The Time is Brow

Your brows open up your face, and when done right, give you the perfect look! Our Wax Specialists are here to help you find just the right volume, arch and shape.

A slight ouch

A little discomfort is completely normal during your first-ever eyebrow waxing, but guess what? It'll hurt less and less with each time visit.

Take a little off the top

Your eyebrow Wax Specialist might use small scissors to snip your longer hairs, so if you see a trimmer come out, that's why.

A tweeze here & there

After waxing, your eyebrow Wax Specialist may tweeze your brows to perfection by removing any pesky strays.

A smidgen of red

The skin around your brows may become red after eyebrow waxing, so if you're going to an event, schedule a wax three days before, just to be safe.

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 shaped eyebrows


Square faces have well-defined, sharp angles naturally, so a round or soft angled brow will create a balanced look.

round shaped eyebrows


With round faces, sharp angled brows with a high arch look best and help to create defined lines that flatter.

long or oval eyebrow waxing shape

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 eyebrows


Heart-shaped faces look best with a natural, soft-angled arch that draws just the right attention to the upper half of the face.

Eyebrow waxing vs. threading

Eyebrow threading uses a cotton thread to remove short rows of hair from your brow. 

Since threading removes each hair slowly and individually, it can be more painful and uncomfortable than waxing. Threading can also be difficult on sensitive skin, especially if you're an acne sufferer. 

Our trained Wax Specialists use our exclusive Comfort Wax®, which is gentle on even the most sensitive skin. And with waxing, you can achieve a sharper, cleaner brow shape that lasts longer and is less painful to achieve.

Eyebrow waxing vs. tweezing

Just as with threading, tweezing is a slower and sometimes more painful experience than waxing (ever miss the hair and pinch your skin instead?) Tweezing results don't last as long and there's more room for error, since it's easy to over-tweeze your brows which can cause permanent damage. 

However, tweezers are a great way to take care of any pesky, stray hairs that sprout up between waxes.

Eyebrow waxing vs. microblading

Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup application, not a hair removal technique. When microblading has been done, the remaining hair will still need to be groomed to keep brows looking perfect. 

Microblading is a painful, expensive procedure that can give a harsher appearance than traditional makeup and can lead to an unnatural looking, semi-permanent result.

Eyebrow waxing vs. DIY

We've all had one of those days: stuck at home, deciding to go it alone on your brows and before you know it, you've removed too much hair, over tweezed, and created an outdated or unnatural shape. 

So stick with the professionals! At EWC, we'll give you a thorough eyebrow waxing consultation to determine what shape is best for your face.

How long does eyebrow waxing last?

To keep your brows looking perfect, we recommend waxing every 2-3 weeks. If this interval is ideal for you, you'll find our Unlimited Wax Pass is a great value.
