I'd like referrals to someone professional, who will help me
to shape my eyebrows to look less scruffy, yet to look
natural. Thanks anon
I highly recommend Glam & Glow in El Sobrante. Ask for
Andrea & say that I referred you - they're the best!
Marilyn Jaeger Salon on College Ave in Rockridge. They do
an excellent job at shaping brows. Marilyn herself is
Thursday evenings. www.marilynjaegerskincare.com/
Miriam at Argania Salon on MLK (near Hearst) in Berkeley -
she does great work and is a wonderful person.
Kathleena Gorga is a great make-up artist as well as a
haircutter. Her clients include Alice Waters for Vogue. She
will do a great job on your brows. Her number is
510.710.0309. She works at the relaxing Revive Salon, 1601
Hopkins Street (near Monterey Market). Good luck! Terry
Reasonably priced eyebrow wax
I am seeking a reasonably priced, quality eyebrow wax, ideally in the lakeshore/grand lake
area. I posted maybe a year ago with this same question and was referred to someone who is
great and only charged $10, but now she has begun working at a salon and her prices have
gone up. So once again, does anybody have any recommendations?
My daughter and several of her friends have been using Dierdre O'Malley for
several years and they always look great. She used to be in Berkeley but now is
in the South Shore shopping center in Alameda, in the Beauty Center store. We
have taken friends to her who have been unhappy with previous waxings and she has
made all of them happy. I can't quote her current prices but you could call her
at 337-9933 to find out. She has all sorts of other related services also.
Instead of getting them waxed I get them threaded at an Indian beauty salon on
University Ave. in Berkeley. It's $8 or $9 and I always get fantastic results. I
go to Priya Beauty Parlor at 929 University Ave (between 7th St & 8th St) in
Berkeley. (510) 848-2261.
The best, best, best threader working there is a Tibetan girl named Shillu and I
highly recommend her.
I am looking for someone who does a good job shaping eyebrows, paying attention to
shape of the face, shape of the brow, etc. I have been going to someone at my
nail place, but she is inconsistent and though well-meaning, doesn't seem to have
''the eye'' for shaping. Can anyone recommend a person in Berkeley/Oakland area
who takes their time and has worked in the beauty business for a while? Also, am
looking for someone who doesn't mind using tweezers/threading as I am allergic to
I highly recommend Francesca at Alchemy (Colusa Circle) 558.9885.
I have been going to her for years and have never been disappointed. When I have not
been able to get an appointment, I've ventured on to other places (Benefit, etc.), and
can attest that no one is a detailed as she.
If she is too busy, try her sister, Erica, at Elixir on Hopkins in N. Berkeley:
I go to the Brow Lounge on College Ave in Rockridge and get my thick eyebrows threaded
by a Nepalese beautician (don't remember her name). More reviews here:
You should think about seeing Alresa from Cloud Nine/Brow lounge. She is the owner of
both places. They are both located in Rockridge. She does an amazing job (I have been
seeing her for 4 years)! Here is the website
Ask for Beth at ''Benefit Cosmetics'' on 4th street in Berkeley.
She is THE best brow person. I've been going to her for years.
She indeed has an eye for faces and shape/proportion, and she is very professional.
She always does wax for me, so you should call to see if she will just do tweezing. I
won't go anywhere else.
Benefit on 4th street
Alresa at Cloud 9 Salon is the best in the bay area for threading. The Salon is
located at: 5495 Claremont Ave Oakland, CA 94618-1156. The phone number is: (510)
I've been going to Maxi on Telegraph Ave in Berkeley for years.
Ask specifically for Ellie. She takes her time, is careful, doesn't like
over-plucking, and does threading and tweezing. For me she does only tweezing and
always manages to get a beautiful shape. Ive tried numerous other places, and she's
been the best.
Go to bibiskin care its in San Francisco but she is the greatest .I have been getting
my eyebrows threaded all my life (since
teenage) and when someone messes my eyebrows- I go to bibi. Just create an account on
her website and set up your own appointment.
If you want someone in Berkeley, ask for Shielo in Priya.
Eyebrow shaping for thinning eyebrows
I'm hesitant to go have my eyebrows shaped or waxed, because in
the past they've really made them too thin, and my brows are
thinning these days, as I get older. I'd like to learn how to
apply powder or liner to make them look fuller (but not fake).
