What to Know Before a Brow Wax

What to Know Before a Brow Wax

A brow wax is an easy way to feel (& look!) put together before special occasions. At a price that’s anything but special-occasion-worthy, why not opt for a brow wax as part of your monthly self-care? Check out some common FAQs and fun facts on brow waxing below, and don’t hesitate to reach out with questions.

Why do we have brows?

Brows protect our eyes from the moisture (sweat) rolling off of our foreheads. Each eyebrow has 720 hairs that actually change over time.

Whats the latest ‘look’ for brows?

“Think of it this way – there’s no one hairstyle for everyone, so there’s no one brow style for everyone,” says Lentin. “The trick is to find the best frame for you rather than follow a trend.”

Why is brow-shaping often so hard to get right?

If you want a new shape better suited to you, go to a brow technician. “The trick is to create an ’emotional’ eyebrow. Don’t think ‘there’s hair so I must tweeze’ because removing just one hair can create a hole.”

What technique creates a better look? Waxing or threading?

There is no right or wrong answer here. As Lentin explains, it’s all about finding the best expert for the job. “It’s about finding the best technician to perform the job rather than thinking one technique is better than the other.”

Is it a no-no to remove the hairs on the top pf my brows?

“Unwanted hair is unwanted hair,” says Lentin. So, this brow “rule” isn’t something to live by but removing hair above your brows should be done with caution. I recommend having an expert assess the hair in this area first and show you how much is going to be removed before he or she applies the wax or starts to thread.
