When done well, a perfectly shaped and filled in eyebrow can highlight your features and draw attention to your eyes. The trouble is, it’s no easy feat whipping a set of unruly or barely there brows into shape. Luckily, we asked brow guru Sania Vucetaj, the owner of Sania’s Brow Bar in New York, to tell us how to score sleek arches, no matter what you’re starting with.

Happy Mother’s Day! We asked a few of our favorite women entrepreneurs to share the best lessons they learned from their mothers. We’ll be putting up the entire list later today but here are two great stories from Of a Kind founders Claire Mazur and Erica Cerulo.
Two sets of perfect brows: Claire Mazur and her mom
My mom taught me not to mess around when it comes to eyebrows. In high school I got too tweezer-happy one day and she was really, really upset. She marched me over to the apartment of a woman she knew who was a makeup artist, where I was subjected to a really intense one-on-one tutorial and walked out with my very own eyebrow pencil to correct the mess I had made. Did you know you should always use eyebrow pencils a shade lighter than your hair? I’m obsessed with #02 from Paul & Joe Beaute, which was introduced to me by Sania Vucetaj, who is the only person allowed to touch my brows these days. (Yes, she’s been vetted by my mother.) - Claire
My mom taught me not to dye your hair until you have to. During the Spice Girls era, I wanted chunky, reddish highlights desperately. I was pretty impressed with myself for wanting something more interesting than the blonde streaks that everyone else was getting. My mom warned me that I would have decades to dye my hair, but, instead of forbidding me completely, she made me wait for six months. Obviously by then I had lost interest. - Erica
