To achieve beautifully groomed eyebrows, however, you need routine maintenance. This can include a combination of professional services like trimming, shaping, tinting, waxing, threading, microblading, laminating and tattooing.

In this article, we’ll outline the qualities to consider when choosing a salon for brow tidying, and share where to find the best in Canberra.
What makes a great salon to get your eyebrows tidied?
Choosing the right salon to get your brows tidied will make or break your experience. It will give you confidence that your brows will look amazing and enhance your features.
It can be helpful to keep the following in mind when choosing a salon to get your brows tidied.
- Experienced. Ask a salon how experienced its brow technicians are and what training they’ve had. Some salons specialise in brows.
- Cost. While the price varies depending on the brow treatment you need, you won’t want to overpay. This is why you should compare costs across a few salons.
- Advice. Because every set of brows is different, it’s important to ask for advice on what you need for the perfect brow shape, colour and look.
- Range. Not all salons provide all brow services. Some provide a complete range of services and others a limited range. It’s best to ask what a salon offers before you book with them.
- Hygiene. You’ll want a salon that is clean, neat, tidy and follows strict hygiene processes. This is the only way to avoid getting an infection or other treatment problems.

Frequently Asked Questions
What type of brow services are there?
You’ll discover a wide range of brow services on the market. This includes professional services like trimming, shaping, tinting, waxing, threading, microblading, laminating and tattooing.
What type of brow tidying treatment do I need?
The type of treatment you’ll need depends on many factors. This includes the shape, condition and colour. Some people just need a bit of shaping. Others need much more to achieve the perfect brows. It’s best to ask the salon for advice on your needs.
What’s the difference between brow threading and waxing?
Waxing and threading both remove unwanted brow hair from the follicle. Waxing is quick and instant but might not be the best approach if you have sensitive skin, are undergoing certain other beauty treatments or are using certain kinds of skin care products. Threading is more precise, but some people find it a bit more uncomfortable because it takes more time.
What is the difference between henna and microblading my brows?
Both processes use dyes and/or ink pigments. Microblading, however, is a tattooing technique. A small handheld tool made of several tiny needles is used to add semi-permanent pigment to your skin. Henna brows are achieved when henna or another type of dye is used that works on both brow hairs and skin.
How much does brow tidying cost?
The cost depends on the extent of work required to tidy your brows and other brow services you may need. Prices will vary from salon to salon so do your research and compare costs.
