Thin Eyebrows? Tips Before You Book

If you have thin eyebrows, here are Elke’s tips on what you need to consider before booking an eyebrow appointment.

Have a thin eyebrow from threading?

Don’t worry. I’ve been able to reshape and get even the thinnest eyebrows back on track. And there’s no need to go around for months with half done eyebrows waiting for them to grow in before you can get them looking perfect again. The key is to get the line of the eyebrow back on track which gives you a starting point as to where to grow in. Once you have that line, you can then keep an eye on them and keep those hairs growing in where you need them. A thick brow is not needed for me to create the line of the brow. Once that is put in, you can maintain and get your brows thicker while maintaining on your own. 

Tweeze or Wax?

The Model Brow® Service offers a precise eyebrow shaping every time with either wax or tweezing. Your choice. But in fact, 98% of my clients actually prefer and request tweezing. Why? Because I can tweeze only the stray hairs that are needed and keep a lot of what’s growing in for you to keep.

In Between Appointments

It’s always easier grow in brows, by keeping them neat looking. Why? Because if you wait for months for them to grow in, you’re usually left with just messy looking brows, and the inclination of going at them with a pair of tweezers when you can’t stand them anymore. Hence, messing them up again. Key is to grow them 1/2 rows at a time, both above and below the brows. Everything else? If it’s not needed, clean it up.  You’ll be left with a neater looking brow, that’s easier to maintain and will grow in quicker. But let a pro do the first initial clean up first. It’ll easier to maintain them as they grow in.

To tweeze or not to tweeze?

I get asked a lot, how do you know when to tweeze a hair or not? Let your gut be your guide. If you’re about to pull a hair, but you’re not sure? You’re probably right. Don’t. If you know for certain you can pull a hair and you’ll be fine, your gut will tell you it’s ok.  Still now sure? Pull down the hair with the tip of the tweezer, but don’t pull. Take a look and see what it would look like if you pull. Any holes behind it? Don’t. If it looks ok, you’re probably ok to go ahead and pull.

Here are some things to consider before booking an eyebrow appointment.

To tweeze or wax?

That depends on the type of hair you have for your brows. Thicker, coarser hair responds best to waxing because you are more likely to get the root, therefore slowing down hair growth. Though thicker hair will almost always grow back (sorry!), you’ll get results that lst longer with waxing.

Thinner, lighter hair likes tweezing because you can keep most of it’s shape without worrying about hairs not growing back. If you have thin hairs, be very careful with waxing along the eyebrow line. These hairs probably won’t grow back, since thin hair if finer and weaker, hairs usually don’t grow back. Ask any blonde that’s gotten her light blonde hairs waxed. And if it’s a bad wax job? You’ll be stuck with an eyebrow shape that may not grow back at all.

Always request that stray hairs between the brows and way below the brow to be waxed, while the hairs along the brow line are tweezed. That way you can play and change the shape when you want with eyebrow hairs that will grow back.

Some things to consider before booking an eyebrow appointment.

1. Don’t feel you need to grow in your eyebrows for 2-3 months before you come in like *most places tell you. Growth for that length of time usually ends up with overgrown eyebrows in places you really don’t need anyway. 2-3 weeks is usually enough for me to reshape or fix a brow. If you’re looking to to grow thin eyebrows thicker, then give it a month.

But note it can take months for some eyebrows to completely grow in. Why? Because you’re waiting for hairs to grow in a precise location which can take some time. But that doesn’t mean that your eyebrows should look unruly in the meantime.

Trick: Grow your eyebrows in a row at a time rather than all at once. This may take longer but it will leave you with nicer looking brows that are shaped as you’re growing them in. * Most places tell you to wait that long so that way the before/after transformation is so great, you’ll be a client for life. Or so they hope. But really, do you want to walk around with unkept eyebrows for that long? Why when you can start creating your perfect shape within weeks?
