Browhaus Brow Resurrection Review

This post was posted originally on 16th December 2011. I just went a few days ago for a touch up and thought I would update everyone on how it went. Scroll down to the bottom for the updates if you have read this post before.


I had a little free time a week ago and I went to Browhaus to thread my eye brows and upper lip. I had quite a good first time experience at Browhaus (you can read about it here) and so I bought a package and have been going there to get my brows done regularly.

I'm very easily swayed into buying packages and things. I have absolutely no control at all. I was yet again sweet talked into doing the Brow Resurrection service. For your information I paid SGD$800 for it. You know the whole spiel about how it is the end of the year and there is a special promotion price yadda yadda well this girl fell for it hook line and sinker and I paid for it and made an appointment to come in on Friday to get it done.

I waited till after my Capella trip because it is quite important that after the brow resurrection treatment my brows do not get wet which means no swimming. 

So what is a Brow Resurrection? To put it simply, it is a semi permanent eye brow embroidery that is said to last between 1 to 1.5 years.

Why did I decide to do this? Well, my brows are kinda uneven and sparse. 


See what I mean


Until now, I have yet to master how to draw my brows well. I would like groomed eye brows all the time. Besides I wanted to find out what was it like.

Today was The Day. I took some pictures of before just so you, dear readers can see the difference. The things I do for the sake of research! (Just kidding!)





The above are the before shots. I had my brows threaded just a week before so they still look neat and tidy. I'm not sure if you notice, my brows and slightly uneven. One is a tad higher than the other. My brows do not have tails either, I have to draw them in.

The whole thing took me one and a half hour. The first part was to have the therapist  J draw my eye brows to a shape which I was satisfied with. Then a numbing cream was spread all over my brows and we had to wait for about 20 minutes before we began. During the 20 minutes, J mixed the dye which matched my eye brows and I had another lady read out an indemnity form to me. Do I have epilepsy, heart conditions etc. I was a little worried. I clarified that the procedure was not painful and I asked why was it necessary. Well basically I got the standard issue reply about how they needed to protect themselves in case there was a problem. Naturally being the dutiful customer I signed without any questions. If DH was there I probably get a good scolding.

After 20 minutes J wiped off the cream and started work. I am relieved to say I felt no pain, it was more of an uncomfortable scraping sensation towards the end of each brow session. Perhaps by then my brows were a little sore and I felt the scraping a little more than the beginning. 

J used a tool which he dipped in the dye and made very fine lines to mimic that of eye brow hairs.  He was constantly checking to see if my brows were symmetrical and whether the dye was too light or too dark. When it was done he applied some lotion and there was a slight stinging. My brows did feel sore but I'm glad that after about an hour they did not feel sore any more. 

Am I happy with it? I'm not sure, I'm not totally bursting with delight. I guess it takes getting used to. My brows do look more defined now. I wonder if I look fierce. Do I? I'm not happy that this totally emphasized the fact that one brow starts a little lower than the other. I will probably need a little make up magic to conceal it. I wonder if DH will notice and say anything about it.







I realise I haven't finish spending yet though. I was told I needed some after care products to ensure that my brows will be at their best. Sigh! This cute packaging containing the Build and Fix product cost me another SGD$160.








My after care means no prolonged contact with water for at least 1 week. I have to take extra care when I wash my face. No skincare or make up around the brow region. No swimming, facials, steam baths, saunas or exposing them to the sun for the next two weeks.

I will keep updating on how everything  goes. I am up for a tune up session within 3 months. So until then I will hold off my ratings.


I keep looking at the mirror! Sheesh!


Day 1
My brows don't hurt unless I touch it. Last night I touched my brows while sleeping, I woke up almost immediately because it hurt. I finding it a pain to wash my face without getting my brows wet. After the second time I was like what the heck I'll wash my face like normal. I just added more Fix onto my brows before washing. DH doesn't like it at all. Not that he noticed until I pointed it out to him. Sigh! I'm kinda regretting it now.


Day 4
My brows do not hurt any more but they do itch a little sometimes. I'm still getting use to my brows. I'm getting mixed reviews from friends and family. My mom likes them but another colleague says that they could be longer and lower. Hm...I can't wait for them to fade more and become more natural.


