Did you also know that eyebrows have a purpose?
They help keep your eyes free of dust and dirt, and their shape deflects rain and sweat so it runs down the sides of your face rather than in your eyes!
Today, I’m excited to bring you the essential guide for all things eyebrows.
We’ll look at some tips and tricks so you can emerge victorious in the Battle of the Brows!
Get Your Groom On
If you’re one of the chosen that have naturally shaped eyebrows that require little to no maintenance, you’re a lucky ducky!
For the rest of us, keeping our brows cleaned up can be anywhere from a minor inconvenience to a painful experience.
When it comes to grooming, we have a few options:
“Ladies tweeze, plucking is for chickens.”
We’ve been well acquainted with this method of pulling out individual hairs since the first time we grabbed a pair of Tweezers embarked on a journey of eye-watering brow-shaping.
Pros: Great for quick, regular maintenance. It’s also inexpensive and doesn’t require a trip to the salon.
Cons: Can cause skin irritation and ingrown hairs. It may not last as long as other hair removal methods. And, you run the risk of over-tweezing resulting in too-skinny brows or hair that never grows back.
We’re probably all familiar with this process in which heated wax is applied to the area of unwanted hair and then quickly removed to pull hairs out at the root.
Although at-home waxing kits are available, I’d strongly recommend you seek out an expert so you don’t risk burns or removing skin.
Pros: Temporarily removes hair for anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks, and many people report smoother skin and fewer ingrown hairs as a result.
Cons: It hurts (obviously). It can cause skin irritation, redness and, in some cases, residual or permanent hyperpigmentation. It also requires some growth to be effective, so keep that in mind if you don’t want walk around with unkempt brows leading up to your wax sesh.
This is an ancient practice that originated in India or Central Asia (depending on who you ask).
In this technique, a practitioner uses a twisted piece of thread to pull unwanted hair from the follicle.
Pros: It’s gentler on skin than waxing and allows for more precision and definition, especially for shaping brows.
Cons: I’m not gonna lie, it hurts. And it takes a little longer, so it’s not one quick pain like waxing. It can also cause some redness and skin irritation, so you may want to avoid getting threaded just before you go out.
