The space is artfully divided into different sections so nothing feels crowded and there are areas to relax whilst not disrupting the customers having their treatments. A sign, encouraging guests to “hygge”, glows above a lounge area where a variety of beauty products are also on display.
I’m offered a beverage—matcha lattes and chai are some of the drinks on offer—led to my seat, and introduced to my therapist. Though Brow Bar is best known for their brow laminations, I opted to try their eyelash lift because it was a procedure I was more familiar with having done it multiple times in the past. My therapist was extremely accommodating; she asked if I was fine with the room temperature, went over the different steps of the treatment and how long it would take (roughly an hour), and discussed the options for my final look. My therapist used moulds to curl my lashes upwards so that she could attend to each lash individually. Throughout the treatment, she explained the unique characteristics of my lashes, such as those that were a result of hormone growth and the areas she chose not to touch. I always find having a lash lift allows me time to disconnect; first timers may find the feeling of having your lashes turned up for an extended period uncomfortable, though the procedure itself is not painful at all. Once my therapist announced that she was finished, she brought over a mirror so that I could see my new look—immediately my eyes were more bright and open, my lashes looked healthy, and I could see the change this seemingly simple treatment had on my whole face.
