Three Types of Plucking Eyebrow

Eyebrow plucking helps you to beautiful eyebrows. It starts with a good tweezer and an good idea of what brow shape fits your face.


1. Using Eyebrow Shaver

Probably the most time-honored form of hair removal in the United States is shaving or depilatories. Shaving is best performed when the hair has been thoroughly hydrated, i.e. after a bath or shower. Although liquid or bar soap may be used, shaving "creams" are most popular because they don't run down the neck, face, or leg in the process of actually shaving.

They also serve as an indicator as to "where you have been" in the shaving ritual. When hair is cut with a razor, the tip becomes squared off. This makes the new growth feel stubbly or "thicker." Shaving does not stimulate hair growth.

The new growth feels more coarse because the tip of the hair has a sharp cut edge, rather than a natural tapered. Plucking, electrolysis, and laser removal result in regrowth of a naturally soft tapered hair. Chemical depilatories work essentially the same as shaving, but the tip of the hair removed at the skin line, is somewhat blunted because it has been chemically dissolved, rather than cut.

3. Guidelines on Shaving Your Eyebrows

  • Shave at a time when you are comfortable and not rushed.
  • Choose to shave in a location that is most comfortable for you. It can be done in a variety of ways like in the shower or while taking a bathe. Do what works best for you and what you are most comfortable with.
  • Use a safety, disposable razor - never share a razor with a friend or family member.
  • Make sure that the area you are shaving is wet.
  • Apply a hypoallergenic shaving cream or lotion. Do not use body wash, which has perfume and can be an irritant.
  • After you are done, apply a moisturizer to the area you have shaved (again, make sure it is not perfumed). This may help to prevent dry skin and possible ingrown hairs.

The excess growth of hairs surrounding the natural line of the orbit (eye socket) should be removed to give a clean and attractive appearance. Eyebrows that are shaped correctly add to the attractiveness of the face. They open the face, and especially the eye area.

If you simply trim the eyebrow hair or shave the hair it should grow back. All the genetic information about length, thickness and color of the hair is in the root. Trimming and shaving will leave the root intact. Tweezing eyebrow hairs removes them from the root. Often hairs tweezed again and again will not grow back. Eyebrow hair grows very slowly so it may take a while.

Some people have very sensitive skin in the eye area. To help them tolerate the discomfort, there are a few things you can try. A light application of baby numbing gel for gums, or an ice cube applied to the area for a few seconds to numb the skin both work well.

Eyebrow Tweezing Tips

  • Tweezing or snipping should be done weekly. Attempting to accomplish the entire brow in one sitting will likely lead to mistakes.
  • Teething gel for babies can be used to deaden the pain if you find tweezing very uncomfortable.
  • Pull the skin taut and remove hairs as close as possible to the root.
  • Pluck in the direction of the growth.
  • Shape your eyebrows by plucking from underneath rather than from above to create a natural arch.
  • To close the pores of the skin after plucking, use an astringent or soothe irritated skin by applying warm petroleum jelly.
  • Avoid tweezing (if possible) around menstruation. It simply hurts more at this time.
  • To avoid tweezing into a shape you later regret, first use a white eyeliner pencil to color in the areas under your eyebrows which you think should be plucked.
