How to Shape Eyebrows
Keeping eyebrows tidy and hygienic is actually very easy; all you need to do is to master the skill of any technique. You can save on cost if you learn how to trim your eyebrows on your own. Why seek professional services while you can do it in the comfort of your bathroom? All you need to get started is skill, sizable mirror, and a magnifying hand-held mirror. The whole operation is best done in front of a mirror. Sitting in front of a large mirror gives you an overall realistic view. The magnifying mirror helps you to capture intricate details of the brow hair pattern.
Well-balanced eyebrows are an essential part of enhancing beauty, it is thus very important for you to get it right from the start. Here are some tricks you can use to help create that accurate shape. Before the shaving kicks off, start by marking out the eyebrows natural ‘borders’. This helps to streamline and to define the outer line. Next, determine the extreme fringes of your eyebrows and draw a liner as a marker. Follow this up by aligning the inner edge of your brow with the nose. The apex of your arch should be where the diagonal line flows from the outer nose area. The imaginary axis should converge with the outside of your pupil. In short, you need to mark out the brows with great precision and balance.
Tools and Technique of Shaping Your Eyebrows
Once you are done with framing the brows by having the hair follicles trimmed, you can then go ahead to choose the tool and technique. You can use any of the following techniques to achieve a stylish brow.
Tweezers are ideal for a thick set of brows. They yield best results when used together with brow gel. Tweezing, unlike the other technique, can be carried out either once or over a period of several days. The art of plucking hair follicles using tweezers is what is referred to as tweezing. To achieve the best results, you should start by applying brow gel. This helps to hold the hair intact. Once this is done, you can then proceed to comb the hair and divide it into manageable sections.
Eyebrow trimmer is very effective in clearing stubborn brow hair. It has a set of rotating blades that gives circular close neat shave and a smooth finish. Eyebrow trimmers come in different shape and designs. Their durable steel handle gives a better grip, while the flexible heads are easy enough to maneuver through the brow contours. Trimmers are hygienic to use as they have a self-cleaning mechanism which prevents clogging. They are also very adaptable as they can shave all kind of brow hair.
Unlike tweezing and trimming, waxing can be challenging when done with no assistance. However, it is one of the most effective techniques you can use to shape your eyebrows. If carefully applied and tactically lifted from the brow, the wax can produce impressive results. This method is commonly used as it leaves a smooth distinct line with easily noticeable brow margins. The downside of this method is the mild stinging sensation you experience when peeling off hair follicles.
Threading and Shaving
Among other techniques, you can employ to shape your eyebrows include threading and shaving. Threading involves using a unique thread designed to capture and reap off hair follicles from the brow. Shaving, on the other hand, can be achieved by means of a blade or a small brow scissors. What should guide you in deciding the technique to use is versatility, comfort and the trim precision of the instrument.
