Elke started her career as a makeup artist and often enough she started receiving a lot of attention for her work on eyebrows. Elke eventually developed her own product line for brow growth and opened her own brow studio.
We used Elke The Brow Collection- a 3-step product line to help grow fuller brows for 3 weeks prior to going to visit Elke for our brow shaping appointment.
How to use Elke The Brow Collection
1) Use elke Brow Scrub 3-4 times a week. Take a bit of the product rub it through your eyebrows, above and under your actual brow for 1 full minute. Rinse.
2) Use elke Brow Serum right after using the Brow Scrub. Smooth the serum on the brow and on the skin around the brow that needs growth. Do not rinse off.
3) Use elke Brow Smooth whenever you feel your brows are getting coarse and very thick. This helps tame brows and keeps them in place.
After 3 weeks of treating our brows we noticed hairs growing in places that we’ve never seen before, but have been hoping they’d spring up to fill in those empty spaces!
We arrived at Elke’s studio ready to be groomed. Elke starts her consolations asking the client how they previously had their brows groomed and styled to understand how the client got to the brow they have today. Elke also starts off with asking her clients what kind of an eyebrow do they want to achieve. Using tweezers Elke gently and swiftly takes away unwanted hairs to reveal to you the brows you’ve always wanted for yourself!
Q&A with Elke Von Freudenberg
Q: How can you shape your eyebrow at home with no stencil?
A: Go by your natural brow shape. The start of brow should be between the bones of the nose and tear duct of the eye. The arch should be positioned straight up above just the outside the iris of the eye. Don’t do it an angle, it will make the arch too far out causing eyes to look cross-eyed. The brow should end at the end of the eye.
Q: Do you have any tips on how to avoid the itch to pluck eyebrows when trying to grow them out?
A: When growing out your brows you should clean them up a bit but keep as much hair as you can along the brow shape. Most people don’t realize but when you grow out your eyebrows all you really need is two rows of hair to grow, not much.
The Elke Brow Collection is available in her salon in NYC, online at www.thebrowcollection.com and at select retail outlets.
