How to Maintain Your Eyebrows


In general, people have eyebrows. The personal part of eyebrows is what you want to do with them, essentially, how you maintain your eyebrows. There really is an art when you want to maintain your eyebrows - you have to choose a shape, thickness, style, and more. You may even choose to get permanent eyebrows tattooed on, or get laser hair removal around parts of your eyebrows. The decision about how to maintain your eyebrows is personal, so make eyebrow decisions wisely.

When maintaining your eyebrows on a regular basis, you have many choices. You can choose to tweeze your eyebrows, wax your eyebrows or thread your eyebrows. Tweezing is the most economical option since it can be done at home by yourself, but waxing and threading are quicker and more precise. Eyebrow waxing and eyebrow threading are often done by professionals.

If you are first trying eyebrow maintenance, ask a professional for advice about shaping your eyebrows. An outside observer or professional can offer advice that you may not be able to see yourself. Tell the stylist about your preferences, such as thicker or thinner eyebrows, and then let the stylist advise you.

If you find an eyebrow stylist who does your brows perfectly, continue going to this person. It is worth paying a little extra or working with your stylist's schedule if the person does a great job maintaining your eyebrows.

Take a picture of your eyebrows after a particularly good styling. This way, you can show your eyebrow stylist the picture, or use it for reference when you maintain your eyebrows at home. Having a picture for reference will help you get your desired style in the future.

Brush your eyebrows and maintain them at home regularly by tweezing them. Keeping up with regular eyebrow tweezing will allow you to go out and have a professional maintain your eyebrows less frequently. If you do not maintain your eyebrows at home, you'll get to the point where you need to go to a professional for eyebrow maintenance because your brows will be out of control.

Stick by the "thicker is safer" rule. That does not mean that you should have thick eyebrows, but it does mean that when you are in doubt, go thicker rather than thinner. You can always thin out your eyebrows, but once you've made them too thin, you'll have to wait until you can change the style.

If you feel that you have made a permanent decision about how you like your eyebrows, you can make permanent changes to your eyebrows. One option is to have your eyebrows tattooed on with permanent makeup. I would not recommend this unless you are absolutely sure of this decision, since tattoos are permanent. Or, you can have laser eyebrow removal to shape your eyebrows. This is a good option for people with large eyebrows who would like a permanent solution.

Tips & Warnings

  • Be adventurous with your eyebrows. You may find a style that you really like, even if it's initially outside of your comfort zone.
  • Permanent makeup is (obviously) permanent, as is laser hair removal. Make sure to trust anyone who is doing a permanent eyebrow procedure on you.
  • Keep in mind that you may need to touch up permanent eyebrow makeup or laser hair removal in the future. While they are permanent, time can have visible effects on your eyebrows.
