Where To Score Your Best Brows EVER In L.A.

PHOTOGRAPHED BY LAUREN PERLSTEIN.
We’re all hooked on eyebrows, and judging by our ongoing obsession with bushy-browed celebrities like Cara Delevingne and Lily Collins, the mania isn’t going away anytime soon. Thankfully, there are countless ways to achieve a flawless pair of face-framing arches. Particular about precisely groomed brows? Opt for threading, a popular method that many believe first originated in India. Or perhaps you’re the victim of over-plucking in the '90s and have been longing for a fuller set. In that case, you may want to consider extensions, the latest brow trend to gain major traction.

In our quest to achieve the best brows, we’ve researched all the experts who can wax, thread, pluck, and even tattoo your arches to perfection. Ready for a transformation? Keep reading for our ultimate Los Angeles guide to brows, including 20 studios and in-demand artists that you’ll want to call up immediately.

Brow Extensions

Master Lash By Charity

Not many aestheticians in Los Angeles specialize in brow extensions, but Charity Engebretsen is one of the few pioneering the service from her Santa Monica studio. The technique involves using semi-permanent adhesive to attach individual human hairs (she stocks a variety of colors, textures, and lengths) to your existing brow hairs. The result? An enviably full arch.
Price:
$200

Master Lash by Charity, 5th Montana Avenue (at 5th Street); 858-888-3963.

Nine Zero One Salon
Another spot in town that offers brow extensions? Cult favorite Nine Zero One Salon, where makeup artist and brow expert Mae Manalo will carefully build out your brow using small synthetic hairs. According to Mae, since your brows attract oil and debris, extensions may only last up to a week, but they’re ideal for special events when you want a thicker, more defined arch.
Price: Starts at $100.

Nine Zero One Salon, 8469 Melrose Place (near North La Cienega Boulevard); 310-855-9099.