Where can I go to get a conservative brow shaping and some
Preferably Oakland, Berkeley, Lamorinda or WC. Thanks
I use a wonderful woman named Jana (Yana) who owns her own place
in Pleasant Hill, European Touch Day Spa (925) 677-7221. She also
does facials, massage, manicures and pedicures. She also has great
products for skin care, especially ''anti-aging,'' but is not at
all pushy. She's easy to reach and getting an appt. usually takes
just a day or two. I hope you give her a try, she is from Europe
and the time and attention she gives her clients is just amazing.
I have tried salons for shaping, professional cosmotologists, and
a variety of makeup and was never satisfied. For nearly a near
now, I have been coloring my eyebrows myself, using a dark shade
of brown haircolor . I love the outcome! I buy 1 box of naturtint
haircolor (from Spain) from Elephant Pharmacy, which lasts about 6
or more months. I mix equal equal parts of the color and creme in
a plastic container and apply with a thin makeup brush, leaving on
about 20 minutes, then removing with a paper towel. Avoid eye
contact, of course! It really brings out my eyes and facial
expressions. It might look a bit heavy the first day or 2 but
fades after that to look very natural.
Looking more expressive
You've touched on one of my favorite subjects, Eyebrows 101!
Filling in brows to make them a nice, natural shape is pretty
easy. You just need a good hard formula pencil like the one from
Shu Uemura $22 or the Supernatural Brow Pencil by Philosophy $18.
You can find them at Nordstrom, Sephora or online. Go for the
color that matches your brows. Following your natural brow shape,
make little wispy dashes with the pencil so it looks like natural
hairs. Extend the end of the brow out and up a tiny bit, no one
should notice your little trick. Very subtle. Not only will you be
defying gravity, you''ll create a well defined frame for your
eyes. Avoid using a soft, blobby pencil and drawing the brow on
like a kid pressing with a crayon. I've been a film and TV makeup
artist for 20 years and the two pencils I mentioned are the best
and worth the money, I promise.
Your friendly local makeup artist, Sandra
I've been going to Maxi on Telegraph Ave (at Haste) in Berkeley
for years. Ask for Elie. She does threading and just tweezing,
which is what I get. She shapes them really well and is very
conservative about not overdoing it (which is why she tweezes very
carefully and slowly instead of waxing, etc.)
You can go to the make-up counter at Macy's in the Broadway
Shopping Center in Walnut Creek. They will shape your eyebrows.
I bought a product, the name of which I can't recall right now,
that was like a mascara for the eyebrows. It helps thinning
eyebrows and also works like an eyebrow pencil. The whole process
cost me less than $30.
I love Rachel at Barberella in Berkeley (on San Pablo). She makes
my brows totally natural looking, and also has a lot of experience
in makeup application. (510) 548-3552
I wanted to respond to a comment made by another poster regarding using haircolor to dye her eyebrows. please be careful. that dye is made for the hair on top of our heads, not our eyebrows, and there are warnings on (at least some) of those hair color boxes that state misuse may cause blindness.
better safe than sorry
Seeking aesthetician for eyebrow waxing
i'm looking for a reasonably priced person to wax my eyebrows. i
normally go to Benefit on fourth st, which i love, but it is
expensive ($18.00) and out of the way.
i live near lakeshore ave/grand ave/lake merritt so somewhere in that
area would be great. i have been to some of the nail shops on grand
ave because they are more reasonably priced, but i find the work to
be inconsistent and rushed.
i am open to other areas if necessary. any recommendations
Try Esther Torres in Montclair. Her place is called Au Natural.
2064 Antioch Court, Suite B. Oakland 94611, 510-339-1152. I don't
know her rates, but she has a wonderful work ethic.
If you don't mind driving to Alameda, there's a great salon called
Joanne's at 1619 Park Street, between Buena Vista and Lincoln.
They provide all waxing services, plus nail & hair - full spa
service. Very reasonable prices. I especially like their
mani-pedi special - best I've found in years! 523-4572
Have you ever tried the Indian art of threading? I never wax
anymore, now that I've discovered threading. It's cheap and it
gives a much smoother line. It's guaranteed to leave you looking
like a Bollywood star!
My favorite place right now is Priya Beauty Parlour on University
Ave. and 9th in Berkeley. Be sure and ask for the Tibetan girl --
her name is Shillo. 510-848-2261. They charge just $8.
