal phenomenon that’s more frequently experienced by women living in areas with high sun exposure. Most of the time the patches disappear after a few weeks or months, with rare cases retaining the pigmentation for up to a year.

 

What To Use On My Skin When Pregnant

It can be difficult to know exactly what the best products to use during your pregnancy are. When you’re up at odd hours and not quite feeling yourself your regular skin routine often goes out the window. While oils, balms and butters rich in vitamins and nutrients are often suggested for stretch marks, you may be wondering what’s suitable for your face? The Beauty & Brow Parlour’s own Ruposhi Brightening Eye Cream is an affordable and effective option. Our brightening cream acts to rehydrate the skin around your eyes. With ingredients like Vitamin E, shea butter and glycerin, the specially formulated cream repairs the outer barrier of your skin and revitalises dark circles and areas of pigmentation.

 

Relaxing During Your Pregnancy

One of the most critical aspects of pregnancy is keeping your stress levels as low as possible. Elevated stress can have a detrimental effect on the health of both you and your unborn child. It’s important to make an effort to undertake calming activities that you know have a positive impact on your mind. Enjoying a relaxing facial or skin treatment can offer you a way to lower your stress and improve the quality of your skin. The Beauty & Brow Parlour provides a number of specialised skin treatments, from affordable mini facials to skin pigmentation and pH balancing treatments.

The Beauty & Brow Parlour offers you the very best when it comes to brow threading in Melbourne. Our highly skilled beauty technicians make it their mission to provide you with a level of service you’ll really appreciate. Whether you’re a regular or a first time customer, you’ll get to enjoy the superior threading techniques that only come with a lot of experience in the beauty field.

When Did Eyebrow Threading Start?

Threading, or epilation, is a hair removal technique that’s been around for a very long time. Experts believe it’s been used for over 6000 years, first appearing around India and the Middle East. Not just a cosmetic technique, in older times many cultures believed it to be an important moment in a young woman’s life. Having her eyebrows threaded before marriage would mark her ascension into womanhood and journey into a new stage of life. In more recent times the technique has been adopted by the western world and perfected by trained professionals like our team at The Beauty and Brow Parlour!

How Does Brow Threading Work?

Eyebrow threading is a method of shaping your eyebrows by precisely removing the unwanted hair. This is achieved by plucking out whole lines of hair at once with a cotton or polyester string. The string is doubled over and then twisted to roll over the hairs and remove them at the follicle level. This unique twisting movement system allows for a very precise finish that’s much harder to achieve with other methods. Unlike individual tweezing or plucking, threading removes multiple hairs at once, helping to more easily shape the brow area and give you the look you want. A relatively painless and quick process, brow threading allows for easier maintenance and involves no harsh chemicals or waxes.

Is Threading Expensive?

Not at The Beauty & Brow Parlour it isn’t! We understand that looking after yourself shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. It’s not enough that we strive to offer the best threading in Melbourne, we also want to provide you with the most affordable threading in Melbourne! Our current price list is as follows:

What Is A Facial?

A facial treatment is a way to professionally cleanse your skin. It’s almost unbelievable the amount of dirt, grime, dead skin cells, oils and other materials that build up on your face. At-home cleaning methods and regular skincare routines are a great practice but they’re often simply not enough. There’s a level of cleanliness and care that can only be achieved by a skilled professional technician with advanced equipment, superior products and a lot of experience in the field.

What Are The Stages Involved?

While the different facial treatments we provide at The Beauty & Brow Parlour will vary, and individual techniques may differ from store to store, there are a few key elements that are at the heart of any facial.

This preparation stage involves thoroughly cleaning your face. Firstly, any make-up or surface dirt is removed with a gentle soap and warm water mixture. As well as providing an initial clean, this step primes your skin for the treatment that will follow. The initial cleansing allows your technician to assess your skin’s quality, making note of any problem areas or specific issues to target during your treatment.

This is a critical step. An abrasive material is used to scrub away all the deeper dirt and dead skin cells on your face. Removing impurities and opening up pores, exfoliation acts to boost blood circulation and can help with the prevention of acne and pimples.

Either by hand or with a specialised tool, your beauty expert will remove any clogged pores or surface blackheads. Anything any deeper than surface level will usually be referred to a dermatologist, attempting to work on these issues can become unsafe for you.

