Bobs & brows: A match made in heaven
Women as a whole are really embracing short hair right now, and we LOVE it! And hairdressers love it! Lo and behold, a chance to really flex your foundational skills with a classic bob.
The thing about bobs, though, is that they do take a bit of confidence on your client's part and they also put the focus right on her face. It should be as flawless as her cut is, and you are the one who can help guide her in styling—specifically, in brow grooming.
Boom Boom, owner of Boom Boom Brow Bar in NYC, knows brows and knows that the short cut requires extra attention to the face its framing. She cites actress Lucy Hale as an example; her dark bob (typically styled flawlessly by Kristin Ess) puts the spotlight on her bold brows.
"Lucy knows what's going on," Boom Boom says. "She has some of the best brows out there. So if you want to give a client a lob, BB [blunt bob], undercut, waved or shaggy bob, make sure to also consult them on pumping up their brows."
Brow tips from Boom Boom
- Grab a professional wax to shape and polish eyebrows.
- If the brows are a bit sparse, recommend a growth serum to be applied daily to the brow bone, concentrating on sparse spots and areas that need growth.
- Choose a brow tint one shade darker than the natural haircolor (or colored haircolor, if applicable). This makes eyebrows look thicker and bolder. The semi-permanent tint will gracefully wear away and add definition by coloring brow hair as well as small hairs that are usually invisible.
