Waxing is a quick, gentle and long lasting way to define the shape of your eyebrows. Plucking out individual hairs takes much longer and you run the risk of getting carried away with the tweezers, and ending up with bald patchy or in a continual process of trying to remove stray hairs, especially any fluffy ones.
Before attending your appointment you’ll want to grow out your brows, for as long as you’re able to bear it, so that their natural shape is visible. Both dark and lighter fluffy hairs are removed in one go, hot wax is applied with a slim spatula. I will ensure that your brows are symmetrical and draw an imaginary line from the end of the nose to the inner and outer edge of the eye to use as a guide. Hair is mainly removed from in between and underneath your eyebrows. Your brows might also be trimmed from above to create a sharper outline.
At the end of your treatment a soothing gel will be applied to cool and reduce any redness. You’ll be offered a mirror to check the results and can always ask for your brow length to be shortened or the arch to be made sharper if you’re not happy with the shape. Whatever you do, don’t be tempted to overdo it or you’ll end up with a permanently surprised look. A trained beautician won’t let you anyway and hair does usually grow back if left unattended.
