Threading, Waxing or Plucking: What’s The Best Way to Shape Eyebrows?
You don’t need to turn to pricey eye creams and surgery to make your eyes pop—getting your eyebrows shaped by professionals will do that in no time!
The shape of your eyebrows frames your face so they can make a dramatic impact on your appearance. In the 90s, eyebrows were incredibly thin but today, the thicker they are, the better!
Just like fashion, eyebrow trends come and go. You may not always be able to keep up with them but if you follow the contours of your face and shape them accordingly, you’ll look great.
You can shape your eyebrows by threading, waxing or plucking.
Let’s look at each of these options in detail.
Threading Your Eyebrows
Threading is an age-old hair removing technique that began in Persia. It involves the removal of eyebrow hair and fine hair on the face by twisting a thread around them and pulling them from the root.
The idea of wrapping a thread around your hair to pull it off the follicles may sound painful, but threading is the best method of shaping eyebrows—especially for those with sensitive skin.
It doesn’t stretch or pull the skin and it doesn’t peel off the upper layer of the skin, making it perfect for those who’re using topical/oral thinning products like Retin-A. Threading is also a better choice for people with maturing skin.
Threading allows you to pull the finest and shortest of hairs so you can maintain your eyebrows more often. You don’t have to wait for your hairs to grow to ¼th of an inch like you would have to with waxing.
If you do learn how to thread your face, you should leave your eyebrows to the professionals. Shaping your eyebrows requires a little more technique than just removing hairs from your face.

Waxing your eyebrows is just like waxing any other part of your body. A thin layer of either hot or cold wax will be spread on the unwanted hairs. Once the wax sets, it will be pulled off quickly.
Waxing is best for people who have a natural shape to their eyebrows. It can be used to give you more defined arches and edges. In the US, it happens to be the most popular method of shaping eyebrows.
Since waxing involves tugging of the skin, people using retinoids should avoid it; waxing can be harsh on sensitive and thin skin.
Plucking is a convenient way to do eyebrows because it can be done at home. It removes hair from the root. It’s not the most effective way to shape eyebrows but it’s a quick and simple way to remove any strays.
Get yourself a good pair of tweezers and start plucking any unsightly strays that are making your brows look messy.
