Here are the expert brow tips that she wants us to know:
What You Need to Do:
Stay with your routines for hair and self care! Not only will it help everything feel a little more “normal,” (whatever that means now), it will force you to maintain the health of your brows. When you wake up, brush your brows with a spoolie to help feel groomed – maybe even put in a little brow gel to hold some style throughout your day. You can continue tweezing the hairs that annoy you in between your brows and using a conditioning product in the evenings to keep the hair soft.
What You Can Do:
If you’re looking at this time as an opportunity to “glow up” (in between zoom meetings, of course), it’s the perfect chance to use a lash or brow serum! So many of us have thinning / sparse brows that could benefit from some time away from the salon to focus on regrowth and the health of the brows in general. I always recommend LiBrow ($90 for 3 month supply) to my clients – it works amazing and really nourishes the follicle so the brow doesn’t just appear thicker – it also looks healthier in general.
Side note: SO many clients come in with the totally wrong brow shape for their face – by taking the time to put down their tweezers and put on a growth serum, you are giving us a chance to reassess the shape and find the perfect style for you!
What You Definitely Shouldn’t Do:
No matter how desperate you get, PLEASE leave the shaping to the pros! We all know how easy it is to get carried away while plucking, and next thing you know your right brow is something straight out of the early 2000s. Tweezing the strays away is fine, just practice self control – your brow artist will appreciate it… I promise it is easier for us to reshape your overgrown brow than to try and even out an overly shaped situation!
