Waxing is considered as one of the cheap and effective ways to remove hairs form the eyebrow. It is very efficient and helps in giving you a well sculptured, tamed and beautiful eyebrow. It can also be very painful. It can rip your tender skin and cause pain. According to the experts at Spruce & Bond, which is a brow bar in New York City, you should stop waxing your eyebrows. Many other brow experts have also supported this view. They say that tweezing, although it is a tedious job, is the best for shaping your eyebrows.
Tweezing can also have some negative points like over plucking of the eyebrows and one eyebrow being shaped different form the other. However, there are some physical problems connected with waxing, in how it looks and feels. The skin around your eyes is four times thinner than the skin on the other parts of your body. So, it needs more of TLC. Applying hot, thick and tacky wax can affect your delicate skin as well.
Waxing the eyebrows can also speed up the ageing process. So, waxing is out. You can try tweezing instead. Here are some tips that will help you master the art of tweeze.
Hair follicles growth is stopped:
The arches that are achieved with tweezers are considered better according to Spruce & Bond. They say that many people are happy after tweezing their eyebrows. According to them, tweezing create trauma in behind the growth cycle. The body soon recognizes that it does not need certain hair growth, as it senses that the same hairs are removed constantly by tweezing. This makes your body decide that no hair is needed on that area. So, it stops the growth of certain follicles. As the years pass, many people who tweeze their eyebrow regularly do not have hair growing back.
There is good news for people who do over plucking of their eye brows. The hair will eventually return. What you have to do is to recreate a growth connection that can restart the body’s hair production. Brow renovation serum is available to get hair growth back on your eye brow. All you have to do is to apply the serum on the area you want hair to grow. This can regenerate the hairs by allowing the body to realize the needs to apply nutrients to the over plucked area and re-grow hair.
Once you have shaped your brows according to the shape of your face, you will have to maintain them properly. When you see hairs starting to sprout, you will have to remove them. You can go to the professional if need arises.
Let Grow Your Eyebrows:
Shakik also suggests clients to do what may be unthinkable to most people. What to do is to allow for hair growth for twice as long as normal without tweezing. This helps in tricking your body into thinking that there is not a common practice when it comes to your eyebrows, just like trying to get in shape. So, remember to let your eyebrows grow and allow them to rejuvenate every now and then. The growth cycle lasts for 28 days, so you will not get same growth every month. By allowing extra time between, fuller growth of eyebrows is achieved.
Tweezing hair is a must?
Revitalash’s Robin Evans is a waxing fan, but she also supports tweezing. She says that she loves waxing because it helps in removing every single hair. But tweezing is a must according to her. As a professional, she says that she needs to tweeze to be more articulate with the shape and arch to create. For those who want to shape their eyebrows at home, tweezing is always a safer way than waxing. This is because waxing can burn your delicate skin if you use overheated wax, or lead to the removal of more hair from your eyebrows by using too much of wax. Both these can affect the beauty of your eyebrows.
Gel on Eyebrows is cool too:
Evans also recommends using of brow gel like Revitalash Hi-Def Tinted Brow Gel on your brows. This not only helps in enhancing the shape of your eyebrows, but is also easy to use. Using this gel, along with a pair of tweezers, is what she prescribes.
Shaping the eyebrows is important:
Tweezman’s Edward Cruz loves tweezing for grooming the eyebrows. According to him, it is timeless and classic. He says that he had seen new skin that is as fine and delicate as baby skin, getting yanked off as a result of waxing. This makes him cringe at the thought of waxing the brows.
He further says that he had seen trends other than waxing and tweezing come for shaping the eyebrows, like threading etc. But tweezing is the best as it is easier to get the desired shape this way. The shape of a brow is not instant. It takes some time to make the two brows look alike.
Brushing your hair:
It is recommended to use slanted Tweezermans and a spooly brush if you really want to become an expert in tweezing. This is in reality a mascara brush or a makeup brush to comb the hairs. What you have to do is to brush the hairs upwards and smooth out the top for a clean line. You should pluck from below.
Using Eye shadow:
Cruz says that if you have accidentally over plucked your eyebrows, you can use eyebrow pencil or a diffusing powder shadow to fix it. Use an angled brush with a little eye shadow on it, and soften the bottom of the brow, inner towards the temple. This is an excellent way to create a brow when you need it.
According to some people, brow shaping, whether it is waxing or tweezing, is best done when you leave it to a professional.
