I should begin this review with a disclaimer: I am a beauty editor by trade, and therefore have the extreme fortune of being able to go to just about any spa/salon I want and review it for my column.
So, it's super rare for me to go ANYWHERE more than once. And this goes for everything from my hair to my waxing to my facials.
However, I've been getting my brows shaped and tinted by Amelia at Glamour by Js every three weeks for about three months now...and I have no plans on going anywhere else any time soon.
Why? Well, Amelia is amazing. My hair is very tightly curly - and yet fine baby hairs - so difficult to do evenly and fully. She intricately designs, and shapes, one tweezed hair at a time, until her vision is complete. She trims, she works on you a very long time - this is not one of those 20-minute joints - all my visits to Amelia are around 25-35 minutes...and she does an amazing job. My Bikini & brows are evenly shaped, and grow evenly...something I couldn't say at some of the city's priciest, most exclusive salons. And her tinting is the perfect shade for me. I just slap it on before I start my Brazilian wax and by the time she finishes the color is done.
What I also love is that she's at an extremely affordable price point - making her an obvious choice over city counterpoints. And she has a frequent user point system that rewards her loyal customers - which I hear is a growing bounty!
Def. visit Amelia - and tell her Mikaella sent you!
