Earlier in the week, I went in for a morning of beauty therapy with Jan Lane. She is a qualified beauty therapist, with a practise in Mosgiel, Dunedin and I have to say she is one of the nicest people I’ve met. As soon as you walk in to her beautiful clinic, you feel instantly welcome. Jan is bubbly and so easy to talk to and we chatted throughout the whole of my treatments.
Jan Lane offers a wide range of beauty services, and specialises in waxing, gel nails, and electrolysis. She is also Dunedin’s only qualified PhiBrows technician. PhiBrows is an advanced style of microblading, which offers a natural looking finish. Jan explained a little bit about the PhiBrows method while I was getting my brows waxed, and it definitely sounds like a great way to have semi-permanent eyebrows. The PhiBrow method ensures each stroke is drawn in the direction of the natural hair, to ensure it looks natural and blended. Brows are made symmetrical by using the Phi method which calculates the “golden intersection”. This is based on your face shape. If I was to ever get my brows micro bladed I’d definitely get them done by Jan! Her work is amazing and looks so natural. One thing that’s always put me off microblading, was the fact that I hate needles. It turns out they actually use a tiny blade, and the pain factor is very minimal with it only feeling a bit like a scratch – how cool!
At my appointment I got my very first ever leg wax. I’ve always been a shaving kinda gal, but was keen to see the effects from waxing. Jan used a strip wax on my legs, and the whole procedure was over so quickly. I’m always a little bit of a chicken when it comes to painful procedures, but this really wasn’t bad at all. The result was gorgeously smooth legs, that I now don’t have to worry about for a few weeks! I’d definitely get my legs waxed again!
Next Jan waxed and tinted my eyebrows. I hadn’t had my eyebrows done in months, and they were looking a little unruly (as you can probably see from the images below). Jan tidied up my brows, while still keeping their natural shape. She also applied a golden brown colour to my brows which looks so natural and blends with my natural colour and my hair colour perfectly. This is by far the best my brows have ever looked, and I’m so happy with them! It’s nice not having to fill them in every day.
Jan also tinted my lashes with a black tint, and this is another procedure that I love having done. It’s so nice to not have to wear mascara all the time, and I love how much longer my lashes look naturally.
Lastly, Jan applied gel nail polish to my nails. I think I’ve had gel nails only once, so it was such a nice treat to have it done. Gel nail polish lasts much longer than regular polish, and can go up to 14 days without chipping. I opted for a glittery shade called Princess, which is a gorgeous semi-transparent pink glitter. It’s such a fun shade and I absolutely love how my nails turned out.
I enjoyed my beauty treatments so much and it was so nice just to relax for a while. Jan Lane was so lovely, and I’ll be going back to her any time I need beauty treatments done. I love my brows so much – they really are the best they have ever looked.
If you are in Dunedin and are in need of waxing, nails, brows or any other beauty treatment, I highly recommend Jan. If you are interested in getting your brows micro bladed, I also suggest you take a look at her work on her Instagram or Facebook page
