How to Get the Perfect Brows?

How to Get the Perfect Brows?

You’ve been admiring the seemingly perfect shape of your friend's brows for years. How do they do it? Well, shaping and maintaining brows isn’t as scary as you might think. We’re going to show you how. 

If you do your own makeup, then you can learn to wax your own brows.

We promise it’s not scary to wax your own brows. People usually have two big fears about waxing their own brows: finding the perfect shape and making them perfectly symmetrical. Well, your face isn’t symmetrical, so don’t expect your brows to be either. When it comes to finding the perfect shape - don’t worry - it’s already there.

Step 1: Choosing the Right Products and Tools.

What are your brow waxing needs? Are you shaping or maintaining? If you’re maintaining, need to remove large amounts of hair, or If you’re a beginner or apprehensive start with brow maintenance and choose Parissa Brow Shaper Wax Strips. These tiny pre-waxed strips require no heating or spreading, so they’re quick and easy to use.

If you’re more experienced, looking for precision shaping or if you have very stubborn hair, then the Parissa Face & Brow Waxing Pen is the solution for you. The tapered and slender tip of the pen dispenses salon wax precisely on the contours of the brow and even on individual strands of hair.

  

Trim and tweeze long or unruly hairs using the Parissa Precision Tweezers and Parissa Trimming Scissors.

Step 2: Preparing the Eyebrow

Sitting in front of a mirror, use the eyebrow brush included in the eyebrow wax strips and waxing pen kit, toothbrush or clean mascara wand to brush your brows upwards into its natural shape. Using the Parissa Trimming Scissors, trim long or unruly hairs that extend beyond the edges of your eyebrow.

Use this image as a guide to determine the start, arch, and end of your brow line. The start of your brow should line up with the far side of your nose (1). The highest point, the arch, should be in line with the centre of your eye (2) and the end of your brow should taper at the point that would meet an imaginary line drawn from the edge of your nose, past the outer edge of your eye (3).

This general guide will help you identify the areas outside of your natural shape for hair removal. Once you have brushed your brows and determined the natural shape and arch, the “clean up” areas will become obvious.

At Parissa we’re all about natural beauty, so try to keep as much of your natural shape as possible and keep your brows full instead of removing too much hair. Focus your attention on only removing the hairs below and between the brows while keeping your natural shape instead of replicating someone else’s brows. The best shape for your face is the natural shape of your brow.

Step 3: Applying the Wax

Now that you’ve outlined the natural shape of your brows, all that’s left is to remove the unwanted hairs outside the outlined area to uncover your beautiful brows.

If you’re using the Parissa Brow Shapers (Mini Wax Strips), cut the strips with scissors to separate each mini strip. Gently rub the strip between your fingers and slowly peel apart the strip to reveal two applications.

When using the Parissa Brow Waxing Pen, first heat the product as directed. Twist the pen until a small drop of wax appears on the tip. Spot apply the wax in small sections, create a thin layer. Less is more with our Warm Wax.

 

Step 4: Aftercare Oil and Post waxing skincare

Similar to tweezing the eyebrows, it’s normal to have some redness following your treatment. Don't worry, this will disappear within 20 minutes. Applying the provided aftercare oil also helps reduce redness and soothe the skin.

For both the Parissa Brow Shaper Wax Strips and the Parissa Brow Waxing Pen: Clean excess wax away with oil (provided in the kit) and not with water.

At-Home Brow Waxing is cost-effective and quick

Your first attempt at brow waxing may take 20 minutes or so, but with practice, you'll be a super savvy brow shaper in no time. Think of all the time and hassles you’ll save not having to make appointments, traveling to salons or finding parking! Even if you prefer going to the salon for your brow shaping, why not try maintaining do your own brows by touching up the esthetician’s design?
