frequently asked questions
WHAT SHOULD I DO IN-BETWEEN WAXING?
The usual time between eyebrow waxes is around 4 weeks. The best thing to do is tweeze any stray hairs but DO NOT touch the arch of the brow, or any hairs inside the brow. When tweezing, remember to tweeze in the direction of the hair to easily pull out the hair. This is best to do after a bath or shower. A good concealer over the top of any stray hairs is also very affective to keep the shape of the brow between waxes.
HOW CAN I DRAW MY BROWS IN SO THEY DON'T LOOK FAKE?
"The best thing to do is draw small strokes lightly, with your brow product, so you don't 'over-do' the brow. To break down any product in your brows, take a CLEAN mascara brush (which is called a spoolie, technically) and run it through your brows once you have applied the product, to give a natural finish."
CAN CERTAIN MEDICATION EFFECT WAXING?
"Yes – it can. Medication can thin the skin, meaning this can pull and break it. The best thing to do is consult a professional waxer with the type of medication you are taking – they can advise if it would be recommended for you to get waxed or not, whilst also offering some alternatives for you."
WHERE SHOULD MY BROWS START, ARCH AND END?
"If your brows do not start, arch and end in the right place, they will start to look very unbalanced. Your brow should start at the arch of your nose; this frames your face whilst also making your nose look slimmer. The arch should be just above the iris and the end should be parallel with the corner of your eye. This technique opens up your eyes whilst also helping shape your cheekbones."
WHAT'S BEST, WAXING, THREADING OR TWEEZING
Although it can be painful, waxing is quick and effective, removing lots of hair in one go. As threading is so quick, it can often be unpredictable, meaning it can easily go wrong. Waxing and tweezing are also quick methods, but they are far more predictable and controllable.
