Eyebrow Threading Tips from Hibba NYC


Whether you've tried eyebrow threading before or you've been waiting to try it, you have to check out Hibba NYC.  Run by Hibba Kapil, the cozy Soho salon is filled with the sounds of traditional Indian music and adorned with wooden furniture, colorful cushions, and statues of the half-man/half-elephant Hindi god Ganesh (remover of obstacles).

Growing up in India, Hibba learned the art of threading at 13. She would thread for her family and friends and soon became the go-to-girl in her small town. Hibba moved to the U.S. at 17 and soon after put herself through college at New York City's Baruch College. With a degree in finance, she realized her dream to open her own salon in 2010.

Hibba's goal is to offer the best and the most natural services in hair removal. Reducing our carbon footprint is a high priority for Hibba. She also understands the value of great customer service and community.

During my appointment with the eyebrow wiz, she quickly shaped my eyebrows and somehow made them look fuller.  Because my hair type is "curly," she applied a dab of wax to keep them in place. For pricing and appointments go to Hibba NYC's website

“I've always had a passion for eyebrows. This passion has remained with me throughout my life and led me to become a hair-removal and brow sculpting expert," Hibba says.  

"I always strive to make each day of service better and to make each brow as perfect as the face it belongs to.”

Here are Hibba's eyebrow threading shaping tips:


1) The hottest trend right now is the full, bushy look. But it has to suit your facial features and bone structure, and fit your personality. 

2) It's recommended you get your brows cleaned up every two-and-a-half weeks. For shaping, allow about four weeks between appointments.

3) Threading is dermatologist recommended for sensitive skin, which applies to almost everyone in the eyelid zone. It gently removes the unwanted hair without effecting the skin. Threading is also known for precision when it comes to shaping. From a browologist's point of view, it gives her room to create fine arches by picking one hair out if need be or a whole line depending on our goal.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . 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 the Big Apple, 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

Probiotics Do a Body Good: Vitamin Shoppe Tips to Trust Your Gut

We asked the Vitamin Shoppe's on-staff nutritionist Brian Tanzer for the skinny on the benefits of these good bacteria that help keep your gut healthy. Why you need probiotics? I f you eat a lot of processed foods, excess sugar or refined carbohydrates, the bacteria in your digestive tract might have a hard time staying in balance.  And probiotics   inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. Tip:   You can find them in  capsule , tablet,  powder  and  chewable  forms. When you should take a probiotic?
