Hair Removal Tips and Tricks

  • Invest in a professional pair of tweezers with a clean, sharp, and slanted edge.
  • Steam your eyebrows with a washcloth for about 5 to 10 minutes or tweeze your eyebrows after a hot shower. The pores will open making it easier to pull out hair.
  • After plucking your eyebrows, wait at least 30 minutes to an hour before applying make up.
  • Take a pencil and hold it up vertically, straight up, against your nose. This is where your eyebrows should start, any hair that is visible on the other side should be tweezed. Next, place the pencil diagonal from the nose to the outer corner of the eye into the hairline, this is where the brow should end.
  • Start plucking from the bottom of the natural hairline, just above the eyelid. Pluck in the direction of the hair growth. Check for equal balance and proportion while you tweeze.
  • Brush brows up to find a natural arch.
  • Comb your brows up using an eyelash comb and trim any hairs that extend beyond the natural top or brow bone.
  • Use natural light whenever possible. Be close to a window with light pouring in or under a bright light with a good mirror. (Use a magnifying mirror so you can see each hair be sure and flip it over so you can see the overall effect in the regular mirror.)
  • Remove hair as close as possible to the root
  • Be sure not to pull your skin. It causes redness and bleeding.
  • Go slowly grabbing one hair at a time, so you don’t over tweeze.
  • It’s a myth that brows should never be plucked from above. You want both the bottom and the top to be smooth. Be careful, and remove a few stray hairs from both the top and the bottom of the brow.
  • Over tweezing your eyebrows can cause an unnatural look. If you over pluck, then you’re stuck. Your brows won’t always grow back once they’re yanked.
