    Ten-Second Takeaway

    Eyebrows maketh the face – you may or may not swear by this saying that we just made up, but it’s the truth. That’s why a number of individuals take time out to shape, thread and make their brows look perfectly shaped.

    We spoke to a few Mumbaikars on where they visit to get their eyebrows shaped. Here’s what they had to say.

    Karrishma Modhy

    Lin Beauty Parlour

    Vile Parle West, Mumbai

    This Juhu resident visits Lin’s Beauty Parlour in Juhu. A popular spot in the western suburbs, Lin’s is slightly pricey, but has a number of offers including nail art, eyebrows, hair treatment, etc. “I don’t go there all the time, but make it a point to go for special occasions such as a wedding, as the prices can get a bit steep”, she said.

    Sugham Singal

    At Home Diva

    Available Online

    For this resident in Marol, Andheri East, visiting a spa is so passé. Instead, Sugham uses an app called  ‘At Home Diva’ that is available as a mobile phone app on both Android and Apple devices. “They have services all across the country. All you need to do is book an appointment a week in advance and over a period of time, the algorithm of the app recognizes what you usually choose and accordingly, gives you various discounts to choose from,” she says.
