Brow Shapes & Techniques
Not sure about what shape brow best suits your face? That's where our experts come in!
Your individual face will determine which brow shape our Wax Specialist will recommend, and they'll work with you to make sure you love the end result.
Below are some guidelines based on common face shapes.
Square faces have well-defined, sharp angles naturally, so a round or soft angled brow will create a balanced look.
With round faces, sharp-angled brows with a high arch look best and help to create defined lines that flatter.
Long or Oval
Long or oval faces benefit from having soft arches or a flat brow; having an arch that's too high can elongate the face
Heart-shaped faces look best with a natural, soft-angled arch that draws just the right attention to the upper half of the face.

How do you prepare for eyebrow waxing?
1. The best way to prepare for your eyebrow waxing reservation is to ensure your hair has grown out ⅛ to ¼ of an inch, so the wax can adhere to the hair properly. Avoid tweezing in between reservations to make sure your eyebrows are long enough.
2. If possible, it’s ideal to arrive makeup-free, specifically avoiding brow filler or powder and eyeshadow. A fresh face will ensure your Wax Specialist can easily assess your shape and remove any unruly hairs.
3. Avoid facial cosmetic treatments before your reservation. This includes any cosmetic injectables or facial treatments like microdermabrasion.
4. Be sure to inform your Wax Specialist if you’re currently using any topical medications on your face. Several skincare medications and ingredients like Retin-A, or glycolic acid, can make your skin extra sensitive, and waxing the area can irritate the skin.
Avoid tanning in the sun and spray tanning before your eyebrow wax. Tanning in the sun makes skin overly sensitive, especially if you’re sunburned, and waxing immediately after a spray tan will remove your tan along with those pesky hairs!
