NEW! 2011 PICK
New York City: Brows
Elke Von Freudenberg Salon
1140 Broadway, Suite 906
InStyle Deal: $52-$36
Aesthetician Elke Von Freudenberg has a wide, loft-like space for clients to consider services like hair removal. But her brow services left us loyal: She tweezes (or waxes, depending on preference) so they remain full, yet well-shaped – the perfect frames for our eyes. What’s more, the silhouette seemed to last weeks, making it easy for us to maintain them ourselves in the days to follow.
I’m always amazed at how long most clients wait before coming in to see me for a brow shaping. Especially if it’s for the first time. And I don’t mean days.. I mean months. Longest I’ve heard? Six months.
Depending on how fast your brows grow, I would say anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks is a good time frame. Yes, I can do more when there’s more hair, but keep in mind, that the longer the wait, the more hair that needs to be tweezed in places where it’s not even needed (i.e. between the brows, above, or far below the brow line).. so it only means that you’re walking around with iffy brows that much longer.
So don’t feel you need to grow in your eyebrows for 2-3 months before you make that appointment. 2-3 weeks is usually enough to reshape or fix a brow. If you’re looking to to grow very thin eyebrows thicker, then give it a month.

Brow Tip: It’s only the hairs that are closest to the brow line that are going to actually change to resize the brow. Everything else will most likely get tweezed/waxed away.
The Model Eyebrow™ Service offers a precise eyebrow shaping every time with tweezing. With a bi-coastal clientele, Elke travels to Los Angeles and New York to maintain her private celebrity and model clientele’s eyebrows. And with rave reviews already on CitySearch.com and Yelp.com, people have come in as far as San Francisco, Singapore, Chicago, and Connecticut get Elke’s Signature Service.
