Alexandra Brows - Montreal Eyebrow Specialist

I've been getting my eyebrows threaded for years (mostly from Dees Beauty Salon). Yes it's fairly inexpensive (about $4-$5) and they get the job done fast but I've never really found anyone reliable there. Last year, I had a beauty consultation at Sephora and the beauty advisor there suggested Benefit Brow Bar. She also told me that I had extra eyebrow hair, which should be removed. At first I was okay with the idea but later I felt like I wasn't ready to take that step yet. Then I browsed YouTube videos in hope to determine my ideal brow shape but that was a fail. That's when I realized I needed professional help and then I got in touch with Alexandra from Alexandra Brows.

I went there on a Saturday with my best friend. She welcomed us in warmly and lead us to her work station, which was nice and clean.
There were different shades of Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, which I personally use and love. She handed me out a form asking relevant health questions and my basic information (i.e. name, phone number) and I already felt like I was at the right place. 
I quickly took a photo before she started.

She started off by finding the ideal proportion for my face using a stick. Then she drew an outline and informed me that she would remove anything "outside" it. I'm glad she did that because I felt reassured. Finally, she filled them in with ABH Brow Wiz and I was quite happy with the end result.
Here's a side by side comparison and you can see how it looks much more groomed. She also filled them in with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and I simply love how my brows look so natural.

 I also took some photos in the daylight, so it's much more clear. I wish I had taken one in the daylight before I got them done.
Final Thoughts
I'm quite impressed with Alexandra's work. She's very professional and knowledgeable. I actually asked her whether I should get Benefit Gimme Brow Gel and she told their current shades wouldn't work for me. She saved me money right there because I was planning on buying it, so I'm glad she was honest. Also, she takes her time to explain and you can tell she has a passion for it. She's really nice and genuine and I'm glad I got to know about her. I'd definitely recommend checking her out especially if you're looking for someone professional and reliable who offers a personalized service.
I asked her if she doesn't mind being in my vlog and she agreed (yay)! After a couple of takes, we managed to film together. It was hard to refrain ourselves from laughing but we did it. I can't wait for our next appointment, which should be at my place. She will also get to meet my dog (she loves dogs... can she more awesome haha). I will try my best to vlog again then.
