Conveniently located just a stroll from Hornchurch Tube station, this salon offers a range of hair, skin and eye treatments. Services include threading, waxing, bleaching, massages and manicures and pedicures.
The colour left on for my HD brows done two days ago has already faded off completely! Gutted.
I had an appointment with Honey's Hair & Beauty for eyebrow microblading and, unfortunately, I was not happy with my experience.
I had previously had my eyebrows microbladed by a private beauty specialist and I can say that my experience here was much more professional and personal than at Honey's Hair and Beauty.
My treatment finally commenced 20 minutes after my appointment time and I was sat in a very uncomfortable, non reclining chair waiting for the anaesthetic cream to take affect. There were no private rooms for the microblading to be carried out which meant that I had the majority of my treatment carried out right by the shop window alongside other clients that had appointments for tinting and threading.
I did not have the full attention of the staff member that was carrying out the microblading; I was left on a number of occasions for 20 minutes or more while she carried out threading on other clients and answered phone calls. I felt that this staff member, who I believe to be the shop owner, was inexperienced, perhaps even that she hadn't carried out micoblading before. She made jokes which I felt were inappropriate; pretending to be a doctor while putting on rubber gloves.
Because I had been in the shop for such a long period of time, much longer than necessary, my blood sugar levels dropped and at one point I had blood dripping from my eyebrow and running down the side of my face. This was in full view of other clients who, quite honestly, looked horrified. There was no member of staff near me, not paying attention to me and so I had to call for some tissues to be bought to me.
Anyone who has had microblading will know that this can be a painful experience and one that I feel should be carried out in a private room with undivided attention.
Overall, I would not recommend Honey's Hair and Beauty for microblading. I am not completely happy with the result of the microblading nor the service I received. I did not attend the touch up because of the awful experience I had.
