Beauty blogger confession: I’d never had my eyebrows done professionally. So I decided to finally take the plunge and book an appointment at the Benefit Brow Bar to finally get them sorted!
I must admit, I very nearly chickened out at the very last minute – but I am so so glad I didn’t!
My Benefit Brow Bar experience started online a few weeks earlier when I made an appointment for a brow wax at the Benefit Brow Bar at Debenhams in Manchester. I knew I would be staying in Manchester for a couple of days before my birthday and thought it would be a nice little treat for myself! I love that Benefit give you the option to book an appointment online. The website also had the option to book a brow tint along with the brow wax but I thought I would go easy on myself seeing as it was my first time!
When I arrived at the Benefit counter in Debenhams, I was seated on a chair in a slightly more private corner where the lovely Benefit lady (I didn’t catch her name!) talked me through the whole process. As this was my first time, the lady explained the whole concept of brow mapping, which gives you an idea of the most ideal brow shape for your eye structure. Once the brow mapping was done, it was time for the brow wax!
In my head, I thought that a brow wax would be super painful – oh how wrong I was! All those years I had plucked my own eyebrows I was putting myself through a lot more pain than this brow wax! The brow wax was done by applying a warm wax to the area around my eyebrows, and by applying a cloth over the wax, any unwanted hairs were quickly and relatively painlessly removed. The lady was super professional and quick, and the whole procedure was over within 15 minutes.
I am super pleased with the results and I was also given a free mini Benefit Gimme Brow – which I absolutely love! I will definitely be heading back to the Benefit Brow Bar when my eyebrows next need to be done and I would highly recommend checking them out. Find out where your closest Benefit Brow Bar is here.
