Confession: Before my trip back east during the summer, I had never had my eyebrows done before. I know, right?! But in my defense, I was just a little scared. My eyebrows aren’t that thick, they’re pretty shapeless, and they’re kinda sparse. One bad waxing and I could have gross, pencil-thin brows–so when Hibba NYC contacted me about coming in to try threading, I was intrigued. Especially since Hibba herself calls what she does “browology”–the art of creating perfect eyebrows for the unique shape of your face. I knew I would have a personalized experience, so I decided to go for it.
And am I ever glad that I did! Hibba talked me through the quick process of threading in her beauty studio in SoHo. She was warm and welcoming, which was great since I was nervous, and I trusted her judgment with my eyebrows. She created a soft, natural-looking arch that suited my face perfectly. They weren’t too thin, but they looked neat and shaped. For a night out, my trusty eyebrow pencil was pretty much all I needed for eyebrow perfection. I just wish there was someone like Hibba in Chicago! For you lucky NYC gals, find Hibba at 448 W. Broadway or call 212.260.4321 to book an appointment. Hibba’s browology threading service is $15 and you can find out more at hibbabeauty.com.
