Mirror, mirror, on the wall, where in L.A. can you find the best eyebrows of all? We’ll tell you! Here are our top five picks for the best brow bars in Los Angeles.
1 Damone Roberts
It's a simple fact: Damone Roberts is the MAN when it comes to eyebrows. In addition to a recent collaboration with MAC, the brow guru who has spent his life in search of "the perfect arch" has appeared on TLC's "Ten Years Younger" and worked on some of the most beautiful people in the business, from Madonna and Beyonce to Gwyneth Paltrow and Taraji P. Henson. The aestheticians in his Beverly Hills salon have been trained in the same manner, so expect to get A-list brows from any of the senior artists in his arsenal. Our go-to gal is Mehae Kim.

3 Robyn Cosio at Sally Hershberger Los Angeles
Booking an appointment with Robyn Cosio might be tough—this world-renowned makeup artist and eyebrow specialist is only available at Sally Hershberger's Los Angeles salon Thurs. - Sat. 10 a.m.- 2:00 p.m.—but the wait will be worth it. She is highly sought after as a recognized authority on eyebrows and makeup and has made appearances on The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, Fox and MTV. In addition, she has designed makeup for Donna Karan, Calvin Klein and Bill Blass and authored the book, The Eyebrow. Robyn’s mastery of both the brow and makeup application is unparalleled and has given her access to some of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood and New York: Nicole Kidman, Kate Bosworth, Marisa Tomei, Christina Applegate, Jamie Lee Curtis, Gina Gershon, Vanessa Redgrave, Bryce Dallas Howard, Cat Deeley, Lesley Stahl, Laura San Giacomo and Elizabeth Perkins. Robyn does not create a “signature brow.” Instead, she provides sophisticated analysis of each client’s face, creating a tailor-made brow. Make an appointment with Robyn a must.

4 Claudia Connelly
Claudia Connelly's West L.A. salon is perfect for her affluent and influential clientele—it's discreet and unassuming while still being supremely elegant. Connelly, the founder of Claudia Cosmetics, was born and raised in Romania, where she studied acting in college and afterwards worked as an actress. When she got married, she moved to the United States with her husband and set out on a new career path. Starting out as an actress in Romania, Connelly often had to do her own makeup for the shows. Painting had always been a hobby of hers, so she already had a great sense of color and perspective. All of these experiences led to her desire to become an esthetician, and later a brow guru. In Los Angeles, Connelly got her start as a professional esthetician at the prestigious Anastasia Beverly Hills. Here she perfected her technique as Anastasia pushed her to be her best. This is also where she learned the ins and outs of running and expanding a business. Connelly was in high demand at the salon, steadily building up a following of celebrities and posh Angelenos alike. After several years at Anastasia Beverly Hills, Connelly followed her heart and decided to branch out on her own. In addition to having a serene salon, Connelly herself is a rare find thanks to her personalized attention, always spending the maximum amount of time with her clients as possible, and building relationships both in and outside of the salon, as well as her belief that brows have to be crafted to each individual, always keeping face shape and primarily bone structure in mind when shaping.

5 Anastasia Beverly Hills Salon
Anyone who's ever had their brows done is familiar with Anastasia Beverly Hills. Romanian-born entrepreneur Anastasia Soare was the first to introduce “brow-shaping” to salons in the US—based on her patented “Golden Ratio” method—and is widely credited for fueling the multimillion-dollar business that now surrounds the category. Popularized through Soare’s customer relationships with many of the world’s most recognizable faces—Oprah, Naomi Campbell, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Victoria Beckham, and Penelope Cruz, to name a few—the “brow revolution” she ignited has become a landmark contribution to beauty history. A trip to her Beverly Hills salon is the golden rule for anyone with taste—and money.
