Eyebrows play a crucial role in our overall facial appearance, and minor tweaks can have a major impact. But the “bold brow” trend isn’t the only reason to amp up your arches… Fort Lauderdale, Florida permanent makeup provider Diane Makish explains that clients come to her for more than sparse brows due to years of overplucking. “Hair loss due to chemotherapy and alopecia, as well as trichotillomania (the compulsive urge to pull out hair) are just a few medical reasons to consider the variety of brow enhancement treatments.” Permanent makeup is definitely a long-lasting solution but it’s not the only option, and here are a variety of “faux” and “pro” ways to get full, b

How can I get rid of a tattoo I have had since college?
Tattoos are one of those spur of the moment things you tend to regret at some point down the road- except maybe if you’re a rocker or a biker babe. They are also not so easy to get rid of – but lasers are the answer. Having a tattoo removed is much more expensive than getting it. Tattoo artists use heavy metals in their inks that can be resistant to many new laser technologies; for example, black has iron, blue has cobalt.
