A PROFESSIONAL brow technician has gone viral after revealing a potential client begged for help after refusing to pay her rate.
When it comes to all things hair and beauty, sometimes it’s better to pay that little extra – and this, unfortunately, is something one person learnt the hard way.
Keen to give their brows a little makeover, the beauty lover approached BGB. Brows, an eyebrow technician based in North London, the UK.
”Hey babe, how much for ombré brows?” the person slid into DMs on the brand’s Instagram page.
The whizz then replied, saying she will charge £140 – however, the potential client did not think of this as an appropriate price.
”Oh wow that’s quite expensive,” the person thought.

”I know another artist that does it for less,” they said before wondering if BGB. Brows would be happy to drop the price.
Not willing to lose any money, the brow tech, who also specialises in make-up, said she wasn’t interested in charging less.
”Oh no unfortunately, my prices are fixed,” she apologised.
Left with an answer they did not want to hear, the social media user replied by saying they will go for the cheaper option.

But, turns out, this was a huge mistake on their part, as the ombré brows they had wanted were completely butchered.
In a desperate need to get them fixed, the person slid into BGB. Brows DMs again – and the tone seemed to have changed.

”Hey babe… just wanted to ask, would you be able to fix something like this??”
The beauty lover then proceeded to share a close-up image of the disastrous fail – an eyebrow that didn’t appear ombré and also had visible and harsh strokes of hair.
To make matters even worse, the whizz, who had allegedly charged them less, had also marked the thick lines way above her natural arch.
One social media user commented: ”Please tell me you said you will fix it for £280 [laughing emoji].”
Another laughed: ”They got them done quickly, same day.”
Fellow beauty lovers also wondered why the person was reluctant to pay £140 when the service is more expensive at other places.

”£140??? I would have snatched that offer right out of your hand!!! (£300+ where I live),” a viewer revealed.
However, someone else hit back saying: ”she might not have that kinda money to spend on brown [brows] ofc she would go to the cheaper one be respectful [sic].”
