Know Your Eyebrows Shaping Techniques

Eyebrow ShapingKnowing your Eyebrows Shaping Techniques

The eyes may be the window to the soul, but the eyebrows are the frames to those windows. This is why it’s so important to keep them “on fleek” as the youth likes to say.

The good news is that eyebrows shaping does not have to be a literal pain anymore. There are a variety of techniques available – techniques that you can learn at Face to Face Beauty & Make-up Design School. Our Head office in Houghton Estate and our West Rand office in Roodepoort offer the same deals, so when it comes to choosing your study location, you are spoiled for choice with us.

Some of Our Favourite Eyebrows Shaping Techniques

1) Waxing:

This traditional and efficient method involves the application of a hot wax strip to the areas that need shaping. The hair is then pulled out by the root, ensuring a more long-lasting result. The only con to this is that it can leave the skin feeling irritated and red.

2) Threading:

This is fast becoming one of the go-tos of eyebrows shaping. It involves using a thin thread that is rolled over the eyebrow to shape and remove eyebrow hair. Think of it as the perfected version of plucking.

3) Tinting:

This method is great if hair removal is not necessary, but you still want to shape the brow. It uses a dye to fill in the requested shape and can last up to six weeks. It is semi-permanent.

4) Microblading:

Like tinting, this is a semi-permanent solution, though it can last up to 18 months. It makes use of a fine needle to draw hair along the brow line. Since it lasts so long, it is a great low-maintenance solution.
