Top Tips For Eyebrow Taming

Eyebrows are a subtle yet powerful aspect of your appearance. In the modern day, eyebrow taming is no longer just for women, and it’s an important part of an effective grooming routine. Even though sporting neat eyebrows is such a small change, it can dramatically improve your self-confidence. Continue reading to discover our top tips for men’s eyebrow taming.

Tidy Up Stray Hairs

When you have stray eyebrow hairs growing, it can leave you looking unkempt and somewhat scruffy. To instantly neaten the brow area, exfoliate the area with a gentle scrub in the shower to remove dead skin cells and soften the hair follicles. After your bath or shower, pull your skin taught and begin plucking straight away for an almost painless experience. Aim to remove any hairs between your eyebrows above your nose and below the brow bone. The Tweezerman Slant Tweezer will grip the hair with precision to remove it without tugging. Ensure to pull in the direction of the hair growth to avoid breaking the follicle and getting ingrown hairs.

Trim Excess Length

Alternatively, if you have bushy, stray hairs or just unruly brows, trimming them is a quicker, more efficient option. For a large group of unwanted hairs, use the Wahl Triple Head Personal Battery Trimmer to painlessly remove them in a similar fashion to shaving. Not only is it quicker than plucking out individual hairs, it can be re-done as soon as the hairs begin to emerge again.

For generally long eyebrows which appear wiry and unruly, simply use an eyebrow comb or brush to brush the hairs upwards. Next, take the slanted brow shaping scissors and trim the tips off the hairs. When you brush your eyebrows back into place, they’ll appear tidier and tamer. The Tweezerman Brow Shaping Scissors and Brush set features ultra-thin blades to give you maximum control. However, make sure to only trim your brows around once a month to avoid ending up with overly thin brows.

Don’t Go Overboard

Once you realise how much of a difference your eyebrows can make to your overall appearance, it’s easy to get carried away. Start off slowly removing hair rather than jumping straight in. Remember, you can always take more off, but you have to wait for eyebrows to grow back if you go overboard!
