Getting your eyebrows waxed isn’t a scary experience. Each place doesn’t do things exactly the same. But we’ll walk you through the basics of what you should expect from your salon or spa visit and how to get your desired shape in place.
An upscale salon or spa will lead you into a private room onto a facial bed where you will lay down, and they will wrap hair in a towel or push it back with a head band.
Often a bright facial and magnifying light will be turned on to see the brows closely and be able to get every last hair. Some salons that mostly specialize in hair services, simply clip hair back and do the waxing right at the shampoo bowl.
Professional Eyebrow Waxing Consultation
At this time they should consult with you on how you want your eyebrows shaped. Do you like them full and defined, just cleaned up, or a high arch? (See eyebrow styles.)
Many techs, especially those that specialize in eyebrows will remove the sparse hair above the main shape of the brow. Some techs will ask if that’s all right and others will just wax without getting your approval. If you don’t want any hair removed above the brow, make sure to tell them.
The technician should never just start waxing at away at your brows without knowing what you want your brows to look like.
Before they touch your brows, you should give them the most information you can. Sometimes explaining it isn’t enough. If you have photos of brow shapes and thicknesses you like, bring them. This will give them a good visual.
