Eyebrow Waxing, Shaping, and Much More
Beauty trends are taking a break from the bold and daring and emphasizing Au Naturelle. Barely-there makeup with lashes lightly swept with mascara is all the buzz, especially when rounded off with a good set of shaped brows. Achieving such a look is simple, especially with access to lash and brow treatments offered at The Brow Fixx.
Instead of just spreading wax on the brows and ripping it off, brow artists consider shape – using the client’s requests and face shape to sculpt the perfect set of brows. Each client is different, which is why consultations are key, especially when it comes to eyebrow waxing, eyebrow shaping, and much more.
Eyebrow Waxing – The OG of Brows
For those looking for brow waxing near Santa Monica, The Brow Fixx is the area’s premier brow-shaping spot with years of experience under one roof. When clients book an eyebrow waxing service, the first thing artists want to do is hold an in-depth consultation. Brow artists aim to chat about past brow experiences, expectations, brow goals, and any concerns with skin (like sensitivity or irritation).
After creating the blueprints, artists will get to work spreading warm wax where it’s needed to create the perfect shape. After a few tugs, most unwanted hair is removed, revealing a more defined brow shape. Artists will also use tweezers for stubborn hair left behind and trim hairs that stick out of place.
Artists finish up with witch hazel to cleanse the brows and aloe vera is applied to reduce any redness or irritation caused by waxing, as well as tighten pores. As an added bonus, a touch of powder, pencil, or gel is applied to the brows for a more defined, sculpted look right before the big reveal.
Eyebrow Waxing Vs. Eyebrow Shaping
If you book a run-of-the-mill wax, many salons will just take you back, slab wax on the brows, and pull, never really considering your shape. While some have had luck with these types of treatments, others have had brow disasters just having to wait until they grow back to forget the nightmare.
Brow shaping is the complete opposite and is typically combined with a treatment like eyebrow waxing or eyebrow threading. During a brow shaping, a brow artist will take a look at the eye shape, face shape, and current brow hairs, all while taking the client’s wishes into account. The goal is to help create the desired shape, doing so with a combo of waxing and possibly the application of pencil, gel, or powder products to complete the look.
Unlike most salons, The Brow Fixx includes eyebrow shaping in all eyebrow waxing services, even for returning clients. The idea is to maintain communication and understand exactly what each person wants out of their brows, tailoring each appointment toward finally achieving brow goals.
How To Find the Perfect Shape
We’ve all seen shaping tricks, using our noses and pupils as guides to creating the perfect brow shape. When shaping brows, artists will typically consider these three points, also taking your desired shape into account. The goal is to wax only in places that need it and leave other places alone. In addition, it’s a good method of filling in brows, using a guided outline to create shapes and products that complement skin to fill them in.
Eyebrow Waxing Alternatives
Eyebrow waxing may be the holy grail of eyebrow treatments, though it’s not the only method. For those with sensitive skin, waxing can be harsh, leaving behind raised bumps and redness due to irritation. Alternative eyebrow treatments include eyebrow threading, which provides a gentler alternative.
For eyebrow threading, artists will also consult with clients, considering their desired shape. Instead of wax, threading involves a piece of thread, which artists twist up with their fingers. Threading is super precise, allowing artists to pull multiple hairs at a time or just one single stubborn one. Like waxing, threading is over quickly and, in most cases, leaves skin less irritated than waxing.
Apart from eyebrow waxing and shaping, there are treatments out there that work to enhance the brows, most of which have wowed those who’ve dared to give them a try. Two note-worthy brow-perfecting treatments blowing up on social media are keratin eyebrow lamination and eyebrow tinting.
Eyebrow lamination leaves brows looking thicker and shapelier than ever – especially with The Brow Fixx’s solution infused with silk peptides and botanicals packed with omega 3’s and vitamin C. Using a Keratin brow lamination solution, brow hairs are coated and combed into shape before set in place for long-lasting results. Treatments can last up to 8 weeks, leaving clients with minimal work to do to wake up each day with jaw-dropping brows.
Eyebrow lamination is typically combined with eyebrow shaping and eyebrow waxing or eyebrow threading to clean up hairs and leave the brow snatched before the big reveal.
Tinting can be combined with lamination, adding more depth to the brows. Shades vary and artists make sure that tint doesn’t produce brows that are too red or too cool for the skin tone, creating more natural results. The process involves coating the brows with a tint that darkens brow hairs and makes them more prominent.
Eyebrow tinting is a great follow-up to eyebrow waxing or eyebrow threading and works wonders as an addition to eyebrow lamination. Brows will not only be tamer and lifted but have more dimension and depth with added color.
