Eyebrow Shaping: Why Every Brow Can Be Improved

Eyebrow shaping is one of the techniques that we use to highlight our features. Used correctly, the eyebrow can be shaped to enhance our facial features and help create unforgettable beauty. Done incorrectly, or not at all, the eyebrow can become a distraction that takes away from our other features.

Eyebrow shaping is done at most hair salons, spas and specialty salons that specialize in hair removal. Technicians are well trained to remove unwanted hair and give your eyebrows a flattering shape.
Eyebrow shaping is meant to enhance your existing features. The shape should be tailored to your face and highlight your features. If your face is round, then your eyebrow should have more of an arch to it. If your face is long, then you want to stay away from an arch. An arch in your eyebrow will pull the eye up to the brow making your face appear longer. If your face is square, then the eyebrow should be a bit thicker with a slight arch.

How is eyebrow shaping done? There are several options to have your eyebrows groomed to perfection. The most common is tweezing, or plucking. This method can be very painful and takes time to do. You can either choose to do this yourself or have it done by a professional at a salon.

Eyebrow waxing is the quickest and easiest way to remove unwanted hair and shape your eyebrows. Eyebrow waxing is less painful than tweezing. There is minimal pain because the hair is removed at once. Hot wax is placed on the hair to be removed, and pulled off with one quick movement.

One of the most unique techniques for eyebrow grooming is called "eyebrow threading". This is an old ancient Indian method where cotton thread is wrapped around the brows and moved up and down to remove the hair. Eyebrow threading offers a precise and cleaner line. Eyebrow threading should only be done by the professionals.

Whether you are choosing tweezing, threading or eyebrow waxing, you will need to maintain proper grooming of your eyebrows. You will usually need to have them done every 2-3 weeks to keep them looking good. So if you're looking for a new look or you want to freshen up your appearance and highlight your facial features, check into eyebrow grooming with an expert. For the best results, visit a professional to find the perfect shape for your eyebrows to highlight your particular facial features.

Brow Waxing FAQs

Can Men Get Their Eyebrows Waxed?

Brow waxing just isn't for women these days. Women aren't the only ones who care about how they look and how they present themselves. More and more men are turning to brow waxing to help shape their eyebrows and to enhance their facial features.

Is Brow Waxing as Painful as Tweezing?

There is a little bit of pain with brow waxing. However, it is just a split second of pain when the hairs are pulled out. Tweezing is more painful because it is a much slower process and 1 hair is pulled out at a time. With waxing, all the hair is pulled out at one time.

How Does Eyebrow Waxing Work?

The eyebrows are first brushed, and then hot wax is placed onto the hair that is to be removed. A thin cloth material is placed onto the wax and pressed down. The cloth is removed with a swift movement and the hair is pulled out at the root. There may be some additional tweezing necessary to remove any stray leftover hairs. Trimming the remaining brow with scissors may also be necessary.

Where Can I Get My Eyebrows Waxed?

You can get your eyebrows groomed at your hair salon, spa or a specialty spa that specializes in hair removal.

How Much Does Brow Waxing Cost?

Pricing for waxing varies by location. An average price for getting your eyebrows waxed starts around $5 and can run up to $50. Higher priced salons and specialty spas can sometimes run a bit pricy. Location is also a factor. If you are living in LA or NYC, you will pay more than if you are living in Oklahoma.

What is The Difference between Brow Waxing & Eyebrow Threading?

Brow waxing is done by using hot wax to remove the unwanted hair and shape the eyebrow. Eyebrow threading is done using 2 strands of cotton thread. The thread is twisted together and runs across the eyebrow one row of hair at a time. As the threads pass over the hair it gets entwined in the threads and is removed as the thread moves across it. This process is done until the desired shape is achieved.

How Often do I Need to Have my Brows Waxed?

Most often brow waxing is needed to be repeated between 2-4 weeks. It all depends on how quickly your hair grows in, how dark it is, and how dedicated you are to looking your best.

Want a New Hair Color? Questions to Consider

There is nothing better than the feeling of walking out of a hair salon knowing that you look and feel you best. Changing your hair color is a great way to give yourself a new and updated look. However, there are still many people who prefer to color their own hair at home. While this saves money, there is a greater risk involved. After all, you are not a professional hair stylist.

Therefore, before you make your decision about a new color and how you are going to do it, consider the following questions:

Q: Do I do it myself or go to a hair salon?

Your decision to do the color yourself or get it done at a hair salon can have a large impact on the outcome. There is a certain amount of risk involved with doing it yourself. And, nothing is more relaxing than sitting back and letting a colorist give you a great new look.

There is no risk involved going to a salon to get your hair done. When a stylist colors your hair you will avoid a potential hair disaster.

Q: How much do I want to pay?

With so many hair color and highlight products available, many people are tempted to do it themselves. Yes, it comes at a considerably lower price, but you often get what you pay for. If you do decide to do it yourself, pay close attention to the details provide on the hair color box.

Q: Will color damage my hair?

When people color their own hair they often do damage it because they do not have the knowledge to do it properly. Many people apply too much hair color, leave it on too long, or apply it too often. Professional hair colorist's will not damage your hair.

Q: Will my color be even if I do it myself?

That depends. Have you done it before and achieve reasonable results? The truth is you won't know until you are done. However, if you go to a stylist, they will definitely color your hair evenly. Uneven color not only looks bad, but it will require the attention of a hair stylist to fix it properly. Don't risk the embarrassment.

Q: Can I match the color I want?

This is tough to do for amateurs, especially if you already have color in your hair. When you have color in your hair, it is more difficult to predict the outcome. And, home color kits fail to provide you with the results you see on the box. On the other hand, hair colorist's know what colors to mix to achieve the exact hair color you want.

Q: Will my new hair color look good?

Hair stylists will make recommendations. They know what hair colors look good on certain types of people. If you do it yourself, your hair might not look as good as you anticipated. Hair colorist's have experience will all hair style and colors. They know what will work and what wont.

While it is more cost-effective to color your own hair, it is also a risk. Don't risk ruining your hair by doing your own color. Get your color done by a professional hair stylist. Some things are just better left to the professionals.
