Eyebrow Help

How can you make your eyebrows thin? I tried waxing, threading, but none of them worked...is there anyone who can help? And of corse no beauty salon suggestions!

Go to your local nail salon and ask them to wax them. Specify what you want, and they'll do it. Ten bucks. It's almost impossible to do it yourself without screwing it up, and they go to school just to learn how to do it.

Also, after you've gotten them waxed, remember to pluck stray hairs every morning after you shower, so that you don't have to go to a salon every two weeks or something. (Plucking's really easy if you have a decent pair of tweezers. If it hurts at first, keep an ice cube on hand.)

will it hurt if you put an ice cube on it? when I tried threading, it didn't work. All it did was make my forehead look like a strawberry! I am cosplaying sakura shippuden and I can't stand having these eyebrows!

if you really cant get the right results on your own either with tweezing or home waxing kits, you might just have to go to a salon and get them shaped.

Yay! Good for you! Just make sure you apply some maintenance every now and then when you think it's time for a good trimming! A good pair of tweezers (I recommend Revlon) will definitely help out with that.

If they happen to get out of shape again (if ever..), then you can go to a general store or maybe even a pharmacy and pick up some eyebrow shapers--they definitely help!

I'm currently regrowing my eyebrows out atm so I can go get them reshaped at the salon. Although I'm really happy with the current shape I have mine at right now... it doesn't work with my face. T_T There are funny shadows from where the brows SHOULD be.. so yeah. Lol

Look up a lot of eyebrow tutorials online, they have a lot of good tips on fixing your eyebrows.

If you don't trust yourself, just pay a stylist to do it for you.
But make sure to explain VERY CLEARLY on what you want or they may just clean them.