Benefits Of A Facials

Facial treatments provide a whole range of benefits for your skin. They encourage the growth of healthy cells and aid in new cell turnover. Regular treatments can also improve your skin’s tone, texture and elasticity by combating the effects of environmental pollution and sun exposure. You’ll feel like a better version of yourself knowing that your skin is as clean as it can be!

What Facials Do We Offer?

Providing you with some of the best facials in Melbourne, we offer four different types of treatments:

Your face is the image of yourself you first present to the outside world. Healthy, glowing skin shows everybody you encounter that you look after yourself and are ready to take on any challenge. Even just for yourself, knowing you have a fully cleansed face, with clean pores and exfoliated skin can empower you. Giving you the confidence to tackle your day and anything that comes your way.

The Beauty & Brow Parlour offers you four different levels of facial treatment:

Do I Need A Facial?

Facial treatments are not just for those of us with visible concerns. While there are many benefits for chronic acne and pimple sufferers, a deep cleanse can be just as useful for someone with seemingly blemish-free skin. It can often be hard to see just how much dirt and grime build up on our skin, increasing the chance of blocked pores, blackheads and other dermatological conditions. The exfoliation and deep cleansing of a facial treatment allows all of this matter to be removed by a professional technician, leaving your skin primed for hydration and rejuvenation.

Tailoring Your Facial To You

Your facial treatment should work for your needs. If you have a particular concern about an area or problem you want to address, it’s important you communicate that to your beauty technician. Getting the most out of a facial often requires a tailored approach and, at The Beauty & Brow Parlour, we’re always happy to accommodate our customers’ needs. Your technician will assess your skin and needs and walk you through the best options for you

Facial Cleansing On A Regular Basis

Facial treatments should occur every four to six weeks. This amount of time gives your skin the opportunity to reap the full benefits of your treatment without accumulating an excessive amount of build up. Maintaining a regular routine is no different to any other type of self-care and will achieve the best results for you. If you’re unable to make appointments regularly, changing seasons can be a good opportunity to come in for a facial cleanse. The changes in weather and humidity can dehydrate your skin and cause a more wrinkled and unhealthy appearance.

Mental Benefits of Facial Care

A facial treatment is a relaxing experience. A painless procedure, some people do report a small amount of discomfort – not dissimilar to a massage. Through all the cleansing stages, you’ll be able to de-stress and unwind, knowing that your skin is receiving a deep cleanse. Much like a massage, all you’re required to do is lay back and relax. At the hands of one of our skilled technicians, you’ll finish your facial feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to face the world – knowing your skin looks as good as it feels.

Waxing is a very effective method of hair removal. Quicker and more efficient than shaving, waxing has been an essential beauty technique used for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans all underwent some sort of waxing hair removal service in order to achieve their desired aesthetic. Some historians even report cavemen went to great lengths to remove their body hair – albeit for survival purposes not beauty!

It wasn’t until the 1960s that we saw the hair removal technique start to resemble what we know today. Take-home wax strips and salon waxing became a popular beauty technique to achieve silky smooth legs and arms.

Today, we wax for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s comfort, appearance or any other reason, waxing offers an easy alternative to shaving and often helps with common issues like razor burn and ingrown hairs. Here at The Beauty & Brow Parlour we know that waxing is an essential beauty service and offer a range of waxing options.

Waxing Hair Removal Services At The Beauty & Brow Parlour

Our services include:

How To Prepare For Waxing

Waxing can be a sensitive issue in more than one sense of the word. Eyebrow waxing, our arms, legs and most other areas are relatively easy to endure, but when it comes to areas like our bikini line it’s perfectly normal to feel hesitation. The Beauty & Brow technicians are all qualified professionals that are there to make your experience as easy and pleasant as possible. Trusting in the skilled services of our technicians can help put your mind at ease.

In terms of skin preparation, it depends on the area. Generally, your hair should be at least a quarter of an inch long before your appointment. Waxing directly after a razor shave will not work. The wax requires enough hair on your skin to firmly grip onto in order to properly remove the entire hair – root and all – from the follicle.

Some customers who are particularly sensitive to waxing choose to employ the use of an over-the-counter pain reliever before visiting our salon. A mild angelisic will usually help you through the process if you find it a little too difficult.