Day 14
I celebrated my two weeks by having a relaxing facial mask! By Day 6, I could see scabbing appearing on my brows. I resisted the temptation of peeling them off and let them fall off by themselves. Everything looks clean by Day 10. I also used less of the products that were given to me, I'm not sure whether it will affect the tint.


Here are my brows not drawn on Day 14.

Day -1

Day 14

Day 14
At this moment, I don't feel that my brows look much better than when I normally draw my brows to justify the amount I paid for it. I'm going to wait till it is time for a tune up and after to see if there is an improvement.


10 March 2012


It has been almost 3 months and I have finally gone for my Brow Resurrection touch up. I would have gone two weeks earlier but a bad cough prevented me from going. Just to recap, I took the picture below just before going for my touch up. I did not fill in by brows, I went au naturel. Please note that I did a brow threading session three weeks ago so my brows still look quite tidy.





When I went in for the touch up, I told J my therapist that the last time round I notice that my brows were slightly uneven. One was slightly higher up than the other. So when J drew my brows he told that my brow were not symmetrical and showed me that my brow hairs grew differently. (Am I making sense?) The drawn brows look quite okay so I gave him the okay to do the actual procedure. This time I was more sensitive to the pain, it hurt more that the last time not sure why. So J gave me more numbing cream and after that it was much more bearable. So this is the end result.




Have I mentioned how pushy the counter staff can be? Anyway they were trying to persuade me to get another BR package early because it is a good price. I can hold it for a few years and use it when it fades. I put my foot down and said no. I will want to see how this BR fares in the coming months. I do another update in about two to three months time for you to see the difference.

  3. I went to get my brows threaded today and almost got talked into the BResurrection...... im such a sucker. luckily i didnt have my creidt card so i couldnt go ahead with it.... (but i almost did) -- i swear they all go to the most ruthless sales academy!! i just fall for it.....

    it is Very expensive though........ they quoted me 840 ( as a special promo?!) ...... do u really think it's worth it??

  4. aniB, I think you should shop around and ask around for recc before you decide, don't be like me. I have a sneaky feeling that they will tell everyone that this price is a special promo. It has been two weeks now and my eye brows look more natural. I'll take a picture tomorrow again and do a comparison. I'm so used to them now that I don't know how it was before. :)

  5. Hi Jacqueline

    Did you ask your therapist to lighten the color? Your resurrection seems to be a little too light after 14 days!

  6. Hey Novia, thanks for your comment. I did mention I wanted natural brows so he told me he would not darken my brows too much.

  7. I actually love the BR on you, but I kind of agree that with the price, I might have continued attempting it on my own. It looks really great, though!

    1. Hey Alex, i love my brows too thanks! It has been about 3 weeks since my touch up and it had slightly faded but I'm glad it still maintains its shape just less dark. If you do want do your brows I would definitely suggest you ask around for reliable shops. I paid too much.

  8. Thank you for your posts! I'm about to have my BR done soon. Some friends had their done at browhaus and didn't report any downtime (i.e. they went on to teach their fitness classes immediately after the session). I have no idea what to expect, or how much pain there will be, and your post has helped me a lot! Thank you.

    1. You probably feel like how I felt after I had it done, it loos quite different than what you are used to right? You will get used to it. After so many months I do like my brows but still don't think it is worth paying so much for it.

  10. Jacqueline: thank you for your detailed and honest post, i thought of checking out BR during my threading appointment but it got cancelled. Now i can rethink if even to go to Browhaus if they are the hard sell type. Good luck with your brows, they do look nice in your latest pictures which is what's tempting me to step into that place!

    1. Hey Anon, do think about it carefully.

      I don't need to go to tidy my brows as often as in the past and until now they still look darker and slightly more refined than my normal messy brows but that's about it.

      Your brow technician is very important because it is his/her skills that matters the most. When they draw for you and ask you to check, scrutinize like hell before you agree and make sure your brows are balanced and don't buy the treatment gel.

