15 Of The Best Eyebrow Studios In Auckland

They say eyes are the windows to our souls—so it’s only fitting that our peepers are decked out for the occasion. From tints to shaping, down to tackling pesky stray hairs, there’s a lot of work that goes into ensuring these tiny tresses are in top condition. 

Thankfully for us Aucklanders, we can leave the taming up to the brow extraordinaires in our city. Where does one find them, you ask? Look no further. We’ve plucked, tinted and shaped our way to bring you the very best brow bars in Auckland. 

Society

Grey Lynn

Grey Lynn’s best-kept beauty secret is none other than Society. Between hair, nails, waxing and skin treatments (to name a mere few), lashes and eyebrows are also serious business at this covetable salon. From tints to shaping, Society ticks all the brow boxes—and even goes the extra mile with lash extensions, tints, and the ever-luxurious Yumi lash lift. Hollywood eyes, here you come. 

Bare Waxing

Albany, Glen Innes, Grey Lynn, Belmont

While removing hair might be in Bare Waxing’s name, rest assured that they’re also one of the best tressers of hair on and around your eyes. One look at their brows treatment menu, and you’ll be sold.

There’s brow tinting, henna colours, shapes, laminations and options that combine all three, alongside their lash counterparts. And if you need the follicles anywhere else on your body tended to (well, removed) a full raft of waxing treatments are yours to choose from, alongside spray tans and facials.

Every beauty treatment is made better with a massage, and brow shapes are no exception to this. Case in point, Sydney Beauty Salon’s Brow Shape & Tint or Henna with Massage treatment, which is rounded off with a glorious scalp ritual.

Back to the brows, keeping in theme with this salon’s fit-out, you’ll find a luxe line-up of Brow Laminations, dyes, shapes and tidies on the menu, as well as the Eye Trio which bundles up all three (also complete with said scalp massage). Regular beauty programming has never been more chic.

Saint Beauty

St Heliers

We love them for some of Auckland’s best massages and facials, their ultra-pretty decor and warm service, but here’s another reason to obsess over Saint Beauty: their lash and brow treatments.

From simple brow tidies to a full lamination or hybrid stain, they do it all. Good things come in three at Saint Beauty (case in point, their iconic Saint Trio Facial) so we think booking in the Eye Trio (Lash tint, brow tint, and tidy) is really a no-brainer for Hollywood eyes.

Index Studio

Grey Lynn

Book yourself in Signature Bespoke Brows at Index Studio and prance on out with voluminous, perfectly shaped brows that could quite simply cut a bish. In this industrial sleek studio, your preening starts with an in-depth consultation to plan your perfect set of brows—colours, shape and all.

A brow mapping session later, to ensure the shape is just what you wanted, your brows will be coated gently with wax and a custom tint before being set and you sent on your merry (and very chic) way. For the full, feel-good experience, why not join Index Index Studio Sisterhood to meet other fellow glow-getters and women in the nation?

The Beauty Chambers

Mt Wellington

For brows so good you’ll forget eyebrow pencils exist, head to The Beauty Chambers. Here you’ll find some of the best and most extensive eyebrow treatments in Auckland—as well as some seriously pretty decor.

You and your brows will be utterly spoilt for choice between their henna brow tint, classic tint or shapes, and styling treatments which include shaping, hair removal, tinting and application of PONi Cosmetics Brow Pop, Brow Gel & Brow Magic. There’s also the Feather Touch Semi-Permanent Brows (aka eyebrow tattooing) if you really want to rev up the glam long-term.

Brows need a hefty touch of TLC? Brow Reconditioning is Lash Noir's programme to help hit reset towards fuller, fluffier brows (especially you victims of the early 2000’s eyebrow aesthetics). Expect a series of professional brow shapes with the Lash Noir team plus a special brow serum to kickstart the growth.

Day-to-day lash and brow preening is sorted, with precision tints, shaping and tidying available from their City Works Depot spot Monday to Saturday. Want something a little more hefty? Sister boutique Lash Noir Ink, also in City Works Depot, is your go-to for premium permanent brows: feather touch (light and airy) and ombre mist (a sleek, more intense gradient of pigment).

ForeverShine

Mount Eden

Holistic beauty is ForeverShine’s thing. Expert and TV personality Ronita Sharma is one of the undisputed queens of Auckland’s beauty scene—and look at her lengthy lineup of awards and accolades and you’ll see why.

