Eyebrow waxing for men for Men's Fashion Week

From January 18 to 23, 2022, Paris hosts Men's Fashion Week. Yes, gentlemen, you too have the right to take care of yourself and be trendy! This involves clothing fashion, facial treatments and particularly eyebrow waxing which are, today, treatments frequently performed by men .

Plucking your eyebrows when you're a man?

For many people, hair removal in general, and especially eyebrow hair removal, only concerns women. And this was also the case for a very long time, hair being generally associated with virility . But today things are changing and more and more men are concerned about their appearance. A well-trimmed beard, clean hair and skin, neat hands and nails... Many details can give a neat appearance or, on the contrary, a little too neglected.

Plucking your eyebrows, when you're a man, is therefore nothing funny or unusual. Properly plucked eyebrows will not only show that you take care of yourself, but also highlight and intensify your look . Because yes, you should know, the unibrow has gone out of fashion for a long time!

In some cases, for men with a lot of hair or for teenagers who are self-conscious about eyebrows that are much more pronounced than most of their peers, hair removal can be the perfect solution. By removing the few unsightly hairs, we refine the eyebrow and hide this hair that has become annoying.

Eyebrow waxing for men: in a salon or at home?

The first waxing can generate some questions and concerns because no one wants messy, asymmetrical or over-plucked eyebrows !

Gentlemen, for successful men's eyebrow hair removal , you can obviously contact an institute. While some specialize in facial care for men , many beauty centers and salons are mixed and will also be able to take care of your eyebrows.

If you have very thick, bushy eyebrows and you really want to work on their shape in order to brighten your face and widen your eyes, then it is best to contact a professional. The latter will be able to define the eyebrow shape best suited to your face and, of course, achieve perfect hair removal without giving your eyebrows an overly feminine appearance.

On the other hand, if you just want to remove the few hairs between your two eyebrows, it's nothing complicated and you can totally do it yourself! However, be careful to remove only the excess hair (between the eyes and on the top of the eyelid), without touching your eyebrow line. Indeed, if you are not used to plucking your eyebrows yourself, you can quickly remove a few extra hairs and have asymmetrical eyebrows, or even over-plucked eyebrows.

You can also combine these two options by carrying out your first hair removal in an institute and then, once your eyebrows have been redesigned, carry out the maintenance yourself .

Eyebrow maintenance: when, how and how often?

Again, there are no rules. This varies from one man to another and will depend on your hair growth, but also on your tastes. If you simply want to avoid monobrows , a quick waxing of just a few minutes, a few times a year, will be more than sufficient.

On the other hand, if you really want to enhance your eyes and have a beautiful eyebrow shape , it is preferable to carry out waxing more regularly, once a month for example in order to eliminate excess hair and maintain your eyebrows.

How to pluck your eyebrows yourself?

First of all, let's remember that hair removal is done with tweezers , and especially not with a razor.

The lighted tweezers are perfect because they also illuminate the area, allowing you to easily see which hairs to grab.

To make hair removal easier, we advise you to do it after a shower , as the heat helps to dilate the pores of the skin. Then, for the most comfortable, you can first apply a little ice to the area to be waxed in order to lightly anesthetize the epidermis. Finally, we move on to hair removal, making sure to stretch the skin well to limit pain, and by removing hair in the direction of the hair.

To avoid over-plucking your eyebrows , we advise you to take the outer edge of your nose as a reference point. Place a brush or pen there and take it as a reference point at the brow bone. This is where your eyebrow should start. It should end at the same level as the corner of your lips. Obviously, the eyebrow must be thick at the base and then become thinner . For a natural effect, be sure to remove the hairs below the eyebrows and not above.

If in doubt, do not hesitate to go to an institute for men's eyebrow waxing carried out by a professional!
