Beauty & Fitness: Raising Eyebrows

ShareThis

If eyes are the window to the soul, eyebrows are the curtains," says Eliza Petrescu of the Avon Center in Trump Tower (725 Fifth Avenue, at 57th Street; 755-2866). "I can change someone's expression from angry to open." Petrescu has become so well known for her pluck ($45 to $65) that she is now marketing her own twelve-piece eyebrow kit, containing tools ranging from tweezers and eyebrow mascara to undereye cream and eyebrow gel, for $85. With the choice of who prunes your brows becoming as crucial as that of who cuts your hair, we point you to Pierre Michel (131 East 57th Street; 753-3995), where the considerably lower-key Dinah Aguirre's following is as thick as Frida Kahlo's unibrow. An initial visit will run you $50; a follow-up "maintenance" visit will run you $35. Independent make-up artist Paulo Siqueira (4 Park Avenue, near 33rd Street; 779-9270) believes waxing is too harsh for the eye area. Liv Tyler, Naomi Campbell, and Pia Getty trust him implicitly ($50 for an initial visit; $30 for follow-up visits.)
