Shu Uemura Tokyo Brow Station at Brown Thomas: Review

Having tried everything from waxing and threading to the full HD experience (read about it here!), I'm always on the lookout for the next big thing in brows. In Dublin right now, that would be the new Shu Uemura Tokyo Brow Station in Brown Thomas - so I popped in after work on Friday to check it out.

Shu Uemura Tokyo Brow Bar Results
The Shu Uemura approach involves measuring the proportions of your face with a protractor (!), before brows are 'manicured' with a set of specially designed, curved scissors. The idea is that this will be kinder to the skin around your eyes than other methods - though any rogue hairs remaining will be gently tweezed.  My brows were finished off with pencil and, 10 minutes and €20 later, I was good to go.

I liked that they kept the fullness in my brows while tidying them and slightly defining the arch. The shape is natural but groomed,  and should be easy enough to maintain. I was less keen on sitting at the counter in the middle of a busy makeup floor - but for good results at a reasonable price, I think I can deal. 

Are you big on brows? How do you keep yours in check?
