It’s no secret that well-defined brows can transform your face by framing your eyes and enhancing your overall face shape. There are many methods to choose from to achieve the sculpted look, including plucking, threading and waxing. Waxing is probably the most common method of the three.
I was 13 years old when I got my eyebrows waxed for the first time, and, not even exaggerating, it was life-changing. Though the metamorphosis of bushy to slim thicc brows was nothing short of magical, I was a nervous wreck going into the whole process. My first experience was nothing like how I imagined it, and honestly, it’s different every time I get my brows done.
I picked up a lot of brow waxing knowledge in the bi-weekly trips I made to my Taiwanese brow guru during the four years that waxing was my go-to. (I’ve since switched to threading.) Here are four pro-tips on eyebrow waxing when you’re new to it, from a formerly dedicated brow-waxer.
