Men, are you tired of searching the net, only finding products and pages that are geared for women? Are you starting to feel like you shouldn’t want to wax or shape your eyebrows? Well, don’t feel like that. Regardless of what sex you may be, shaping eyebrows is a perfectly good grooming habit to get into. In this article, we will discuss some eyebrows shaping tips just for you men.
Before you Begin:
Disinfect the eyebrow area. If you are wondering why you should bother, it can be beneficial in two ways. First, it loosens up the roots of the hair you want to be removing thus making it easier to get rid of. If you disinfect, it keeps germs from being able to enter into the pores of the newly plucked area allowing you to avoid any irritation or red spots. In order to disinfect properly, use a cotton ball and hydrogen peroxide to swab the area under and over the eyebrows where you will be working.
Attending to the Hair between the Eyebrows
A good majority of men like to address the excess hair in between their brows. You may have a unibrow or just a few stray hairs here and there. For the best groomed look, getting rid of those will leave you looking well kept. You will need to measure the distance from the rest of your brow to determine what should actually be removed. The last thing you want is to remove hair that should be there to give your brow a uniformed look. If you are uncertain of where you should avoid plucking, you may want to ask a professional or get someone else to help.
Shaping Your Brows
The last thing you want to do is to end up looking over manicured. Always be sure to follow you shape of your brows natural line. This makes for easier maintenance as well. If you find any hairs that are away from the rest of the group either above or below the brow, you will want to pluck these as well.
Do You Need a Trim?
Do you have thick full brows? Do you find that even when you have plucked the strays and smoothed it all out with the lines that you still look bushy and unkempt? Grab a pair of small scissors and a comb. Brushing the comb slowly through your eyebrow, and moving in the opposite direction of the hairs growth, simply trim the excess hair that you find comes up between the fingers of the comb. Make sure you only trim a small amount of hair at a time. The last thing you want to do is snip off too much and be left with a bald spot that can take weeks to grow back in.
Many times men will find that it is much easier to just go to a professional for eyebrow shaping. These professionals have been trained on the exact way to trim both men’s and women’s eyebrows for the best look for their faces. Being uneasy about completing a job you have never done before can lead to mistakes that may look worse than before you started. If you do want to attempt your own manicure job, and you don’t have someone to help, just take it slow and easy.
