BEAUTY: To pluck or not to pluck?
24th Sep 2012
Is it wrong of me to be a little amused by this product? I know I probably don’t take enough care of myself and need to buck my ideas up a bit on the beauty front, but honestly – a Brow Menu?
It is brought to us by Shavata, she of Shavata Brow Studios who first set up shop in Harrods’ Urban Retreat and is now expounding her message to the badly-plucked masses. “This is my passion. The entire process of creating the perfect arch fascinates me,” she saysssssssssssssssss (oops, sorry, fell asleep for a second there), “and I am constantly thinking of new ways to make this previously daunting beauty task simpler for my clients.”
Admittedly my eyebrows are not high maintenance – not bushy or angry or the victim of a frenzied threading attack that’s sent their natural arch all askew. If you have trouble getting your brows right, maybe this selection of stencils, each named after a famous namesake, might be of use. In which case I’ll shut my trap and simply tell you that celebrity eyebrows like Adele’s (full and distinctive) and Kylie’s (slim high arch) can now be transplanted to your own grateful forehead.
And gentlemen, don’t think I have forgotten you. I bet you’ve had some sleepless nights worrying about your Denis Healey’s. I recommend choosing a George (naturally high arch), a Brad (straighter line) or a Jude (curved but bushy) for a more modern interpretation on the classic brow.
Hey, no problem, always happy to help!
The Brow Menu launches nationwide in House of Fraser and Harvey Nichols today from £17. http://www.shavata.co.uk/
