What woman doesn’t love getting her hair done. I’ve been really blessed to be sponsored by some of the best salons in Singapore and Dubai for my entire entertainment career. I must say though, I have never seen the art of hairdressing taken to the level that the team at Maurice Meade (right here in Perth) do. They make a trip to the salon practically science and you know the best thing about science, it’s very exact. You know what you’re going to get and your hair comes out exactly as you asked. One less stress in my life is great!

So here was my hair BEFORE and AFTER:

(*I’m wearing my DIY Chanel blazer. Full tutorial coming soon).

So this is how your Maurice Meade first session rolls. You’re welcomed into the salon and placed in a luxurious waiting area. Your colourist/stylist comes to collect you then talks to you attentively about what you’re looking to get done. She then gets a pink and orange cloth and places it near your face to demonstrate how different pink and orange toned colours will affect your appearance/complexion.

She then gets a Kerastase scalp camera and takes an image to diagnose your scalp type. I’d had this done by Ponds for my skin before but never for my hair. It was a revelation and then she used a chart to show me where I lay in the range of healthy scalps. Thankfully my scalp is pretty healthy.

From here your hairdresser is able to work out what products will work best with your hair and how to maintain a healthy scalp.

I then filled out a history of my hair health and we were ready to go!

I have to say I really believe that this sort of care for my hair made me trust the hairdresser Sara so much and true to her word, the colour she gave me was EXACTLY the same as the image I’d shown her on my Instagram. I was so impressed. She literally glanced at it and two hours later it was on my head!

It was a wonderful experience and the team at Maurice Meade in Garden city were so professional. Special thanks to Sara and Charlotte for the new tresses and of course massive thanks to Maurice Meade.

I have paid for this treatment before. I have flown over from abroad for this treatment and I am so in love with what Browhaus do, I am sincerely looking into bringing the company over to Australia!


From the time I went through puberty I became aware that my eyes were so dark and my eyebrows so sparse. I have a very high forehead and without my eyebrows drawn in, the space from my eyelids to my hairline looks like it’s almost half of my face! It’s insane! #firstworldproblems I know.

Don’t believe me. Here is a picture of me sans make up:

These are my brows after my Browhaus Brow Resurrection:

*Now do note they are newly done here and fade down by 2 shades after the first 10 days. I also opted for the “Define” treatment. You may want to go for “Natural” for something lighter.

Below: These are my brows now, 3 weeks later, with no eye makeup.

The first time I got my brow resurrection done was in April 2013. The guy I was dating then was so impressed at how much better I looked without makeup and my new brows, he actually said it was a “vast improvement” (needless to say I am no longer dating this tactless wonder). I didn’t how know to take the comment, as a compliment or an insult, so I just took it as a compliment to the team at Browhaus, particularly the therapist Lydia Li Xia Yan. This is Lydia and I below:

Every Brow Resurrection Define comes with a complimentary touch up within 3 months to redefine the semi-permanent treatment but as I was living in Dubai I wasn’t able to last time. The months whizzed past and by June 2014, I was well in need of a touch up. I was so blessed and ecstatic when my management in Singapore, Fly Entertainment, managed to book me in. I am so passionate about the treatment, I had been bugging them for months that I needed to come to Singapore just to get it done. Yes, I have flown once from Dubai and now once from Australia for a Browhaus Brow Resurrection, it’s that damn good.

I think the thing I love the most is that I can wear only some BB cream and with my brows resurrected, I am ready to walk out the door. I don’t have to be scared that people will be shocked that I am not the same “Simone Heng” they see on Google images when they see me sans make up. This used to happen a lot in Dubai.

So by now you’re wondering, what is this Brow Resurrection exactly? Brow Resurrection is a signature semi-permanent treatment, an advanced brow embroidery technique that is unique to Browhaus. Each strand is constructed to give the illusion of actual hair strands. Browhaus also uses 100% vegetable dye and a top-grade anesthetic, making it a completely safe, comfortable and near-painless treatment.  Hence, why my eyebrows have never faded blue and don’t look like a McDonald’s is sign drawn half way up my forehead (or a fivehead as I like to think of mine, because it’s so damn big).

The way the treatment is done, it creates a defined yet “non-golden arches” look because every single strand is thicker at the root and tapered off at the tips to mimic real brow hair. How do they do that? You may ask…Let me walk you through it like it’s one of my step-by-step DIY tutorials:

First the therapist draws on your brows with a super fine eyebrow pencil. Every single hair is defined to show you how the 3D-treatment will look when it’s done. This way you can see the exact shape you will get.

Here’s what my shape looked like at the end and I was happy with it. I had Lydia (by total coincidence) as my therapist in April 2013, so I trusted her completely this time. I later found out she’s one of Browhaus’ most prized therapists for Brow Resurrection. She also tolerates me speaking infantile Mandarin to her (she’s from China) and I love seeing her giggle.

From here the eyebrows are numbed with numbing cream and covered with some cling film type material. This is left for 15-20minutes until your brow area is numb. During this time, the Browhaus team will ask you if you have plans to dye your hair and if not, they will recommend you a shade of vegetable dye for your brow embroidery which best matches it. I didn’t know if I’d get to visit Singapore again in 90 days for my touch-up and I wanted my treatment to last longer than last time so I opted for a slightly darker dye this time.

Now from what I am told is going on here (I barely “feel” what is going on here, because it’s almost painless), Lydia is using the finest multi-pins to craft life-like brow strands into my brows following the lines of the shape she drew in with pencil earlier. The vegetable dye is then deposited into the skin. This process is done within 40-45 minutes.

As you can see. I couldn’t be more happy with how my brows turned out. I suffered only 1 week of minor scabbing and took home my after care kit and followed it religiously. They recommend no swimming, sauna, steam baths or excessive sweaty exercise (I gave up my long runs) for 2 weeks. No facials for at least 2 weeks and of course no tanning (which let’s face it, none of us smart girls who want good skin do anyway)!

Thankyou so much Browhaus for another reliable treatment. I had so much fun giggling with Lydia that I got the boyfriend threaded straight after. He needed some giggle sand grooming! He said the brows were amazing and not blue as he feared! LOL. I cannot recommend this treatment enough to women in the public eye especially, who have no brows. I will be going back every year for this.
