New York City's Top Brow Bars

It’s no beauty secret anymore: the brow’s the thing. A well-groomed pair of eyebrows will accentuate your natural beauty and create a frame for your face. The NYC brow bar game has erupted over the last several years, with eyebrow-specific salons popping up in every neighborhood. Whether you’re into threading, waxing, or plain-old plucking, we’ve got some of the best in the business rounded up for you to try.

Sania’s Brow Bar 

Sania Vucetaj is one of New York’s preeminent brow goddesses. Her Flatiron salon offers eyebrow consultations with Sania or a member of her staff, in which you’ll be tweezed (she’s a stickler for the tweezers) and put on a “growth program” that will suit whatever look you’re going for. Appointments come with something of a steep price tag, but the individualized service and Sania’s unbeatable expertise will make your brows very happy. 48 W. 20th St., 212-247-1129,

Pinky’s Village Spa

Pinky's Village Spa

With eyebrow threading for $15 and waxing for $17, Pinky’s offers affordable brow services in the East Village. Pinky and her staff give fast, courteous service in their funky red and white studio. They also offer tinting, if you’re looking for brows that pop. 61 E. 3rd St., 646-690-2217,

Hibba NYC 

With a full buffet of body waxing and sugaring (waxing’s all-natural cousin), Hibba is another brow-shaping go-to, with 3 locations citywide. Service with their Browologists is friendly and affordable, with detailed tips about how to get the most out of each appointment (for example, rub castor oil on your brows if you’re looking to grow them out). Hibba also sets itself apart by offering microblading, in which a tiny needle tattoos temporary eyebrow hairs onto your skin for bolder, thicker brows that last for months. Locations in SoHo, Columbus Circle, and near Grand Central,



Nolita’s Browhaus offers an intimidating selection of options if you don’t often frequent brow bars. But that’s what makes them specialists. They can do a Color Tweak, a Modern Tweeze, a threading session, or a combo, whether you’re looking for these services à la carte or as a package. They have programs like Basic Brow Shaping, Browgraphy, and Brow Resurrection, in which you receive microblading treatment to fill in brows that are thin or overplucked. If you love the results and travel internationally, Browhaus has locations throughout Asia! 381 Broome St., 347-897-0856,

Joey Healy 

With a coveted 5 stars on his Yelp page, Joey Healy has achieved New York Brow greatness at his Greenwich Village studio (P.S.: he has quite a pair himself). He offers expert consultations, brow trims, tweezing, and the full Monty, the Eyebrow Blueprint. Let Healy take a look at your eyebrows and transform them one tweeze at a time. 51 University Pl., 212-477-2444, 


Maya Salon threading

This tiny Village brow bar and waxing parlor provides threading for only $8! If that weren’t incentive enough, they have friendly staff that know their brows and work quickly to achieve your desired shape. And at Maya, tinting is only $15. 3 Greenwich Ave., 212-243-7354,
