Want perfect brows?

perfect brows

We are no longer living in the days of pencil thin brows. Time to stop the tweezing and rethink your eyebrows. Here at Studio 229 we pride ourselves in staying up to date on hair and beauty trends to keep you looking hip! Natural, full, well shaped brows are really in right now.

As you get older and continue to wax and tweeze your eyebrows they may, over time, stop growing in. It is important to not over tweeze. If this happens there is still hope to have full, natural looking brows. Finding a good brow filler (pencil or powder) can create the illusion of perfect brows. Studio 229 also offers brow tinting which can help create that illusion.

Never had a brow wax? Want to complete your look and shape up your brows? Studio 229 Estheticians will take your unshaped brows and shape them to perfectly compliment your facial features. Brows should always start where the corner of the eye begins. The arch of your brow is found 3/4 of the way across the brow. Eyebrows are often done incorrectly when the arch is not far enough over and starts in the center of the brow. Thickness is always the clients preference but remember you can always wax more off. It is harder to grow them back in after extensive tweezing and waxing.

The Perfect Eye Brow Arch/Wax for Your Face

Eye brow Arch wax

I have seen so many people with their eyebrows plucked so thin that there is nothing left to wax. I have also seen people with so much hair on their eyebrows that it is one line known as the ever famous uni-brow. Believe it or not there is a bit of a science to waxing one’s brows. Based on the shape of the eye, the shape of the face and the natural growth of the hair on the brow itself.  The esthetician here at Studio 229 hair design and spa uses this things to know exactly how to wax the brow for the perfect shape that will enhance the shape of the brow and actually make the eye look more open. Here are a few simple tips to getting your brows to flatter your face shape. Here is an image of a beautiful eyebrow:

Start in the center, your brow should start at the same point in which the corner of your eye starts. Using a pencil or brush line up the base of your nostril and corner of your inner eye; this where your brow will begin. The arch of your brow is always most flattering when it is lined up with the outside iris. The length of your brow should end at the corner of your eye.

The biggest mistake is over plucking and making the brown to thin. Filling in your eyebrows works well to enhance the arch as well as giving your eyebrows a finished look. Eyebrow gels can help tame that wild few hairs.  Trimming long hairs will give your eyebrows a clean and polished finish. Here is a before and after image of someone who has filled in their eyebrows using a brush and not a pencil which tends to work best.
