Other: Talking all things brows with expert Kristin Fisher
We all long for those perfectly grown and groomed brows that grace the faces of Cara Delevingne, Lily Collins and Keira Knightly. Brows are most certainly having a moment – in the form of overgrown and beautifully bushed. Gone are the days of over plucking and waxing them thin (can you just imagine the horror!?). Brows play a key role in defining and shaping your face. Naturally we want to know how to let them grow and find out the insider’s guide to maintaining our brows so we spoke with none other than Double Bay based brow expert, Kristin Fisher.
It all started when I was in boarding school and I would take my tweezers everywhere with me to tweeze my friends brows. It was in me from an early age!
First things first - wax, pluck or thread?
We wax, tweeze and tint. We have a beautiful wax that is so gentle on the skin then we tweeze and tint to perfection.
What is your eyebrow philosophy?
Natural, full and groomed to perfection with a subtle arch to frame your face.
What are the biggest eyebrow no no's?
Over plucking - it's a big no no! Also people tend to take far too much hair out from the front of their brows (closest to the bridge of their nose) - the hair is supposed to be there!
What does every woman need to do with their brows?
See a professional brow artist at some stage in their lives. The correct brow shape can take years off your look. Some say it's like getting a mini face lift every month.
What is the one brow product we all need?
A hard angle brush and a powder to fill in little gaps that most people at at some point through their brows. I also can't live without my brow gel
What is the best eyebrow secret?
Comb them upwards with a brow brush or brow gel. This tidies the look of any brow, regardless of how over due they are for a wax.
Finally, what's the key to growing your brows?
Leave them for as long as humanly possible. If you've over tweezed your brows or have had them waxed too think and would like to grow them back to a fuller, more natural shapre then the only way to do this is to not touch them for some time. Some clients come to us every 4 weeks saying they've been 'growing them out'. Come back to me when you've left them completely alone for 3-12 months!
