The handiwork of Sania Vucetaj of Sania's Brow Bar.  

Dr. Ronald Sherman/Trish McEvoy Skin Care Center
800A Fifth Ave., Ste. 401, at 61st St.; 212-758-7790
Mia Veresmortean has been the solo brow specialist here for over a decade. She uses a combination of tweezing, chamomile-infused Azulene wax, and gentle Pearl Rosin wax to clean up and shape overgrown arches. Those with graying or thinned-out brows opt for Veresmortean's subtle vegetable-dye tints, while overwaxed clients receive a deft demo with a fine brow pencil to ease the awkward in-between phase.

Sania's Brow Bar
18 W. 56th St., nr. Fifth Ave.; 212-247-1129
Sania Vucetaj earned her chops as the brow specialist at Bergdorf Goodman before splitting to open this airy, private midtown studio. Vucetaj forgoes waxing—which she says stretches the delicate skin around the eyes—in favor of meticulous, (virtually) painless tweezing.

Ramy Spa
39 E. 31st St., second fl., nr. Madison Ave.; 212-684-9500
Ramy shuns cookie-cutter brows for a personally tailored approach, tweezing and trimming according to each client's bone structure, eyes, age, and hair type. He aims to achieve an eye-opening arch while maintaining the fullest brow possible.

Robin Evans Skincare
611 Broadway, Ste. 508, nr. Houston St.; 212-677-6114
Owner Robin Evans begins with a French hard wax infused with essential oils, following up with tweezing and trimming for precision. Those with sensitive skin can skip the wax and request tweezing only.

Shobha
Various locations.
Harvard MBA Shobha Tummala founded this chain of inviting threading salons in 2001, specializing in brow shaping for those with sensitive skin. Threaders are precise and gentle, rounding out each appointment with a spritz of rose water to soothe redness.
