Brow Design at The Brow Studio

I've always passed by these brows salons in malls and I never thought I needed to walk in. I have natural thick brows that looked like it can be managed with a little tweezing here and there. I didn't know what came over me but yesterday when I passed by The Brow Studio in SM The Block I thought I should try it. 

I wasn't able to take pictures because my phone's battery was dead. Photos are grabbed from The Brow Studio's FB page. 

The Brow Studio is located at the 5th floor of SM The Block. It's right behind the escalator. 

The lobby/waiting area.

The chandelier adds an elegant feel to the area. The two tiny rooms provide privacy for people who are getting cosmetic tattoos. When I was there a lady was getting an eyebrow tattoo. She said it didn't hurt at all and she was very satisfied with the result.

I love these hot pink chair/beds. This is where I had my eyebrow design which cost me 328 pesos. The threading part hurt a bit but it was tolerable. There was some redness after the treatment but it went away after a while.

So did I love the outcome? 



I can't compare with other brow salons out there because it was my first time to have my eyebrows groomed, but yes I'm very happy with the result! I love that the attendant didn't make it thin even without me telling her to. The brow design treatment lasted for about 10 minutes. I don't think it was worth 328 pesos though, (kuripot lang. haha!) but I believe it's more affordable than other brows salons out there.

Have you tried having your brows groomed by professionals? Share your experience! :)


  1. I love going to Browhaus! It's expensive but I personally think it's worth it. My mom and I share a package so it's cheaper! I highly recommend it :)


    Note: If it's just possible to put NEGATIVE STARS on this review, I would. They DON'T even deserve a one-star rating.

    I availed their IPL package for underarm but I wasn't even able to finish the said package which is composed of 8 treatments. Why? Here's my experience:

    After my last treatment, I was able to observe some red spots but I just ignored it for awhile because this usually happens after the treatment. It's like the skin is reddish in color but it's usually a normal reaction of the skin after the IPL treatment (this also happens after waxing). However, weeks have passed and the skin's discoloration have returned to normal but the red spots turned to Brown spots. I ignored the brown spots for awhile hoping that it would eventually fade, but it didn't. IT TURNED TO DARK BROWN SPOTS. That's the time I was alarmed. Almost 4 weeks of skin recovery, I took a step and used Vitamin E. After a few days, the dark brown spots became smoother (they were very dry before) and the spots became a tad lighter (The color before resembles a dark chocolate. Yes, that's how dark it was) but it's still VERY NOTICEABLE. I've done my research and I was able to verify that those DARK BROWN SPOTS WERE BURNT MARKS FROM THE IPL TREATMENT. Ironically, The Brow Studio even told me that Vitamin E was the culprit why I have dark brown spots on my underarm (I'm a medical course graduate and I specialize in medicine so I'm very knowledgeable what actions should I take and I'm very sure that Vitamin E doesn't darken your skin, particularly armpits.)

    I tried to contact The Brow Studio and they told me to go to their branch which I did and they told me they'll just keep in touch and update me because they'll call the main office first. I waited for days but they never contacted me so I decided to go there again to check if there's an update, but I got nothing. They just told me to wait because the supervisor is not there, (I went there twice but THE SUPERVISOR IS ALWAYS "NOT THERE") they'll still contact the main office, etc.

    To make the long story short, THE BROW STUDIO DON'T CARE IF THEIR CUSTOMER HAD BURNT MARKS AND WASN'T ABLE TO FINISH THE PACKAGE FROM THEIR IPL TREATMENT SINCE THEY ALREADY GOT THE FULL PAYMENT. I tried to text them, go to their office, and text them again but they didn't seem to care. The last time I texted, they DIDN'T EVEN REPLY.

    Would I recommend their treatment?

    NEVER. NOT IN A MILLION YEARS. But if you want your underarms to resemble a Dalmatian, be my guest. And also, their IPL TREATMENT IS NOT EFFECTIVE. The underarm hair is still the same 100% (addition of dark brown spots which are burnt marks).

    P.S. I went to the dermatologist and asked about the burnt marks and they told me I would be needing to undergo some treatments. All in all, I would be spending 10,000 to 18,000 just to have my armpits the way they used to be.
