Hey Guys, I got my eyebrows threaded for the first ever time around 3 weeks ago and as you know it can take only a matter of days for them to look on fleek completely untouched. So today, I decided I had had enough, and instead of going back to the salon to get them threaded again there is a few steps I took in order to make them look half decent again.
The very first step I made is to brush them through, it makes such a difference with just a little brush through – I use a little spoolie *Side note: How do you guys clean yours? Mine is in desperate need of a clean, but I am unsure of how to do it!
The next thing I do is to pluck all of the stray hairs, I get a lot of hairs in really odd places so I make sure they’re removed before I start on the actual brow. I then pluck the hairs that are very obviously outside of the brow shape, like the random hairs that make them look super bushy. I then brush through the brow again to ensure all loose hairs are removed.
Once I feel there is a slight brow shape again, I brush all the hairs upward to cut the end off with little scissors – I think they’re little nail ones?! I like to do this as it makes them look less messy because the hairs are shorter, and they cant stray away as much. I never brush them down to cut them though as I feel this makes the hairs a little too short, making it appear to have more sparse areas meaning I need to use more product and time to do them in the mornings.
The next thing I do is get my eyebrow razor and just go around the edges. I know so many people are against this, but I love to use them! It makes it so much easier to create a nice brow shape, by making the eye brows perfectly straight on the top – I don’t tend to use it on the bottom as I find it a little awakes and I’m too scared I’m going to cut myself as the skin there is a lot more soft.
I then go back and pluck the hairs I feel are now out of place and make the brow shape more precise, I create the arch as well when doing this. I don’t like too big of an arch as I feel this makes them look very unnatural on my face.
I like to do this myself as it saves me time because I don’t have to go into the salon and get them done. It also saves me money, why spend money when you can do it yourself to get you through a couple more weeks?! Its also SO much less painful! If you’ve ever had threading done you’ll know, I mean people say it gets less painful the more you do it. But I am not sure I want to go through that again!
What do you do to your brows when they need a touch up? Thanks for reading, Jade xo