It’s also important to make sure the area has no creams or lotions applied to it before your wax. This can make your skin too slippery and not allow the wax to adhere properly.

Caring For Your Skin After A Waxing

Looking after your skin post-wax is an important step. To reduce the chance of any issues, The Beauty and Brow Parlour suggests avoiding very hot showers and baths during the 24 hour period after your treatment. Additionally, wearing tight clothes, intense exercise and touching the area should be avoided directly after waxing. Cold compresses can be used to soothe the area and over-the-counter antiseptic creams can be applied to particularly inflamed areas.

The Beauty & Brow Parlour are the experts in all wax hair removal services. Whether it’s eyebrow waxing or brazilians, we’ve got you covered. Locate your nearest parlour today to book in for a wax!

A lash lift is essentially a perm for your eyebrows. An alternative to treatments like permanent eyelash extensions, a lash lift gives you a natural, lasting look. The lift works by applying a curling serum to your eyebrows while a mini-curling rod shapes your eyelashes, giving them the look you desire.

Our eyelashes all have a natural look. Unique to us, they’re not always the shape or length we desire. A curled, lifted eyelash gives you a more inviting and finished look. A low maintenance solution, lash lifts save you the time taken to normally apply mascara every day, giving you a long lasting, cost-effective beauty solution.

How Does a Lash Lift Work?

The special serum that’s applied to your eyelashes acts to break down the protein fibres in your hair. This makes the lashes malleable and allows the technician to shape them to your desired style.

Once formed around the appropriately sized rod, they are set with a finishing serum. This mixture restores and conditions the lash, allowing it to set into its new form. A final coat of serum is then applied to protect the lashes and help the shape last for as long as possible.

How Long Does a Lash Lift Take?

The process begins with cleansing the area after an initial, brief consultation. After that the curling procedure will begin. The whole process is usually completed in about 45 minutes under normal circumstances. This is an incredibly short amount of time in comparison to the accumulated hours you’ll save each morning applying mascara. Giving you a more natural look that’s easy to maintain.

How Long Does a Lash Lift Last?

This will largely depend on what makeup products you use and how quickly your lashes grow. Typically, a lash lift will last for around 6 weeks. In order to get the most out of your lift, you should make sure that no makeup or water comes into contact with your lashes for the first 24 hour period. This will allow them to better set and increase the lifespan of the lift.

Can I Still Use Makeup On My Eyelashes?

Profile view of a human eye with a long curl false eyelashes

Yes. After the first 24-48 hours period you can use mascara on your lashes. It is recommended, however, that you should not use waterproof mascara on your lashes following this procedure. This type of mascara can act to dehydrate your lashes and lose your curl. Your technician will be able to walk you through the proper post-procedure care for your lashes and suitable products to use.

Will A Lash Lift Damage My Eyebrows?

No, a lash lift is a relatively safe procedure. As long as it’s performed by a qualified professional you have nothing to worry about.

Lash Lifts At The Beauty & Brow Parlour

The Beauty & Brow Parlour offer lash lifting in all Tasmanian stores and select stores across NSW and Victoria. Visit us online to find your closest store and find out what services are available. The Beauty & Brow Parlour is here for all of your beauty needs.

 

With the thin eyebrow trend of the 2000’s looking like a speck in our collective rear-view mirror, the focus is now on definition and volume. These days it’s all about the bushy brow. A thick and luscious line on your face that accentuates your facial features. But, just as choosing the right hairstyle is important for your face, choosing the right eyebrow shape can drastically change the way you look.

What Is My Face Shape?

The first step in picking the right eyebrows for your face shape is determining the shape itself. Most people will know their general shape, with it being fairly obvious from a quick inspection in the mirror. However, some of us have more complex facial structures that are harder to clearly classify. The shape of your face can generally be classed into one of the following formations. Each shape has their own characteristics, making it easy for you to identify which one most resembles yours.

You have widely spaced cheeks and your face appears to be the same length horizontally as vertically.

Your face’s length is longer than its width. Sometimes with a more pronounced forehead.

Your face tapers down to a sharper chin, with your overall length longer than its width.

You have a prominent jawline, giving your face a square, angular look.

You have a smaller forehead and your face appears widest at the eyes or temples.

What Eyebrows Work With What Shape?

