Brow WOW Day with Browhaus Manila

I was born late-bloomer and slightly boyish. haha! I don't really explore things to improve myself. Or when I have to, it's just because everybody had already and I make sure to  ask the experts to do it for me. 

Last week, I was invited for a Brow WOW day at Browhaus-Manila, Greenbelt 5 Branch. I never knew that there is a salon made only for our eye brows! Still, I wasn't sure of pursuing since I don't see the need to shave or trim off my brows, unless other wise needed for some special occasions like being  part of a wedding entourage, etc. But when I knew that Browhaus-Manila isn't just an ordinary salon, I didn't think twice! haha! 

Upon my visit, I learned that Browhaus is an International Specialty Salon for Eye Brows and Eye Lashes. I didn't actually know that there is such. All I know is that brow services can be found in any Hair & Beauty Salons.


Pioneered in Singapore, this international brow salon assures its customer with Brow Architects or Brow Masters trained by its International Instructors. So you are confident to entrust your eye brows with them. Aside from Singapore, other international branches are located in Singapore, London, New York, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Jakarta, & Bangkok. 

Last 2008, Browhaus was finally introduced here in the Philippines, franchised by Ms. Roberta Abad, Browhaus was initially situated in Serendra, Fort Bonifacio. Being a hit, their 2nd branch was later on launched at Greenbelt 5 in the year 2009, where I and my boyfriend recently had our first ever Brow WOW experience. :)

Come with me as I take a tour in their WOW facilities, products and services!


One thing that attracted me to immediately get inside is this: 

I love the green submarine theme in this branch. Green is my favorite color so don't wonder why. :) The color added a vibrant yet relaxing and welcoming ambiance to the Salon.

Inside the submarine is their ultramodern electric barber's chair:

As you would notice, Browhaus-Manila offers ultimate privacy with it's tiny clean room. Take note, they're not just dividers! There is a fire extinguisher and trash bin at the sides of the chair. As a customer, I would feel relieved because it's evident that aside from sanitation, safety is also their top priority.

What made me love this brow salon even more is their motto I spotted at the back of their submarine doors:
NO MESS EQUALS SUCCESS! 
You would also find different witty mini billboards in each room: 

             

                               

Love that Face Booked idea! haha.

Bloggers' Corner! They obviously love bloggers!

The little hall with purple walls adjacent to their Strip Wonderland.


Just so you know, I love taking photos of my face because there is where you can find my asset, my eyes! I thought they are good being left untouched. Little did I know that I can have my eyes emphasized and lively with Browhaus' BROW Services:

BROW CONSTRUCTION
Get your brow style in shape with their basic brow shaping! 
Classic Threading: Php580
Modern Tweezing: Php 580

Color Tweak: Php950
Have your hair color and eye brow perfect-matched to accentuate your facial features and add life to your gloomy face with only vegetable-based dyes that guarantees 100% safety!

BROWGRAPHY:

Shaping and Color Tweak 
Browhaus offers elegant 2-in-1 solution for you to achieve perfect brow balance for the price of 1. Get the right shape and the perfect shade with Browhaus' Browgraphy:
Classic Threading: P1,295
Modern Tweezing: P1,295

Instead of spending almost Php1600 for brow construction and tweak, I suggest you try Browgraphy instead where you can save up to Php300! Great deal right?

Since I haven't tried professional brow grooming services before, I was challenged by Ms. Shayne to try their Browgraphy! Geeez! Sounds exciting but scary! HAHAH!
Threading
Unlike other salons, they don't use threads that are for sewing. They use only 100% cotton threads for  brow shaping.


Threading hurts but not as much as plucking do. I remember my cousin pluck my brows that left my eyes in tears. It was my first time so maybe it will hurt a little lesser on my next threading session.
Tweezing time!
My brow architect here is very light-handed that I almost fell asleep on their electric chair! haha. I can feel she's carefully doing it because she knows that I am a first-timer. I can even hear her say 'sorry' every time she would with stroke me with the thread. She is also very nice for patiently answering all my questions! hahaha.


I also noticed that every time she would go out and go back in the sesh room, she would sanitize her hands with alcohol before touching my eye brows. I'll give 5 stars  to that! 

Wanna see how it's being skillfully done? Check out this video! 

HAHA. Thanks to Dawn for the vid! I didn't know he took this because my eyes were closed! hahaha!

The brow sesh took only less than 30 minutes. So if you're in a hurry, running of time or caught in an urgent situation, this service is actually time-friendly! haha.

Now let's compare! See the 'befores' and 'afters' here:
Before:

Look at those scattered and uneven eyebrows of mine! Hahaha. Browsing my photos before makes me feel somehow ashamed! How come I keep posting my face on facebook/twitter and other social media sites with this kind of eyebrows? Lifeless and dull! Gawsh! o_O

Good thing Browhaus is within reach to have my brows transformed into thick, compact and feisty one! Yey! See the transformation here! 
Favorite angle! haha

Now I have more reasons to take more more photos! haha. I am very satisfied with the result. The color tweak indeed added some glow in my face and my brows seem to finally found its right path. I was awed! Perfect!!!!

You just wait! Because aside from me, Dawn, my ever supportive and loving boyfriend also had a chance to be under the spotlight of browhaus' famous electric barber chair! Yes, Brow Grooming isn't for women alone. Guys can also have their brows cleaned. In Dawn's case, he actually pluck them since he has a very thick eyebrow like Jenny the Orangutan has. JOKE! PEACE! haha. And we were told not to do that ever again because we might over-plucked our brows and wrong handling of our brows can lead to infections and eyebrow ingrown hair. 


                       
Same with me, I can tell that he's also sleeping in these pictures! hahahaha!


 Before:

See? His brows could almost reach one another!

After:

You see the BIG Difference? From messy to cleany brows!!!

By the way, if you are thinking of trying out their brow shaping either by threading or tweezing, you have to wait for at least 5 Hours after the session before you can wash your face or apply any cosmetic on the threaded part of your face. Otherwise, it might cause hair ingrown or infection.

This In-House Product which is called ICE CREAM (sounds yummy), was applied to our brows to prevent too much swelling caused by threading. It feels cool and soothing to the skin.

Thanks to our brow architect Eds! ♥
