Tips for perfect brows for your wedding day
Your brows are probably one of the last things on your to-do list as your wedding day approaches. Eyebrows are one of the most important features on a woman’s face. Not only do they frame your face and enhance the shape of your eye, they express emotions and give us a distinctive appearance.
As an artist, if I change the way you normally see your eyebrows I’ll change the way you see yourself. That is not what I want to do, so the discussion and a selfie of how you normally where your brows is vital during our consultation.
Getting Your Brows In Shape-Waxing vs. Threading
Grooming your brows and keeping up with a brow shape has changed so much over the years and I can really tell the decade a photo is from, just by the way the eye brows look in the photo. Hence the reason that we don’t want to go with the trend when it comes to your makeup look or your brow upkeep for the wedding.
So, let’s dig right in shall we. Waxing vs threading beinghealthful.com is quoted as saying “Threading uses a doubled-up cotton or polyester thread to quickly tweeze and remove hair from the root. A tweezer removes a hair at a time, but threading can remove sections of hair with each pass of the thread. The doubled-up thread is rolled over your skin, catches the hair, and pulls the hair out entirely”. “Waxing is the removal of hair using a resin or a wax to grab the hairs and pull them out entirely, from the root”.
Choosing which one is better is a battle as tough as Coke vs Pepsi. While we can compare lots of differences between waxing and threading, let’s focus on some of the more important factors, like cost, longevity and which one gives you a better end result, and of course, which one hurts more….
Your investment– Cost is important because you should know what you’re getting into. Cost almost always goes along with time, but in this comparison, that is not necessary true. Waxing typically costs more than threading, but waxing takes less time to do than threading.
Part of the reason behind the cost difference is that wax, muslin and other items used for sanitary reasons are a cost forward. Experts that thread eyebrows have very little cost to perform the service. It’s also a good time to mention that it is imperative that you are trusting someone that is a true expert at shaping brows. Don’t trust just anyone. Ask for referral from family and friends that you trust. Heck, ask even a stranger who she goes to if you like the way her brows look. Please, don’t just lay down with anyone. One misstep and you will have patches of unevenness and possible uneven brows.
Choosing the right shape for your eyebrows
They say brows are sisters and not twins, but let’s not do this on purpose folks. Every face is different and no two brows are alike.
A good rule of thumb to achieve the right brow shape for the shape of your face is to begin at the side of the nostril, the highest point should be on a diagonal from the nostril to the center of the eye and the brow should end on a diagonal from the nostril to the center of the eye.
Typically thicker and fuller brows get a great shape with threading, while thinner or sparser brows do well with waxing because wax picks up baby fine hairs that threading can’t. You may need to try them both to see which result you like.
Achieving the right color
Brow tinting or dyeing your brows is a great way to temporarily enhance and define the shape of your brows and really impact your look.
Safety first! DO NOT use hair dye on your face! Hair dye is made for use on your scalp and is way to harsh to be used on the delicate skin around your eyes.
To make brows appear fuller and add definition choose a color that is 1-2 shades darker than you hair color. If you’ve recently colored your hair to a lighter shade you may be tempted to lighten the color of your brows, you don’t want to stray too far from your natural hair color in this instance, otherwise you may see some strange results when your natural shade grows out.
While dyeing your eyebrows is a pretty simple process we recommend you do not DIY, please visit a professional!
