Big. Beautiful. Brows. Ever since I saw the magnanimous Brooke Shields in the Blue Lagoon–I have wanted her eyebrows. And Natalie Portman–second best brows in Hollywood (next to Brooke Shields, of course). Unfortunately for me, I have tiny, puny eyebrows. That is–I HAD tiny, puny eyebrows. No more my friends!
This all started when I moved into my new building and noticed that the lighting in the elevator, quite frankly, makes me look like shit. Basically, it’s dark with two spotlights above making all these shadows on my face and making it look like I have absolutely no eyebrows. This elevator is covered in mirrors, and I know it’s not just in my own head because Joe also complained that the lighting in the elevator makes him look like shit too. This is definitely a problem we will bring up with the strata council–however, I needed to find a cure in the meantime.
I promptly googled ‘yaletown eyebrows’ and behold–found this! Bombay Brow Bar — specializing in only brows. Yes folks–just brows. I have to say this is a very Yaletown type place–chic, cool, trendy, but not terribly priced for the location. The bright fuschia walls with a modern twist on traditional Indian decor is pretty cool–as is the menu that pretty much caters to any eyebrow need you have (are you a boy with a unibrow–they have something for you too!). This concept is pretty genius, and I’m thrilled that I left with defined, lush brows (through threading and tinting). I admit I was terrified to get them threaded–but it was like angels were threading my eyebrows with clouds–did not hurt at all. For those of you with lots of eyebrows who bitch about the maintenance–save it! You can always pluck eyebrows but you can’t grow them! Seriously, I feel very strongly about this. Bombay Brow Bar–we shall meet again.
