When you think of style, what usually comes to mind? Putting together a nice outfit, matching your purse or murse (man purse) with the correct coloured shoes, possibly adding a stylish cut to your current tresses? But did you know that your eyebrows, those lovely little arches just above your eyes also need to be stylized? I first came across the importance of groomed brows after I had a facial and the esthetician decided to pluck a few hairs just because. As a result, my eyes and face looked really different and better. So I haven’t looked back since. If you’re anything like me then, you’ll really appreciate my next 5 suggestions for places to get the best brow-shape Vancouver has to offer.
