Introducing Master Brow Artist Jimena Garcia, Hourglass Artist in Residence


We’re excited to welcome master brow expert Jimena Garcia as an Hourglass Artist in Residence. One of the most sought-after brow artists in the industry, she has tended to the brows of LA’s A-List celebrities to New York’s top beauty editors.  She has been featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Glamour, Town & Country and more.

Garcia splits her time between New York and Los Angeles, and she has garnered a cult following through her techniques that accentuate brows by creating the perfect form for each individual.

Garcia started her career in Art History at The Metropolitan Museum and Parsons School of Design.  Through her study of the face, she discovered how fundamental the eyebrows are to the structure of the face. As a renowned esthetician, she has translated her interest in fine art to creating the most beautiful portrait possible through the brows.

While her aesthetic is, in her words “enhanced natural,” she works closely with each client to find their perfect brow shape. “The brows I create depend on the person: I consider each individual visually, aesthetically, and personality wise.” Her extensive wisdom in self-care and respect for her craft is showcased by her anointment of essential oils, crystals, and rose water during her signature treatments.

Garcia will be at Hourglass Abbot Kinney for select dates. In your personalized consultation, she will expertly assess and shape the perfect brow for your individual face and desired look.
