Most people say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but eyebrows are a pretty close second. Having eyebrows that you are pleased with can boost your confidence and all around make you feel better looking. Coming to college, you may feel lost without your regular eyebrow lady. It is especially daunting having to take a chance on a new place to get your eyebrows done, and there are not many options around campus. Bhakti Panchal, a junior physiology and neurobiology major, started her own business here at the University of Maryland for students to get their eyebrows threaded.
1. When did you first learn to do eyebrows?
When I was in 8th grade but I started getting better in high school after practicing.

My cousin taught me.
3. When was the first time you did someone’s eyebrows?
The first person I did it too was my best friend in high school before one of our high school dances
4. Why did you want to do people’s eyebrows at college?
I love helping other girls feel pretty and getting the chance to see their reaction after I do their eyebrows. It's become a hobby of mine, and I really enjoy doing it and helping others whenever I can in college. Most places around college park are expensive for threading and I try to offer a cheap alternative to college students.
5. How much do you charge students? Where can they meet with you?
$8 eyebrows, $3 upper lip, $15 full face. They can meet me in my apartment. (contact me for me info)
6. What is your favorite part about doing people’s eyebrows?
My favorite part is getting to meet new people and having conversations with them and continue to get to know throughout the school year.
