There are many men who do not know how to properly shape their eyebrows. Properly shaped eyebrows can really shape your face and give you a sharper, more finished look. If you do not know how to properly shape your eyebrows, go to a beauty salon to have a professional do the job for you. The following guide will walk you through the basics of having your eyebrows shaped for the first time.
Consider the Shape
The stylist who will be shaping your eyebrows will not start removing any hair from your face without discussing the shape of your eyebrows. For men, usually the tops of the eyebrows are the only portion that is waxed. This creates a groomed look without looking too overdone.
The bottoms of your eyebrows will be tweezed slightly to remove any straggling hairs, but they will not be shaped. This will give your eyebrows a natural look. You can choose to have the tops of your eyebrows shaped to create a straight line or to have a slight curve. The decision is ultimately up to you.
Consider the Cost
Eyebrow waxing can vary in price dramatically. There are some salons that charge more than $50 for one eyebrow waxing session. However, you do not have to pay a fortune to get your eyebrows waxed. You will be doing it on a regular basis, so be sure to consider what cost you can afford and do not be afraid to go to a different salon if you are not happy with the service you receive at a salon.
Some salons offer member benefits where you can build up points toward free treatments for every eyebrow wax you get, this can be a great way to save even more money on the overall cost of your beauty regimen.
Consider the Wax
Salons choose the wax that they want to use on clients. After you have your eyebrows waxed, the area will be slightly tender and red for a few minutes. If the tenderness and redness do not subside after a few minutes, you may be allergic to the wax that the salon uses. You may need to try a few different waxes before finding the one that feels the best for your skin.
Once your eyebrows are properly shaped, you need to maintain them by going back to the salon on a regular basis. Depending on how quickly your hair grows, you may need to go to the salon once every two to four weeks.
