The Basics of Eyebrow Waxing

perfect-and-clean-eyebrow-240x300Eyebrow waxing is one of the original and more popular forms of brow grooming. When you go in for your wax appointment, you’ll be seated in a waxing chair, and you’ll probably be in and out within 10-15 minutes. An eyebrow waxing is pretty straight forward. It’s simply getting your stray eyebrow hairs cleaned up with strips of wax.

Trimming and shaping is also part of the waxing process. Your beautician will help you achieve the perfect brow by trimming stray hairs. Trimming or plucking after eyebrow waxing helps to add extra definition to the brow.

The Eyebrow Waxing Process

The eyebrow waxing process starts with cleansing. Once your eyebrow area has been wiped clean, your beautician may apply a powder. The next step is waxing. The waxing is done with warm wax and a pellon or cloth strip. Waxing can be done with hard wax or soft wax. No strips are needed for hard waxing. With hard waxing, the wax is placed on the brow, it hardens, and it becomes like a strip itself. The hard wax or the soft wax strip is ripped off quickly, cleaning all the stray hairs from the brow area.

Is Eyebrow Waxing Painful?

Your first experience getting your eyebrows waxed may involve a little pain. Just like waxing any other area of the body, the process of ripping off hard wax or soft wax paper can pull at the skin and cause a stinging feeling. Don’t worry, the process is quick and easy, and the more you get your eyebrows waxed, the easier it will get. Once you get used to the waxing process, you may not feel bothered by the wax pulling at all.

Is Eyebrow Waxing Sanitary?

Cleanliness is key, especially when dealing with the face. Your eyebrow experience should include clean tools and a nice environment. Here are some things to look out for when you get your eyebrows waxed.

Typically, your brow tech should wear gloves on one or both hands. If your tech is not wearing gloves, they should be sure to thoroughly wash their hands before touching your face. You should also be mindful of your hands. Do not rush to touch your face after a wax; this could cause pimples and agitation.

Your tech should wipe your brow area before beginning the wax process. A clean brow will ensure that bacteria does not irritate your skin.

No double dipping. Once an eyebrow waxing stick has been dipped and used to touch your skin, it should be thrown away, and a new wax stick should be used for the second dip.

Choosing Your Perfect Eyebrow Shape

Everyone is unique, your distinctive features will help you decide what brow shape will best compliment your face. The five basic brow shapes are used to help you decide what brow will be best for you.

Here are some tips and common shapes that will help you choose your eyebrow shape:

If you have a round face

Compliment your beautiful round face with a sharp and defined brow. Adding some angles and definition to your face will enhance your soft round features.

If your face is square and sharp

When your face is very defined, with a sharp jaw or intense cheekbones, a nice round brow with soft, smooth angles helps to bring out the softness of your look and creates the perfect level of balance.

If your face is heart-shaped

When your face has an evolving shape you’d most benefit from a natural look for your brow. Keep a soft and modest arch. Keep it clean and bring attention to your uniquely shaped face.

If your face is oval shaped

A flat brow looks great with a long or oval face. Balance your face length by keeping your brows low and accentuating your lower face area.


Your perfect brow shape depends on your face. It also depends on the look and feel you are trying to achieve.
