You’ve probably noticed just how many different types of tweezers there are when getting one at your favourite beauty supply. And what are each of them for anyway?
Whether for removing stubborn ingrown hairs, plucking the tiny fine hairs around your arch, or applying a pair of falsies, there’s a tweezer for that. In this article, we’ve rounded up the different types of tweezers and their uses.
We’ll talk about at least seven different types of eyebrow tweezers. That sounds like many, but we’ll explain what each can do quickly and easily.
Point tip tweezers are the best eyebrow tweezers for precision work. They are ideal for removing the finest of hairs, hard-to-get ingrown hairs, or splinters. But the tip is very sharp, so you must have plenty of light, good vision, and steadiness of hand with this one. And practice a lot of caution, too!
Here is a staple for your brow routine and the most popular tweezer out there. Slant tip tweezer has a pointed tip and straight edge.
With the pointed tip, you can reach for a specific hair or a splinter, whilst with the straight edge, you can easily tweeze coarse or stubborn hairs from your eyebrows or chin area. Slant tip tweezers are the best type of tweezers for quick brow plucking.
You can also use slanted tip tweezers for applying false lashes.
Straight tip tweezers have a larger surface on their tip, so they are great for removing several hairs at once. And straight tip tweezers allow an excellent firm grip when held at a straight angle. This tweezer is great for both women who are beginners at tweezing and those who have been tweezing for years.
Here is a combination of pointed and slanted tweezers. Pointed slant tip tweezers allow for more control and grip when plucking normal to fine hairs. The pointy tip is for more precise plucking of fine hairs, whilst the slant tip is for easily gripping strands like the classic slant tip.
Round tip tweezers are one of the special types of tweezers that allows you to pluck many hairs at once. But the difference is that these tweezers have round edges, which means there are no sharp corners, and they are great for tweezing at different angles.
The round tips are gentle on the skin and help grip the hair and hold it until you pull it out. So these are the best eyebrow tweezers when your hands aren’t steady, or you have sensitive skin.
Arched-claw tweezers will provide more leverage because it will make it easier to see what hairs you have trapped. This style can be handy when tweezing harder-to-see areas around the bikini line or short or light-colored hairs.
Whilst they come in different tip shapes, the idea with the wide grip tweezers is for extra comfort and control. Wide grip tweezers are also the best type of tweezers for those with mobility issues, as the wider body allows for better grip. What is great with these tweezers is that you can achieve the same precision as a regular tweezer.
The type of tweezer you choose will depend on many factors, including your desired goals. Here are tips to get the right type of tweezer.
Now you know the different types of eyebrow tweezers and how to choose one, here is how you can tweeze your eyebrows effectively.
There are different types of tweezers for eyebrows, and they do different things, too. Point tip, slant tip, and straight tip tweezers are some of them.
Some are great for precision work, some for removing several hairs all at once, and others are more special, like providing extra comfort and control. Whatever your need is, there’s likely one type of tweezer that will get the job done.
With many types of tweezers for eyebrows, picking the right pair can be confusing. Some tips we have shared include looking at the shape of the tip, the material the tweezer is made of, and a tweezer with lots of tension.
