Beyonce has this man to thank
Much has been made of Beyonce’s transformation into alter-ego Sasha Fierce: the leotards, the booty-shaking dance, the no-more-nice-girl ‘tude. Of course, this all took a team of image-makers, and not to be left out is her eyebrow man, Damone Roberts, who’s been working with the star for the past few years. (He and his right-hand man, Armond, even did some brow detail the day of her wedding.)
The strong arches Beyonce sports on the I am…Sasha Fierce album cover are emblematic of Robert’s aesthetic—over-plucking is clearly not in his lexicon. The LA-based Roberts, whose clients also include Cameron Diaz and America Ferrara (even Britney Spears is using his products on her current tour) opened a Fifth Avenue location last year and flies into NYC every five weeks or so.
As a veteran of the quest for perfect brow who’s tried everyone from the ladies at the local nail salon to the famed Eliza Petrescu at Bergdorfs, I personally haven’t found anyone better. (Eliza browbeat me so much about my at-home tweezing that I never returned). Roberts doesn’t yell, he works with your natural shape and even coaxed some regrowth in a bald spot with some of his “Brow Gain” product. Although he’s not a bargain (first-time visits with him are $125 and maintenance visits are $80), his staffers, or “brow divas,” as they are called, do charge less.
And where else is the bathroom decorated with celebrity autographs, including Beyonce’s above—ahem—the throne?
