An eyebrow specialist is like a great hairdresser; once you’ve found the one, you’re done searching. You immediately delete your brow-dedicated Pinterest and glance affectionately at your brows in the mirror. It’s a serious quest.
You love your brows, Melbourne girls. So much so we were inundated with recommendations and praise for your fave eyebrow experts and salons. You've recommended your own personal brow specialist out of the goodness of your heart – even if it means the next time you book an appointment there’ll be a three-month waiting list.
So we’ve put together a Readers Choice list of the best eyebrow artists/salons in Melbourne – as voted by you!
#1 - Victoria Jade at Brows, Skin, Makeup | Prahran
It seems the most-popular girl on the block is Victoria Jade of Brows, Skin, Makeup in Prahran. Touted for her definition and shaping, this brow babe is legit. On another note, she’s a brilliant make-up artist for events. Victoria Jade has it all!
#2 – Gry Tømte at HUD Skin and Body | St Kilda
When dedicated client of 10 years emails us to recommend Gry Tømte of HUD Skin and Body, we take it very seriously. If you go to see Gry, you’ll never again have to wonder if you have the best eyebrows in the room… because duh… you do, babe!
#3 – Fiona Lee at Omskin | Port Melbourne
You’ll have the strongest eyebrow game in the bizness when you check out Fiona Lee of Omskin, Port Melbourne. Get a full-blown re-sculpt or a nifty tidy and tint, and walk away with others delivering you serious #eyebrowenvy. It’s a real thing.
#4 – Suzie McIntosh at Lash & Brow Boutique | Beaumaris
Specialising in Cosmetic Tattooing and Brow Styling, Suzie of Lash & Brow Boutique knows her way around a brow or two. She has you covered for temporary and permanent brow options, and according to our readers she’s on fleek.
#5 – Michael at The Original House of Wax | Reservoir
We’ve been told Michael of The Original House of Wax, Reservoir, believes that eyebrows hold the key to the perfect face shape - and he doesn’t settle for anything less than perfect, darling! A clientele strongly based off ‘word-of-mouth’ is always a good sign.
#6 – Angela at Brows and Beyond | South Yarra
As soon as you step foot in the door of Brows and Beyond, South Yarra, the experience is nothing short of amazing according to Angela’s vast clientele. Specialising in HD brows (a high-end technique originating in the UK), Angela creates bespoke shapes for girls with even the sparsest brows.
#7 – Joanna at Glamour Queen | Collingwood
Joanna of Glamour Queen, Collingwood, opts for a different technique in her brow-filled world. Only plucking – no waxing! That type of precision is why her clients are showing off some of the best shaping we’ve seen in a long time. If you’re a sensitive skin gal, this is the choice for you.
#8 – Paint N’ Powder | Melbourne
If you’re out and about in the CBD and need a tidy up, head over to Paint n’ Powder in the Royal Arcade. Owned and operated for nearly 50 years by the Spielvogel family, this beauty salon shapes brows like a boss. Highly skilled, efficient and super friendly.
#9 – Posh Pouts Boutique | Elsternwick
Don’t let the name deceive you; Posh Pouts Boutique shapes a mean brow. I’m talking an arch that’s so subtle, yet deviously bold, you won’t know what hit you. They’ve just recently moved from Oakleigh to a fab new location in Elsternwick, so pop this one on your list if you're a local.
#10 – Brazilica | Brunswick, Port Melbourne & Collingwood
Brazilica sets a great standard in eyebrow waxing across three fantastic salons in Melbourne. They know just how to tame that devious arch hair that’s been driving you crazy for weeks. Check them out!
#11 – Lash & Brow Boudoir | Richmond, Prahran
Two very different vibes at Lash & Brow Boudoir, depending on which one you choose. Prahran is sleek and monochrome, with lots of white and flashy silver. Richmond is exposed brick, warm and cosy. Both do excellent brow threading, microblading and lash extensions. The staff are lovely too, which always helps. Highly recommend.
