Anyone can take hair from your Eyebrows by plucking, threading or waxing, but for SHAPE you need an “Eyebrow Agent”, one who specializes in SHAPE. At Petra Alexandra, Inc. the students are known as “Petra Alexandra, Inc. Brow Agents” walk away with the greatest skill a face could ever need.
Our lovely Model Aziza travelled several hours on a bus to get her Eyebrows done.
This is what she had to say (we chose to keep her words unedited):
“Dear Petra Alexandra, Inc. Traveling to New York by myself on Tuesday was a experience of a life time. I must admit at first I was nervous and afraid to travel by myself to somone who I never meet before . When 1 clock came around on that day and I was standing outside your studio the first thing that crossed my mind was how does a studio looklllike a house and I was ready to turn back around and go by home till To wonderful lady open the door for me . You welcomed me with open arms and treated me so well . The bond we build within 5mins of meeting you was behind wonderful . Your are wonderful person with a great sense of humor . I don’t think their is no better make up artist then you . You had transform my eyebrows . My make up was on fire like Alice keys would say This Girl is on Fire . The 5 hour bus ride was worth it. I can’t Thank you enough . You are truly the best . I can’t wait to work with you again. From your Honey Butter!”
Meeting OSAS, a beautiful young woman, actress and the crowned Miss Black USA 2010 in her early to mid twentys who suffers with Alopecia was brought to my home uninvited, as she made her way through the frount door i noticed a weighty painted brow that did not quiet seem like it belonged on her sweet face, that caused me to ask some rather forward questions and to my surprise i would learn of her secret of living with Alopecia. Before she could complete telling me of her anguish over the loss of her hair since her teens she was sitting in my chair getting her eyebrows transformed. i had done many different brows over the years but usually a few strands of hair might be added to those with scantly eyebrows, for Osas it was a Brow Transformation, not only was it a transformation for her that brought her to tears and touched all that was present in the room, but it was the moment that would revolutionize the way i would do eyebrows going forward and would prompt me to venture where i had not considered, yes a new undertaking, i was taken to new heights and the gratification that i got from seeing her cry (tears of joy) inspired me to want to help other women feel this wonderful about looking at themselves in the mirror and experiencing having eyebrows for the first time even if it is only for 5 days at a time, as i have learned from Osas the Brow Implant will last for up to 5 days.
Provoked by Miss JEANENE, her words to me “Miss E you have got to share with others this BROW REPLACEMENT technique, this gift God has blessed you with, this ability…”, i am a little uncomfortable writing exactly what she said without coming across somewhat boastful, so i will simply say that her promptings have opened my eyes to not only building up the confidence of women who suffer with Alopecia but the women and girls who have lost their facial hair as a result of Chemotherapy and for that reason i decided to start this blog which will feature BROWS ONLY.
Thank-you Jeanene and Osas for inspiring me.
