While all eyebrows are not created equal, they deserve to be — and Van Jones puts perfection within everyone’s reach by helping clients achieve luscious, effortless brows.
Depending on the stylist, brow shaping at ZVJ costs between $30 and $45. And the resounding refrain among satisfied clients is that, yes, it’s very much worth it.
With a world-class artistic education under her belt, Van Jones’ career as a make-up pro has included training with some of the industry’s most illustrious names. In Pasadena, she got her start at Chignon Salon, before opening the brow studio — originally called BrauHaus — in 2007.
Under its new moniker, the house of brow beauty carries on the Bauhaus design philosophy that inspired the original business name: Form follows function.