  11. I went for a normal threading + tweeze and got convinced into getting a package too..at first i said no to the BR package they were pushing and then they started suggesting another package that was worth a lot less...in the end i relented and got the cheaper package but i haven't gone back because the threading totally emphasized the uneven nature of my brows. i totally get what you said (mine were exactly like yours in the photo) just that i felt mine was even more extreme (like one started 0.5cm below the other brow) and people were noticing without me having to point it out! oh the horror.... a mac counter girl even volunteered to help me fill them out/make them more even. needless to say i went home in almost immediately after that and spent a long time trying to tweeze/even it out/undo the damage....in the end i had to let my brows grow out completely (it took 4 months) while tweezing the strays here and there before both sides finally looked more even

    now i do my brows on my own (just tweezing) which is not ideal but i really don't trust to go back and use my package....i don't know does it expire or something?? i was seriously super mad at myself because i wasted my money on something i wasn't even satisfied on...

    it's great that you lay down the facts/give an unbiased opinion i think what really matters is
    1) the skill of the brow technician (i think mine really was a bit wonky that day)
    2) check, check and check again in PROPER LIGHTING (the place is always so dim) that they are balanced (i was shown one brow at a time if i recall correctly)
    3) they are going to take out a calculator and show you how much you will save if you get a package, seriously think through before wasting some cash like me..

      I still go back to do threading for my brows and upper lip but have to contend with their constant pushing of the brow Resurrection package. If it is supposed to last for one to two years why would they want to push for me to get another package when I just had my touch up in March?

  16. Hey nice brow,Jacqueline. But you really paid too much for it. but hows your brow now by the way?

    By the way i can recommend you going to browhaus great world city to try out the therapist over there,if you are still considering having your brows threaded.The therapist name Melody,she a very skill and experience therapist that worked for 6-7years. I have tried as well as my friend shes really good as compare to the therapist from other outlet.Cheers!

    1. Hey Yvonne, well they are back to normal, just a hint of darker and definition. I still need to draw them. Thanks for the recommendation. I wish it was at the HV branch :) it s nearer to my place GW is kinda out of my way. Sigh, don't you wish every therapist had the same level of skills?

      Delete
    2. Of course I wish. But you know that everyone have different style of doing thing,so same level of skill is surely impossible. And Ya sometimes you have to try the skills of the therapist from other outlets. It's because HV is nearer to your place that's why you go there everytime even if you felt they are not up to your expectation.

  17. Hi,

    I'm thinking of doing my brows but I'm not willing to pay so much as I'm still a student&unemployed. Would you know where else which is as good and is at a lower rate? Quite desperate to get mine done.

    1. I only had my brows threaded by another lady and it hurt so adly. I would literally be in tears after the session. I'm sticking on them at the moment because the threading doesn't hurt so much. I'm not the best person to recc but another commentor mentioned that the Browhaus Great World has a good technician named Melody, perhaps you want to give her a try. But be forewarned, you must resist their pushy counter staff.

  19. Hey Jac,

    Thanks so much for the info, I kept regretting that I actually bought another package under browhaus which happened yesterday night. & so I decided to google reviews about it, and happened to chanced upon your blog. Yes they were so pushy, and I went to the one at HV too. Basically all 5 staff were instigating and pestering me to buy for a whole 20 minutes. I really wonder if their conscience is clear.

    They actually told me that now is their 10-year anniversary and having a promo of $1200 (original price + 1 FREE touch up + 20% discount)... I was like.. nah... & as usual being nice saying I will consider in future ... then they started "You are interested in the package right/ i'll call my manager now." Which I've got it I think twice before. I wonder if they really did call their manager. And suddenly I get a 30% discount. So after GST I had to pay about $898. But I only made the down payment of $270 JUST to secure the package.

    Which they told me if I don't feel like doing it in the future, I can just convert them to credit and continue normal brow threading. What a dilemma. Do you think I should just go along with the package and just f that shit, & try something new? Or should I back out? Or if I can even try to get a refund?

    Any tips on this?

    It's the same through out all their companies & outlets both Strip & Browhaus, I actually feel quite depressed every time I go for my appt cus I know somehow they will physco the shit out of me, who isn't very good at rejecting...

