Kristie Streicher – tinted brows are still fabulously sharp and shapely – she glues, brushes, and seals as a strong taffy-pulling smell arises. The result: a big, bold brow McGrath would love. Me, not so much. But they wash off the next morning.
So- Yes, reader, the upside is that the aging brow can be fixed, and semipermanently. The downside? Takes time and effort. Coco was right. –Vicki Woods

New York Magazine’s
“Best Of New York” Issue
Kristie Streicher Voted ” Best Brows” in New York Magazine’s highly coveted “Best Of” Issue. ” Its a tribute to Kristie Streicher’s talent that a third of her clients are men. She tweezes the brows of both genders, following the natural shape and arch. With men, she goes easy, plucking mostly above and between the eyebrows; on women, she’s a bit more liberal with the tweezers and waxing strips. To finish, she tints the brows, lightening them for bottle blondes, darkening and adding drama for brunettes and redheads. This automatically fills in brows- so you won’t need to worry about brow pencil.”

In one of the first stories in beauty history, Beauty Editor Beth Landman writes about Kristie’s innovative eyebrow tinting technique using a natural vegetable dye… ” Tinting your brows saves you the tiresome task of stenciling or filling them in with pencil. This treatment only takes seconds, and though you may feel a little Groucho Marx-ish at first, the color quickly fades, and slightly darkened brows give the face of structure and contrast. Kristie Streicher uses dye to extend the brows and fill them in. Tinting lasts four to six weeks.

Get-Sexy Secrets: Pros are best at major shape changes, but clean ups are doable at home… and easiest after a shower. “The steam softens the folicles, so hairs are easier to remove,” says L.A. brow expert Kristie Streicher. First, pencil in your brows darker than usual (line up inner brows with sides of your nostrils, then follow your natural arch). and step back from the mirror. Like the shape? Tweeze out-of-bounds hairs, pulling in the direction of growth. Not sure a hair should go? Hide it with concealer to get a prepluck preview. Take off make up, and have one last look see.

In a story on how to achieve perfect brows, New Beauty Magazine covers Kristie’s famous “Eyebrow Rehabilitation”…. Even if you’ve tweezed your brows beyond recognition, there is hope. “Most women have overtweezed their brows at some point and now want natural- looking brows with nice shape,” says Kristie Streicher, make up and eyebrow specialist at the Warren Tricomi Salons in New York City and Los Angeles. “We’re able to achieve that with ‘Brow Rehab.’” During the three- to six- month program (length depends on the brows’ condition), clients are advised not to tweeze their own brows. Instead, they visit Streicher every four to six weeks for clean- up sessions. “Vegetable dye, which creates a fuller, more defined brow, is used, and the results can last up to four weeks,” she adds. Photos of each client’s brow are also taken to track progress and ensure that the most natural shape is executed.

In a story about the state of Eyebrows and the more than frequently seen “Over Tweezed Look” , Kristie Streicher, The Pioneer of the Natural Brow was interviewed… “Kristie Streicher, a brow specialist at Warren Tricomi in West Hollywood, Calif., and Manhattan, sometimes sees girls as young as 11. But for the most part, its her adult clients she has to coax into a kind of brow rehab. “I nurse a lot of people’s brows back to health, and get people off the tweezing, almost like it’s a drug,” Ms. Streicher said. For the worst offenders who pluck daily, its a “control thing,” but a tint can add “definition, thickness and oomph to the brow, and it gives them hope.”

The less we touch our faces, the better. I have an awful habit of picking at imperfections after I wash my face at night. This not only makes a blemish red and irritated, it can cause scarring and spreads the infection under the skin. I usually wake up in the morning to see my little zippy has multiplied and they’re having a party on my face.
