Brow Expert Malynda Vigliotti Says: Go Bold, Baby!

Have you seen them yet? The big bold brows from the fall runway shows? They are GORG!  Right up my alley – I don’t believe in thin women or thin brows! A bold brow can literally transform a person’s face and be the perfect seasonal bang. To tell you the truth, most people overthink brows, and that’s where they get in trouble: a little situation I call anorexic brows. Don’t overwax or overtweeze! Cleaning up strays, balancing the arch and a little brow powder is all it takes to have bold beautiful brows. Why powder? Because it’s more natural looking than a dark pencil, and let’s face the facts, many people have bare spots, imperfections and lack of growth, and powder covers all! I like to apply it with an angled, firm brow brush for precision application. For those in a more serious situation needing brow RE-HAB, offer a special brow tint with wax to help camouflage the grow-out phase and give the appearance of thicker, balanced brows.  It's my fave and a total crowd pleaser.  Doing brows is not about following rules, it's about trickin' them out to look proportionate. That is the true name of the brow game!

Malynda Vigliotti (aka Boom Boom) is a self-proclaimed eyebrow queen and apparently the flashiest waxer in town. Educated at The Fashion Institute of Technology, she has worked in the fashion and beauty trenches long enough to be an expert. She does more than 500 brows a month at Boom Boom Brow Bar in NYC, and sees no reason why everyone shouldn’t have thick, gorgeous eyebrows.  Stylists can get to know Boom Boom better on her blog, Facebook and Twitter.
