When in pursuit of the perfect brow shape, is it better to wax your eyebrows or is threading the way to go? As we know, anything is better than plucking, but there is one option that has can get you more bang for your buck.

In this video, we'll show you how to shape your eyebrows like a professional!

Waxing Your Eyebrows

Waxing is not only one of the most popular options of hair removal, but it is the quickest and most effective way to shape your brows. Like ripping off a band-aid, waxing is quick and over before you know it. It might cause a bit of pain or irritation, but it is worth it to have all of those unwanted hairs gone in one swift pull.

Eyebrow waxing is also a great option because it lasts a long time, usually at least a couple of weeks. The hair is taken directly from the root which makes the hair grow back slower, thus making your wax job last longer.

There are a couple different kinds of wax used in various salons but they all have the same result, beautiful brows.


Eyebrow threading is a relatively new trend that uses two twisted strands of thread, usually cotton, that grabs the hair and pulls it out. This technique takes a little more time than waxing does but if you have sensitive skin it is the best bet for you.

Threading causes much less irritation than waxing can and with sensitive skin it is always good to play it safe. With threading there is less direct contact with the skin, which means less redness when you are done. Also, if you take any medications that may make the skin more delicate and sensitive, threading is best option for you.

Overall, eyebrow waxing is your best bet when getting your eyebrows done. It makes very clean lines, is relatively inexpensive and, usually lasts at least two weeks. Threading is a great option if you are sensitive near your brows because it doesn’t have as much contact with your skin.

Whichever option you choose the perfect brow shape is the best way to highlight your features and make your eyes pop.
