Established in 2017.
The Brow Bar (previously Vancouver Brow Bar) provides clients with natural, balanced, flawless, and fuller-looking eyebrows using these semipermanent makeup techniques - Microblading, Ombre Powder, Nano Shading, and Combination. These innovative techniques create the most natural looking brows, regardless of the amount of hair present. We only use premium colour pigments that are formulated to match your original eyebrow colour, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them. This is suitable for anyone with thin, sparse, uneven eyebrows, or individuals who are tired of filling in their brows every day. This method lasts 1-3 years, and is ideal for all skin tones. The results are truly life-changing and we encourage clients who may have uneven or sparse brows due to a past history of Bell's Palsy, cancer, trauma, over-tweezing, or existing asymmetrical facial features to get this treatment done.
What makes us different?
We only book one new client per day. Providing excellent service is our priority. Each appointment is personalized to your preference and is adjusted to best suit your face shape, skin type, skin tone, and lifestyle. We do not start or finish the procedure until you are 100% happy with the colour, shape, and fullness of your new brows. Our priority is to to understand your objective and create a customized brow set for your desired result.
Joey is the founder and owner of The Brow Bar. Growing up, Joey was a keen student of science who was also intrigued with the makeup and beauty industry. While working at Vancouver General Hospital, Joey found herself daydreaming about what her true passions were in life. This inspired her to take a leap of faith to leave the laboratory behind to pursue a field that combines both science and beauty – Semipermanent Makeup. Ever since then, Joey has never looked back and finally found her true calling. Every day is a rewarding experience when working with amazing clients while enhancing their beauty and confidence.
In addition to her 6 certifications in semi-permanent makeup, Joey graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Medical Laboratory Sciences from the University of British Columbia in 2015. Her comprehensive background in human physiology and anatomy is an asset to her skills as a Semipermanent Makeup Artist. She is able to integrate both semipermanent makeup theory and biology of the skin to provide the best results. She was also involved with meticulous laboratory work where she learned valuable aseptic techniques. Clients can be assured that all equipment used are sterile and disinfected. Joey believes that maintaining the utmost clean environment is most important in client care and trust for the prevention of infection.
