The Brows | Maintaining Them

If you're going to be filling in those brows then you're going to need to maintain them, so you've gone a nice 'canvas' to work with. I luckily have never over-plucked my brows or used a razor to shave them, so it's been really easy for me to create the shape I want them to be as I haven't had to wait for them to grow out etc. However, if you did over-pluck those brows, there are plenty of products out there that can help you out or just be patient. In order to maintain those eyebrows, there are various ways one can go about it, this is so we can keep them tidy, maintain its shape and be rid of the monobrow. Everybody has a different technique and that's ok!

THREADING -  This has become really popular over the last couple of years due to it being very quick, cheap and easy. This is my mum's personal preference and she says that she only has to pay £5 or less. Although I think this is a good idea, you need to make sure you find a woman or man who does the job to how you like it and doesn't ignore what you want. So, on your first trip I would recommend talking about what you ant to achieve and they'll make it work for you. Then, the more you go, the more comfortable you'll be with them and trust them. The general idea is that a thread is used to remove the hair, the thread tends to remove more than one hair at a time and is very precise and clean and is apparently quite painless.There are lots of places that offer to do this, Superdrug has a counter and lots of shopping malls have stalls on the shop floor too. 

WAXING -  This can be quite risky if you're doing it DIY as there are so many horror stories due to it going wrong or the wax not being warm enough! Therefore, I suggest going to a beauty salon where they're qualified and know what they're doing. I've never had my eyebrows waxed, as I worry they might get a bit too wax-strip-happy! I'd rather have lots of brow hair then less. However, having your eyebrows waxed is like threading in the sense that it's very quick and is painless to some. 

TWEEZING -  This is my personal favourite. When I was about thirteen my mum plucked my brows for the first time and I thought it was so amazing, plus she has these tweezers from Malaysia which are so handy and easy to use. A lot of people use tweezers as it's easy to do it yourself at home, plus you know what look you want to achieve and can trust yourself. I find it super painless, but it's not as quick as the other methods, I do feel as if I need a 'eyebrow session' where I'll sit down with a mirror and spend time doing it. But, I like how if a stray hair pops up, I can just get rid of it asap, whereas with waxing and threading, you have to wait for a certain amount or a time limit. I love my Malaysian tweezers, they're such good quality and are like a scissor shape but with tweezers at the end.
