Tweezing has always been an effective method of hair removal. Tweezing is precise, removes the hairs from the root, and is gentle on the skin because it does not exfoliate the skin. Whether you have big bold brows or small sleek brows – tweezing is a simple, quick and affordable option. Read below to learn how to easily tweeze at home with salon-like results.
Choosing Your ArteStile Eyebrow Tool
If your hairs are sliding out of your tweezers, it is likely you are going to end up with breakage while taking a long time to get the job done. When hairs break instead of being removed from the follicle, the regrowth is going to appear almost instantly. Blunt brow tools can also lead to ingrown hairs and irritation from constantly poking at the skin instead of having a clean pluck!
ArteStile Precision Point Tip Tweezers
ArteStile precision point tip tweezers help you get closer to the skin than ever before. They are best for eyebrow detailing, getting up close to your shape, removing broken brow hairs, and even the best tweezers for ingrown hairs! It is best to focus on one hair at a time when using Point tip tweezers, and approach the hair on an angle with your pointed tweezer.
ArteStile Slant Tip Tweezers
ArteStile Slant Tip Tweezers are the best tweezers for eyebrow and facial hair and generally the most commonly used tweezer. You would be able to tweeze faster than the point tip tweezers because you could remove more than 1 hair at a time. Slant tip tweezers are best for removing larger areas of hair and the hair can be approached straight on because the slanted tips allow for a good visual angle. Many brow artists use a slant tip tweezer for the bulk of hair removal and will finish up with point tip tweezers for the cleanest and detailed brow shaping.
Prepare The Skin
You need a clean surface before any hair removal. Wash your face before tweezing your brows (or any other hair on the face). Exfoliating might also be beneficial to help remove build up and allow for easier hair removal. Softening of the skin with warm water should help to relax the skin and prepare the hair follicles to make it easier to pluck. Don’t forget to pat the skin dry before tweezing because wet hairs will be difficult to grip onto. Proper preparation of the skin can help to avoid waxing irritation and ingrown hairs.
Good Lighting For Tweezing
Always use good lighting when tweezing so you can see what you’re doing. Natural daylight is best if that is available for you, or make sure you have a well lit space inside without any shadows.
How To Tweeze
Use your tweezers with one hand, and use the other hand to hold the skin taught and firmly without altering the shape of your brows. Approach horizontally, as if you were going to scoop it into the tweezer and grip the hair with your Point Tip Tweezers. As mentioned above, these tweezers are amazing for fine detailing, when you only need to remove one hair at a time, or very fine thin hairs. Make sure to pull in the direction of hair growth, and start with hairs farther away from your natural brows, slowly working your way into shape, switching back and forth between the brows to be mindful of symmetry.
Using sharp and expertly aligned tweezers can make all the difference in your grooming routine. I’ve always been able to depend on my tweezers for at home maintenance and clean balanced brows.
Finish With Skincare
When you're finished, clean with water or apply your facial toner or some alcohol-free witch hazel. You can also follow up with aloe, shea butter or your favorite moisturizer with clean hands or a cotton pad to soothe and hydrate the skin after tweezing with your ArteStile tweezers.