Caveat 1 -- this salon is not a restful and beautiful place -- it's
sort of grungy, but it's got a sort of cult following.
Caveat 2 -- In any threading shop, be sure and insist that the
technician use hand sanitizer before she touches your face. Do not
be shy about doing so.

Eyebrow waxing for bushy eyebrows
I am looking for a good eyebrow groomer. I have those type of bushy
eyebrows that literally grow in four different directions with small bald
spots throughout. People tell me to stop plucking, but I'm not, that's
just how they grow. I paid a whopping $60 once to this person who did the
most marvelous job ever, then he moved. He spent two whole hours on them.
He also mentioned he worked on one other person once with eyebrows worse
than mine! Can anyone relate and recommend someone? Thanks
I go to Lee at Piedmont Hairport in Oakland on Piedmont Ave near
41st. I think she's great and it's reasonable, but I used to go to
77 Maiden Lane in SF.
There was a woman named Paige that used to work there (don't know
if she's still there), but she might have what you need. She's
extremely detailed and gentle -- she actually uses tweezers. But
because of that she can really work with anything -- and the first
visit is $50, but then $35 (I believe) after that. I don't know if
they still do it this way, but it used to be that at the first
visit she also takes a little more time and does a little lesson in
how to do your own eyebrow maintenance.
Browsed around for my brows too
I recommend Crystal in El Cerrito/Berkeley. She is awesome and
probably won't take 2 hours--she has a good eye and has always
groomed my eyebrows to suit my face. I think she charges $24; the
only reason I don't go to her anymore is because my neighbor does
my eyebrows for free now.
She works out of Elixir salon in Berkely on Hopkins (across from
Monterey Market) and in El Cerrito on San Pablo (near Safeway/Longs
at Moeser). Her number is (707) 328 5693 Joanna
I have been grooming my very bushy eyebrows for years at Thornhill
Salon, on Thornhill Dr. Julia, the owner is the best! And it is
only $10! 510 339 1280.
I am happy to share with you the name of my amazing esthetician,
who is a true master when it comes to eyebrow shaping. Diana is in
Walnut Creek, and well worth a trip under the tunnel. I too, have
unruly brows, and no natural arch. Thanks to Diana, I actually get
compliments on these brows - no lie!. She is an amazing talent,
and whether it's eyebrows, or any other service, she is THE best,
and very reasonable. You will love what she can do with your
Call her for an appt - Diana 925-200-7071
Salon One in Alameda is on Park Street. I found the entire staff
to be quite competent with eyebrow styling and waxing. Very
I would like to recommend an absolutely wonderful professional
waxer named Amy Romano. She is in Oakland on Redwood Road in the
Lincoln Square Plaza. She is very good at her profession and has a
very soft touch when it comes to waxing. I can't speak highly
enough about her and refer people to her all the time because she
is just that good! She can be reached at (510) 332-1889 and she is
very accommodating when making appointments. Give her a try, you
will love the results.
Experienced Eye Brow Stylist Needed
I really need a stylist to fix waxing job by another stylist. I can
only travel to Oakland or South Berkeley. Thank you very much.
I HIGHLY recommend Amy Romano. She is helping me reshape my eyebrows
after years of my tweezing. You can call her at: 510-332-1889, her
address is 4110 Redwood Rd. Suite, 103 in Oakland.
Loving my shapely eyebrows
My daughter has been going to Deirdre O'Malley to have her brows shaped
for about 5 years now and she is very happy with the outcome. She has
taken several of her friends there also and everyone has had good
results, including at least one friend who had had a bad job done
somewhere else. She is in The Beauty Center, 2973 College Ave. near
I would recommend Julia at La Nana salon&spa on solano
She does work on your eye brow as she is doing a real art work and she
takes her time to do a perfect job.I love what she does on my eye brow.
Here is the phone#
I can't recommend highly enough Deloris at Blush: A Day Spa. She was
trained by Hollywood top brow folks and worked with the Hollywood and
L.A. crowd before coming here. She was trained by the same person that
trained the brow expert shown recently on Oprah. All this stuff aside,
I can just tell you that my whole face seems prettier and clearer after
my brows are done. I always had confidence in doing my own brows, but
she suggested a different shape than what I had been doing for years
(based on my face structure) and boy was she right. She's also just a
very kind person.
Her salon is located right off of the Sonoma square, so I know it'll be
a drive, but even if you only have her do them every once in awhile
it's worth it. You can even make it a self-care day in Sonoma.
