Last week, my eyebrows were ridiculously overgrown. They needed special attention that the nail salon waxing ladies couldn't handle. I usually go there or to a place like Bombay Beauty
for threading. They’re great for clean-up. But when my eyebrows need shape? I have to step it up a notch.
After the Anastasia Salon at Sephora Times Square couldn't fit me in, I made an appointment at Shobha
. I went to the Soho location and was treated by Hibba.
Other threading salons are like barber shops, this was more like a spa. Complimentary Tea, lovely decor and my brows were given the shape and attention they needed. Hibba worked with me to define the right shape for my face, rather than just having-at-it.
While Bombay is cheap ($7), Shobha is more upscale and you pay for it ($20). Nevertheless, it is still a bargain compared to the Anastasia Salon ($32) and you do not have to be groomed in front of a Times Square window, this is a concept I can endorse.
While I didn't try their Sugaring/Waxing. They do have a no-double-dip policy, which is nice. God knows what's floating around in the wax at most normal places.
