Beauty and Brow – About
Michal Gabriel Beauty and Brow™ is a multi award-winner beauty salon. They specialise in Natural Eyebrow Restoration and Design and help women with compromised eyebrows. They do so by creating world-class natural eyebrow design, helping them gain their confidence back and improve their self-esteem. Most of their clients came after they lost their trust in the beauty industry. They went to a beauty salon, thinking they are in good hands but ended up with eyebrows that were too thin/uneven/unlevelled or simply not complementing their natural beauty and look. Michal is showing them how they can trust the beauty industry again. Her clients are relaxed when laying on her beauty bed knowing they are in good hands.

Michal Gabriel started her brow salon business knowing how it feels to have compromised eyebrows. She has 5 scars across her eyebrows and as a teenager suffered from low self-esteem and lack of confidence, she avoided leaving the house thinking she “looked like a witch”. Fortunately, it was not long before her Mother realised and came with an eyebrow pencil to show her how to use it and fill in the spaces in the brows. That was a turning point in her life. She could now leave the house, no longer had to pretend the sun or the light in the room is too bright and cover her eyebrows with her hands. Her life has changed from this moment onwards.
With such experience, it was only natural for her to pay extra attention to eyebrows when she became a beauty therapist. She will never stop trying for better solutions or better results. During her career, Michal started an eyebrow tattooing course. Thinking, Finally! A permanent solution for her brows! It looked promising, but while training, she saw clients coming back, with faded tattoos. They had orange/blue/green shade in them after they started to fade, she realised it was not a solution! Devastatingly, she knew it was an irreversible treatment that could cause her more mental stress rather than relief. The final results were worse, she saw how it affected the client’s confidence and self-esteem. Michal never proceeded to complete the course. Instead, determined to find other solutions for women’s brows, especially hers.
In her search, it was most upsetting to see cancer patients, who lost their hair and looked for quick solutions themselves. It was heartbreaking to see those clients were offered irreversible quick-fix solutions by her industry peers. She knew their hair will eventually grow. She looked at ways to help them and volunteered at “Look Good Feel Better” a non-profit charity organisation where they educate cancer patients on make-up application techniques and tips on how to use headcovers.
There is currently a rush and demand in the beauty industry for quick-fix eyebrow solutions. Some are suitable solutions for some but definitely not the perfect solution for most. Unlike most traditional beauty salons Michal Gabriel Beauty and Brow™ are proud to offer a prestige service that enhances women’s natural brows.
Known globally on social media using the hashtag #savethenaturalbrow, Michal Gabriel educates women on how they can have stunning eyebrows, naturally. She is all joy when clients are saying these are the best eyebrows they ever had. And that they cannot stop looking in the mirror, or when they are in awe at how much difference a correct eyebrow shape can make to their face, improving their confidence and self-esteem. It is truly what Michal is living for.
Michal has a high demand for natural eyebrow design, in fact, this service has increased by 304% from the previous year, proving how women are thirsty for natural brow solutions and soft and famine eyebrows are in high demand.
Committed to further education, Michal is still attending weekly eyebrow training and yearly masterclasses with Elle Wilson, founder of the TrueBrow™ system.
