How to tame unruly brows feature img

Unruly eyebrows seem to have a mind of their own and it can be difficult to tame and deal with misbehaving hair. Whether you have a few stray hairs that point up, or hairs that point in different directions, when your eyebrow hairs refuse to behave, there are some simple and quick remedies that you can do right at home to get your brows back in line before your next brow appointment.

Things You’ll Need:

 

  1. Eyebrow brush or spoolie
  2. Eyebrow wax or gel

What You’ll Do

  1. Using an eyebrow brush, or spoolie brush your eyebrows up and outward. Repeat this step a few times until most of your eyebrow hairs are laying flat and smoothly down.
  2. Next, apply a brow-taming wax or gel product. You can usually find these in stores that sell cosmetics. An example of a good taming wax is Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Primer , which comes in a convenient pencil form. Simply run the product over the brows and the wax will apply a natural, yet firm hold.

If using a product that contains a brush applicator, simply run the brush through the individual eyebrows strands. If any hairs remain, I recommend seeking a brow specialist, as cutting, trimming or plucking brows can often distort the appearance of the brows, especially unruly ones.

However, if it’s an absolute must, I always tell our clients to brush down the hair and cut the tips of the curl. I suggest doing it slowly, hair by hair before going in a cutting all in one chunk, to avoid making any mistakes.

Warning:

When trimming unruly brows, do NOT cut the length at the beginning of highest point of your arch to the end. While it may seem that you hairs are unreasonably long, long hair on the ends of the brows tend to masquerade sparse areas and make the brow end look fuller and longer. So keep them in order to achieve a neater, fuller look.



Trusting the Process: The Importance of Trust in Microblading

You’ve tried every solution known to man to remedy your brows, and you’ve finally decided that microblading was the best solution for you. You find a reputable specialist, schedule your consultation and you’re all ready to go. You arrive at said location, eagerly ready to flaunt your news brows, and after a few minutes of talking with your specialist you realize one big problem: your specialist doesn’t trust your opinion and you don’t trust theirs.

When it comes to microblading, trust is one of the biggest factors in achieving a flawless, natural look, if not THE most important factor. And it’s not just clients trusting the specialist, it’s the specialist also trusting the client.

Since microblading is considered an art, it’s easy to understand why there can differences in opinions. Your client may want arched brows to a degree you find absurd, and your specialist wants to give you brows as dark as Groucho Marx.

But art after all, is a highly debatable subject.

So how do you come to compromise?

It’s important to remember that each party brings a valuable asset to the team: the client knows the look they want to achieve, however your area of expertise is to craft and eyebrow that they didn’t even know was possible.

Therefore, when sitting down with a brow specialist or client, it’s important to keep an open mind and try to not let preconceptions or stubbornness guide your adjustment. In doing so, you’ll ensure that you both have a smooth and fun process.

Like haircuts, when it comes to eyebrows, all shapes do not fit one size. While getting perfect eyebrows depend on a number of factors, what it really boils down to is matching your eyebrows with the dimensions of your face.

But how do you deter what brows go with what face? Don’t worry, we’ve got you’ve covered. Check out our list of the best eyebrows shape for each face out there, so you can find your dream, golden arches.

When it comes to square faces, the jaw line is the strongest feature. Therefore, it’s priority to balance a strong jaw with a strong brow, or to soften the appearance of the jaw
with soft curves. Angled brows, for example do a great job at creating this balance.

When getting your brows done, or a thicker stronger colors and shape with balance. Think Robin Wright.

Round Faces

As mentioned in the name, round faces create a rounded, more widened look, and the last thing you need is for your brows to make your face look any rounder.

To give your face a longer look, create a higher arch and stay away from arches that have a more rounded look. Think Kate Upton.

Oblong Faces

Opposite of the round face, the oblong face appears to long in length, therefore the idea eyebrow look will be take make the face appear shorter. To achieve this look, aim for a brow that has more of a flat look (not to high of an arch, but not a extremely low arch). Creating a flat look will give balance to your face and make the jaw line appear smaller. Think Jennifer Connolly.

Heart Faces

Heart faces have a lot of curves, especially near the jaw area. To balance the shape of the jawline and to feature your beautiful heart shape, it’s best to round out your eyebrows. In doing so, you’ll achieve a beautiful natural look that creates a very soft and elegant look. Think Reese Witherspoon.

Diamond Faces

Diamond faces have sharp angles at the highest peak of their faces; the cheek bones. The goal with diamond faces is to make the face appear less wide.

To do so, curve the eyebrow and it’s widest point, to make the face appear more slender. Think Halle Berry.

Oval Faces

The Oval face is one of the most universal shapes and can virtually handle any eyebrow shape. However, be mindful that because the face is already oval, you want to stray away from brows that will make your face look more rounded. 

Soft angled eyebrows are idea in creating a soft balance and bringing out your best features. Think Jessica Alba.
