Browhaus, New York City's New Brow Shaping Salon


The holiday season means a busy social calendar. So you have to look good from head to toe, including your eyebrows. Browhaus (56 Spring Street, 212-431-1124), a new brow salon in New York City's trendy Nolita nabe, will hook you up.

I visited the modern, industrial-looking salon for a Browgraphy ($38 -$42), which includes shaping and a color tweak.  Browhaus' styling chairs recline all the way back, so your neck and feet are comfortably supported.  If you've ever had your eyebrows threaded (you have to hold your head back and lift part of your brow so the stylist can reach all angles), you know this makes a big difference.

Then your brows are expertly shaped by threading, tweezing, or a combination of the two.  Once the shaping is done, the stylist blends in matching color to fill in your brows.  Goodbye daily eye pencil; the color tweak lasts for about a month.  My eyebrows haven't looked this good in months.

Browhaus also provides basic brow shaping, brow extensions, and brow lengthening.  Current specials include 50% off first-timers for a Thread/ Tweeze ($10, regularly priced $20) and 40% off a Brow Resurrection, a revolutionary treatment that restores brows from root to tip, with a free tune-up ($900, regularly priced $1550).

Both Browhaus and its sister business, Strip: Ministry of Waxing, were founded by Cynthia Chua in Singapore.  Chua has multiple salons throughout Asia, but this is her first in New York City. Strip is downstairs from Browhaus and offers 50% off first-timers for a Brazilian wax ($27.50, regularly priced $55).  Strip has re-interpreted the Brazilian treatment with techniques that enhance comfort and reduce pain.
