Before and after brow waxing, at Sarah McDaniel Aesthetics in Fort Smith Arkansas

With a new round of highschool grads this year, I’ve put together a few tips for finding a brow artist for those leaving for college far away, or my clients moving to another state this summer, or those of you just too far away to come see me 😉 Brow waxing is important – don’t just go anywhere!

1. Search Instagram and Google for brow waxing artists on your area. We’re proud of the work we do, and usually have lots of before and after photos. I would say there’s really not a wrong way or right way to do brows. It’s an art, and every one has a different style. You just want to find one that really speaks to YOU! If you can’t find before and after photos, email the salon and ask for some. If they don’t have any, move on. You don’t want to gamble with your eyebrows.

2. Word of mouth is the BEST way to find an aesthetician. Love your friends eyebrows? Ask her where she got them done!

3. Do not hesitate to ask about their sanitation procedures before you go in. Your aesthetician should have a clean room, a clean wax pot, wear clean gloves for every service, and use a clean wax stick every time they dip into the wax pot. Double dipping is not good!

4. We have a pretty good network, and I was able to send a client to a dear friend of mine on the West Coast for the summer, where I know she’ll be in good hands. I’ve had referrals here in Arkansas from friends in Chicago. Basically, it’s a small world and we’re always happy to help a client out. Ask us if we know anyone where you’re headed. Chances are, we do 🙂

Peach fuzz, fine lines, and Dermaplaning.

A common question in my studio is, “what can I do about the peach fuzz on my face?” Well, you have 2 options. You can wax it off, although it’s hard to get a clean removal of the fine hair with wax. OR, you can have a dermaplaning (also called epidermal leveling) treatment done. It’s my #1 most popular facial!

Here’s the lowdown on what dermaplaning is, and what the benefits are for YOUR skin!

What is it? – A gentle form of manual exfoliation with a sterilized blade.

What are the benefits? – The removal of surface dead skin cells and fine peach fuzz, with zero downtime and discomfort. Leave with glowing, vibrant, hair free skin. Good for people with broken capillaries who can’t handle the suction from microdermabrasion. Also beneficial for fine lines, and old acne scarring. Your makeup will go on SO SMOOTH.

Does it hurt? – No, not at all. It’s a very gentle scraping that feels similar to a cat tongue.

Will the hair grow back darker or thicker? – No. Shaving will not change hair density, and it will grow back exactly like it looks now.

Who would this treatment NOT be good for?  – Anyone with acneic skin.

How long does it last? – Everyone’s hair grows at a different rate, but you can usually expect several weeks of smooth skin. We recommend a facial every 4 weeks for optimal results.

How long does it take? – This is one of my 45 minute lunchtime facials. If we’re adding a brow shaping, you can expect to be at the studio for 1 hour.

You can schedule your treatment online 24/7 here, or reach me at the studio Tues-Fri at 918-869-7714
