  1. I learned something new today by watching your video about starting with the brows !!! Thank you for sharing such valuable information. I’ve been struggling with brows for years, and you just made it all make more sense to me now. Your technique also makes getting that symmetry much simpler than what I’ve been doing. You just made my job easier. Thanks again !

  2. Fantastic. It took me a while to boil it down to such a simple and always successful technique. Power to the Brows!

  3. I love what you did and how simple you made it look. My problem is that my hair is a pale ashy blonde. I can’t find a colour that works! Help!

  4. Blondes are an exception when it comes to brow color. In nature, many blondes have eye brows naturally darker than their hair color. To everyone else, this looks natural. However if you put a brow color darker than the hair color on anyone but a blonde, it looks severe and distracting. Because you describe your hair as ‘ashy’, you need a cool blonde color to blend with the temperature of your hair. Go to: and order the cool blonde color. If you don’t have it already, I urge you to use this brush for application: And of course, please follow my brow videos for best results! Thank you.
