BROWmance 101 by Pretty Looks

What's the first thing you notice when you look at these 4 girls?
Yes, I know they're celebrities.
And yes, they're hot, pretty & sexy alright!
But let's pause for a second & imagine them without getting dolled up 24/7.
Impossible, you say?
With Pretty Looks, waking up with make up is effortless!
Trust me, the moment you wake up, you'll stare at the mirror & whisper:
"Damn, I never knew I can still look this good early in the morning?!"

And this is exactly the feeling I'm excited to find out!
Believe me, I am as curious as you my dearest readers.
So let me share with you my BROWmance 101 experience:
1) Arrival at Pretty Looks Ortigas Branch
Have a flexible schedule. Waiting time may take 30-45mins. so try to be patient. While waiting, the brow master already dabs anesthesia to the client's brows to lessen treatment process and waiting time. Treatment will start immediately after solution is fully absorbed.
2) Fill up the Data Card 
Register while waiting. Fill up your personal information sheet which serves as your database past & future sessions availed. Get the first dibs on their promos & events too with this ticket!
3) Take a BROW SELFIE 
Say goodbye to sparse brows. Oh, don't be shy now! Go ahead and take a brow selfie. You'll appreciate it more when you have a snapshot of your before and after treatment look. 
4) Observe happy clients come & go 
Wait for your turn now. Brows may take time to be drawn based on the customer's face and preference. Of course, everyone wants the perfect brow shape before it is permanently tattooed. So take all the time you need until you agree with the brow expert that it's the best brow shape for you. Yes, patience is indeed a virtue here at Pretty Looks because they aim to see their clients leave with a smile on their face, with a brow screaming confidence and lips that spell sexiness.

5) Brow Evaluation & Treatment Session
Make yourself comfortable. Pretty Looks treatment room doesn't seem scary at all. Brow inks, lip tints, cotton swabs were all neatly placed on the aesthetician's cart for easier accessibility.
6) Drawing & Re-shaping of Brows
Choose desired brow shape. Brows frame the face. Yes, it may be your best or worst accessory! So don't be afraid to request several shapes to be drawn on your face so you can visualize your final look. Remember you are here to look good & feel good so choose wisely!

7) Enjoy the Results!
Notice the difference. Make sure you make a side by side comparison so you can fully appreciate the Pretty Looks Effect! Now you know why I'm sharing with you my BROWmance story. I just seriously love waking up with make-up. The shade will be quite dark right after treatment, but it will lighten by almost 40% after 3-5 days, making it look more natural. 
Cheers to "Perfect brows because your personality isn't the first thing people notice."
Oh my sister & I had a great experience here at Pretty Looks. Having an eyebrow makeover was definitely a great decision. The time spent here was definitely worth it. "What about the pain?", you may ask. was bearable! Just a slight tingling effect that anyone can manage. When I saw my perfect brows, I just felt more beautiful, confident and BROW-mantic! Who wouldn't?!

Girls understands what other fellow girls go through. Yes, it's true that most girls can't leave the house without coloring their brows. Yes, I can definitely attest to that! Brows can definitely make or break your look. If you have untidy brows, trust me I know, you'll not look as presentable! With Pretty Looks, say hello to confidence with perfectly shaped eyebrows--enhanced & defined the right way! 

So I want to thank: 

Jana Cabo, my brow aesthetician, who was very patient with me!

Ms. Steffi Blair Ong, Beauty Consultant of Pretty Looks, A woman of substance & beauty!
And of course, Sister Secrets, from whom I've heard of Pretty Looks !
