Linda Ruberto, local esthetician and makeup artist, believes that for men and women alike, the eyebrows are the single most important and most interesting feature of the face. She feels that brows make an important statement and will either attract or distract, affecting the first impression you make on others.
Linda moved to the Central Coast from Minnesota two years ago, after selling a large day spa and salon in the Twin Cities area. Wanting to simplify life, she opened a private skincare, waxing, and massage practice on Grand Avenue in Arroyo Grande, where fabulous eyebrow design is the main focus. It’s called—what else?—Star Brows.
Linda recalls, “When I first arrived in the Five Cities area, I expected a much more sophisticated spa culture. But, I had to go to Beverly Hills to get my own brows done. Not that there aren’t hundreds of stylists and estheticians in the area, but after painstakingly training hundreds of employees in the art of brow design, a five-minute ‘touch-up’ wasn’t going to do it.”
About the brow-design process, Linda says:
“Getting your brows shaped by a professional brow designer and makeup artist should be relaxing, pleasant, and pain-free. When you look in the mirror after your service, your first response should be ‘WOW!’
“Everyone has seen examples of tragically misshapen, over-tweezed brows. Brows that are too thin can add years to your appearance and often will not grow back.
“I’ve developed a special technique called Brow Art. It’s a three-step process using Graphing (looking at the facial symmetry and structure), Hair Removal (waxing, trimming, and tweezing), and Colorization (tinting, brow makeup, shadows, concealing, and contouring) to create a perfectly unique shape for each individual.
“Some brows take several appointments over a period of time to perfect. The hair may need to grow back in certain areas, and making adjustments to balance both brows is essential.”
Fabulous brow design and expert precision, with a friendly, small town feel, express the spa culture Linda loves and brings to the Central Coast!
