For those who don't need the entire spa experience but still want shaply brows, these Charlotte brow bars are a one-stop shop.
Benefit Cosmetics Brow Bar
Aesthetician Amee White uses Benefit's specialized process in which nine sticks and nine strips (no double-dipping allowed) are used to wax unwanted hair on brows, lips, and chin. A light makeup application follows each waxing to cover the redness so you don't walk around with a red, puffy face. Need something extra to calm the irritation? Pick up Boo Boo Zap ($18). SouthPark, 704-364-4251, ext. 8240
Relax inside the Ivey's Building in uptown while Heather Bell thoroughly explains her plan for your brows before she gets to work using wax (they keep it at the coolest setting, so no burns allowed) and tweezers. They also offer eyebrow threading, which is the perfect service for those with sensitive skin or who are taking skincare medications. For a dramatic look also try eyelash extensions ($25), which last about two weeks. 127 N. Tryon St., Ste. 257, 704-887-9731
Eyebrow guru Carla Jones (she's also the owner) focuses on beautiful brows for her client list, which includes local celebs from sports and television. The salon also offers full-body waxing services, brow and lash tinting, and semipermanent lash application. Or, for a more luxe spa treatment, the Signature Facial offers an exfoliating treatment that includes a skin analysis and face, neck, and shoulder massage ($70). 5107 Piper Station Dr., Ste. B, 704-544-2769
