If your eyes are a window to your soul, your eyebrows are the window treatments. Beautifully shaped and waxed eyebrows give you a clean and neat look, and you don’t have to touch them. The problem is, it only takes a couple of days before the first couple of stray hairs rear their heads. Waxing is a critical part of your skincare regimen, and although we might seem partial to professional beauty services as we’re writing to you from Nail Art Orange Grove – the best nail salon in Fort Myers, we’re telling you as a friend: put the scissors and tweezers down and get to the salon.
Waxing will eventually cause your eyebrow hair to grow in more slowly so you won’t have to pencil in as many appointments, but until you get to that place we implore you to wait before picking up the scissors and tweezers and book an appointment to have your brows waxed. There are measures you can take to make your eyebrows less unruly, and a couple of things you can do to put off an appointment for a day or two or grow your brows out as you are working with a professional to change the shape.
Only Tweeze the Strays
Use tweezers to nab the strays above your eyes and between your brows. However – tweezing above the brow line is a NO-NO! To make tweezing just a little easier, try the “hot cold method.” Place a heated washcloth over your brows, opening the pores, then use an ice cube to numb the area – a great way to cut down on the ouch factor of tweezing.
But, remember what you want to go for in an eyebrow look – a full natural brow! So don’t go too crazy with the tweezers. Over-plucked eyebrows actually age your face, while their grown out versions make the face appear more youthful and full. In a perfect world you would successfully maintain your eyebrows without tweezing, allowing your hair to naturally grow back in without disrupting the hair growth cycle.
Use the Right Products
When necessary, use products to tame your brows. For example, if you have over-plucked brows, you can get your eyebrows to look fuller. Just use an eyebrow pencil the same shade as your natural color. Use short, upsweeping motions to fill in your brows, allowing the pencil strokes to look like your natural eyebrow.
With an eyebrow brush, you can brush those brows so that all hairs are going in the same direction. These are two tried and true methods that will keep your eyebrows looking clean and neat in between appointments.
Turn to Natural Remedies
Use canola oil. Some beauty experts suggest that canola oil can be healthy for hair growth. Just take two to three drops and massage your eyebrows for ten minutes so that they can grow in quicker – don’t wax or pluck your eyebrows until they have grown back.
Other Alternatives to Achieving a Full Brow
Consider micro-blading- a cosmetic procedure that gives an incredibly natural and realistic eyebrow look. Micro-blading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration.
