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.

Depil Brazil’s clean, fast technique relies on two direct applications of warm, soothing, highly elastic wax – and no paper. In each client’s private room, our highly trained, professional estheticians remove the entire strip of wax in the first pull, normally removing about 80 percent of hair with minimal pain. Then, wax is reapplied, and the second pull painlessly removes the rest. Multiple areas of skin are waxed at the same time, getting clients back to their busy lives much faster, with smoother skin that lasts.
