How to wax your eyebrows? THE CELEBRITY WAY TO DO IT

Eyebrow waxing is ideal for those who are always ahead with the grooming ways and don’t want to be left behind when it comes to having the fancy shapes of eyebrows. Eyebrow waxing originated in Manhattan and has become a widely popular salon treatment, a must for every time you visit one.

Eyebrow waxing is done with the help of waxing strips, which are generally made of soft plastic and have adhesive (wax) on one side. These strips are cut out in the middle in the shape of an eyebrow and therefore act like stencils. Stencils of different shapes are available and there is a wide variety to choose from and find your perfect shape. Shapes like round, arched, angular, flat and curved are available among many others. Shapes and their names also vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

The process involves meticulous placing of the eyebrow stencil over the eyebrow, application of slight pressure so that the wax sticks on all the hair that doesn’t fit the stencil and then firm tugging away from the direction of growth in a snap pulling out the stencil. The method is quick and efficient. There is hardly any mess and the pain dies out in a little while. It is definitely better than tweezing and trimming because it gives a much cleaner and neater well-groomed salon fresh look. The stencils are available for self-use as well but one should be very careful with their use as the shape of your brows is not something you can take a risk with.

To ease the pain during waxing the area can be numbed in advance by rubbing some ice over the brow area or the entire brow bone. It should be made sure the area is clean before waxing and to avoid moisture because of sweat from getting in the way, application of some talcum powder is ideal to soak away anything. Once the waxing is over the area should be swiped over with a toner or astringent to close open pores. To give a soothing effect moisturizer can be smothered over the entire area to do away with redness and swelling.

Any straggly hairs left over after waxing can be easily plucked out using a set of good tweezers.
