How To Wax Eyebrows
If you're considering that you would like to become more handy when it comes to your own beauty care, then here's an answer offered by the London Beauty Institute - a very detailed and well-explained video about how to have good looking eyebrows. Waxing is not a secret anymore!
Hello. Today, I am going to show how to wax eyebrows. First and foremost, you're going to have to measure the eyebrows, just to check if areas need to be filled up and which areas you should wax to an arch and where the eyebrow should actually end.
You use a small spatula like so or like a coffee stirrer. Place the spatula by the side of the client's nose, just alongside the bridge towards the inner quarters of the eye at an angle, not straight up but just at an angle. And this is where the eyebrows should start.
The arch should be - the client looks straight ahead - anywhere between the outside of the cornea which is the color bit of the eye and to the outside corner of the eye. Where the brow should end should be by the edge of the nose, corner of the eye, place the spatula just along there and that's where the eyebrow should end. Eyebrows can be longer, that's fine because most people do desire a longer eyebrow; but if shorter, that's not a problem because sometimes, eyebrows actually don't grow right down.
Once you've done that, explain to the client if they need to grow any areas, give it a bit of a brush and before you start waxing, just take a cotton pad, place them pre-wax lotion, cleanse the area, make sure that you actually dry off or else the wax won't adhere properly to the skin. Brush through again and then you can actually start your waxing procedure. Make sure that you cut your strips into small pieces like so which you can use for lip wax and also just small areas of the face.
Once you know the temperature of the wax is adequate and it's warm enough, not too hot, you can actually do that by just testing a little bit of wax at the back of your hand, back of your wrist, and then you could just wax that off. Dip the spatula into the wax, wipe away one side, because then the wax doesn't actually drip, spin the spatula so you could leave the wax on and it won't drip. Place the first bit in the middle of the client's, just between the eyebrows, just in the middle part.
Take a strip, place it in the area, make sure that you stretch the skin, maybe using your thumb, smooth over the strip, stretch the skin, inflate the area where you are just about to wax and then remove the strip against the direction. The next section is just underneath the eyebrows. So, again, take little bit more wax, hold the eyebrow up slightly, not too much.
To actually distort the shape, place a little bit of wax underneath, take a fresh strip, place it underneath, smooth over, again stretch the skin - just in front of the flat where you are about to pull the strip and then pull off. Any little residue, just smooth over and then just pull off, otherwise you can tear the skin and this area is a very, very delicate area. Little bit more wax on the spatula but it shouldn't be too much - this is how much wax maybe you should actually pick up.
Place it in the outer corners where the brow bone is. Again, place the strip, pull and then remove the strip. You need to remove the strip parallel to the skin; otherwise, you can actually bruise the skin and also tear the skin.
Then, we're going to do the upper section, again, just the front section there, place it neatly on the top. Make sure that the edge of the strip is actually alongside the brow, otherwise the top of the brow line. Otherwise, if you actually place it in the middle, you can actually squish and squash the wax onto the eyebrows and you can remove more hairs than you desire to remove.
Smooth across, stretch and then remove. Again, any residues, just smooth and remove. Brush.
Again, place, remove. Place, remove. Brush over the eyebrows just to smooth it and just take a pair of tweezers and just remove any fixed hairs in the direction of the actual hair growth to prevent ingrown hairs.
So, normally, you would use the wax to remove the bulk of the hairs and sometimes, just to create a bit more of a higher arch, if you wanted to be a little bit more de
