As I was in DESPERATE need of doing my brows, I thought I'd throw a tutorial your way. Now please keep in mind, I really truly recommend getting your brows done by a pro, as they can easily be goofed up. Also, all brows are different. It completely depends on what you already have to work with, your natural shape, and what you want; such as full & natural or high arch & thinner. I always consult before I mark my brow territory & then show you what I'd like to remove & keep & so forth. Most pros should do this unless you've been going to the same person & really happy with your shape. Shape does depend on your face too!! Everyone should get a customized brow as in everyone's face is different & natural brow is different too. Also some good tips to know! Both brows are never truly 100% identical. Overly thin brows are out & steer away from hooks or question marks. Brows should have a little more density & rhythm...they should connect! As we head into tinting....don't EVER tattoo your brows!!!! This should never ever happen! It never looks good on anyone!!!! Cheers to your best brows! : )
|Set up for waxing & tinting. Should be very clean & Aesthetician should use|
a new stick for each wax application.
|1. Measure "start" of brow by aligning stick with|
corner of outer nostril straight up.
|2. Measure arch by aligning stick with|
outer edge of nose/corner running
straight through pupil. This
can change depending on width of face & nose. FYI
|3. Align stick with corner of nose & outer edge|
|4. Note: marks made for start, arch, & end.|
I measured the other brow between photos.
|5. Connect the lines. Your brow shape should have|
straight lines connecting your start, arch, & end.
|6. Comb brow hairs to prep for trimming.|
|8. The last half of the brow should be combed|
downward & trimmed with scissors curving down.
|9. Start by waxing the middle area. Apply|
muslim strip pressing up & down. Taught the skin
& yank muslim in a downward motion.
|7. The front half of the brow should typically be trimmed up top|
with the slanted scissors curved up.
|10. Apply wax to top of brow to remove fuzz.|
Press muslim in direction of hair growth.
Typically from start of brow to arch. Taught skin &
pull in opposite direction.
|11. Follow with top from arch to end. |
Follow the same directions & don't
forget to taught the skin.
|13. Apply wax from arch to end. Follow with muslim.|
|12. Apply wax from start to arch. Always press|
muslim in direction of hair growth & pull in opposite
|15. Squirt the same amount of developer ......|
|16. Mix with applicator brush.|
|17. Apply color to brow hairs.|
|Color is light & becomes darker...|
|End result of my color choice|
