Eyebrow Wax: Editor’s Choice

Urban Renewal

“When it comes to brow work, it’s simple: We want someone who listens—really listens—to what we want, and someone who executes it as painlessly as possible. We’ve found that dutiful ear with Urban Renewal’s Michelle Viau. The self-declared perfectionist has 14 years of experience that shows in our flawlessly shaped brows—and in some helpful tweezing advice. Plus, we’re in and out of the Cherry Creek North studio in a quick 20 minutes (hello, lunch break!). ”

Just a reminder I will still carry the Dermalogica line for retail.

Well it has been a wonderful 14 years with so many great times, but I am excited for the change and to focus on expanding my skincare services!  I hope to see you soon in my new north cherry creek location and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!!

Thank You!

What is your history with Urban Renewal Salon?

Well I have been the owner and skincare/waxing queen since we opened in December 97! Wow, sounds like a long time but I am still having fun with what I do!

What are all the services you do?

All waxing from head to toe, eyebrow tinting, eyelash tinting, product knowledge, microdermabrasion, glycolic peels, and all types of facials (relaxing to clinical acne).

What would you say is your specialty?

The ultimate eyebrow. I can transform an over shaped, over tweezed eyebrow to compliment anyone’s face/eye shape. I am a perfectionist that will not take too much off or create the dreaded round brow that I see and fix so much! I have been doing Brazilians for 10 years and have quite a system down to make it as quick and painless as possible without one hair left! As for your skin I started very young with an interest in taking care of my own skin and learned early on that your health and habits are an integral part in good skin. Mix that with Dermalogica product training and I really believe better skin will happen. So hopefully I get to meet you soon!!
