Well-groomed brows are a sure-fire way to earn yourself some compliments. After all, top-tier arches are key to highlighting the shape of your face, so keeping them tidy should be a beauty priority. There’s certainly no shortage of places to keep your brows sharp and shapely in the city. To help you tame them, we’ve rounded up our pick of the best brow services in Hong Kong…
When a company has the word “Brows” in its name, it gives you a good idea about what it specialises in. And while we rely on PrincessBrows x High Society Skin Clinic for a whole host of beauty needs, it’s its Semi Permanent Brows we want to highlight on this occasion. If you’re fed up spending precious moments in the morning drawing on your prized face-framing asset, this is a great option. The salon’s skilled technicians will create ultra-fine delicate hair strokes that blend in with your existing brow and follow its natural shape. Your face shape and colouring will be taken into consideration, before the brow is pre-drawn on. This gives you a chance to check you’re happy before any pigment is applied. Expect the appointment, which costs $7,800 (including one follow-up treatment within three months), to take up to one and a half hours.
