Since the boom of the big, bold brow: shaping, designing and maintaining eyebrows has become more of an art form and iconic beauty trend then a quick wax and tweeze.
It’s no doubt that the desire to create the best brow is the ULTIMATE GOAL for every talented brow artist out there... 🤷🏼♀️so why are you still popping into the local nail salon to get a quick brow wax?!
It’s time to to see a brow specialist – professionals trained to give you the best brows of your life.
#1 / Have an idea of the style of brow you’d like to achieve
While there are plenty of brow professionals out there, each has a different style. Some may help you achieve a more natural finish, while others can help you create a more striking look, so it’s a good idea to do some research before you book your appointment.
Why not bring in any celebrity brow inspiration you may have. Sometimes you may have a bundle of images and none of the brows look the same, however there is always a common point with each brow and it’s my job as an artist to see what it is that attracts you to each image.
Always remember though, your brow shape depends on what Mother Nature gave you.
#2 / There are different ways to get your brows shaped
Different artists may have different go-to methods for giving your brows their optimal shape – whether that’s waxing, tweezing or threading. When going in for your first appointment, always let your artist know if you have reactive skin so they can decide the best hair removal system for you.
#3 / Book a longer appointment for your first time
At So Glamorous we like to spend some time at the beginning of your brow appointment to get to know your brow history (like that serious over-plucking addiction in the 90s) and goals. Having extra time will also ensure your brows get the attention they deserve.
Once we shape your brows we always fill them in with brow products, so you leave feeling like a #bombbrowbabe. Don't be afraid to ask us about the best ways to care and style your brows at home
#4 / Don’t touch your brows for as long as possible pre-appointment
To give your brow artist as much to work with as possible, leave your brow hairs alone for as long as possible.
The more hair we have to work with the better. However this can be a bit much for some people, so at least four weeks can be a good amount of time before visiting a brow artist. We strongly recommend a lash & brow serum or hair, skin and nail supplement to help speed up the process.
#5 / Tell your brow artist if you’ve recently had a facial
Always let your brow artist know if you have changed your skin care or had any facials in recent days, any change in your skin care can affect the outcome. There is a risk of skin being taken off if you have used retinol or vitamin A or had a facial in the last seven days.
#6 / Don’t expect a complete overhaul after one visit
Yes, a brow professional can transform your brows, but depending on your starting point and what you want to achieve, it may take some time to see progress so be patient.
If you have a brow that needs growing out, sometimes you may see very little change, as you may be waiting for hair to grow out. Have faith that your brow artist has listened to you and will get you to your goal brows.
On the flipside, if you’ve never or barely touched your brows, you can expect to see stellar results immediately.
