How to Select Your Favorite Brow Sculpting Technique
Managing brow care can be quite the hassle, especially when you’re just learning. Crafting the perfect brow takes a lot of talent and precision. Deciding on the appropriate shape for your face is a venture. Dealing with the discomfort is a nuisance. The whole process can be time consuming. So, it’s important to tackle the task with a technique that you feel comfortable using. Here’s the pros and cons of each approach to help you make the right choice for your brows:
Pros: By individually removing hair, there’s less room for error. If you’re just testing the waters, or have sensitive skin, this is your best bet.
Cons: Time, patience and a steady hand are required for this method. Since you’re sculpting your brows by hand, the precision can become time consuming.
Pain Factor: By using warm water before to help open the pore, you won’t experience as much pain. However, sometimes there is a tricky little hair that hurts like the dickens.
Pros: Removing hairs by using this technique is quick and easy. Waxing creates the cleanest, most defined brow shape.
Cons: You might look a little red and puffy afterwords, but it does go away. The redness is caused by the quick pull and the heat involved in the removal of hair. There is a slim, very slim, chance you might get burned from the heat, so be careful.
Pain Factor: Since it’s such a quick process, it’s relatively painless. Like ripping off a bandaid – the quick pull hurts, but right after, you’re fine!
Pros: Gives your brows a naturally polished shape, similar to tweezing, but quicker because you’re plucking multiple hairs at once.
Cons: Since the process is so quick, there’s a chance that too much hair is removed.
Pain Factor: It’s not painful, but it can cause a lot of discomfort.
Whether you approach these techniques on your own, or have them professionally done, it’s best to know which method you prefer. Feel free to venture out, but don’t feel pressured to manage your brows a certain way because your friend or sister says you should. Your brows are beautiful whether plucked, pulled or picked, so care for them in a way that’s best for you.