    1. I can totally understand what you are going through. After paying for the thing I kept wondering if I have made a big mistake. I am a big pushover, I can't say no if my life depended on it. If I had to do it all over again, I would have resisted harder. I don't see that much of a difference to justify the amount I paid. Going regularly for brow threading would have done the trick just fine.

      Cheryl what does your heart tell you to do my dear? If you have misgivings about it, then don't go through with it. Get it converted to regular threading service.

      If you are worried about how the sales people will make you feel perhaps you want to bring along a friend or a guy who will help you resist.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Thought through... And I am interested in trying something new and something ill probably do once in my life. You know the saying "you only live once" ... But... I think it's also true that its not worth the money..

    I guess I will be converting it into credit. Thanks a lot for your feedback, it did help me indeed quite a fair bit! ;)

  22. Hey Jac,

    Thanks for your reply!

    I've thought true and I do feel that I'm interested in trying something new and something that I will do just once in my life since I've always had the mentality that we only live one life... Yet it's also true that it isn't worth paying so much just for a set of brows that I can easily thread and just take a min or two to draw..

    Thanks a lot for your feedback! It did help me quite a fair bit indeed! Looks like ill be converting my credit haha!

  23. Hi Jacqueline,
    Like the way your eyebrows look, very good job. I am just wondering how does it look when it starts to fade. Does it still look natural?
    I am considering to do the procedure but concerned with what happens once it starts to fade. What if you decide you don't want to continue the treatment? Will it start to fade and also blend throughout that skin area? I am very curious. Thanks

  24. Hi there,
    Your eyebrows definitely look great and very natural. I am considering to do this procedure but worried about how it will look once it starts to fade. I don't think I will want to continue to uptake it and wondering if it still looks natural after 1 year.
    Does the ink start to spread? Or does it still look natural just not as pronounced? I am very curious.

    Thanks

    1. Hi Luna, thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. The ink doesn't spread but it fades instead. Right now I can't really tell that I have done the procedure. My brows look just a tad darker than normal. You can't really tell that I have done the procedure. This isn't as long lasting as they claim it would be. It looks really nice for the first few months but I eventually have to still go for my regular brow threading.

  25. Hi Jac,

    I came across your blog because I am freaking out about the results of my brow resurrection 2.4. I did mine exactly 4 weeks back and I have never touched water since, because as advised stay away from water as long as possible. Today, I washed my face and decided to wipe my face in a towel. Lo and behold, I had only 10% of what I originally had on my right eyebrow, that I didn't dare to wip my left eyebrow and used a hair dryer to dry my left brow. When I called Browhaus, they said this sudden stripping was actually due 2 weeks ago, it was "dead" skin that should have dropped should I have washed my brows earlier. I told them, are you sure that with 2 touch ups (I signed for 2 touch ups, mine will be able to last even 1 year? They said, they will use darker dye, leave the dye longer yada yada. To be honest, I have close to no brow hair/ follicles at all. My hesitation with Browhaus is because I couldn't find a good therapist and my friend recommended me the one at Cathay. Her technic is indeed very good, but I rather bad technic and LONG LASTING. So once I found a recommendation, I signed 3 packages. My concern is what was your situation like even after you touch up? do you still see the strands of hair drawing that they did? If you say, your brows are a tad darker, but I don't have any brows to begin with, it's just money down the drain for me right?

    1. Hey Chelsea, thanks for leaving me a comment. Well it's over a year after my brow resurrection. I don't see any strand drawing at all, it looks like I never did my brow resurrection. Really it depends on the individual person, perhaps for your skin type the ink might hold on longer, I don't think you can be sure until after a few months. For me my discontent stems from the fact that after about 3 months after my touch up, I went to another Browhaus outlet, they suggested me to do a brow resurrection. The staff there thought I had not done one before. So what does that say about the touch up that they did for me? For me, it was a lesson learnt, I'd rather stick to drawing my brows with a brow pencil.

