Almost 25 years after her demise — and greater than 60 years since she first burst onto the silver display together with her starring function in Roman Holiday — Audrey Hepburn’s cultural legacy lives on. The legendary actress and humanitarian’s influence is far-reaching; you’ll nonetheless discover traces of her affect in modern-day films, model and wonder tendencies, and on the partitions of teenage women’ bedrooms worldwide. (Seriously, what number of Breakfast at Tiffany’s posters do you suppose have been printed for the reason that film got here out in 1961?)
In reality, in case you look carefully, you’ll be able to even discover echoes of Audrey in Meghan Markle’s eyebrows. Since relocating to London simply final month (for her official move-in to Nottingham Cottage, as you do), Markle has reportedly change into an everyday at Mayfair salon Nails & Brows, the place she sees the salon’s founder, Sherrille Riley, for the total Audrey therapy. As Riley tells Harper’s Bazaar UK, she makes use of a mix of waxing, tweezing, and threading (sure, all three) to create the clear, elegant look. “You can’t really go wrong with the Audrey,” Riley says.
The approach takes after the icon’s forehead look in that it is straight and archless, with a slight upward elevate towards the ends of the brows. “This helps to lift [the] eyes while balancing [the] features,” Riley explains. The Audrey, she says, “is modern, elegant and super flattering for Markle’s features.”
You do not need to be Hollywood royalty or a real-life Duchess-to-be to get the Audrey for your self: The 20-minute service is certainly one of a number of choices on the menu at Nails & Brows, the place anybody can stroll on in and request the look, offered they’re ready to shell out £48. That’s roughly $65 within the US — so, not low-cost.
