Bombay Brow Bar - Shangri-La

Thursday, March 1, 2012
My favourite local business recently opened the doors to their new location at 1113 Alberni St, at the Shangri-La.

My favourite local business? Yep. I first came across Bombay Brow Bar just over 2 years ago when they had first put up the signage at their Yaletown location. I had always loved getting my eyebrows threaded, but it was hard to find somewhere that did it and did it well. So, I kind of stalked them (but nothing like THIS...well, ok maybe) and it's been love ever since.

What I love about Bombay Brow Bar is that it's a family business. Sisters Ravy & Amy own the company and are the sweetest girls with a great feel for design aesthetic, and a good dose of business savvy. They're not afraid to take risks, which is huge, especially in Vancouver.

Now, $23 may seem a bit extreme to some people for an eyebrow threading. Well, it's definitely not your typical experience. The brow mavens at Bombay know their stuff. They understand the importance of eyebrows - they frame your face. You also get a free brow makeup application, and the best part? The ever amazing brow massage. I usually pop in to get my brows done on my lunch break, so the massage is a great pick-me-up to beat the afternoon lull.

So pop in to the location nearest you. Now.

I actually got my eyebrows tattooed! I walked by Bombay Brow Bar a while ago in Yaletown and it was so cute inside!

I get the "experience" aspect of it, but the brow massage worth $18 to you? Go to Dona Lucia and get it done for $5 by ladies who are just as good. I can't fathom how people are paying $23 so often that these girls can afford to open three locations. Kudos to them, but there are some seriously under-educated people out there, lol.
