The Brow Rehab & Repair menu is most appropriate for clients looking to regrow their brow or change the shape/size: the services include custom Brow Mapping, Brow Shaping using soft wax only, with additional trimming and tweezing as needed. Skincare with active ingredients should be discontinued 10-14 days before your appointment. Failure to do so may result in tearing of or damage to the skin. If you are a new client, please do not touch your brows for a minimum of 6 weeks before coming to your first appointment.
What should I expect?
When we meet, I will introduce you to a technique I use called Brow Mapping. This is a method used by many of my favorite brow artists (Anastasia Soares refers to it as the Golden Ratio) and training companies. I will go in-depth during the consultation, but to put it simply: I find where the brow should start, arch and end by measuring specific points on the client's face. After finding these points, I use them to draw an outline over and around the existing brow, using it as a guide to determine what hair I will remove and what hair will be left behind. Clients who are looking to grow out their brows into a new shape will go through the same process, known as Brow Rehab.
Overtweezed, overwaxed or threaded? Brows too thin, two different shapes or full of holes? Let's get you into Rehab!
Brow Rehab clients are Brow Mapped at each appointment for consistency and receive a full Brow Shaping service at each appointment. I ask all of my Brow Rehab clients to leave their brows alone completely in order for me to work more effectively.
Brow Rehab can take 1-3 years to complete, depending on the severity and method of the client's follicle damage. It is usually a slow but steady process.
Why do I have follicle damage?
The hair follicle is a small organ located in the dermal layer of the skin. It is responsible for creating and nourishing hair cells all over the body. When a follicle dies, it will no longer produce hormones or peptides needed to produce hair cells, resulting in permanent hair loss at that site. Some clients may experience permanent hair loss due to health conditions, medication, drug use, infection, side effects from medication as well as mechanical friction, such as tweezing, threading, or excess rubbing or pulling.
Does that mean my brows can't be fixed?
Follicle damage can potentially be repaired. After much research, I have found topical ingredients that are beneficial to aiding in healing hair follicles. My signature conditioning brow treatment is 100% natural, vegan and cruelty-free. It contains powerful anti-inflammatories such as horsetail (plant) extract and CBD oil which allow nutrients to penetrate the hair shaft and root. The result is faster growing, stronger, shinier, healthier brows. You can purchase it online for use before your first appointment or in the salon.
How often should I get waxed?
Hair removal services should be repeated every 4-12 weeks depending on each client's rate of growth and style preference.
Who can't get waxed?
Clients using any form of retinoids/retinol, prescription skincare, and/or acne medication are not eligible for services at Brows By Jane. Please wait 30 days after receiving a chemical peel, dermaplaning treatment, microdermabrasion, microblading (any form of eyebrow tattoo), or microneedling to seek out this service. Clients allergic to glyceryl rosinate, palm oil, rapeseed oil, soybean oil, caprylic/capric triglyceride, chamomile flower, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl hydroxyhydrocinnamate, titanium dioxide, or paraffinum liquidum, or those with open cuts, wounds, infections, undiagnosed lumps, or sunburn in the brow area cannot be serviced.
Why is it important to receive the treatments offered on the Brow Rehab & Repair menu in addition to Shaping?
Eyebrow hair and skin need to be treated and cared for just as well and gently as any other sensitive area of the body. The face is fragile and many of us, mostly women, have weakened our own follicles and hair roots due to mechanical damage like tweezing, threading, and waxing. I can help care for this delicate area using professional products that will strengthen hair and skin to the best of its ability over time, improving our ability to reach shaping goals. I strongly recommend this for all Brow Rehab clients and those who wear brow makeup often.

What is the Olaplex© Standalone Treatment?
From the manufacturer: "All hair its integrity from healthy, properly paired, disulfide bonds. When hair is damaged via thermal, chemical, mechanical, or environmental factors, these disulfide bonds are broken apart resulting in single sulfur hydrogen bonds. What happens after a disulfide bond breaks? There are two reactions that can take place. The first reaction is that the single sulfur hydrogen component pairs with a single oxygen molecule. This makes a perfect pair with no further damage taking place. The second reaction is where damage occurs. A single sulfur hydrogen molecule will pair with three oxygen molecules creating S03, or what is known as a sulfate group. The protonated sulfate is known as Cysteic Acid. Cysteic acid then eats the protein out of the hair. In the case of chemical services, Olaplex© works by pairing with the single sulfur hydrogen bond faster than the three oxygen molecules can." *an optional package including a deep conditioning treatment using the salon-exclusive Olaplex 4-in-1 Moisture Mask is available
