If you have flashbacks to your high school tadpole eyebrows, fear not! Shaping your eyebrows has evolved beyond the excessive hair removal of the early days. The once spooky DIY beauty project is easier than you might think. We’ve ditched thin, angular brows for bolder, freer, fuller brows.
As someone who never really touched their eyebrows as a teenager (thanks to my mom for forbidding me!), I thought mine were in pretty good shape, until I visited the Sania’s Brow Bar in New York to see expert Sania Vucetaj. Vucetaj, who has groomed the iconic eyebrows of celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker and Rihanna, immediately noticed that my brows were not living up to their fluffiest potential. The guilty? My skin care routine.
“Don’t buy creams, lotions, moisturizers, foundation, sunscreen, serums, oils, anything on the eyebrows,” she warns. “It suffocates the follicle. That’s why you lose, and they fall. They become more and more clear. If your eyebrows are recovering from excessive lightening or waxing, Vucetaj advises you the same. “You have to go around her eyebrows [with the product]. It takes six months to a year to grow them back. “
Coming up, Vucetaj explains how to get the eyebrows of your dreams at home.

Step 1: Evaluate Your Fitness
Respect the natural shape of your eyebrows. Using your tweezers as a guide, hold it up to your eyebrows to measure where to start. “The top ridge of your nose, you line it up with your tweezers,” Vucetaj says. “It’s not [at the widest part of your nose]. A lot of people think it’s there, but it’s the upper deck. For the top of your eyebrows, Vucetag recommends holding the tweezers and tilting it in the same direction all the way to the top.
The easiest way to find your bow? Take one finger and pull up slightly. “With arches, you just need to lift the arch slightly,” says Vucetaj. “It can help you determine how much or how little arc you want. If you want higher, you know how to do it.
To remove stray hairs, tweezers are the way to go. “The beauty of the tweezers is that you pull by the root and the hairs grow back later over time,” Vuetaj explains. “A razor is just an easy day fix. Waxing stretches your skin. The thread breaks the hairs, so you get broken and ingrown hairs. So there are reasons why I stick with it. to the tweezers technique. Precision is essential. Hair makes a statement right through to the end. “

Step 2: Align and Pinch
Shaping comes down to a few simple rules: shape your brows naturally, highlight what you already have, and never overdo it. “The rule of thumb is to epilate every four to six weeks. No more than that, ”explains Vucetaj. “People try too hard to figure out the shapes, and the best is to stay close to what you have. Just a cleaner, tidier version of it. Make sure you like the shape, then just pinch a few pests on the outside of the shape. Less is more. “
The most important : move away of the magnifying mirror! “Get rid of all magnifying mirrors, the worst thing ever,” she adds. “You see too much. It’s playing with you. You sacrifice shape for some hair that people wouldn’t normally see.
Only cut if you need to! Vucetaj barely used his scissors on my eyebrows. “The cup is the last,” she said. “You have to be careful to have the right scissors. It is important that the blade is long, because if they are too short, you have to keep stopping and cutting, and that’s how you make them. uneven. We brush them very lightly and only cut where necessary. You don’t cut the arch at all. “

Step 3: Fill in your eyebrows
And finally, it’s time to refuel! To keep the natural look, avoid a heavy hand when filling in the center of your eyebrows. “Wherever it’s more sparse, you just add a little more pressure,” Vuectaj explains. “Trace the top of the eyebrow and trace the bottom. If you want a bit more prominent arch, just add a bit more color and brush it out. Lightly fill in the middle. This is how you keep it from looking like a tattoo. “
Vucetaj always recommends using an eyebrow pencil or powder to fill in your eyebrows. “Once you’ve found the color you like, fill in your eyebrows where you think they look good. Take a step back. Maybe take a photo, make sure they’re even, then you can proceed. waxing a few hairs and filling in with the pencil, that’s what I always tell my clients.
