Yes, indeed! Men need regular eyebrow maintenance, just like women do. It’s not just the ladies who are interested in shaping their eyebrows. Men’s eyebrow shaping is becoming increasingly popular too.
Why do men need to groom their eyebrows?
I’ll get straight to the point.
Bad eyebrows can hurt your appearance. Out-of-control eyebrows or a unibrow are never a good look on a man. If you do have bushier eyebrows than you’d like, or you want to get rid of the mono-brow look then a men’s eyebrow shaping session is for you.
So, what makes a good set of eyebrows for a man?
A) Perfectly sculpted OR
B) Just a tidy OR
C) Slightly bushy
Well… the answer is all of the above.
There are many options for your brows no matter what look you’re trying to achieve.
Waxing is the most common hair removal technique. Most salons offer it but choose a technician who has experience with men’s eyebrows, as they will know how to keep the look natural and subtle.
The process itself is quite simple: hot wax is applied onto the area you want waxed and once it hardens, the wax is removed with a quick motion, pulling out the hairs.
Waxing is very practical, as regrowth takes weeks, even months.
Using tweezers is a great way to define the shape of your brows and precisely groom them.
As the method removes one hair at a time, it can create perfect results. Not only that, it’s ideal for gents who only need to remove minimal hair and value an exact finish.
Trimming the longer hairs of your brows is a great way to keep them looking neat and your face appearing handsome.
If your eyebrows are very bushy and you want them thinned out a little bit, getting them trimmed is a great option.
Threading is a bit different, although the principle is the same. The technician removes the hairs by twisting thin, cotton threads and catching the unwanted hairs. Since just a few hairs are caught in one go, and since skin suffers no trauma, threading is less painful and a lot gentler. Each hair is removed individually, so it is done with maximum precision.
If you have sensitive skin, threading is a better alternative.
