Lash Shedding 101


Our eyelashes fall out in cycles, completely replenishing every 60-90 days? Almost makes you wonder how we have any left, right? Our bodies are so clever, that with each lash that falls out, another has already started growing to fill its place (thanks body, you clever thing!). 

The average person will lose approximately five to seven lashes per day. You probably wouldn’t even notice this normally because lashes are so fine and light. If you have lash extensions however, you may notice it more. BUT, before you blame or second guess your poor lash tech, let us reassure you that lash shedding is a completely normal and natural process. 


Quite a lot, actually! From your natural shedding cycle which varies (sometimes hugely) from person to person, to the season – there are many factors which can impact your shedding cycle.


Just like none of us share a fingerprint, none of us share identical lash shedding cycles. Your general health, age, medications you may take and naughty habits (we’re looking at you, lash-tuggers/touchers) can all impact how long your lashes remain in place. Those with hormonal imbalances, nutrient or iron deficiencies, thyroid disease, oily skin or even just those under extreme stress are all known to have a faster lash shedding rate.


Spring, that is. And Autumn. These are the seasons where people will experience greater hair shedding. This doesn’t just apply to the occasional person – every single human being will shed more hair during this time. It isn’t called ‘Lash Shedding Season’ for nothin’! 


Unless you’re a lash tugger/toucher (in which case you must stop this immediately – dreadful habit!), there isn’t a whole lot you can do unfortunately. Keeping your 2-3 weekly infill appointments will make sure any shedding remains unnoticeable and you will have full-looking lashes all year round. Another thing to remember is to keep your lash extensions clean, and brush them into place each day. Be sure to use an oil-free lash cleanser. This will help keep away additional build up and keep your lashes healthy and happy. If you want to promote growth and density, you could also buy a lash growth serum (ask any of our friendly staff about our Browgasm or Lash Rejuvenator Products next time you’re in the salon).

Brow Lamination

Finally ladies, we have an answer to taming your unruly brows…  (insert applause here)  It’s Brow Lamination.

This new beauty technique, originates from Europe and is used on the brows to style & set them into place, creating symmetry to even then most sparse set of brows.

How does it work?
First the eyebrows are brushed upwards or into your desired position/style, the beautician will then apply a solution which will ‘straighten & set’ them in place.  The final product can last between 4- 8 weeks, however these results will differ with each customer dependant on many factors which may include your current brow growth cycle and/or lifestyle.


Brow Lamination is most suited for those with brow hairs that grow in different directions to each other, and sparse brows that need to be lifted up to look fuller. 

*If you have had any reaction to Lash Lift products, have sensitive skin or a skin condition this service isn’t recommended for you.

What to expect afterwards…

In 4 words – Bold, stand out brows!

In order to compliment the lamination technique, we suggest to combine the service with a brow wax/thread + tint or henna to perfect your brows giving them that full, voluminous appearance.

Is there any aftercare?
Your brows will need to stay dry for at least 24 hours.  We also suggest applying an argan oil or brow serum once a week to keep the brow hairs strong and healthy.  Also remember to brush your brows every few days to help maintain their new structure.

Eyelash Extensions – After Care Tips

Now you have your new luscious lashes to show off to the world, however tempting it may be please resist touching them for at least 3 hours. It’s also best to avoid spray tans, exposure to steam/heat & we also give you permission to have the day off from the gym!!

For the next 24 hours, try not to get your lashes wet either, this will give the adhesive the best time to set & ensure the longevity of your amazing new lashes!!

Finally, the most important tips are to wash & brush your lashes daily & with new naturally bold lashes, there’s no need for mascara.

Our Eyelash Extension Technicians in Adelaide, Canberra and Darwin can also recommend any product from our range of eyelash extensions after care range.

Eyelash Extensions – Classic, Hybrid, Volume – Which to Choose?


Gone are the days where there was only a simple choice strip or classic lashes!! The ever-evolving beauty industry now has developed several options for clients to choose from.

But what’s best for me you ask?  Well we’ve tried to simplify the differences between the different types of eyelash extensions that we offer in Adelaide, Canberra & Darwin below.

Classic Eyelash Extensions


Classic Eyelash Extensions

This option is where our lash technicians to apply one extension to one natural eyelash. At the end, the person gets an enhanced lash line that has a realistic natural appearance. We can only apply extensions to as many natural lashes you have. Therefore, if you have sparse lashes and are looking for a full look, then Classics are not going to be your option.

Classic Lashes are recommended to those people who wish their lashes to have a natural yet beautiful look or a 1st timer to the lash extension world. (be careful once you’ve been lashed… you’ll never go back).

Volume Lashes


Volume Lashes

This option will give you a fluffy and fuller appearance by applying multiple extensions ‘fans’ to every one of your natural lashes.  It is why Volume lashes provide amazing results to those people who have a thinly dispersed lash line, fine lashes or those who want really full lashes.

Hybrid Lashes


This is a 50/50 mixture of Volume and Classic lashes offering a more textured look giving you the best of both of them. Hybrid Eyelash Extensions are a great way to add volume, to see the potential look it can provide you. It is also great for the people with sparse lashes who want to make their lashes voluminous.

Lash Extensions Difference

Browz & Beauty Westfield Marion beauty salon and Westfield Woden beauty salon offering all 3 eyelash extension options.

Browz & Beauty Gateway Darwin beauty salon offers our signature Classic Eyelash Extension at this stage.

What is Brow Henna?


