Sometimes it’s a pain to pull out the tweezers and start plucking your eyebrows. Others see waxing as a quick fix, but the biggest literal pain. Others see threading as an option, but you likely need to go to a beauty shop to get it done. So which eyebrow shaping method is best? It is really up to you. Below we will discuss these three techniques, giving you the pros and cons so you can make the best decision.
You may have watched the scene in the movie The 40 Year Old Virgin in which the main character goes to get his chest waxed. He ends up leaving with only a few patches done, as the pain was too much for him. If your skin is sensitive, it is best for you to avoid waxing. The waxing process can leave a red mark around your eyebrows. The benefit of waxing is that it lasts the longest, meaning there is a longer period between getting them waxed and seeing them start to regrow. Another pro is that it provides a sharp, defined shape.
This method is easy to do at home, requiring just a set of tweezers and eyebrow pencil. Using the pencil you can define how you want your brow to be shaped. Then you can start plucking to create the perfect style. The negative of tweezing is that sometimes your eyebrow hair, once plucked, won’t grow back. If you over-tweeze, you can ruin your eyebrow shape.
You may have seen this option offered at beauty salons at the mall. It is a quick and easy solution to removing eyebrow hair and sculpting them. This service is quicker than tweezing, but it is best to get it done by a professional. The con to threading is that the speed at which it is done can cause reckless hair removal. A good method is to thread and tweeze, so you can create the general shape through threading then tweeze away stray hairs.
