We’re always told eyebrows should be sisters, not twins, but what about when they don’t even look like third cousins? What are we supposed to do when one section of hair just won’t lay flat? And how do we get our super light, blonde brows to be seen without looking like our eyebrows are suddenly too dark and overpowering? Fear not! The answers to those questions and more await you below.
Cleanup: The first thing to look into when you have unruly brows is if they need a cleanup. When is the last time you removed some of the excess hair around your brows? This is important to do to ensure your brows have a defined arch and shape that flatters your face. Make sure to work with your brow artist the first time you’re removing a lot of excess hair to make sure you don’t remove too much or too little and make sure your brows fit your face well. Types of brow cleanup include waxing, threading, sugaring, and tweezing. It’s recommended to only tweeze if you’re going to try something at home to avoid burning yourself or accidentally ripping off too much hair.
Brow Lamination: Brow lamination is a chemical process that makes your brows appear thicker and fullers while making them more manageable. This process manipulates the hairs so they start to grow in the correct direction. This process is formulated to work on even the most stubborn brows! Results last an average of 6-8 weeks. Your brow lamination service can be combined with brow waxing and/or brow tinting to complete the look.
Tinting: By tinting the eyebrows, this makes them appear darker and more defined. This service is recommended every 2-3 weeks. This service pairs really well with a brow cleanup, like an eyebrow wax,
Brow Makeup: There are three types of brow makeup you can use to fill in your brows everyday to get rid of sparse areas, make them look more defined, and enhance your shape. These products include pencil, powder, and pomade – the 3 P’s! Powder is your best bet for the most natural looking brow, followed by pencil for a happy medium, and finally pomade for a more dramatic brow. Powder and pencil are easy to blend out with a spoolie, so make sure you’re fluffing them out after filling them in!
Brow Gel: This step can be done after you’ve applied brow makeup to seal in the look or by itself for natural looking brows that stay in place all day. My favorite is the Anastasia Brow Freeze because it’s clear and a TINY amount *I cannot emphasize this enough* goes a long way. It should take you a while to finish it and your brows should stay in place alllll day.
