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.

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
