Anastasia’s Beverly Hills salon was one of the stops on the Total Beauty Tour and was amazing. The open layout of the salon is very nice and bright with a stunning array of celebrity clients on the walls. Clients are consulted and brows are groomed in the main room. I was suprised to see there are a lot of other services offered from body waxing to facials, you could have all your needs met in one place.
As a treat we got to watch Anastasia’s brow shaping work first hand. Annie from BellaSugar was chosen for an on the spot brow fix and in a few minutes changed her already beauty-full expression.
I could not leave without a consult so I basically begged for help and it was granted! If you had asked me before the consult, I would have said I had bushy brows but after talking to the brow authority I know I have too big a space between them and they are too thin. How do you like that? I’m thinking that my subconcious fear of uni-brow has blinded me to the waxers taking off to much in the middle – but no more, I’m going to pay much better attention now.

This is a time I wish I had a flair for the artistic so I could draw a diagram, or that I could explain succinctly what Anastasia explained to us so eloquently. There are two types of eyebrow hair. Top eyebrow hair grows straight and down, bottom eyebrow hair grows up. The key to getting a good arch and look is getting some of both of those hairs in your eyebrow so that your brows will stay nice and contained. It really doesn’t matter the method you use to get the hair off according to Anastasia, tweeze, wax or thread. And enough of the old advice about not taking off the top hair, it’s so wrong and outdated. The most essential thing is to get the right combination of upper and lower eyebrow hairs.
If you can ever make it in to Anastasia’s salon I highly recommend it. If possilbe grow out your brows so they can really define your arch from scratch. The price is $80 w/Anastasia herself which is a lot but VERY reasonable considering the demand. She could charge much more and the rich would pay but she’s keeping the service at a reasonable price point for us average folk in need of a special memory. The cost is $50 w/an eyebrow specialist.
