• Review • The Brow Bar opens in Durban

The Brow Bar, La Lucia || Jane Wonder

Hiya everyone 

Eyebrows. Have they ever been as prolific as they are today? Cara Delevingne. Anastasia of Beverly Hills. A whole range of Benefit products...

As you may know, I moved to Durban last year. I had to find a new dentist, doctor, dermatologist, the works! But nothing scared me as much as finding a new person to 'do' my brows. By 'do' I mean threading (I am not a plucker) and the occasional tint.

Disaster struck... I had found someone I was happy with, a short man with slightly smelly breath - despite the minor case of halitosis he could shape my brows like a queen! Then he moved to Cape Town. Apprehensively, I visited his replacement after he left. I must have had that 'bad feeling' for a reason, she threaded them skew. My one brow had a 'completely' different shape to the other - I was horrified.

I was invited to visit a new brick-and-mortar store at La Lucia mall, solely dedicated to eyebrows! Finally, actual specialists - ones to trust with the delicate balance of my brows!

May I introduce Durban to - The Brow Bar

The Brow Bar opened in June in La Lucia Mall (over the way from Mr Price clothing, upstairs). Following the success of two Brow Bars in Johannesburg, Brow Queen and Lash Expert, Unaiza Moideen was on the quest to expand her services to Durban this June, creating the ultimate "Brows-on-Fleek" experience everywhere she goes!

The Brow Bar is South Africa’s first-ever franchised and patented, no-appointment, Express Brow and Lash bar with a range of services for both men and women. All in the name of better brows!

I had a lovely conversation with Unaiza, who was down from Joburg, where she measured and shaped my brows for me. Luckily my shape isn't too bad, but there is a bit of brow 'training' required for the ideal, even brow. Unaiza suggested I grab some Hi Brow, a serum for brows and lashes formulated with keratin and caffeine to promote thicker, fuller and healthier lashes and brows. It's R600 and should last about 3 months with daily use.

Overall, a great experience and was lovely to meet and chat with Unaiza! Please do check out their website here and go give a store a visit - appointment-free! They are situated at Clearwater Mall (Gauteng), Mall of the South (Gauteng) and La Lucia Mall (KwaZulu-Natal).

Here are some services that they provide:

Lash Perming (R600)
An eyelash perm is a face enhancing beauty treatment designed to give straight lashes an attractive upward curl and extremely curly lashes a reverse perm creating length without the daily need for lash curlers. Anyone with a particular busy schedule will appreciate the low-maintenance nature of lash perming.

Say farewell to thin and poorly maintained eyebrows, and hello to perfectly framed and sculptured brows with Brow Perfect individual eyebrow extensions. This revolutionary new treatment corrects sparse eyebrows, allowing you to achieve the brows you’ve always desired. Brow Perfect Extensions are light and comfortable, do not damage your natural brows, make your eyebrows look fuller and if well maintained they can last up to 10 days! The application is comfortable and relaxing, and you have a whole range of colours to choose from that match your natural eyebrows!

Forget the myths you have heard, threading is most natural, no side effects, non-chemical way of hair removal. Commonly practiced in Eastern countries like Egypt and India, the revolution has reached SA. Threading removes the entire hair follicle, lasting up to six weeks. Simply using a cotton thread, it is the most natural way to take care of your brows as there are no chemicals applied to the skin. Threading is great for people with ‘trouble’ brows and has this amazing ability to be so concise in the hair that it removes. It’s sworn by people who say they can never get their eyebrows even, despite tweezing or waxing.

Lash and Eyebrow Tinting (from R90)
Lash Extensions (from R500)
Henna (from R130)
Permanent Makeup, including Microblading (from R1800)

  1. AAAHHH I'm so keen to see this! I have never found one set person who can do my brows properly. I know they should look like 'sisters, not twins' but looking completely different is another thing entirely!!!!!
    I have already made a note in my diary to give this place a visit next time I'm down that side - or even come that side just for a visit there ;)
