Panzie, Candy Brow Bar Shares 3 Things We Shouldn’t Do to our Eyebrows

I do not spend a lot of money on manicures and pedicures. It’s just not a big deal to me, but I love a good eyebrow shape up. I like to treat myself once a month because it really changes the look of a person’s face. I was thrilled when I was able to meet Panzie Richardson, owner of Candy Brow Bar and get the celebrity treatment.

Eye 1Panzie, how long you been doing eyebrows? 4 years.

How did you get involved with eyebrows? It was a happy accident. I went to Aveda for skin care, to be an esthetician. I didn’t want to touch anyones brows. One day in class, I had 3 services to do that I could not give away. All 3 people wanted their brows shaped. When I got finished they all looked great. I had no clue I could do brows. Then I started asking for brow customers and started doing them all the time. When I graduated, I started working at Eyebrows. Moved here and I am still doing eyebrows and I love it.

I’d never heard of tinting and noticed you applied it to my eyebrows. What is Tinting? This tint is a semi-permanent, so if you workout and sweat or walk out in the rain, it will not drip. If you sleep on your pillow case, it will not smear or smudge. You can wash over it, but to get the longest wear I tell clients to wash around it. The tinting last about two weeks. It will look like you have on make-up without having to do anything.

Eve 1What is the Marble Facial Stone? It closes the hair follicles back, so you won’t clog your pores when you touch your skin. It’s also really cold on the skin, so it’s very soothing like a mini massage. It can also be used for sinus and migraines issues.

Why do you think it’s an important accent? It shapes your face, because if they are too far apart – everything will look to big. If they are done right you will look good without makeup.

Many people try to do their eyebrows themselves. What are they doing wrong? 

  • Over tweezing, which ends up making their eyebrows either too far apart or non-existent.
  • Too much concealer, I call it the “Atlanta Brow”. There should not be a visible line above or below your eyebrows. If you use concealer, blend it in completely.
  • Using black eyeliner – eyebrows do not look good when they are drawn on.

We all have someone who we are just over the moon about working with. Whose eyebrows have you shaped that shocked you? Delicia Cordon (Owner of DeCordon), I would have never imagined I would have an opportunity to do her brows. I follow her and even bought from her line.

Who are your dream clients?  My top 3 are: 1) Michelle Obama 2) Oprah 3) Beyonce

Atlanta is the reality show hub. Are there any celebrities you have been able to work with? I have been able to work with Tiny (Family Hustle), Shekinah (Family Hustle), Toya (Tiny & Toya), and Kim (RHOA).

EYE 3I loved the way my eyebrows looked when she finished. She tinted, waxed and shaped them. I am officially a “Candy Girl” A  typical session is only 10-15 minutes and you can go  3 – 4 weeks between touch ups.

The Candy Brow Bar is located in North Dekalb Mall, in Atlanta, GA.

    Thanks for sharing your experience! I am a regular for my eyebrows, every two weeks. My hair grows fast. I get them threaded and I decided to try tinting for the first time on Friday and I loved the results!

    Bernetta she does awesome work and I hadn’t heard of brow tingting either! As I’ve gotten older my outer brow area has gotten thinner which is not pretty! I’ll have to make a visit to see her the next time I’m in ATL! Thanks for sharing!

    Oh, she does a great job! It’s so true. No makeup or hairstyle can do for a woman’s face what great eyebrows can do!
