Up until a year ago I never paid much attention to brows and would wax and tweeze them myself (translation: over waxing and over tweezing). However, once I started my blog and paying more attention to beauty trends, I realized how much of a difference well kept brows will do for a person and knew that if I had any hope in achieving perfect brows, I’d have to turn to the pros.
Since then, I haven’t looked back! I have tried my share of salons which have been good, but not great. I kept wanting to go bigger and bolder, but most times the shape and color were not what I had hoped for….at least until my last experience. Enter Courtney Allen from Milano Hair Design Studio in Wicker Park. The brow master of Chicago saving unruly brows one wax and tint at time! She really knows what she’s doing! I really appreciated the fact that she went over what the shape of my brow should look like and she wasn’t afraid to go a little darker with the tint. But don’t just take my word for it! Be sure to check out her Instagram page to see more beautiful brows and happy clients!
And just because I wanted a little more scoop, Courtney shared a little bit about her exprience as Chicago’s go-to brow gal.
M: When did you begin doing brows/lashes?
C: I started my esthetics career in 2008
M: What is your favorite part about being everyone’s go-to brow gal?
C: I love when people can recognize my work. I had two clients that didn’t know each other compliment each other’s eyebrows and then my name popped up. I did both of the young ladies eyebrows.
M: Any favorite beauty products you recommend for brows?
C: Neu brow for those who have over tweezed or waxed.
M: I’m sure you’ve seen your fair share of over-plucked brows, any suggestions on how to build them back?
C: Leave everything to the professionals. Don’t try to fix your brows. People tend to over tweeze to fix an error they made. Fake it till you make it by filling them in with a powder, pencil, wax or gel.
