21 Sep Eyebrow Shaping is an Art
Eyebrow threading at the Brow Boutique is more than just removing hairs…it’s an art. Eyebrow shaping with balance in mind is what we aim for on a face. Symmetry created by the facial bone structure is carefully examined, nose width, distance between the eyes, proportion, and arch. All of this happens on a canvas that isn’t flat. Length, width, contour, shadows, gradient, and color, all plays a role in the perfect brow. Put down those tweezers, and let the experts analyze what brow shape works best for you.
Timing is also a key element when trying to grow out your brows. Letting brows grow out for more than 6 months and waiting that long before getting threaded, isn’t really necessary due to the natural cycle of hair growth. Hair follicles have 3 phases in which they go through. The first growth cycle is called ‘anagen’, the second for regression is called ‘catagen’, and the last phase of rest is called the ‘telogen’. About 90% of your hair follicles are typically in the growth phase at any given time. It takes about 4 months for an eyebrow to complete a cycle. Because of this short growth cycle, eyebrow maintenance with your specialist should be between 4 – 6 weeks in between.
Color adds definition to your brows, and really outlines the entire face. The sun often times fades or bleaches your brows. After getting 3 solid months of summer sun, now is a good time to tint your lash and your brows adding depth and dimension to your face.
