Vanita had a dream of starting her own business and that wish finally came true in 2004 when she opened her first walk-in threading bar. Her original idea was to offer a simple walk-in, pain-free, professional brow threading service, with highly qualified technicians in London. Now, fast forward to 2018 and now she has over 30 Blink Brow Bar locations across the UK, as well as in Saks 5th Avenue in New York City.
Vanita shared with BITB her passion for brows and some insights into her journey to become a super successful female beauty entrepreneur.

Brows frame the face, create balance and draw attention right where you want it – on your baby blues (or browns). While pencils, gels, and plucking have been brow grooming mainstays, microblading has risen as the go-to treatment for fuller, natural-looking results.
Microblading entails using a very fine pen that is really tiny needles to deposit pigment into the skin in strokes that resemble human hair. Since these fine needles only go to the superficial layers of the skin, this technique is semi-permanent as opposed to brow tattoos which are considered permanent. The key benefit of the microblading technique is that when done by an expert, it offers a more natural look that lasts well

Here, a few of the most buzzed-about beauty looks from the Emmy Awards—and step-by-step directions for recreating them yourself!

When it comes to brows, bushy is back in a big, bold way.
For creative inspiration, think Lily Collins, Cara Delevingne and Emmy Rossum.
The ‘80s brought us thick and unruly brows a la Brooke Shields, and the 90s was all about super-skinny, tight-rope brows, but as they say, everything old is new again.
If you are one of the millions of us who overplucked, overwaxed or lasered off excess brow hair to achieve those perfectly pointed narrow brows, don’t fret, you can get your brows back stat. There’s a method for every budget from faux to pro.
