Highlight Your Eyes with Beautiful Brows
Professionals use a variety of methods for creating the perfect brow. The key, we’ve learned, is to get your shape done by our experts, and then maintain it between appointments. A perfect brow is a little work, but well worth the effort!
This technique is the most simple and the most commonly used for eyebrow maintenance. Make sure to let our specialist know what look you are looking for and feel free to let them give you some insight as to what might enhance your facial appearance and bring out your eyes. Tweezing is the simple maneuver of removing eyebrow hair one by one, and the procedure is usually minimally painful or not even painful at all. The time of the procedure might take longer compared to waxing and threading, but if not a lot of hair is involved or if it is a touch up, then tweezing is the best way to go while visiting us.
This technique is best performed by an esthetician at our spa. It involves wax (can be cold or hot, but we use hot) that is applied in the surrounding area of your eyebrow shape, which is then pulled off in the opposite direction of your hair growth to completely remove the hair. Not only will having your eyebrows waxed at a spa save you time and trouble, but also a more precise and overall better appearance will result. Your eyebrow wax can last longer than a tweeze, and will result in less frequent brow reshaping sessions. Waxing can be a bit painful, but the esthetician will be very careful and aware of your needs, so any discomfort should be minimal. And it only lasts for a minute to two.
This is a depilatory technique that originated long ago in the Middle East, in which a piece of cotton thread is twisted into a double strand. This thread is then applied to the brow area. Unlike tweezing, where hairs are removed one by one, the thread can pick up an entire line of hair and remove it at once. Since the hairs are removed at the follicle, threading is considered one of the longer lasting techniques “effect wise” where you won’t have to go back for a touch up for up to a month or longer. Since an entire line of hair is removed at a time, this particular technique may also sting a little more than a tweezing, but again, will only last a moment.
Sugaring can be less painful than waxing, because the substrate sticks to the hair without attaching to the skin, may be applied at room temperature or heated to a lukewarm temperature, preventing burning. In sugaring, either a “heated sugar mixture” can be covered with a strip of fabric, or spread directly on the skin. With the strip method, the area to be epilated is typically dusted with powder prior to application of the sugaring solution, which is spread on with a spatula, tongue depressor, or by hand. After the sticky paste is applied to the skin in the direction of hair growth, a strip of porous cloth or paper is pressed into the preparation, and “lifted” or “zipped off” in the opposite direction of hair growth, taking hairs with it.
Obtaining and maintaining beautiful brows usually requires a little time up front spent with our experts, followed by periodic cleanup at home. A professional reshape after the original appointment usually requires less time, as the work becomes depilating a pre-defined area vs. creating the original shape. The time spent is well worth the polished, lovely look you achieve; a look that finishes off the simplest or most sophisticated ensemble with ease.
