We sat down with the female boss and founder of Brow Bar London to talk all things beauty and business. Read below for her tips on achieving the perfect brows, a work / life balance, and self-confidence.
MU: What is the mission of Brow Bar?
Y: The mission is to fine tune your already present beauty to achieve the most natural look possible. Brows are like the frame of your face which a lot of women underestimate-they can give your face a lift, enhance your eye colour and frame your eyes. Lashes on the other hand define your eye shape- they open up your eyes giving them a larger appearance or they can give you a 'cat eye' look depending on what you're into.
MU: Has the beauty industry changed since you started?
Y: Definitely; everyone wants to seem 'untouched' nowadays which is great for us because that was the initial goal of the brand we brought to the market after noticing a lack of options for a more 'organic' look.
MU: How do you balance your work/life balance as a business founder?
Y: When we first opened I wasn't very good at separating the two and since then I have learnt to always listen to my body, my routine might be different than what works for someone else. I always stick to my morning rituals which are pretty time consuming and the peak of my productivity is at night- I always reply to my emails, fix the schedule and plan my to do list during this time. Of course me and my phone are inseparable when I travel.
MU: What advice would you give to anyone to feel more confident in themselves and body?
Y: The magnificent feature of all women is that we are like flowers- all beautiful, rare- never underestimate yourself. Imperfections are what makes us unique. If you show yourself love and acknowledge how much work your body does for you, then an extra kilo on a scale won't change your day or life. If you feel pressured by social media then take a break from it! Start with meditation for your mind and nourish your body with clean eating, movement, and any personal ceremony you share with yourself; that's a true way to self acknowledge who you are and your worth.
