Brow Boost – New & Improved: June Product Feature 2013

brow boost

Kelli JuneHi! It’s Kelli, bringing you this month’s Product Feature.

At Star Brows we’re all about amazing eyebrow shape and design and most of us, including me, are doing what we can to get them.  I’ve been using Billion Dollar Brows’ Brow Boost for the last six months to help re-grow my poor hacked-off brows and with this product’s help (and the brow magic that comes from the Brow Boss, Linda), my eyebrows are becoming what I’ve always wanted. Now a reformulation of this product boosts brow growth three times more than before!

This new and improved formula will help you get thicker, fuller brows and can be applied to your lashes too. Buy two (one for lashes and one for brows) while they’re our Monthly Feature!

The deep-conditioning treatment is designed to help strengthen and condition thin, over-tweezed brows and weak lashes. It contains three times the amount of Laminaria Digitata and Pelvetia Canaliculata Extracts, two types of seaweed found off the coast of Brittany, France that are clinically proven to help strengthen weakened hair follicles.

In honor of this new product release, we are offering Double Reward points which you can redeem for Enhancements! I don’t know about you, but I am very excited to try this out. 🙂

 

See you at the spa!

Star Brow: Cara Delivingne

Cara DelivingneVogue rates her #17 of 50 top models. Cara Delivingne is also featured on the Style and Culture Facebook page (worth looking at).

Love her long, flat, close to the eye, brow-look. Want it? Use Brow Boost if you are re-growth-challenged, tint them every 3 weeks, and use Brow Gel (both by Billion Dollar Brows) to get the fly-away, natural style.

See you at the spa!

Star Brow of the Week – Lily Collins

 

Actress Lily Jane Collins is 23, was born in Guildford, England, and is the daughter of  musician Phil Collins. I recently saw her in Mirror Mirror with Julia Roberts (which I’d give three  stars).

Lily’s brows, as seen in the movie, were a real distraction for me. I can’t imagine why they’d draw so much attention to one feature and create such a big, dark, bold brow with the natural, youthful makeup she wore.

Oh well, her brows are simply gorgeous here with the perfect makeup and dress. Notice how the head (fan) of the brow is more mid-line than the traditional brow placement above the tear duct? Nice and full, well shaped, but not overdone.

See you at the spa!

LaVaque Professional Artist

Check this out! I’m featured as an Eyebrow Design Professional in the company of some of the best designers and Makeup Artists in the country:

Linda Ruberto is the owner of Star Brows, a solo spa on California’s Central Coast. She has been in practice since 1995. Linda has transformed the look of thousands of clients with her signature eyebrow design approach and has employed and mentored hundreds of beauty professionals.

She has published articles in some of the skincare industry’s premier magazines, and writes a beauty and wellness blog at Starbrows.com.

Her professional credentials include a Certified Massage Practitioner certification from the California Massage Therapy Council and a California State Licensed Esthetician credential. Linda is also a member of Associated Skin Care Professionals and Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals.

Linda’s Philosophy:

I operate from the notion that every woman wants to be treated like a star. Every service I do includes a touch of spa luxury, and every client is a VIP.

The term Beauty Therapist best describes my professional role. Like my mentor, the fabulous late David Starr, I really need to feel and know the heart of each individual woman to bring out her beauty and create the perfect look and experience just for her.

My premier offerings, Couture Eyebrow Design and Heather Gardner jewelry, reflect my belief in luxury, haute couture, and personalized service. Once a woman’s brows are perfect, her makeup is just right, and she’s totally relaxed, slipping on a gorgeous pair of earrings or the perfect necklace helps bring out each woman’s unique beauty.

I’ve made it my personal mission to eradicate the term Anti-Aging from the industry at large. The age-biased beauty propaganda our culture espouses and directs toward women through the media needs to change. Aging is inevitable, aging women are spectacular, and really, isn’t Healthy Aging the desired outcome for us all?

“Many thanks to Juliana and Barry, LaVaque Professional’s owners, for honoring industry artists! I appreciate their receptiveness to those of us who earn our living with their fabulous tools and products. What genius to come up with tweezers that are friendly to the repetitive use issues facing industry professionals.” –Linda Ruberto

Women’s History Month Makeover 2012

First African American members of the Women's Army Corps

Update: We found our winner! Thanks to Robin Patchett, Gail Wood Case has been chosen. She will be coming in today for her Makeover (4/12/12). We can’t wait to treat her, and share the results with you.

I am collaborating with a new friend and fellow Grover Beach business owner, Sarah Crosby, from Grateful Threads Fashion Exchange. We are searching to treat one deserving woman, who otherwise couldn’t – or wouldn’t – to a new head-to-toe look! The launch is on International Women’s Day 2012!

Last year (2011) we celebrated IWD at Star Brows with a rally at the Arroyo Grande Bridge. We enjoyed our speaker, Marriage and Family Therapist Kathy Bornino’s wisdom and Qigong excercise. We felt connected to women all over the world, who were also meeting in solidarity with women world-wide, at bridges in their home towns.

This year we’re expanding our celebration! March is Women’s History Month in the U.S.A. The culmination of the festivities will be selecting a Makeover Winner!

So the search is on. Do you know someone who needs a little boost? Here’s what we’re planning for the lucky winner: First we’ll do Eyebrow Couture, then a Customized Facial, and finally Special Occasion Makeup! Then we’ll walk down the street to 957 West Grand to meet up with Sarah  from Grateful Threads. She’ll be putting together the perfect outfit: clothing, shoes, and accessories, to make the look complete!

We look forward to hearing some of the stories about women from our own community, who despite hardship are trying to make their lives better and use their talents and who could use a little glamour to cheer and encourage them.

Entry Details

Step 1: Submit one paragraph to Star Brows email about a woman you know who deserves a makeover.  When sharing the woman’s story, please don’t share personal details. None of your information will be used publicly without your permission.

Step 2: You will be contacted to confirm your entry.

Step 3: On March 31st a winner will be chosen by Star Brows and Grateful Threads. If the individual you nominated wins, you will be contacted and asked to  forward her information to us so we can contact her to set up an appointment for the Makeover!

Winner Agreement Guidelines

Not on a medication which thins your skin and don’t have any other health condition that would be affected by waxing.

Available from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm  sometime between April 2nd and April 14th for an appointment of approximately four hours.

Transportation will be needed to and from the spa, and childcare (if applicable) must be provided for independently.

Photos of the makeover process and finished look will be displayed on the Web at businesses’ discretion.

We can’t wait to hear the stories and choose one very special woman to honor!

See you at the spa!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Star Brow – Vanessa Hudgen

Star Brow of the Week is Vanessa Hudgen, and not just because she wears Heather Gardner ALL the time!

Her eyebrows are perfection. Notice the fan at the head of the brow? It’s soft, irregular, and gauzy. The color, just a hint lighter than her hair. The arch a long, gradual taper.

This look is dreamy, natural, and very boho-chic.

Love to see you at the spa Vanessa!
