Best Brow Guru

  • Di Medlock, Exhale Spa

    980 Madison Ave., nr. 77th St.; 212-249-3000

    Whatever your brows’ affliction (overplucked, underplucked, there’s only one of them), Exhale’s new guru Di Medlock is poised to doctor it right up. After diagnosing the arches, Medlock uses a combination of trimming, tweezing, threading, and/or waxing to nurse brows back to health. She also prescribes eyebrow conditioner and a take-home plan in order to break bad plucking habits between visits. On the issue of tails, for instance, Medlock shows clients where the outer ends of their arches should stop (premature tails are apparently an epidemic). And, at $35 a shaping session, there’s little temptation to take matters into your own hands.