Blush: a day spa. 561 Broadway Street, Suite C. Sonoma, 1.800.929.7723.
Hope it helps -
I have had electrolysis on my very heavy eyebrows to a point
where they are reasonable. However, they now need to be shaped
and I am reluctant to have the electrolyicist do that. Can
anyone recommend someone talented in shaping eyebrows,
especially thick ones? I have had lots of waxers take way too
much off in the past, and I want someone who won't go
overboard. I would prefer the East Bay but would go to SF for
this as well if need be.
My daughter has been going to Deirdre O'Malley for several years
and is very happy with her brow shaping. She has also brought
several of her friends there and Deirdre has done a great job
for all of them. She is in the Beauty Center on College at
Ashby, 2973 College Ave, Berkeley. 510-849-0383 Tell her
Nicole recommended you.
BeneFit on Fourth Street. Super convenient. Done in less than 15
minutes. I felt like I had a complete make-over because the brows
made that much of a difference.
New Mommy Looking Less Tired!
you need not search any further for a perfect esthetician.
rachel at barberella in berkeley, on san pablo at dwight, is
the best i've ever had. i've been going to her for years. i
even followed her when she left Benefits on 4th street to go to
barberella. she's great for all-over waxing. when it comes to
eyebrows, she listens. if anything, i have to ask her to take
a little more off from time to time. i cannot recommend her
You should try Ahi at La Belle spa in Albany for shaping your
eyebrow.She does a very good job with mine and she is very
sweet.Here is her number:510-525-8700
Try my eyebrow specialist. She does great job for eyebrow. I
find her on tribe.net. She has so many good recommandations
for doing good eyebrows. Her website is www.luciahb.com
I'd recommend Rachel at Barbarella Salon in Berkeley on San
Pablo at Dwight. It's a really cool place with super nice
Any suggestions for eyebrow waxing in N. Berkeley or Albany or
El Cerrito? How much does it cost? Is it painful? How long does
skin stay red? How long does it last? How long do you have to
let the hair grow so it will work? (My 13-year-old daughter
wants to get rid of the center of a unibrow.)
In response to recommendations wanted for eyebrow waxing, try
Roberta at Berkeley Facial Studio. She charges $10.00 or if you
sign up for a series of 5, you can get a discount from that
price. Call for an appointment: 525-8933. Her studio is at 746
Gilman (at 4th), Berkeley. Roberta has been giving me facials
and brow waxes for years. She has a delightful personality and
does a beautiful job. Her facials are very reasonable, too.
I go to Face Magic on Pomona ave in Albany for eyebrow waxing.
It costs....maybe $20.00 or a tad more.
They do a great job. Yes, it hurts...waxing hurts, but only for
a second or two and it lasts, for me, a month or 2. My skin is
usually red for afew hours after so you don't want to do it on
the way to a party or prom!!
I like waxing cause it's quick and easy. Hurts a lot less than
tweezing, and at my age (51) I can't see well enough to tweeze
properly without my glasses.
Rachel at Benifit! She is awesome and I think its like 17!? I
give her a few dollars tip too though. Also she is so sweet and
would be more than happy to get rid of a unibrow! She listens
well and is gentle. Make sure to say its her first time. It
hurts, but only for a second. She puts oil down on thie skin
first to make it not hurt as much, and at the end she puts on
cooling gel. Make an appointment and expect to be red that day
or maybe two days since it's her first time... Good luck!
I go to Festoon in North Berkeley and like either of the women
who do waxing. I have very thick brows and don't go as often
as I should, so it's a bit painful, but it's quick. The skin
around my brows is pink and sensitive for a couple of hours
afterwards. I usually go every 8-10 weeks but really should go
every 6 weeks. I think I pay around $25.
I suggest Benefit on Fourth Street in Berkeley. There is some
pain involved, but it goes away very quickly. Good luck.
I recommend Benefit on Fourth St. I've been having my brows
waxed there once a month for years and it's fast (10 minutes),
not as painful as plucking (ouch) and get's rid of the unibrow.
The redness generally is gone by the end of the day. It costs
about $15, tip not included. It's a great way to improve your
face without surgery or too much expense. I think it's
appropriate for teens with heavy brows.
