“Owner Cheryl Renella has major red-carpet cred, having groomed the brows of stars like Angelina Jolie and Jeremy Piven. At her small and inviting spa, Renella not only makes over neglected sets (as was the case for our tester) but also doles out helpful tips for managing arches on your own. After cleaning up our tester’s mismatched pair and filling out her “too thin” ends, Renella pointed out the “pluck and no-pluck” zones (tweeze just above eyelids, not above arches) for the thickest-looking results.”
A Beginner’s Guide to Growing Out Your Brows
Cheryl talks to MIMIchatter.com: “To avoid damage to the hair follicle, opt for tweezing, says Cheryl Renella, brow guru and founder of Channing’s Studio & Spa in Chicago. Tweezing lets you be more precise and doesn’t have as lasting effects should you find your brow a bit thinner than desired.”

Some Thoughts from Cheryl Renella of Channing’s Studio & Spa
Did you know that your eyebrows shouldn’t be more than one inch apart? Well, if you didn’t, you probably have never met Cheryl Renella.
Cheryl Renella is the owner and founder of Channing’s Studio & Spa in Chicago and her Personal Corrective Eyebrow Shaping is the most popular item on the spa’s menu. The waiting list is long…but it’s worth the wait.
According to Ms. Renella, regardless of what the current fashion is, you need to shape your brows to compliment your features.
They shouldn’t overpower your face, but rather compliment your style. "The best accessory for any season is your brows,"
says Renella, "They say a lot about you and how you want to be perceived."
Ms. Renella believes that brows should never be waxed. Specified "no pluck zones" are crucial for the perfect set of eyebrows. Also, in order to shape eyebrows properly, Ms. Renella asks clients to lie down so she can properly assess the slope and bone structure of the face. Brows are then shaped accordingly, with an emphasis on the bone structure of the brow, also known as the orbital bone. On the first visit each client can purchase a tweezer, a brush-on brow powder and a clear mascara to maintain the shape between appointments. The next appointment is scheduled in three to four weeks.
