Nothing beats the look of a well defined eyebrow with the perfect arch. They’ve become a big focal point in the beauty industry in recent years, leaving many women wondering exactly how to get the best look for their brows.
There’s some pretty strong opinions out there as to which method is best. Here at Urban Vanity, we’re fans of waxing and happy to offer it as one of our beauty services in Brantford.
Eyebrow waxing is a quick and efficient way of removing hair from around your brows to achieve the desired thickness, shape and arch. Keep reading to find out exactly what we love about it and the benefits of eyebrow waxing over threading or plucking:
What is Eyebrow Waxing?
Eyebrow waxing involves applying a thin layer of hot wax over the hairs that need to be removed. A thin strip of paper and some gentle pressure is applied on top of the wax, then quickly pulled away, bringing the eyebrow hairs with it.
What are the Benefits of Eyebrow Waxing?
Longer Regrowth Period Saves Time and Money
Waxing removes the hair right from the root, which means it takes longer to grow back. In fact, eyebrow waxing only needs to be done every three to four weeks.
You may think that plucking your eyebrows saves time because it doesn’t involve a trip to the beauty bar. But when you compare one 15-minute appointment each month to all the time you spend with your tweezers…is it really faster?
A Red Carpet Worthy Brow Shape
Jaw dropping brows aren’t just for celebrities, eyebrow waxing is an excellent way to achieve perfectly shaped and sculpted brows. Unlike other methods it makes sure to remove all of the desired hairs, you can make both subtle or dramatic changes, and it lends itself well to creating that dramatic, well-defined brow that is so on fleek these days.
Better yet, when you get your eyebrows professionally waxed, you’re not leaving things to chance. Your technician will work with you to determine what will work best for your face, understand your preferences, and make that perfect arch a reality.
Tame Your Thick, Bushy Eyebrows
When you get your eyebrows waxed, the hair tends to grow back slightly softer and thinner. Over time, if you keep up with waxing, your dense, coarse eyebrows will become a thing of the past.
Beyond the thickness of the hair, waxing also helps the hair grow back into your desired shape and direction. Who knew waxing doesn’t just get rid of unwanted hairs, but gradually affects how the hair itself grows?! Pretty sweet, if we do say so ourselves.
Tweezing at home, or even a DIY wax job, often results in an overzealous approach that leaves behind too-thin brows and an arch that’s just not quite right. Eyebrow threading is another popular choice but requires a highly skilled technician, or you might not be happy with what you see. Waxing gives a predictable, pleasing result that won’t leave you with a permanently surprised expression or considering long bangs to cover them up!
The Pain Only Lasts a Few Seconds
Let’s be real, there can be some pain involved in waxing, and some people are more sensitive than others. Plucking and threading involve their own type of pain and take longer to complete, while waxing gets it over with in just a few seconds.
We’d all prefer a pain-free way of getting that perfect arch, but given the options, I think we can all agree that waxing is the lesser of these necessary evils.
We hope by now you’re sold on how waxing is the best way to get the perfect eyebrows. Before you go and book your appointment, we want to make sure you’re aware of a few things to think about or discuss with your technician before you relax and let her work her magic.
If you have sensitive skin, discuss this with your technician before she gets started so she can choose the right wax for your skin. Make sure to keep your eyebrows moisturized in the days after the appointment to prevent dry or irritated skin. Soft, supple skin will also make future waxing even easier!
Waxing can also make the skin sensitive to UV rays for a few days, so if possible, plan your appointments around times where you’ll be out in the sun for extended periods. Let’s not make that post-waxing redness last any longer than it needs to!
Finally, some medications can thin out your skin which could cause problems with waxing. Skincare products containing retinol can also cause sensitive skin and affect your reaction to the wax. If either of these apply to you, make sure to have a conversation with your eyebrow technician or a medical professional to prevent infection or skin problems.
The verdict is in, eyebrow waxing is simply the best way to get those perfectly defined eyebrows of your dreams. It’s quick, affordable and gives undeniably fabulous results that leave you feeling like you belong on a magazine cover.
