If you ever find yourself flush with cash and in Tribeca, go spend your windfall on some new eyebrows from Jimena Garcia at Tenoverten salon — she’s a bona fide artiste and just the coolest. (This we know from our heady fashion magazine days.) Alas, if your budget, like ours, is more in the range of the tip at a fancy place like that, where do you go in Brooklyn? We want to make a list of reader-recommended eyebrow joints, so we’ll kick things off with a find from Nikki Jo Grossman’s South Brooklyn beauty guide:
I have been a customer of Raheela’s (1117 Coney Island Ave., 718-859-3133) eyebrow threading salon for years now and I am yet to find a comparable salon for shaping, speed and price. At $7 for eyebrows and only $1 more if you choose to do your upper-lip at the same time, you’re not finding a better deal. With upward of 7 women performing threading services simultaneously, the wait is usually pretty short. But if you are like me and demand perfection in an eyebrow then I suggest waiting for Raheela herself. You’ll find that most of the patrons there are doing the same.
Do you have a Raheela-caliber eyebrow ace? Tell us in the comments. Thanks!
