Did you know that 25% of American women use eyebrow pencils? If you are one of these women that cares about how her eyebrows look but are wondering what options you have when it comes to brow sculpting, you are in the right place. We have put together this short guide to share a few different types of eyebrow services.
Read on to learn about some common professional brow services.
Trimming and Tweezing
This is the most common professional eyebrow service, where brow hairs are taken out with tweezers to form the wanted shape. Then the brows are brushed and trimmed a little. Many people do not trust themselves with tweezers and scissors, so they go shape their eyebrows every four to six weeks and have a pro do the trimming and tweezing for them.
In recent times, microblading has become extremely popular with the public and celebrities alike. This eyebrow service is a semi-permanent solution where the technician uses a tiny needle to create hair-like strokes of pigment to fill in the brow. The dye that is used to fill the eyebrows is manually inserted in the top layers of the skin.
You can expect to be at your appointment between 2-3 hours, and sometimes you will need a touch up about 4 weeks later in case any parts did not take the dye well. This procedure will last anywhere from 12 to 18 months, but if you want to keep the color fresh, you can get a touch up every 6 to 12 months.

When you find someone that can thread, you will be amazed at how quickly they use the string to shape your eyebrows. It is similar to waxing and tweezing, but it is gentler on the skin. Unlike waxing, you usually do not have any skin accidentally removed.
If you have waxed in the past and have dealt with an ingrown or struggled with a breakout after waxing, then threading might be a better option for you.
This service is for those that have light eyebrows or want to cover up gray hairs on the brows. Tinting will create a fuller looking brow when you do it over the entire brow. The esthetician can either tint the whole brow, or they can add more color in only the areas where you require more color or want more thickness.
Keep in mind that the tint will last between 4-6 weeks, depending on how oily your skin is and how often you wash your face.