You can spend anywhere from $7 to $18. All of these are in Berkeley:
Sharp Nails on San Pablo in Berkeley (at Gilman) has very inexpensive
waxing, but maybe not great for a first timer. Your daughter might enjoy
Festoon, which is a pricier salon on MLK (at Rose). Just about any full-
service salon does waxing. Surfaces and Azul (both off Solano) also
offer waxing. Benefit on 4th Street is another option but the waxing is
done in public (not a private room), so if your daughter is shy it's not a
great option. A good salon will put a cooling ointment or gel on the
waxed area which will tone down the red. Redness can last up to a half
hour or so; I don't have very sensitive skin so it might last longer on
someone with sensitive skin. I've had my brows waxed for a long time,
so it doesn't hurt (to me, it feels like a zipper being pulled along my
brow) but others have said it does hurt them. For the first time, I'd
probably try Festoon (even tho they're pricey) as they use a softer wax
than most places do. You can ask the waxer if she can apply light
pressure right after removing the wax. This is really the number one
thing you can do to transform your face--in a good way! Forget makeup,
etc. Having your brows done totally opens up your eyes and over (long)
time the hair grows back less and less so that unibrow will one day be
Eyebrow waxing usually costs about $20, plus a tip (I tip 20%). I will let three people touch my brows: Crystal, at Darin David
Salon on Solano, and Beth and Bonnie, both at Benefit on 4th
Street in Berkeley. An unskilled eyebrow waxer can really mess
up your brows, so you shouldn't go to just anyone! I do not
consider a brow waxing painful, but I have been waxing my brows
for many, many years. I think people do find it painful on the
first few tries, although for me the area between the brows is
much less sensitive than the area beneath the arch. I usually
wait 2-3 weeks between waxes, but if the hair is really short,
they can use tweezers (which is a bit more painful and time-
consuming). It does cause redness, and sometimes blemishes, for
me. My redness goes away in about an hour, but it depends on
how fair- or sensitive-skinned you are. If you go to Crystal,
Beth or Bonnie, they will tell you what to do because they are
waxing experts! Good luck.
My hubby's brows have been growing somewhat crazy and bushy over
the last year, and all my tweezing/snipping is getting
exhausting! He would be willing to get them professionally
waxed, but is interested in a place that is low-key, and not too
crowded (which rules out Benefit, where I get mine done). Anyone
know a place that has experience with waxing men's brows,
preferably in a discreet environment? Is this weird (he wanted
me to ask that!)??
The Handsome Unibrow's Wife :)
The uni-brow specialist is Susan Parks. Her phone number is 865-0900. Her
website is hair-be-gone.com. She can turn a hairy man HUNKY permanently.
Try Zahras at Hilltop mall. She has a back room that you can
request to use. If that isn't close when you call around ask if
they use private rooms. Surfaces in Berkeley I think may do
There is not a thing wierd about a man wanting to wax his
eyebrows or anything else, and Amy Romano at Natural
Expressions will have him feeling the same way. She is the
only esthetician in a small shop. Her room is right off the
waiting area so he won't be wandering through some huge
salon past gals getting their hair and nails done. She is
great and does have male clients. I highly recommend her.
Lip, Brow and Brazilian Experienced
Face Magic on Pomona Street off of Solano avenue in Albany does
mens brow waxing. 526-3223
The person I always see there is a man named Manuel. There are a
few other estheticians there too (women) but I've only seen
Manuel. It's a nice looking and quiet place. Never crowded when
I've been there. He tells me that men come all the time for
facials and waxing.
Entourage salon in Orinda has a private back room for waxing. I
don't know if they have experience waxing men's brows, but they
do a nice job cutting my husband's hair. (For the record, I
don't think it's weird.)
Not sure what location you are looking for but Tashana Master at Master
Waxing Studio on Central Ave. in Alameda is wonderful. She does
have male clients and it's her own studio so you would likely only see
the next client, no crowds. She's really great at what she does and
she's a really nice person too!
Your husband might want to try Diedra at Beauty Center at 2973
College Avenue, 845-2485. She has a room in the back where she
does the waxing so it's pretty discreet, and she's very good.
I'm looking for a place for eyebrow waxing. I tried
"About Face and Body" in Rockridge a couple of times,
and both times I got rashes (which I didn't get from
more expensive places not in the Bay Area). I called
the Claremont Hotel Spa and they have a minimum of 50
minutes and charge a small fortune. Any suggestions,
preferably in the Oakland/Berkeley area?