Brow Henna is a type of Eyebrow Tinting that stains the skin lying under the brow hair and colours the brow leaving long-lasting, luscious tint that can last up to 6 weeks in the hair and up to 14 days on the skin. Brow Henna has 99.5% natural ingredients as its constituent. With a wide range of colours, it allows a person to find the ideal blend that is suitable for any hair colour or skin type. 

What Is the Difference Between Henna and Brow Tint?

Eyebrow Tinting slightly stains the skin and after a day or two, it fades to a natural, subtle finish. It takes approximately 3-5 minutes for the colour to develop, and there are several varieties of shades that are mixed to match your hair/skin tones.

Brow henna service provided by us in Adelaide, Canberra and Darwin locations stands perfect for people who have sparse brows, as it colours the skin in order to create a ‘powder-filled’ look. It lasts longer than the average eyebrow tints. Due to the natural ingredients of the product, it suits most clients who generally have sensitive skin.

How Long Will This Last?

This question will depend on many factors. Clients with oily skin may find the results don’t last as long as a normal skin type.  Also, if you use a lot of facial products, the henna will fade quicker.

Is There Any Aftercare for Henna Brows?

After your brow henna service, we recommend the following:

  • Add Eyebrow Threading or Waxing to your appointment to get optimal results
  • Do not wet the eyebrows for as long as possible ( at least for the first 12 hours)
  • Use as little products on your brow area as possible 

Browz & Beauty is a leading beauty salon located in Gateway Shopping Centre NT, Mitchell Centre NT, Westfield Marion, SA & Westfield Woden, ACT.

Benefits of Waxing in Winter

Did you know?
Regular waxing results in the hair growing back softer, finer, and thinner!!

It’s no secret that for most of us during the Winter months our waxing routine gets shelved, along with our bikinis!!! But we need to remember it probably more important to upkeep your maintenance in order to have your skin Summer ready for when it finally comes around again and having to retrain your hair growth can take up to 2 – 2 months ? So let’s not risk it ladies!

If you still need some convincing, keep reading as we’ve included a few more facts…

1. Cold weather generally means our skin doesn’t get shown as often, however the downside of wearing pants every day means there is daily friction caused against the hair shafts resulting in uneven hair growth and ingrown hairs.

2. The colder winter weather is extremely harsh on our skin and this means that just moisturising alone won’t be sufficient enough to deeply hydrate your skin. Waxing opens up your pores and gently exfoliates your skin by removing dead skin cells, which allows moisturiser to be easily absorbed by your skin

3. Lastly, by keeping up the same waxing schedule you had in the summer will ensure that you are always going to be prepared for those last minute parties that require you to flash a bit of skin ?

Everything you need to know if you are or have ever considered Cosmetic Eyebrow Tattooing!!

Eyebrow tattooing has come a long way from the thick, obvious block-shaped eyebrows you might be imagining. The new style of brow tattooing, mostly referred to as feather touch tattooing or micro blading, is becoming so popular most qualified technicians are booked out months in advance!!
If you thought having on fleek brows 24/7 was impossible… well not anymore!  After your eyebrow tattooing session, you can say goodbye to brow pencils and powders, and although you do still need to maintain your brows (with threading or waxing), your finished look will be a fuller, perfectly styled brow.
But before anything permanent is done, Jeevi will discuss with you the end result you are looking for…
“Firstly I will sit down with the client to have a lengthy chat about what type shape they are looking, I will take some measurements of their face and initially draw on the shape which would be best suited for their facial features.  We can then draw, and re-draw the shape as many times as needed until myself and the client are happy ?. There are no time limits when it comes to the consultation process as it’s my most important policy for my client to be 110% happy and confident with the shape before I proceed”.
Rest assured you own hair isn’t removed!! Using a hand tool with fine needles, Feather strokesare made through your existing hair to visually fill inthe sparse hair areas and create a more bold, fuller shape.  The procedure normally takes around two hours in total in which you are lying down for.  This time also includes the time we take to let the numbing cream kick in first!  Yes, that’s right you don’t have to go this procedure alone… numbing cream is applied to ease any potential discomfort you may experience? However, most clients have described the pain as a 2 out of 10 and resembles a scratchy like sensation.
Our regular pricing structure will be as follows:
$450 (including 4-6 weeks touch up)
6-8 week touch up $50
8+ week touch up $100
6 month touch up $150
Annual touch up $200


Overtime the pigment in the strokes will blur into a soft and extremely subtle ‘wash of colour’. Oily skin types can have the pigments break down and blur the ‘crisp’ lines at a faster rate than dry skin types would.  This is the reasons why we highly recommend that you commit to all touch-up appointments to ensure your new eyebrow look investment lasts and stays fresh!
Cosmetic Eyebrow Tattooing is also a viable option for those going through chemotherapy or people with alopecia.

Transforming your look from DAY to NIGHT in 3 Simple Steps!

Your March diary is full with Adelaide’s Mad March festivities, but long days in the office have left your skin and make-up looking a little worse for wear by 5pm…Not everyone will have the luxury to head home for a total makeover before heading out after work, so here are a few tips for the simple desk-to-drinks switch.



Pairing primers with long-wear foundationswill improve longevity for day-to-night looks. Dusting a lightweight powder over the skin will control shine.Change your lip colour – This is one of the easiest ways to take a look from day to night. If you wear a nude during the day, change it up with a red for after 5.



Let your hair down! If you prefer to have it up during the work day, put it up with intention to let it down! Find a way to style it so it will still look great when it’s that time to let it down… But when all else fails, a messy top knot is your ‘go to’ look.



Just a few slight tweaks to you 9-5 outfit are all that is needed. Slip off the suit jacket, enhance your accessories, add a clutch and finally swap the comfy flats to stunning stilettos!!