  27. Hi Jac,

    I just did my brows exactly 4 weeks ago, however till today, I haven't washed my brows with facial foam or let torrents or water run down my face. Yes, during this entire 4 weeks some sprinkling of water, or some droplets did roll from my forehead, but nothing major. Today was the first time I washed and lo and behold, a lot of my brow skin dropped off. I wiped my right brow, I guess it's scabbing, but like 10% of what I had on my first day is left my on my brows. I have very short and sparse brows, so having 10% left is as good as having nothing left to me. I called Browhaus Cathay, which is the one I did at and they told me that it'sthe skin that was supposed to drop 2 weeks ago, it's just like dried/ dead skin but not removed till i washed my face today. They assured me that during my touch up, the therapist can put more dye, use darker dye etc etc. I liked my therapist skills because, she was able to draw many thin and fine strands, vs thick and fat strands. I don't know if this a factor? I signed up 3 sessions with them, because I know the way my brows are, I might as well sign up for life. So I want to ask you, how much faded for you? Are the fake strands still there but lighter?, or are the fake strands gone and left with a fuzzy darker patch? I am so paranoid with this brows, that I didn't dare to wipe of my left brow, cos I didn't want to disturb or move the dead skin.

    1. Girl, you have a lot of self control. I couldn't wait for so long fully wash my face, perhaps that's why mine has faded faster. I just scrutinized my brows, no fuzzy dark patches and no fake strands. Hm I'm not sure about signing up for life, perhaps you want to try out that three session and see first whether you are satisfied. I still go to Browhaus, but I go there fir brow and upper lip threading. I still find that they do a good job. I go to the 100 am next to Amara hotel, so far they aren't pushy so I like it better.

    2. Right after I had my BR done, the initial few days, I received many compliments from friends about my eyebrows. I too was happy that I saved at least 5mins to draw my brows, and my brow-drawing skill was pretty bad to start with. I tend to overfill the color as I like defined-looking brows.

      And after only a week, I noticed the shape was starting to disappear (especially the ends of the brows).

      I called up for a touch up right away as I was really afraid there was going to be nothing left after 2 weeks.
      To my dismay, the receptionist told me I could only do a touch up, a month after my initial BR. I told her nothing would be left by the time I waited for 1 month, but she said it was normal and the skin would take time to heal. I used the build and fix religiously, carefully avoided the area around my brows whenever I washed my face or removed makeup.

      Every now and then, the area would itch and I will be trying hard not to touch it. And because I can't was the area just around my brows, pimples have started to grow because the skin couldn't be washed properly.
      Although I would save a lot of time having not to draw my brows, I think it is definitely not worth the money to do BR. I would rather be able to wash my face and clean my brows freely without having to worry about any color fading.

      I was initially still considering to go for a touch up since the BR had already cost so much. But now after reading Chelsea's comment, I feel exactly the same as her. That's because I have almost invisible sparse brows to begin with.

    3. Right after I had my BR done, the initial few days, I received many compliments from friends about my eyebrows. I too was happy that I saved at least 5mins to draw my brows, and my brow-drawing skill was pretty bad to start with. I tend to overfill the color as I like defined-looking brows.

      And after only a week, I noticed the shape was starting to disappear (especially the ends of the brows).

      I called up for a touch up right away as I was really afraid there was going to be nothing left after 2 weeks.
      To my dismay, the receptionist told me I could only do a touch up, a month after my initial BR. I told her nothing would be left by the time I waited for 1 month, but she said it was normal and the skin would take time to heal. I used the build and fix religiously, carefully avoided the area around my brows whenever I washed my face or removed makeup.

      Every now and then, the area would itch and I will be trying hard not to touch it. And because I can't was the area just around my brows, pimples have started to grow because the skin couldn't be washed properly.
      Although I would save a lot of time having not to draw my brows, I think it is definitely not worth the money to do BR. I would rather be able to wash my face and clean my brows freely without having to worry about any color fading.

    4. Hey Shirley, perhaps you should wait for a while and see what happpens to your brows after a few weeks or so. You might change your mind after a while about your touch up. I cleaned my brows after a few days because I couldn't stand it anymore, perhaps that is why mine faded quickly but I couldn't stand it. Do let me know what happens I hope your brows turn out okay.

