How to get the perfect eyebrow with Precis Brows

How to shape eyebrows guide with Precis Brows

Rhonda Allison Pumpkin facial

When I was younger, about middle school age, I had very full eyebrows and wasn’t sure how to shape them. I was extremely self conscious of how big they were and despised them. I had a friend who wanted to wax my eyebrows but my mother wouldn’t let her do it. My sweet mother insisted that I had “Audrey Hepburn” eyebrows and thought they were beautiful. Being the sassy, young teen that I was, I was very upset over this. Looking back, I’m very grateful to my mother for not letting my friend do my brows! I would have ended up looking like Pamela Anderson circa the 1990’s. AAAAAH! Over plucked brows are a thing of the past and natural brows are here to stay!

I have always done my own eyebrows and they have been extremely hard to maintain. That is why I am ever so grateful that I met Alanna of Précis Brows. She is the first person that I have trusted to touch my eyebrows and will be the only one! Alanna talked me through each step of brow maintenance and taught me how to use her Precis Brow products. I honestly can’t believe how simple it is to get elegant and natural looking eyebrows can be thanks to her products. My favorite is the stencil which makes it a breeze to get a perfectly shaped brow. Please, I beg you, go see Alanna in her new Salon. Your brows will thank you!

A Master Brow artist and salon owner of Salon Précis … a classic beauty stop, located at 360 S State Street in Orem (Mid-Town 360) My goal is to change lives, one brow at a time.
My journey for beauty and empowering women began years ago. After working for Anastasia my passion for brows became an obsession! It wasn’t enough for me to know how to correctly shape the brows, I wanted every professional in the industry to do them correctly. I ended up creating a curriclum for hair schools to begin teaching brow artistry. Having graduated from Paul Mitchell Schools, I started there. I also created my own brow product line (Precis Brows) sold at Salon Précis and soon to be carried in Salons across Utah.
1. Shape your brows according to YOUR bone structure. Don’t follow the trends just because it’s in. They may not work for you.
2. Just because FULL BROWS are in, if you have petite features you may not be be able to support a Kim Kardashian brow. You may be closer to Reese Witherspoon. In that case, wear the brow size/shape that fits your specific bone structure. If you’re not sure what that is, you should probably come see me!
3. Thin brows actually age you! A little fuller, correctly shaped brow can make you look more youthful!
4. Your brows may be sisters, but they should be twins! When I shape you, I do everything in my power to make them perfectly symmetrical. The more symmetrical the brow, the prettier you are! Who doesn’t want that?
5. Do the simple things that make a big difference in the way you look and feel! Brows is one of those things. 15 minutes with me can change your life!
I also had the opportunity to have Shelby, of Salon Précis, give me their seasonal Pumpkin facial. Oh my goodness, I had the most healthy, glowing skin the next day!! I loved it so much that I ended up buying the Pumpkin Rinse. It smells wonderful and has done wonders for my face. In my early twenties I had terrible skin and know what it’s like to be self conscious of problematic skin! Good products are absolutely key to having healthy skin and I will definitely be back to see Shelby to keep my facial skin clear and radiant! Shelby is just the sweetest and extremely knowledgeable. I highly reccomend visiting her and getting a luxurious facial!
Get to know Shelby and why the pumpkin facial is great for your skin:
My mom did hair for as long as I can remember, so I practically grew up in the beauty industry. I didn’t have a passion for hair, but I knew I wanted tobe apart of helping women feel beautiful in their own skin. I went to nail school in high school and fell in love! After high school I went to college but didn’t feel that same passion. So I toured every Esthetics school in the state and finally found my match at Acadyia. I love the mindset of women empowering one another rather than bringing each other down. I made it my goal to give each woman who was on my table confidence and peace with themselves. I soon fell in love with facial treatments and Full body waxing. I kind of felt like a nerd because I would get so excited about the skins reactions to different treatments and products. You can often find me at the supermarket or cosmetic counter reading the ingredient labels on all skin care products! Haha my bedside table is all product guides and treatment protocols. It is safe to say I obsessed with all aspects of skin care!  I was lucky enough to be apart of Salon Précis from the start, with this involvement I was able to choose our products and services we offer.
Pumpkin Facial-
I offer the pumpkin facial during the transition from summer to fall/winter. This facial includes 2 cleanses, enzyme treatment, mask, corrective treatment and massage. This facial is best for Aging clients but can be customized to fit any skin type. Pumpkin is known as Nature’s natural collagen and contains the highest content of naturally occurring Vitamin A & Beta Carotene than any other fruit! (Vitamin A is what retinol and RentinA are derived from and is a potent anti aging ingredient). Along with the anti-aging properties, the Enzyme treatment will leave your skin feeling smooth and bright. Enzymes are protein dissolving, so they digest all the dead dull skin cells that are clinging to your skins surface and also promote cell renewal! Which equals- Skin smooth as a baby’s bottom!Pumpkin Products
Pumpkin Cleanser- This is a creamy cleanser that not only smells amazing but also has active ingredients you can feel on the skin. This cleanser has Lactic Acid which is an Alpha-hydroxy Acid derived from milk that helps the skin retain moisture. This product also has Clove and Ginger which are moisture rich oils, but also help with the lovely smell. Pumpkin has a high content of vitamin A and beta carotene, two potent antioxidant ingredients. Combined with natural surface lipid reducers and essential oils, this natural, all-purpose daily cleanser not only provides a wonderful pumpkin spice aroma, but is gentle enough for ultra sensitive skin while providing a deep pore cleanse.  Great for normal to oily skin types.Pumpkin Rinse-
Pumpkin Rinse is designed to freshen and tone skin after cleansing as well as provide a balance of moisture that hydrates and plumps skin. Due to the naturally occurring nutrients in pumpkin, this pro collagen toner will bathe skin with valuable antioxidant and rejuvenating support. Pumpkin Rinse is a valuable second-phase cleansing agent for ultra sensitive to normal, combination skin types.

Pumpkin E Serum-
Many people get scared when I suggest an oil or serum fro their skin but there is no reason to automatically assume oil will break you out. We often forget we live in a desert! Many of us may be over-stripping our skins necessary oil which in the end causes our skin to over compensate and produce more oils. If you are using oils that your skin can absorb (and not just sit on the skins surface) you will experience lovely, soft skin. Pumpkin E Serum is a silky, velvety, year-round “super serum” that supplies skin with potent antioxidants and valuable hydration. Pumpkin E Serum contains a blend of flavanoids and vital nutrients for much needed support. Ideal for tired, lifeless, dehydrated skin, Rhonda Allison’s Pumpkin E Serum is a very concentrated oil containing Tocopherol D-Alpha (Vitamin E) and the natural extracts of pumpkin seed oil which include Beta-Carotene, Zinc, Salicylic Acid, and Retinol.

What do I like best about my job-
I love helping others feel comfortable in their own skin by offering treatments and products that will help them reach their skin care goals. I have chosen a product line that is great for every skin type and every budget. I love hearing ”This is the best my skin has ever looked!” and seeing people actually enjoying their reflection in the mirror! The best
part of my day is when my guest give that huge sigh of relaxation, that is why I do what I do 🙂


Have a wonderful Autumn day,
