Well-plucked eyebrows make you appear more groomed than any thing else. Today it is a trend to get eyebrows tweezed or threaded professionally in eyebrow boutiques, which are very expensive. It is even recommended that you should get your eyebrows done by a professional to set a 'blueprint', which will give you an idea of shape, so that you can yourself pluck where the hair grow. The most common way to give shape to your brows is to pluck them, by threading or tweezing them with a good set of tweezers.
Types of Tweezers
Tweezers serve as the best option because using thread is somewhat
difficult while making your own eye brows and moreover, it needs proper
training; otherwise it can harm your skin by leaving cuts and marks.
There are several kinds of Tweezers available in market, such as, one
with thin tips which are great for getting a good hold on small fine
ingrown hair to pluck them. Tweezers with slanted tips gives you more
control and are good for novices. Tweezers with square tips are quite
useful when it comes to pluck off coarse thick hair or more than one
hair at a time. You can choose any of them depending on your need and
Before Tweezing Tips
You need to take care of few tips before you start tweezing your brows.
Keep a hot washcloth over your face for some time before tweezing as it
loosens up hair follicles, making plucking easier and less painful.
Smoothen up brows with a little moisturizer as it helps hair to slide
out more easily. Brush up the brows to define the natural arch and draw
the desired shape using a soft eye shadow pencil before you start
plucking. Comb brows upwards with an eyelash comb and trim hair
extending beyond the natural brow bone. Make sure that you are standing
near a window or under a bright light with a good mirror to get a clear
view of your hair growth.
Avoid over plucking as it takes too much time for brows to grow back in
shape. The space between your brows should be equal or a little wider
than the space in your eyes. Always pluck hair in the direction they
grow and avoid grabbing too many hairs at a time. After the job is
complete, apply aloe vera gel, which will help to calm the redness,
occurred due to plucking. It is also recommended to soothe the area with
cool and wet tea bags. Always try to pluck your eyebrows before bedtime
so that the redness disappears overnight.
