Brow Power-The Perfect Arch

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

One of my favorite things to do in the salon is brow waxing and shaping. I love the instant transormation it brings and the way it opens up a woman’s eyes. It’s a mystery to me why some women refuse to even try it. If they only knew how much better they could look in just 10 minutes!

For those of you who do maintain your brows, do you have the perfect arch? My friend Boom Boom ( in NYC shares a quick and easy way to figure out if you do. “The best brows have a slight arch, to find, hold a brush parallel to the outside edge of the colored part of the eye (the iris), she says. Where the brush meets the brow is where the highest part of the arch should be.” Tip: Brush brows up with a clean mascara wand, brow brush or toothbrush, it gives a clearer picture of the situation! Leave no stragglers behind!
I’m also a big fan of brow powder. In fact, I never leave the house without a quick application of Brow Boostier powder (Retail Price: $20.00, including brush.) It’s easier to do than you think and it really helps to frame your face and make the eyes pop!

Malynda Vigliotti doing brows picture

Malynda Vigliotti, a/k/a Boom Boom, is the owner of Boom Boom Brow Bar in New York City’s West Village. Malynda is a self-proclaimed eyebrow queen and is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology. Our interview here covers her philosophy on beauty and power, and a few good tips for the diva in all of us.

Q: Your push-up highlighting brow pencil just won “Best Brow Color” for Shecky’s 2010 Beauty Awards. What’s another must- have Boom Boom retail item that’s hot right now?

A: The Boom Boom Brow Boostier! With all these gorgeous big bold brows, Boom Boom Boostier beefs up brows while looking natural. It’s also super easy to work with.

Q: What do you recommend for women with scar tissue on one eyebrow? How can they achieve a uniform look to both arches? Do you use powders or pencils to fill in sparse areas?

A: Each brow is different and many people have scars either in the brow or close to. When this is the case, you have to be careful and come up with a plan.

More times than not, you do the good brow first and then try to do the same with the other pretending the scar is not there so you can get a uniform look. Then you fill them in with Boom Boom’s Brow Boostier. It takes 2 sec’s!

Q: As a well-known brow sculptor in New York City, which celebrities’ brows are among your favorites these days?

A: Boom Boom is all about brow power to the people. The concept is that every woman should be able to have gorgeous brows for $20. Of course, I am obsessed with celebs, but I am not one, and I actually don’t even know any. We are the people and as you can see reality is the new celebrity, hence, Snooki!

Q: To Tweeze or Not to Tweeze? Do you prefer tweezing over waxing?

A: Love to wax! You get a gorgeous clean line because it gets all the little hairs. But I will say I do use Flash Wax for sensitive skin. It is a lavender based wax that is super gentle and I feel like it doesn’t hurt as much. Again, I say WAX- but seriously make sure you tweeze if someone is on Accutane, Retin A, etc.

Q: How can a girl live with a bad brow service until they grow back in?

A: Push up brow to the rescue. You can conceal the stragglers so you do not feel like a mess in the meantime. But pleeeease do not touch them. Be hopeful and go somewhere good in a month. You will be ok….promise. PS – I am sorry you had a bad experience!
