Do you have thick (read: bush) eyebrows? With that much brow real estate, you can only trust an aesthetician trained in the art of brow grooming -- and yes, it is an art. Luckily, just as nail salons specialize in manis, there are now boutiques that focus entirely on brows.
Our beauty editor Amanda Flores stopped at the Benefit Brow Bar on her quest to keep her full brows in check. Finally, she was able to tame her caterpillars -- once and for all:
1. Brow Mapping
First, the aesthetician’s will plan out the best shape to compliment your face structure. Using natural features, like your nose and eyes, she will map out the length, height and thickness by finding each start and end point, then literally connecting the dots with a brow pencil.
2. Waxing and Trimming
Second, once you have the drawn-on outline of your ideal brow, the brow pro will remove anything outside the line and finish by snipping longer hairs.
Third, at the end of the appointment, she applies a bit of makeup around your brows to cover up any telltale signs of hair removal. You'll never leave with that red, irritated just-waxed look!
4. Brow Essentials
Fourth, don't forget about these essentials! Just like the rest of your face, brows need makeup, too. Keep these handy for instant wow factor:
