Beauty School: Browbar

Two siblings' plucky new spot in Inman Park


“I’m obsessive about my brows,” says Sadaf Kherani, who was born in Pakistan and raised in Marietta. Along with her brother Fahad Haroon, Kherani runs Browbar, which specializes in threading, an ancient Middle Eastern technique. Using a string placed on both sides of an eyebrow section, threading quickly removes hair by simply twisting it out at the follicle level. (The salon also offers conventional waxing and tweezing options, along with facials and eyelash-specific services.)

For Kherani and Haroon, Browbar’s Inman Park location set the tone for their shop’s decor. To avoid the harsh, aseptic feel of some beauty salons and to reflect their hip environs, they populated Browbar with an ornate birdcage, chairs with turquoise animal prints, and art deco mirrored tables, which they found in antique shops such as Kudzu. Coral and seafoam green walls help undercut the space’s industrial vibe, while damask-print wallpaper adds a playful touch. “It’s more of a boutiquey place,” Kherani explains. Indulge in a $20 threaded eyebrow shaping and finish it off with a soothing Clovertree balm while contemplating the results in one of Browbar’s gold rococo mirrors. 240 North Highland Avenue, Suite C-1, 404-856-0637, browbar­

    It's been a few months, and I definitely need to get my eyebrows re-done.

    Your eyes may be the window to your soul, but your eyebrows are the doorway to your heart. HA.
