In this blog post, we’ll share with you our top 3 tips for beautiful brows that we’ve learned after years in the beauty industry.

If you’re like most people, you probably weren’t born with the perfect set of eyebrows, and trying to make them look groomed and symmetrical can give you a lot of grief.  For many of us, spending hours in front of the mirror with a set of tweezers, brow pencil, and sculpting wax just isn’t realistic, so we have to look to other solutions to get our desired look.  With so many options out there these days, how do you know which method is best for you and your unique needs?  

After years in the beauty industry, we at Girlfriends Brow Bar have discovered these three simple tips to live by when it comes to having beautiful brows:  

TIP #1: Don’t Tweeze Your Own Brows

Tweezing your brow hairs can actually cause permanent damage to the follicle and root, which creates bald spots on your brows where the hairs used to be!  We’ve all picked up a pair of tweezers at one point or another and might have gotten a little too carried away.  If you end up removing too many hairs, the whole structure of your brow shape can fall apart, and even worse – those hairs may never grow back!  If you do notice that your brows might be starting to look a little more sparse than usual, maybe it’s time to look into one of our Bombay Brow Henna or 3D Tinting treatments, to give your brows back the look of fullness they once had. 

TIP # 2: Stay Away From Wax

Waxing can actually cause more damage than other hair removal methods.  How? Waxing can irritate your skin and aggravate sebum production, which can cause breakouts and enlarged pores.  Additionally, because waxing doesn’t target individual hairs, hairs may not come out cleanly by the root, which is a large contributing factor to ingrown hairs.  Not to mention the risk of developing wrinkles due to the pulling and tugging of your skin with wax strips.  Yikes!  The best and most effective method of hair removal for any age or stage of life is threading.  Threading is the least invasive, low cost, cleanest and safest way to take care of your facial hair without the scary side effects! 

TIP # 3: Have Them Shaped By A Professional

You see a hairstylist to cut and colour the hairs on your head, so why not show the same respect for your brow hair? The brows are so crucial in framing and giving structure to your face, and professionally shaped and coloured brows can elevate your look and bring out your best features.  Your brow artist will be able to map out your facial features and create the exact shape, fullness, and shade that suits you best.  Just like a new haircut makes you feel like a million bucks, professionally shaped brows will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed and ready to take on the world.