  28. Hi Jacqueline, like to check, how many touch ups included for $800? I did the brow resurrection 2.5 6 days ago. Not feel satisfied. The strands are fading or dropping off with the dead skin.
    I went to the tampines one and was a Chinese national male who did for me. It feels like a scam for the price. Look fwd to your feedback.

  29. Hi there, how many touch ups for $800? I would like to check and see if they offer different prices depending on negotiation.
    I did BR 2.5 natural. Not happy with it. After 6 days looks like the color will drop with the dry skin. Sigh. Plus they are all so pushy.

  31. I kinda agree with starlite. The lines do drop off with the dead skin.

    Just one question: can you still do makeup on your eyebrows as per normal?

    1. Well for the first few months I didn't need to because it was defined. I didn't want to overdo my brows. But after it began to fade, I touched up the faded areas with my my eye brow pencil.

  33. Wow, I got BR last November, and let them talk me into buying another one for a very special price. I went to the one at GWC and they never answer the damn phone! What business always has their phone go to voice mail???? ANd they only sometimes call me back; sometimes they don't even return my voice messages.

    But I have this packate with them, and my brows have never been completely even and are fading, and I am thinking of going back. Which outlet should I go to?

    1. I'm currently going to the one at 100am right next to Amara but I'm only doing brow threading and upper lip threading. It's the most convenient for me. I get different therapist each time but I think they do an okay job. I've not done any BR anymore, I seriously think drawing my brows is a cheaper option.

  35. Hi Jacqueline!
    Thanks for sharing your experience on BR. I find it very very useful! :)

    I'm just wondering when did you started washing your face and brow?
    Thanks!

    1. I think you should continue washing your face just don't let the water touch your brows but it is very difficult, I gave up and washed my normal way less than a week though. Your brows will look natural in time :)

  36. Hi Jacqueline,

    I just did my touch up at Browhaus and I was wondering if aftercare is still needed for the brows? Could you share with me on your touch up after care? Hope don't have to avoid water contact all over again :\

    1. Hey Cherene, if you want your brow resurrection to last longer perhaps you could hold off getting water on your brows for perhaps a week? I suspect the reason mine faded rather quickly was because I didn't take as much care. That being said, it is rather difficult to not wash that area. As I said I didn't take special care, I went about doing my usual routine.

  37. Hey Jac, wished I read your blog b4 I did my BR2.5 with browhaus, i hv been drawing negative remarks from all my friends abt the state of my brows now, initially I thought all will be fine after 1 week and the color starts to lighten but boy was I wrong! It's the shape of the eyebrows and the browhaus technician who did it for me was not very well trained. I spent a bomb on this 2k to be exact and now this is the biggest regret of my life! My eyebrows looked totally different from the one she drew for me prior to the embroidery! I now hv a perpetual arch with no definition nor tail. It's just too straight line sloping upwards and looks wrong wrong wrong from all angles. The scam package they sold me includes 6 free touch ups and I'm wondering if I should go for the touch up...I really regret this and can't wait for my brows to grow back.

    1. That is a lot of money, wow I did not know they could be so expensive. Perhaps you can go back and ask them to draw your brows again during your touch up and tell them you are very unhappy with the brows they did for you the first time. Insist on a more experienced technician. My brows lasted for less than a year by the way in the end regular brow shaping and drawing of my eye brows with an eye brow pencil is more economical and safer. I wish you the best of luck.

  38. Omg yes, I say you run from the staff asap or only bring a certain amount you wanna spend there like (enough for your threading etc.) The staff are damn pushy!!! Can't believe I spent almost half my pay on my brows! 800++ goodness. I'm such a pushover too sighs. My colleague said she did hers @ some neighbor hood parlor in bishan 150$ max, still nice! and I felt like my brains exploded.

    1. Yeeling, hey there, I know what you mean, everyone kept telling me how cheap their brow tattooing was, I felt quite silly paying so much for it. Anyways, I go to the one 100 am. They stop trying to sell me the brow resurrection package, whew!
