Whether you're moseying through Venice Beach or strutting down Melrose Boulevard, you need to be camera-ready here in Los Angeles. And you don't need to wear designer dresses or carry $60,000 handbags to look good. But, what you do
need to have are great eyebrows—perfectly groomed HD brows that make a striking impression and frame your face.
Ask any makeup artist what's the first step to your favorite beauty look, and he will say the right brows. Tailored brows are the key to the Angelino scruffy-chic look, the Real Beverly Hills look, the California beach babe look—or any look for that matter.
If you do your eyebrows at home, great. Check out Cindy Crawford's advice
to help you up your brow game. If you're like me, and you can't tweeze a symmetrical line to save your life, then get them done professionally. I prefer to have my eyebrows groomed by a shrewd makeup artist, and do between-time maintenance myself at home. (Or, I just forget, and then one day, I look in the mirror and realize I need to get my brows done, pronto!
Professional brow services are worth the investment if
you find the right aesthetician. But with dozens of methods for hair removal, as well as hundreds of salons and spas offering brow shaping services in Los Angeles, how do you choose? Do not select your brow professional in a rush (trust me!). Start with a local's reference; on that note, we've got the LA babes covered right here!
For Expert Brow Designs & Eyebrow Tattoos
With a large studio prominently featured on Sunset Boulevard, Sublime Eyes is a go-to beauty bar for the perfect brow shaping experience. You'll want to book an appointment, especially if you plan to have an elaborate session and add other salon-based services to the package. Their technicians offer eyelash extensions, threading, waxing, permanent makeup, or skincare, and are skilled enough to execute more exotic eyebrow requests
. They know what's trending and make recommendations based on your face shape.
For Quick, Gorgeous & Natural Brows
Aruna Threading Studio
A Hollywood local for 20 years, I only let one person touch my brows: Aruna. Her simple brow bar is tucked away from the bustle on Hollywood Boulevard. I sometimes hop over to see her without an appointment before a meeting or when I'm rushing for an event and I need a touch up. She offers threading services and henna applications. Aruna is very friendly, quick, and can accommodate any reasonable request, including "tame these unruly brows!"
For DL Bridal Eyebrow Tattoo
Makeup By Rachel
For eyebrow tattoos and permanent makeup that looks natural, look to the veterans in Korea Town. These seasoned beauticians have seen thousands of face shapes, misaligned shapes, and unsightly hairs. Among them, you will find Rachel, who has over 20 years of experience in the beauty industry. At her salon in the Koreatown Wilshire Center, she offers bridal makeup services, permanent makeup application, and eyelash extensions. Her finished work is bold, clean, and natural.
For An All-Around Luxurious Experience
If you're looking to skip the authentic Angelino brow experience and want to enjoy a sophisticated day in Beverly Hills, I recommend Mauds Of Beverly Hills. This beauty salon will accommodate nearly all of your beauty needs, including waxing, threading, and brow tint. You can make it a couples' experience as they also offer manscaping. Sip on the complementary champagne, sit back and relax.
For A Posh Spray Tan & Beauty Treat
Bella Cara is a cozy tanning spa and brow bar on Olympic Boulevard. Their eyebrow shaping services employ waxing and tweezing methods, and they also offer eyelash extensions, eyelash perms, facials, and makeup applications. I recommend treating yourself to a day at Bella Cara before a big event, like a wedding or cocktail party. Ask for Jill who is very friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable.
For A Shop Therapy Quicky
Benefit Brow Bar
There are a ton of amazing things to do in Downtown LA like grabbing a bite at an upscale eatery, browsing art at a street fair, and shopping in the Fashion District. If you're on the go, why not stop by the Benefit Brow Bar at Macy's? You will get your department store browsing fix and end up leaving with neatly groomed brows, too.
For those who are visiting Los Angeles, take advantage of the city's unique grooming experiences. Angelinos love upscale grooming treats (for reasonable prices) so why not live it up like the locals?
