Beauty trends come and go but one thing that has stuck for a while now is eyebrow embroidery.
If you all don’t know what eyebrow embroidery is, it’s a method of temporarily tattooing a pair of eyebrows on. The beautician will usually apply some numbing cream on your brows, then use a fine blade dipped in ink and start stroking away.
This method will create natural-looking brows, which is said to last for about one year. Of course, women who need their eyebrows to be drawn on a daily basis would rather go for this as it seems hassle-free in the long run.
However, just because it is a beauty trend sported by many, doesn’t mean there are no risks involved.
Recently, a lady named Valerie was scrolling through Carousell when she came across a beautician’s impressive profile. She told STOMP that the woman was apparently very experienced and had a certificate from Bangkok.
She then made arrangements and prior to the procedure, the beautician even drew a design for Valerie’s approval. Valerie said, “I was very satisfied and had high expectations.”
The whole process was carried out in the home of the beautician and after everything was done, Valerie found that the job wasn’t done properly.
“The eyebrows were unbalanced and one was way longer than the other.”
However, Valerie was tired from the procedure as her skin felt tender from the sharp blade. So, she went home. As she took a closer look at herself, she was truly upset and dissatisfied at how her eyebrows looked.
She messaged the beautician and the lady promised to fix the longer brow for Valerie. The lady then applied a beige coloured dye to cover up the extended part near the centre of her forehead.
Valerie was supposed to wait for the beige dye to come off on its own but to her demise, her skin was damaged from the ‘treatment’! “She told me to wait for one to two days, to wait for the dye to peel off but it took a week.”
“When it finally did, the skin around my eyebrows was very red and there was scarring on the inner part where she had applied the beige dye on top of the original dye.”
In desperation for a fix, Valerie consulted other beauticians who told her to use make up remover to get rid of the dye before it sets into her skin.
Unfortunately, the redness and scarring were still very visible even though three weeks had passed since the treatment.
Of course, after how damaged her skin was, Valerie wanted a refund from the beautician she met on Carousell but the lady refused to give the money back.
She kept asking Valerie to go back to her and she will ‘fix it’. The lady was extremely defensive about the procedure too and blamed Valerie for asking for longer brows in the first place.
She even accused Valerie for being impatient and not letting the beige dye set in.
Naturally, Valerie refused to go back to the person who destroyed her face in the first place.
“Why would I go back to her to disfigure my face again?”
Before this, Valerie has done eyebrow embroidery before but has never faced an incident such as this. Since the incident, she has been extremely conscious about her face and uses a lot of concealer and make up to cover the damage.
Besides that, Valerie shared her experience on Facebook, which went quite viral. After seeing that, the beautician offered her a partial refund. “She said she would give me S$100 (approx. RM315) and not a full refund because according to her, I look pretty in my photos.”
“What she doesn’t realise is I was using a lot of concealer and had to redraw my brows!” Valerie lamented.
This is why it is important to visit proper establishments with skilled professionals and well-trained beauticians. We never know when things might go wrong, just like in Valerie’s unfortunate case. Be careful, ladies!
