Waxing your brows can seem like an incredibly daunting task. What if you take too much off, what if it hurts, what if...? But, there are a number of benefits to waxing those curly caterpillars. For one, the hair grows back at a slower rate and doesn't become bristly or dark. Secondly, you can easily shape your brows with wax. But, you must be careful to avoid ripping them right off. Waxing may also be painful, but it's over in an instant if you do it correctly.
If you don't trust yourself to get it right, then visit Naked Cherry. With branches in Fourways, Sandton, Bassonia, Parkhurst, Randpark Ridge, Bryanston and Woodmead, Naked Cherry is super accessible. These wax specialists are also well adept at dealing with sensitive areas of the body, including the brows. Their brow treatment costs only *R90 for both ladies and men, using low temperature aromatherapy-based hot wax. This wax is guaranteed not to pull at your skin, clinging only to those fuzzy stragglers. Book your appointment here.

Tweezing is one of the most popular methods of taming those brows. We all have a pair of handy tweezers somewhere in our bathrooms, so get yours out and start plucking away. The trick to tweezing without causing yourself excessive pain is to go straight for the root of the hair. This way, you also slow down re-growth. Shaping your brows is also relatively simple. Thick brows are envied world over, so keep them full, but maintained. Follow the ridge of your brow bone to get a simple, clean shape.
You don't want to over pluck because this can lead to serious trouble, so rather aim to snatch up any outlying hairs and leave the rest to carry on as they are. However, if you would rather have a professional do it for you, then there is no better place to visit than Just Browzing. Recognising that your brows are probably one of the most important features of your face, Just Browzing will help you create the ideal shaped eyebrows to get that lifted look. They are very gentle and caring, so book an appointment ASAP.

Finally, we have threading, both an ancient technique and one of the newly embraced methods of removing facial hair in South Africa. If you have never had your brows threaded before, expect a little pain but great rewards. Many liken the pain to having multiple hairs tweezed at once, but it's all together not that bad. Basically all it is, is a little pulling of the skin in opposite directions to allow for the thread to cut through the hair. This takes a lot of skill and practice, so rather find a reputable therapist to thread your brows than go DIY.
Sorbet offers brow threading and tinting at their various salons across Joburg. These trained beauty experts will have you looking fabulous in no time, so treat yourself to a little pampering next pay day.

I have to admit that Sorbet Drybar is one of my guilty pleasures. I first stumbled across the concept when I was having my nails done and overheard two ladies raving about the blow-dry they regularly receive before functions or special occasions. In fact, one of them has a standing appointment at her local Sorbet Drybar on a Friday so that her hair is “weekend-ready” within 45 minutes.
In brief, a “Drybar” offers just that – a blow-dry. They do not cut or colour hair, but various hair treatments are available on request. Appointments are booked on the hour, every hour, meaning that there is absolutely no waiting for your stylist to finish with her current client and a rather delicious hair wash and massage is included in the price.
You will also notice that they have a menu of blow-dry options on the salon wall – meaning that you can ask for a particular style, or just explain what you would like done if your requested style isn’t one of the regular options. 50 minutes later, you will walk out with perfectly coiffed hair, ready to face the world!
I would imagine that the prices are fairly standard – I pay *R185 per blow-dry – at least R100 less than I normally pay when having my hair cut and coloured at my favourite hair salon. If I’m honest, the blow-dries I receive at Sorbet Drybar are actually better than ones I have received from really good hairdressers over the years. I have asked for everything from beachy waves to straight hair with a bit of movement at the ends – and I have never once been disappointed.
I have also regularly opted for The Sorbet Squeeze – a 10-minute scalp massage that is added to your hair wash for an additional *R60. I highly recommend this for those of you feeling stressed or frazzled - it honestly works miracles and is worth every cent.
Other add-ons include the Sorbet Swirl (scalp treatment and blowout), Sorbet Scoop (customised hair treatment), Keratin Smoothing Treatment (lasts for 3 months and reduces frizz), Olaplex (repairs broken hair), Split-Ender Treatment, and Hair Botox. You’ll find the relevant prices here – be sure to book in advance.
Various Drybars also offer threading, facial waxing, eyelash extensions and tinting – so keep an eye out for those services. Plus, most of the Drybars I have been to have nail technicians who can do your nails while you are having your blow-dry. As you may know, I am very loyal to my nail technician in Hyde Park, but do find this service invaluable when I have a broken nail!
The bottom line is this: I highly recommend giving your nearest Drybar a test-drive (if you haven’t already). It is an efficient, luxurious and relatively inexpensive way to look your best before a function, dinner, or weekend that is filled with social get-together's. Is it an indulgence? Yes – and one I plan to keep on enjoying when my budget allows!
