These incredible salons will help you put your best brows forward all year long
Everyone knows that eyes are the windows to the soul, so what does that make eyebrows? The curtains maybe? We’re not sure—but one thing we do know is this: if your eyebrows are out of whack, it throws off your whole face, and no one is going to care how deep and brooding those baby blues are.
Manicured eyebrows are one of the easiest ways to look polished and put-together, because they’re one of the face’s most prominent features. If you lived through the 90s, you’ll remember the horror of the super-thin eyebrow, and how universally unflattering it was. Well, thankfully society has moved past that.
These days, it’s not about thin eyebrows or thick eyebrows, it’s about finding the brow that frames your face perfectly. If you’re ready to upgrade your look, read on to find our favourite places for eyebrow grooming and shaping in Hong Kong, everything from waxing to microblading.
You can’t start a list about great eyebrows without the international brow experts: Benefit Cosmetics. This San Francisco-born beauty super-house has a brow-bar right in Central that you can stop by to get your brows looking their best. Their Brow Experts are available for brow styling – which includes a consultation- and waxing to give you the perfect look. Plus, they can help you find products to maintain your brows – we love the Goof Proof eyebrow pencil!
Benefit Cosmetics Brows a Go-Go

If you’re done fussing with your waxing appointments and eyebrow pencils, then head to Princess Brows for their famous semi-permanent microblading. Like eyelash extensions, this is a way to cut time on your beauty routine and always look your best, whether you’re just waking up or swimming in the ocean. It took 12 years of research to perfect their technique, which gives the effect of ultra-fine, delicate hair. Their stylists will map your face during a consultation, and find the best look for you. Then, they’ll numb the area before applying the colour pigment with a microblade. It takes about two hours, but the results last for up to three years if you take care of them properly!

Another international favourite, Browhaus has outlets across Asia, London and New York. They were the first, and maybe still the only, ones to open a space devoted exclusively to lashes and brows – and their dedication to the craft means one thing for you: gorgeous eyebrows. They’re constantly researching to find the best products, equipment and techniques, and they train all of their technicians at their own ITEC certified Browhaus Training School. They offer waxing, tweezing and even threading. If you’re a chronic over-plucker, pick up a tube of the Extend Lash & Brow Growth Serum, part of their Browgraphy product line.

Brow Atelier at Shu Uemura
Okay, so you’re not into waxing and you’re not ready to commit to microblading. Then book an appointment at the Brow Atelier, where brow shaping is an artform. They use gentle Japanese methods (#swoon) that you won’t find anywhere else in the city, and even trim the hair to give you beautiful depth. It may sound weird, but trust us – it looks great. Finish off the look with their famous sword-shaped brow pencil.
