can you recommend a good place for eyebrow shaping?

heyy everyone, first post here, i was wondering if anyone knew a really good place to get your eyebrows shaped.
for example say you've been growing them out for a couple of months and want to get them re-shaped.
somewhere where you can show them a picture, and if your eyebrows are long enough, they'll be able to mimic it, somewhere skilled not a $2 brow job
anywhere in vancouver/surrey/burnaby etc,

preferrably a unisex place,
if anyone can recommend a good place please post thank youu!

btw if anyone wants to see the shape i am looking for, to better answer my question, please pm me and i will show you a picture, the reason I dont want to post it here is because i know the person in the picture personally and i dont want to publicly post a picture of them on a forum website :P

and they got theirs done in a different country and now they just clean it up themselves, so i cant get it done in that place haha

Kinda weird to be asking this on a male dominated forum.... But then again, who knows, maybe a lot of guys here get their brows done.
There's a few brow bars i've noticed in yaletown/downtown.
This place comes to mind: Bombay Brow Bar$|$ Eyebrow Beauty Services
They seem to have a good variety of services for brows.

On another note, found this on their Facebook:

Bombay Brow Bar. A little pricey but they do a nice job. I was at their media event at their latest opening at the Shangri-La on Friday and they've really come a long way since their first store in Yaletown.

Really great business ran by 2 sisters. I definitely support!

Bombay is overpriced. I get my brows done for 5 bucks and they always come out perfect. Mona Lisa on the corner of 49th and Fraser. As for Muni. I've been going to her for the past year and a half and she's great!

Don't go to Benefit Brow Bar at Holt Renfrew. $23 for a mediocre job compared to a decent-good job $2-5 at any threading place.

I wouldn't pay 20$+ on eyebrow shaping unless your eyebrows are completely grown out/wild/untouched

As a guy with thick black brow, I had bad experiences with Indian threadings. They make my brows very sharp and defined. Plucking is the way to go. Now if only there's places that does brow plucking....

I used to go there too! or to Lovely's further up Fraser. My brother actually went to Mona Lisa's a lot before I did.

I've paid $20 (with 15% discount) to get my brows waxed at the Don Spa on West Broadway and I thought it was kind of ridiculous. I live in Surrey now though so the most I pay is $7 threading/waxing.

I think paying $20+ to get your eyebrows done is pretty hefty, but if you don't mind spending the money then go for it!

are you asking for them just to clean it off? My bro just says that when he goes and they do a fine job.

I haven't found a good eyebrow place here in Vancouver at all. It's depressing. A lot of threading places aren't bad, but every face is different.

Hair Image Beauty Salon, they used to be on Rupert and 1st but have since moved to Parker and Gilmore in Burnaby, I think it's like $7 now for eyebrows and unisex - hope this helps! Not too sure if this is the right number for them, 604-253-4247 - they're closed on Sundays!
