London, Singapore, New York, Shanghai and now Hong Kong! This concept store specialises in brow and lash grooming and is now in the heart of Central. Whether you have more eyebrows than most or you’re a little brow-challenged, you’re sure to find a treatment here that will leave you looking gorgeous. All therapists have been fully trained at their own Browhaus School and have perfected the techniques of threading, tweezing, lash extensions and brow colouring. A treatment you’ll only find at Browhaus is their eyebrow resurrection where they create semi-permanent fuller eyebrows. So even when you’re sweaty and red in the face from chasing around your toddler and doing the million other things you do in the day, at least you’ll have perfectly shaped brows.
