Secrets of the City: Eyebrow threading

8 Apr

I haven’t had a chance to make the trek to Yaletown yet to check out the new Bombay Brow Bar. It’s quite a treat at $23 for the Bombshell Brows that is more than just brow shaping, but also includes: brow gossip, calming forehead and eyebrow indian massage, soothing rosewater eye gel application, brow finishing, a complimentary makeup touch-up upon request and chai to sip on.

For those who just want a quick and dirty threading job, I’d recommend my regular place. All I have to say is:

Walked past the Dona Lucia Esthetics Salon on West Broadway on my way to Cupcakes today.

Saw that there’s a $5 eyebrow threading special – think I might make an appointment after work. Turns out she’s also the “Brazillian” Queen as well!! It’s another open space salon concept (a la Pure Nail Bar and Noir Lash Lounge) with long winding red leather seating.

Address: 2813 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC.

Phone: 604-736-5460 | Email: donalucia@shaw.ca

Hours: Mon to Fri 9 AM – 7 PM | Sat & Sun 10 AM – 6 PM

UPDATE: Think the $5 eyebrow threading is everyday after 3pm? Ladies, if you live on the Westside, it sure beats going all the way to Main or Fraser and 49th!
