We know what you’re doing here, fellow Melburnian. You’ve been toughing it out during lockdown, without access to our city’s beloved beauty services. And now as we start to open up again, you’re looking to finally, gleefully tidy up those errant brows, aren’t you? Of course you are.
But such important scheduling begs the question – what are the best brow salons in Melbourne? Being that you’re here, you probably haven’t found your arch angel yet. Or perhaps your favourite is already booked solid. Maybe you’re just looking to switch it up a little. Regardless, our edit of the best brow salons in Melbourne has you covered. We can’t promise that snatching up an appointment will be easy (they’re the best, after all), but we can guarantee you’ll walk out with impeccably groomed arches once you’re done.

You can’t talk brows without making mention of Amy Jean Brow Agency, obviously. Entrust your arches to the AJ experts, who are well-versed in everything from keratin brow laminations to henna tinting, mist tattooing and of course their signature Brow Sculpt service.
25 Lansdowne St, East Melbourne
Melbourne’s favourite blow-dry bar now offers beauty services too. How convenient, right? Book in for a brow wax and tint, or ask for a brow lamination to get that soft, feathered shape we’re all after right now. Consider it an essential pre-dinner pit-stop.
146 Little Collins St, Melbourne
As Prahran’s premier brow stylists with more than 20 years’ experience, the team at Victoria Jade are local favourites for brow sculpting, henna tinting, and cosmetic tattooing. You can also add on a lash lift or tint to take the entire eye area up a notch.
Level 1, 150 Greville Street, Prahran
Did the many months in lockdown sell you on a longer term solution to brow upkeep? It’s an investment, but cosmetic tattooing could be the low-maintenance option you’re looking for. North-siders in the know head to The Peach Club for natural-looking microbladed or ombré-misted arches.
21 Nicholson Street, Brunswick East
Get your brows in good shape (literally) at Lux Brows and Lashes. Your brow therapist will take a tailored approach to your treatment, ensuring a natural finish while still giving you the best results. We’re big fans of their brow soaps too (if you know, you know).
6 English St, Essendon Fields
If you prefer your brows to be threaded, we recommend an appointment with the team at Simply Brows and Lashes, where each client’s eyebrows are tended to meticulously. Not into threading? No problem. Staff also offer waxing and tinting (and they know their way around a set of eyelash extensions – but that’s just an extra incentive to stop by).
Brow House is gaining quite the cult following among those who want natural, bushy brows. The salon also specialises in brow lamination – applying a formula that essentially perms your brow hairs, fluffing them up for a fuller finish.
