MILLION DOLLAR MAN: Eyebrow guru and makeup entrepreneur Ramy Gafni is in the process of insuring his hands for $1 million. Lloyds of London, the London-based insurers of body parts, is handling the deal, which is expected to close in two weeks. When asked why he is doing this, Gafni responded: "To protect my interest, [because] eyebrow shaping is why I am in demand." Gafni, who wields his tweezers at an East Side studio, as well as at Bergdorf Goodman’s beauty basement, said he’s tried training other people in the art of eyebrow shaping to keep his growing customer base satisfied, but to no success. "If I break my hand my business will suffer greatly," Gafni said.
