One of the simplest yet simultaneously most effective ways to feel fresh put together, and totally on point is to treat yourself to some much-needed “me time” and rejuvenate your eyebrows.
Whether you prefer regular plucking at home or in a salon, or more effective and long-lasting methods such as waxing or threading, here is everything you need to know about eyebrow treatments.
The most natural of the three principal methods of eyebrow trimming and shaping, threading is one of the most popular beauty treatments undergone by hundreds and thousands of men and women every single month.
Not only is threading the most natural method it is also considered to be the most effective, with the entire process—from start to finish—only taking a matter of minutes. Even though the process is relatively simple and short, always be sure to visit a professional and reputable venue such as Utopia—a beauty salon in Oxford where the clinicians have many years of experience in, and knowledge of, eyebrow treatments.
Eyebrow threading is a traditional way of shaping brows and the only tool your eyebrow technician will use is a piece of thread approximately twelve inches long. By looping and back-looping the thread around their fingers, they will essentially remove each individual hair one at a time, by twisting the thread back in on itself and pulling.
For a more permanent eyebrow treatment, why not consider tinting, which boasts a wide array of fabulous benefits. Essentially, brow tinting is the process of carefully dying the eyebrow hairs with the aim of creating considerably fuller-looking eyebrows. Although naturally, every individual is different, the tint itself generally lasts for just over a week and the color on the hair strands themselves for just over three weeks.
The main advantages of having your eyebrow professionally tinted include the following:
- A shorter morning beauty routine
- The darkening of lighter eyebrow hairs
- Entirely symmetrical eyebrows
- Definition to the shape of your eyebrows
- Impervious to water and smudges
- A youthful appearance
- Entirely pain-free
- Fuller-looking eyebrows
A sort of, if you will, the middle ground between threading and tinting, professional eyebrow waxing is an effective and relatively simple way to balance, shape, or thin out your brows.
There are a plethora of benefits of having your eyebrows professionally waxed, including the enviable perfect arch shape it can produce, which can never be achieved by yourself at home with a mirror. Waxing your eyebrows involves pulling the entire hair out from the roots, which results in a much longer time before the eyebrow hair begins to grow back than conventional plucking with tweezers.
When the hair does start to grow back, your eyebrows will naturally arch in a much more controlled way and a professional brow technician who knows what they’re doing can actually retrain your eyebrow hairs to grow a certain way. Additionally, after waxing, hair grows back much softer and manageable than it was previously.
