Brow Tweezing 101

Emily Brows

Naturally shaped brows

At Gia Marina, we shape your brows by tweezing. This allows us to be more specific about which brow hairs are removed and which should be kept. Most of our first time clients come to us because they want to grow and reshape their damages brows.  We will educate you and help you get back your brows so that they are more suited for your face shape. If your brows certainly are not growing anymore due to over waxing and tweezing…don’t give up. Our Aestheticians are trained makeup artists who can teach you several brow makeup tips to fill them in while keeping them looking natural.

Q & A

Why is tweezing brows better than waxing?

  1. You not only take off the hair when waxing, you also take off skin. This can cause irritation, long periods of redness,hyper-pigmentation, and breakouts. Waxing while using glycolics, retinols, or recieving chemical peels can cause severe irritation.  When tweezing you are only removing the hair.
  2. Waxing can take off way too much hair affecting the shape of your brows. Tweezing brows,  by Gia Marina Aestheticians, is much more detailed and intricate. We tweeze one hair at a time so there is no room for error.

Why should I not tweeze daily?
To keep your brows clean and well-shaped, you must refrain from tweezing them daily. It is important for each of your brow hairs to be on the same growth pattern. If all the brow hairs are tweezed on the same day, then they are more likely to grow back around the same time.  This will leave your brows looking cleaner longer.  When you tweeze everyday you tend to over-tweeze and take to many hairs, causing you to lose the natural shape and leaving them thin and/or crooked.  Just a little FYI…Throw away your magnifying mirror.

What about my grey or white brows?
If you have grey or white brows, then please make sure that you are very careful not to pull those hairs out if they are located inside your brow shape. If those hairs are long and wiry then just know that we can trim them and tint them back to your original color. Those pulled hairs can eventually quit growing and leave your brows sparse and thin.
