Press play. The soundtrack to my creativity awaits.
After a routine eyebrow wax at the salon left my eyebrows looking like slashes.. imagine this "/" turned on its side.. I bought a wax kit and learned how to do them myself. -Nat's Confessions
I have been doing my own eyebrows for almost 10 years now. It's an equally simple and inexpensive process (cheaper than what you would typically pay for three months worth of waxes) to get started. And... the supplies last a really long time. My first pot of wax and warmer, the most expensive of the supplies, lasted me six years.
1. Supplies needed & the cost associated with each item:
2. I was walking around looking crazy just for you!
3. Wipe eyebrows with rubbing alcohol to remove oil from skin so that the wax can adhere better.
4. Apply a thin layer of wax to the area you would like to remove hair from in the direction of the growth of your hair.
5. It should look like this.
6. As you can see in the first image. The wax strips are cut into two larger pieces and four smaller pieces. Use one of the larger pieces and in the direction of the growth of your hair and press the strip down firmly.
7. Brace yourself! And pull the strip off quickly and in the opposite direction of the growth of your hair.
8. It should look like this.
9. I personally like to wax the top and side of my eyebrows once in awhile for a more defined look. You will want to use your smaller strips for this.
10. Apply the wax and pull the strip off quickly and in the opposite direction of the growth of your hair.
11. It should look like this.
12. Repeat steps 4-11 on your other eyebrow.
13. Apply wax remover to one of your cotton rounds and gently remove the remaining wax.
14. Use your tweezers to remove any hairs that the wax did not remove.
15. It should look like this.
16. And this!