It will always depend on personal preference when it comes to your brows. You know what works best and you’re the one that has to look at it every day! However, The Beauty & Brow Parlour offers you some styling advice that works as a general rule of thumb. The following are recommended eyebrow shapes:

A full brow with a sharp, medium arch.

A straighter, thinner brow.

A fuller brow with a softer, medium arch.

A high arch with a moderately thick brow.

A curved brow with a medium thickness.

Brow Shaping Methods

When it comes to shaping your brows there are really only two choices. Brow threading or eyebrow waxing. Most of us already have a preference, becoming accustomed to one over the other. Each method of beauty treatment has its benefits and drawbacks. Eyebrow threading allows for a more precise and detailed finish. The unique twisting motion results in lines of hair removed instantly, giving you more control over the shape. Eyebrow threading is less painful than waxing and generally suited to people who may experience sensitive skin and other dermatological issues.

Eyebrow waxing is the other option. Comfort levels vary for the individual, with some people claiming waxing even hurts less than brow threading. Waxing can offer longer lasting shaping, as the hair that grows back will usually be finer and softer. Allowing you to maintain your overall shape for longer periods of time.

Your Dream Eyebrows At The Beauty & Brow Parlour

Whatever shape you want your brows to be, we can help! The Beauty & Brow Parlour offers you eyebrow threading, waxing, tinting and many other beauty services at affordable prices. We deliver the highest quality of customer service. You leave with perfect brows and a smile at our beauty parlours.

Ageing is inevitable. As much as we’d all like to remain forever young, both on the outside and inside, our skin ageing is simply a natural part of life we have to deal with. There are surgical options for facial rejuvenation at our disposal. Many people choose to undergo these permanent procedures in order to maintain a taut brow or sagless chin. However, most of us just want a non-invasive skin treatment to make our skin look and feel younger and healthier.

Why Does Our Skin Age?

Skin ageing is caused by a combination of different internal and external factors. Our skin consists of two layers. The outer layer, called the epidermis, is our protective layer. The largest organ in our body, our epidermis protects us from harsh environmental elements like UV sunlight and different chemical and bacterials compounds we come into contact with.

The layer underneath this is called the dermis. This sub-layer contains the proteins and collagen that give our skin its elastic, youthful properties. The cellular formation of the dermis layer is the key to its strength. As we get older, this structure gradually loses its integrity. The once tightly interconnected proteins start to move away from each other and cause the saggy and loose skin we’re all familiar with.

Body Fat And Our Skin

Asian woman weight loss and diet concept

You may have noticed that areas in which you’ve lost a considerable amount of fat can sometimes be left saggy too. This is because our body fat plays a large role in how our skin looks. As fat is deposited onto our body, the skin around it stretches to accommodate for the extra mass. When the fat layer underneath our skin then begins to recede, there is no longer anything to plump out or fill that area, causing a visible sag in the excess skin.

Common Causes of Skin Damage

Skin sagging is only part of what gives our skin an aged appearance. There are many other significant causes for skin ageing, such as:

It’s recommended that we drink at least 8 glasses of water (or around 2 litres) a day. Staying hydrated will allow the cells within your skin to absorb the water molecules, filling them up and plumping up your skin’s appearance.

Just like water, the food you eat affects your skin’s health. Eating a diet that’s high in salts can dehydrate your skin and have severe impacts on your overall health. Making sure you’re getting the required vitamins and minerals from your daily fruit and vegetable doses will always aid in your skin’s recovery process and general health.

While Vitamin D is good for our skin, and the Sun is a great way to get it – too much exposure will have negative effects. In Australia, our position means we’re particularly susceptible to the Sun’s ultraviolet radiation. Too much time in direct sunlight can fry our skin, damaging it permanently and increasing your risk of skin cancers.

Anti Ageing Skin Treatments

While there are some things that are out of our control, there are easy steps we can follow in order to mitigate these risks to our skin’s health. Moisturising, staying out of the sun and maintaining a healthy diet are essential for your skin’s health. It’s important, also, that we give our skin the attention it deserves. The Beauty and Brow Parlour offers you a range of facial treatments and skin treatments. An Affordable beauty salon, we offer services from pigmentation removal to our anti-ageing treatments – we’ll give your skin the helping hand it needs to look and feel as healthy as it can.
