6-7 weeks after having my eyebrow embroidery done, I scheduled my first complimentary touch up. A touch up this quick after initial eyebrow embroidery is necessary because everyone’s skin takes to the colour dye at different rates and everyone’s embroidered eyebrows shrinks differently after the initial embroidery settles. The initial eyebrow embroidery acts as a gauge and the first touch up allows Coco to make necessary adjustment to the colour, or shape of the eyebrow embroidery for optimum results. There will be a complimentary second touch up about 6 months after the first touch up for final adjustment as well – I think this is indicative of their dedication to the perfect pair of brows.
When I arrived, Coco gave me a warm smile. She then took a good look at my brows, set me down in front of a mirror and took time to explain the irregularity I observed in my embroidered brows. I was asked to look into the mirror and relax my brows on purpose and then I was asked to look into the mirror as I would normally. We agree that the reason was due to my subconscious habit to raise one brow but as the difference is noticeable, she proceeded to make slight adjustments to balance them out a little more. After we were in agreement on the eyebrow shape and balance, Coco proceeded to work on another round of embroidery for me. The touch up process is very similar to the initial embroidery but faster.
The same recovery process applies, no water contact for 7 days, apply serum 5 times a day. My brows peeled so little it was barely noticeable. The end results imitate the natural behavior of hair so closely, you may not realise that they are embroidered brows. Coco has uploaded some really cool instavids of the end results of her eyebrow embroidery services, one of them is this one, which I believe is one of Cherie’s brows (LOL).
I love the moment when light reflects off my natural brow hair and it looks like they are lush but very natural.
In the course of having my touch up done, I chatted with Coco and asked her some very direct questions – one of them being whether she thought her fees were too expensive. Coco smiled and said no, she doesn’t think her fees were expensive, reason being that the aesthetic feel (美感) and natural-ness (自然度) of eyebrow embroidery done at Browtisan is not something that is easily achieved. Piqued by her claim, I went ahead to investigate on my own using the laziest method – I checked out #eyebrowembroidery on Instagram. Okay, convinced (i’m not going to post photos here, check them out to know why).
My first touch up was actually done in December last year but I waited for a month at least to write this, in order to give a more accurate account of how it went. Here’s how it looks now, very natural and effortless to look well groomed.
