Are you someone who tweezes your eyebrows on a regular bases? Or you would not DARE till you saw a professional. Or are you like me? Rarely tweeze. If you are tweezing everyday, STOP. Let your eyebrow hairs try to get on a simliar 'cycle' meaning if you leave them alone they can all possibly grow in a natural growth pattern, which is what you want. A client of mine, would NOT dare to stop tweezing she's Persian so she was use to getting her eyebrows done every 2-3 weeks. Now its every 5-6 weeks.
Here are five tips that can prevent you from making common mistakes.
FILL BEFORE YOU SHAPE
I suggest lightly filling in the eyebrows before you groom, yet that might sound counter intuitive, right? My theory is that if you tweeze your eyebrows at the most natural 'thinnest' state you have a higher chance of over tweezing. Therefore filling in your eyebrows before ensures less tweezing leaving you with fuller brows.
TWEEZE ONE HAIR AT A TIME
Tweeze ONLY HAIRS you KNOW do not need/belong , if at any moment you ask yourself “should I take this ONE SINGLE HAIR” the answer is DON’T.
NO TWO EYEBROWS ARE IDENTICAL
DON’T compare the two brows. Meaning during grooming DO NOT go back and forth to each brow. DO a light clean up per eyebrow thereafter TAKE A STEP AWAY FROM THE MIRROR to get an over all image of your face, hair, etc. I prefer you DON'T use a magnifying mirror but I do understand that some of you NEED to use it. Additionally natural bathroom lighting is best. Nothing with too much shadows.
TAKE A STEP BACK FROM THE MIRROR
After stepping back you may think that was enough your eyebrow shaping move to the next step. If you feel your brows need a slight “lit” arch lets be VERY precise as this is something that needs to be taken hair by hair and stepping back, brush up and over and remember less is MORE. Don't forget if you are unsure, leave it.
TRIMMING YOUR EYEBROWS
For those of you daring enough or NEED to trim you eyebrows, again, same technique hair by hair…..you don’t want that chopped Marine haircut gone wrong look, you know what I’m talking about….or worst you can create holes/gaps in your eyebrows if you cut too short, again less is more.
To finish the look use a spoolie ie; eyebrow brush to brush through the brows. Naturallyby, you!
