DIY Eyebrow Waxing
In order to achieve the ‘perfect’ look, we often undertake endeavors which turn out to be quite stressful and painful in some cases. Waxing happens to be one of them. There are tons of waxing procedures out there, legs, arms, bikini, brazillian, and the topic that we’re discussing today, eyebrow waxing. They say the eyes are the window to the soul so the first thing a person notices about you is your eyes, and that’s why your eyebrow game needs to be absolutely, positively on point. You can’t afford any mess ups and definitely can’t be the person with the caterpillar eyebrows.
It’s a simple really, the eyebrow waxing. But you also have to be quite careful, because if you mess up you can’t hide it and the facial skin is quite sensitive so it’ll hurt a bit more if you’re not careful. Eyebrow waxing is one of the most common waxing procedures available in any salon. Its easy to do on your own as well, so if you have some experience with waxing then you can attempt on your own. Here are some guidelines to follow that will make the experience better for you:
Start by drawing out an outline with an eyeliner, it will give you a frame of reference. Also make sure that the hair is at least 1/8-inch long so the wax has enough length to grip.
Then we get to the waxing. Start with the bottom of the brow, pressing the strips on in the direction of the hair growth and pulling the strip off in the opposite direction.
Pull the strip off in one fast movement, the faster the better.
Apply some Aloe Vera Gel, preferably cooled, to the area to reduce stinging.
If you opt to go to a professional waxing salon, then you wont have to go through with the hassle. But let me walk you through it all the same, in case its your first time and you’re nervous about going. If your brows are on the bushier side, then they will be trimmed before the actual procedure. Next, your brow technician will cleanse the skin along the eyebrow area and apply a powder will to prevent wax from clinging to sensitive skin. He or she will apply the wax and adhere a strip to the area. Once the wax has cooled, the esthetician will rip off the strip quickly. Finally, he or she will use a wax cleanser to remove any residue and apply an aloe solution to soothe the skin.
A very simple process when you think about it, and also one of the most common waxing procedures being done in the salons. Whether you attempt it on your own, or have it done professionally, you now know what you’re in store for. Happy waxing!