Try Festoon Salon (corner of Rose and MLK in Berkeley).
Ask for Laura. A brow wax is $17 and worth every penny.
I go to Francesca at Elixir on Hopkins (down from Monterrey Market). She
does a great job waxing as well as facials. Eyebrow wax is $15 (I think).
You can reach her at 510.526.1700.
i have had facials and waxing done at "ambiance" salon
on delaware, down near 4th street shopping area- i can't
remember the name of the woman- but i think they are
pretty good. also BENEFIT on 4th street is o.k. you
might want to try to find out which waxes make you
I have a recommendation for the eyebrow waxing. I go to Beth at Benefit on
4th street in Berkeley. She is great and I never got a rash. She charges
$13.00 and it is wise to make an appointment. Hope this helps.
Benefit on 4th street is reasonable, and they do a great job.
I really like Benefit Cosmetics on Fourth Street in Berkeley. It's very
easy to get an appointment and I've always been pleased with the
result. I can't recall the cost, but I think it's something like $12 or
I use Francesca at Elxir on Hopkins, in Berkeley. She is very gentle, very
kind and professional, plus the ambiance is wonderful.
I've had great results with a woman named Amy Hill,
at the Natural Expressions day spa in Montclair Village.
Number is 338-0464. She's done my brows about three
times and I've gotten exactly what I wanted; a basic
clean up that leaves my brows in a very natural shape.
She listens and will do what you want. She charges $15.
I go every couple of months as I can easily maintain
them myself in between. She also gives a great facial!
Good luck. Carolyn
I've liked the people at Ambiance, a tiny day spa on Fifth Street near
Hearst in Berkeley. Both Eliza and Jeannie have been gentle, friendly, and
the cost for waxing was much less than the Claremont or some waxing salons
I've tried in the city.
Elizabeth Arden, Post Street, San Francisco. Ask for
Raquel. She is not the cheapest, but she is the best.
As far as rashes and waxing.sometimes that cannot be
avoided. Waxing really does irritate the follicle.
A good esthetician will minimize the irritation, but
may not be able to avoid it completely.
I just had mine done by a woman named Candy at Azul Spa
on Ensenada off Solano Ave in Berkeley. I liked my brows
better after I had them done in San Francisco but she
did a good job. You can't beat Azul for the price,
location and atmosphere. They have some really great
people there and the ceiling is beautiful. Claremont is
over rated as far as I am concerned!
Try the HairTaylor salon in Montclair, and ask for
Odessa. She charges about $30 (?) for color and wax,
so wax alone is probably even less. She does a nice
I go to a place in Oakland (Crystal Nails) on 109th and
MacArthur, it is not a classy place "Claremont" but the
lady MeMe is excellent and they are very economical.
I have been going to Festoon Salon in N. Berkeley for eyebrow waxing. It
costs $17. I
have dry sensitive skin and haven't had a problem with rashes or anything
there is some redness for an hour afterwards). I never had my eybrows
waxed until about
3 months ago, nor have I plucked in about 30 years. So I was a little
scared. But I
found I didn't mind it at all, and now after 4 trips I kind of look forward
to it. They
also do wonderful facials.
I have a GREAT woman who does my brows. She no longer
waxes because she finds it to be too irritating to her
clients' skin. She tweezes and also favors that because
she can be more precise. She does a beautiful job
(I have actually gotten compliments on my brows!) She
also tints mine as they are very light. She has been
at a salon in Oakland but is now working from her home
in Pleasant Hill. I think it is worth the drive. Her
name is Bettye George. Phone number 925-787-1241.
She offers other services like special occasion makeup
and stuff but is not pushy at all about those services.
I think this may be the least expensive of the recommendations I've seen on
this subject so far and they do a great job: Mayfair Hair and Nails on upper
Solano Ave. I pay $10 and that includes tip! Historically I was a real weenie
about even plucking my brows because it seemed too painful, but after the
first waxing at Mayfair, I converted!
Does anyone know a good salonist in the East Bay who will do an
eyebrow arch by plucking instead of waxing? I know someone in
San Francisco, but would like something closer to home.
I go to Nadine Farsi who is now at the Elixir Salon on Hopkins
across from Monterey Market. She just plucks eyebrows, no wax.
She's great and is also very knowledgable about makeup and skin.
She has a long waiting list but I've squeezed in by calling and
asking for a cancellation time.
