Best Place to Get Your Eyebrows Shaped in NYC




If you want perfectly shaped eyebrows without the hassle of waxing or tweezing, it's time to visit Shobha


The New York City salon has locations in Soho (594 Broadway, 212.931.8363), midtown  (41 E. 57th Street, 212.223.2872), and Columbus Circle (3 Columbus Circle, 212.977.7771). 


The downtown location's India-inspired interior is bathed in warm hues of orange, red, and gold.  You'll recline in a barber's chair while a Shobha specialist shapes your brows specifically to frame your face.
The sewing thread pinches a little, but that mild discomfort is a small price to pay for beautiful brows.  Shobha's technicians are experts at the brow grooming technique that's been practiced by women in India for generations.
During a visit with Shobha's resident hair removal guru Anjali, she told me I have an oval face shape (the most coveted facial shape by the way). Based on that angular shape, I should always ask for more rounded and soft brows.  Conversely, the more rounded your face is, the more arched and angular your brow shape should be.
You'll pay $20 for a 10-minute threading session.  I know that sounds a bit pricey when you can get your brows waxed or threaded at most nail salons in the city for $7.  Anjali explains, however, that threading is just the technique and Shobha's staff are experts at eyebrow shaping.
Everything She Wants Tip: Try sugaring, a natural alternative to waxing. But be cautious if you have sensitive skin (I found out the hard way). Shobha also has a product line including Rosewater Toner Mist, Shobha Brow Pencil in Earth and Sand, and Rosewater Freshening ClothsAppointments can be scheduled over the phone or online.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green
