Beautiful Brows, to pluck or not to pluck? That is the question!
The eyebrow is either beautifully shaped or hairy furry mess. We spend time worrying about wrinkles, the slight notice of a tiny gray hair, but we never take the time to look at the shape of our eyebrows. Eyebrows primarily orchestrate the facial expression and emotional display of our feelings.
Here are a some tips on making the brow beautiful
1. Check for uneven brows- make sure that you take a good look at your dominant side, if you are right handed, your right brow may look much better than your left. Make sure you start opposite your dominant side. Create your shape and outline your arch by using an eyebrow pencil.
2. Thin eyebrows are outdated- but keep in mind, if you like thin, make sure NOT to arch them high, since it may give you a permanent look of SURPRISE and you may want to avoid the circle shaped eyebrow too!
3. Suggested alternatives to plucking- threading the eyebrows, a very popular technique to hair removal in the west. This ancient art common in India and Egypt is the easiest way to remove the hair follicle as well as extremely sanitary. If you opt for threading, you may experience some discomfort from the rolling of the thread on your skin. Furthermore, frequent threading may stop hair growth permanently.
Another alternative would be waxing the eyebrows; this can be done professionally, or in the comfort of your home. Waxing is a quick, easy solution lasting several weeks. I prefer to use the cream wax heat instead of pre-made wax strips; the cream will give you a much smoother result.
Last resort is tattooed brows, this should only be done if there is significant amounts of eyebrow loss due to over plucking, age, medication or illness resulting in regrowth difficulties. Make sure that the tattoo artist specializes in eyebrow sculpting; you don’t want to walk out of there with branches and leaves for eyebrows.
Lastly, if you have $8k to spend you can always have an eyebrow implant, just as celebrity Megan Fox had done. Her before and after photo is shown to the right.
A simple, quick fix for grooming the brows is to use an eyebrow comb. Apply a little hairspray or gel onto your fingertips, dab onto your brow comb, run the brush with an upward stroke, and it will shape your brows into place.
