To TWEEZE, THREAD or WAX?
Eyebrows can be a tricky fix and even the most beautiful brows need occasional maintenance. But read this before you alter yours again to find out which service is best for your brows.
TWEEZING One of the easiest do-it-yourself brow fixes; but did you know that if you're just plucking in between and around the brows, you're allowing your hair to grow more imperfect. You must invest in a good pair of tweezers to show success in tweezing! When you tweeze you select exactly which hairs to remove and pull them out one by one. To achieve a perfect arch, start plucking hairs from underneath the eyebrow and follow its natural curve. Once you have achieved your desired shape, you can darken or fill in any gaps with a pencil or shadow.
Threading allows for a detailed definition of the brow shape. It creates a more natural finish because you're working closely with individual hairs. Threading allows technicians to move with more speed than with tweezing. If you're looking to add an arch or let your brows grow wild for a bit, threading can be a fast way to rev up your shape. If perfection is what you are looking for in an eyebrow shape then THREADING can be dangerous! Ever wondered how threading works? A technician holds the end of a cotton thread in her teeth, and loops it around her right and left hands. Using a twisting motion, the thread is then run along a row of unwanted hair, trapping them in a mini-lasso and lifting them right out of their follicles.
Waxing is a fast process and pulls out all the finer hairs that you can easily miss when tweezing. Waxing gives you the longest period in between regrowth. If you have thicker, coarser hair that grows back quickly, waxing is the best option for shaping. Waxing also encourages thinner, softer regrowth. Waxing can be bothersome for those sensitive skin types as it leaves a red pigmentation on your skin and causes inflammation. Waxing however does provide sharp, clean lines which make brows look much more defined.