Alongside wellness and skin treatments, you’ll find all sorts of treatments to show your brows who’s boss. Eyebrow feathering, microblading, threading or waxing (with organic wax even) are all a go at this iconic beauty destination.

Lash Loft

Howick

Don’t be entirely fooled by the name, because Lash Loft caters superbly to eyebrows too—in fact, they’re one of the very best brow bars in Auckland. You’ll find classic quick-fix brow treatments here like tints, shapes or their Brow Works tint and shape combination for the full eyebrow package.

The eyebrow TLC doesn’t stop there—they go the full monty and offer Yumi Brow Lamination treatment (aka Brow Lifting) which increases the volume, definition and length of your brows and includes a free shape and tint. 

Brow Theory

Brow Theory Takapuna

Every brow treatment you can dream of is done—exquisitely, might we add—at Takapuna’s Brow Theory. Henna and Dye colouring, simple tints, brow sculpting or more serious semi-permanent micro-pigmentation, there’s a little something to keep every gaze gorgeous.

Throw in a lash tint, a lip-blush tattoo (coming soon) or perhaps a blow wave at H&Co, the other business in their shared New York-style loft studio, and you’re officially set.

OFF & ON

Whenever hair from the eyebrows down is concerned, OFF&ON are some of the best in the business. Seriously, we can’t think of a more meticulous approach to beauty. Their newly-minted Colour Bar service is a three-pronged ticket to the best colours for your peeps—educated by their fifteen years and growing mastery of all things brows.

There’s The Tint (natural enhancement of your colour), The Stain (to deeply enhance brunette hairs for a long-lasting and voluminous look), and The Henna (to encapsulate the brows with a temporary colour, perfect for all ages).

The result? 135 different colour customisations, none of this ‘blonde or brunette box-ticking.’ Throw in a hand massage while you’re propped up on their industrial-chic barbers' chairs and waiting for the dye to settle in? Pure bliss. And that’s before you’ve seen your new, sleek and refreshed peeps.

Endota Spa

Albany, Mt Eden, Parnell, Ponsonby, Takapuna

Home to Auckland’s most rejuvenating facials, body treatments, and most exquisite line of in-house beauty and wellness products, Endota Spa has another jewel in its crown: world-class brow services. The expert team takes care of all your brow pampering needs, be it a brow tint, shaping or perhaps a lash treatment.

Considering Endota Spa is basically Auckland’s holistic beauty fairy godmother, we think it’d simply be rude to not stay for a little post-pluck facial or manicure. We'd vote for a pedicure at Ponsonby's dwelling—a gorgeous green garden view awaits. With a handful of gorgeous retreats across Auckland as well as Hamilton, Christchurch, Queenstown and Wellington, you’re never far from some quality preening for your peeps.   

East Day Spa

Auckland CBD

As Auckland’s undisputed mecca of pampering, Sky City’s East Day Spa is a treat for your mind, body and brows. Alongside their coveted massages and facials, you’ll find brow tints, waxing and threading gracing their treatment menu.

The must-try brow treatment is none other than their Brow Henna Package, where glow-getters can enjoy 45 minutes of luxurious brow TLC. It includes the full shebang of eyebrow glam, from brow shampooing, a personalised shade from their 12-colour palette, shaping, application and oil moisturising. The result? Impossibly beautiful stained brows that last up to twice as long as your traditional brow tint. 

The Lash Room

Albany, Ponsonby

With locations in both Kingsland and Ponsonby, The Lash Room draws crowds from all over Auckland. And with good reason, their eyelash and eyebrow treatments are simply divine. We’re talking henna-tinted brows that last anywhere between three to six weeks, or a classic brow tint or a brow wax for a short and sweet tidy.

For a full brow re-glam, you’ll want to see in-house brow expert Tammy, who’ll work with you to create a flattering new brow ‘do. 

Auckland Lash And Brows

Albany

As the name suggests, Auckland Lash and Brows are among the best in the brow game. Trust us when we say that the team here work pure brow magic.

They’ll have your eyes looking tip-top with their extensive treatment list, which includes everything from classic waxes and tints to henna tints, right through to microblading. They even take the brow technicalities up a notch and are among some of the only brow bars to offer ombre brows. Told you they were nothing short of magic.
