Perfect eyebrows are one of the biggest things happening in the beauty industry. If I go a few months without my usual brow maintenance, It feels as if I have caterpillars on my face. Yes, its that serious! Even the most perfect set of eyebrows require maintence, I have three of the most popular tecqnuiques. Most choose from Threading, Waxing or Tweezing- we all have our favorite!


EYEBROW FACT: DID YOU KNOW…

In Ancient Egypt, both men and women wore eye makeup to ward off evil sprits. This included their eyebrows, they were darkened with gray or black powder made from galena, a lead-based mineral.

If you’ve had at least one bad eyebrow experience, “Say I”! I can conclude that I have had many. I have learned that If you can find someone that can tame your brows exactly how you like them… *WHISPERS* stick with THEM!! If you want naturally thick brows, its important that you let only one person work their magic on your face. Too many hands, isn’t always a good thing.


Shaping your eyebrows for the first time can be extremely scary. However, I can guarantee that you will be hooked; with no regrets.


Threading

Eyebrow threading is an ancient technique that originated in Asia & Middle East. This technique uses a thin piece of thread to quickly clean unnecessary hair from the eyebrow. This happens to be my favorite technique, the results are clean and long lasting.

Waxing

Eyebrow waxing is a technique that requires hot wax, a popsicle stick and strips that will stick to your skin to remove the unwanted hair. This technique works well for those with thicker brows because its said to have the longest period between regrowth.

Tweezing

Tweezing is one of the most cost effective methods of shaping your brows. Most will use this technique to pluck the unwanted hairs and use a eye brow pencil to fill in for shaping.
