When I was working in West London, I blogged about how I had found a great little salon that only charged £4 for eyebrow threading. When looking around central London it seemed very rare to find anywhere charging less than £12-15ish.
So when I stumbled across this little place I was pretty happy. I had resorted to plucking my eyebrows for the last couple of months but the results are nowhere near as good as threading. It was just working out to be too expensive to maintain on the Central London prices.
But tucked upstairs in the Plaza Shopping Centre on Oxford Street is Heena Beauty, who specialise in eyebrow threading and charge only £5.
The place is basic, a row of chairs in front of a mirror and usually very quiet – which doesn’t really instil confidence but I took the plunge and went for it. I was happy with the results, I didn’t have to make an appointment so I could just pop in on a lunch break. Very convenient.
My only concern is that due to it’s tucked away location (if you go into the Uniqlo store in the centre and exit through the upper floor, you will find it just across the walkway) it might not get enough custom to stay in business in the central location, whilst charging such low prices!
I hope for their sake that it does stay open (and for the sake of my eyebrows) so I will keep going there and may even try out their waxing services. If you try it, let me know what you think?
