Eyebrow Shaping

Professional eyebrow shaping: What you need to know

‘Some people are gifted with beautiful eyebrows and know exactly how to groom them, but most of us are better off leaving it to the experts.

Just like an interior decorator can give you a brand-new perspective on your living room, an eyebrow specialist can transform the way you see your facial features. A single hair can change the entire shape of the brow, which in turn changes the shape of your face.


Ideally, you should come to your appointment with at least two to four weeks of hair growth‘the more hair your Aesthetician has to work with, the better. But if you can’t wait that long, go ahead and book the appointment. The idea is to cultivate it so they’re easier to grow out. That’s better than having you get impatient and sabotaging your efforts (by tweezing the hair yourself)


About once a month is the norm for professional brow upkeep. You can absolutely maintain them on your own, but hair grows in three different cycles.  Usually between the three- and six-week mark is when things start to go a bit amiss, even if you don’t have a huge over-growth of hair. That’s when it’s time to revisit the shape with a professional’s help.

The rest of the time, you can remove stray hairs yourself with a pair of slanted tweezers. (Because it’s easier to make mistakes with the top of your brows, only tweeze from underneath.) Just take out what comes in and make sure that you’re not going so close to the shape that you’re changing it.  If you ever question whether a hair should come out, the answer is always no- that’s what you save for your appointment with your Aesthetician.
