We had the good fortune of connecting with Brittany Porter and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brittany, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
Work life balance is definitely an important aspect of business. I feel that having a good work life balance allows us to make better judgment calls and decisions. It took me years to really understand what a work life balance meant. It truly wasn’t until I started my own business that I started to realize how integral a balance is in becoming successful.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a brow artist who specializes in transforming eyebrows. I provide brow waxing, tinting and laminations. I have a lot of clients who come to me wanting grow out and change their brows. I am able to create a plan to get their brows to their brow goals.

I really enjoy getting to work with different people every day. I love to create connections with people, and help them in feeling beautiful and confident.

My career started in 2010 working at an ULTA brow bar. I wasn’t sure if it was something I would stick with, as I’ve never considered doing eyebrows as a career. It didn’t take long for me to realize it was something I really enjoyed doing, and it was a plus that I was actually good at it as well. Fast forward five years and I had received a promotion as a sales manager for Benefit cosmetics – The ultimate dream job for a brow bar artist. I found joy in traveling to my different stores, training new brow bar hires, and coming up with game plans to get their businesses on track. A couple years later and new insight on growing business I found myself in a transitional period with my career. I was not sure what I wanted but I knew that I missed providing services. I decided I wanted to learn a new trade and I chose to get into lash extensions. I found myself training and coming on with a local franchise lash studio. It only took a few days for me to realize that I did not want to be in the corporate/working for someone else atmosphere no longer. While in the midst of the pandemic, I decided that the time to go out on my own was now. I started my business “That Brow Babe” business in Southlake. I enjoy sharing my expertise and knowledge with my clients, and being able to create a personalized experience for them. I pride myself in providing a transformative brow service for my guests.

I found myself having to overcome the fear of rejection, and feeling as if I was not good at times. Self doubt was a big obstacle for me.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Definitely have to go to the XO dining room, as well as the Dover hotel. Check out some of the places in Montgomery plaza like the tiki bar. For sure grab some crumbl cookies as well. Also have to check out salons by JC Southlake where you can get a variety of different beauty services from brows to lashes to facials and massages.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My fiancé and mother for always supporting my endeavors and keeping me motivated to do my best
