7 nyfw s/s 2015 brow trends

as nyfw comes to a close in nyc we couldn’t not take note of the brows gracing the spring/summer 2015 runways.  lots of designers are keeping brows big, neat & natural like kate spadeoscar de la renta, nanette lapore & carolina herrera are romanticizing brows with soft arches.

then there are those that have strayed from the norm & are taking risks- & we’re admittedly loving their bold choices.


rodarte, perhaps the riskiest of the bunch has throw it back to the ‘90s & rocks the runway with ‘faux’ pierced brows. we love this non-permanent adorning option (the rings aren’t pierced but rather glued on) for adding just the right amount of edge to your look.


next, we have alexander wang who is lightening the whole face up with lighter brows perfect for a whimsical spring/summer look.


quite the opposite of wang is triya who rocked big blurry brows. perhaps best suited for a night time look.


everyone’s talking about dkny’s baby hair look but we’re in love with the big & wild brows.


peter som is keeping things light & soft so much so that brows are a close match to each complexion & almost invisible at first glance.


everything about the eyes & brows at thakoon are glossed & squeaky clean. think ’90s hair gel for your brows.


badgley mischka gives a nod to last seasons unicorn hair by bringing pastel brows front & center for spring/summer 2015.

which was your favorite look? would you try any of these fierce looks - maybe even just for a day?

"hey, what are we doing with our pubic hair right now, ladies?"


yep the title of this post is pretty much daily chatter amongst our team.
when the lovely folks at byrdie asked us the "truth about bikini lines: what is everyone really doing down there" we (were flattered &) answered:

the professional take
when speaking with estheticians at Shobha … [a] popular waxing [destination] known for their bikini expertise—all maintained that the brazilian remains the most requested style today. the popularity may be practically motivated. “seasonally, by removing everything, you can ensure a carefree summer, avoiding bathing suit ‘flyaways.’ also, in terms of aesthetic appeal, if you are self-conscious about your mid-section or hips, removing all of the hair tends to draw attention away from that area when you’re in the buff—so that you take in the ‘whole picture’ instead of having your eye drawn to that area due to the usually darker hair in the nether region,” says jennifer pesce, Shobha’s Brand Director. .. when quizzed about the possible resurgence of an all-natural trend, our experts weren’t convinced. “in our eyes, it’s a mini movement—there are some who will explore this trend, but since this trend isn’t one that the outer world sees very often, our clients tend to stick with their own preferences,” pesce says.”

another reason to love your Shobha Brow Pencil

it’s mid-august already. how the heck did that happen??? you’ve probably been working on your summer glow (responsibly with great sunscreen obvi). for our blondies out there you’ve probably noticed that as your skin tans & your hair lightens your brows have probably lightened up too. your brows might even blend into your tan!

while your surfer-girl look lends to a minimalist approach to summer makeup but please, please don’t forget your brows. even if you don’t wear anything else on your face - don’t skip the brow pencil. a darker brow will give you a more youthful look & who doesn’t want that? soak up the last weeks of summer equipped with perfect brows that make you look & feel your best (& maybe even younger). grab our pencil tips here & here for the best way to diy them at home.
