Basic Brow Upkeep

May 16th, 2014 • Posted by Email Marketing • Permalink

The day after you get your eyebrows waxed is bliss. You get up, look in the mirror and realize you don't have to pluck or maintain a thing. This fabulous maintenance-free feeling lasts for a few days but after that, it's back to tweezing. So, how do you keep that beautiful shape? Here are four tips for eyebrow upkeep:

  1. Pluck the strays.
    After you've gotten your eyebrows waxed, keep the shape by plucking any stray hairs that grow in over your eye. It's best not to tweeze too close to the arch because you don't want to alter the shape created at the salon.

  2. Watch the unibrow.
    Not only should you tweeze strays, you should maintain the area in between your eyebrows. After all, you don't want a unibrow happening. Many people use the pencil trick to make sure they are removing hair from the right spot. Grab a pencil and hold it up against one side of your nose and tweeze the hairs that are to the right of the pencil. Then switch sides and repeat the process.

  3. Cheat with a few products.
    If you have dark brows, use a little brow gel to keep them in check. If you have light brows, you can use a makeup pencil to give them a little kick. Go easy with it; you don't want it to look like a child drew them on.

  4. Keep routine waxing appointments.
    How frequently you swing by depends on the rate your hair grows, but most people should get their eyebrows waxed at least once a month. If your brows look scraggly, come in sooner. It's always best to have our professional shape the brows. You can maintain them, but don't attempt to shape them. It can spell disaster.

With these tips, there's no reason you should have unruly eyebrows. Beautiful, sculpted brows can be yours. Call us at to schedule your brow appointment today.
