Welcome to our first blog post. We hope you enjoy.
Your big day is coming and you have started thinking about all of the appointments that you need to start booking, so you look and feel your best on your wedding day. Hair, makeup, nails, lashes, facials and of course your brows. It’s a lot we know, but that being said, you want to feel your best on the day.
So, Where and how do you start? Well, at iBrow we have looked after many brides over the past nine years and we decided to put together a blog post with all the things we have learned along the way in hope to inspire you.
So, how long will it take to get my brows into shape?
Well firstly, you may be really happy with your brows already and are looking to maintain what you have, with just a little extra definition but nothing crazy. You will probably notice a difference after just one appointment. For people who need a little more help it may take a few appointments to get your brows where you want them. This all depends on how full the brows are, sparse areas, or asymmetrical brows. You can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that most people are really happy with their brows after just one visit and the results after 3 visits can be transformative. From our experience most clients start their journey at least 6 months before their wedding however it’s never too late.

Do’s and Dont’s for brows.
- Do make sure to book a consultation and make sure you are happy with the brow expert who is looking after you.
- Do re-book all your appointments with the same brow expert if possible when starting your brow journey
- Do make sure to always tell your brow expert if you are wearing face tan so she can adjust the tint if necessary.
- Always tell your brow expert about your skin journey and any new products you may be using, especially ones with active ingredients such as VIT A /RETINOL/ AHA’S. This is absolutely vital at every single appointment to prevent any reactions on the skin.
- Make sure to be honest at your appointments with your brow expert about how you feel about your brows. For instance, if you felt your tint was too dark/light or the shape was too full/slim. We will always welcome your feedback and this is the best way to make sure you are fully satisfied.
- Do book your brows a week before your wedding day allowing time for the RARE chance you may get a reaction.
- Use a nourishing oil to keep the brows healthy.
- Don’t tweeze the brows at home. It can disrupt the cycles of hair growth or break the hair at the surface if your tweezers are blunt or you tweeze incorrectly. This can ruin a perfectly good brow and its best leaving it to the experts.
- Don’t start any new products without consulting with a skin specialist first and without telling your brow expert.
- Don’t wear tan before you get your brows done as this can cause your brows to stain or go too dark.
- Don’t use any active ingredients a week prior to your brow treatments.
