Resurrecting Your Eyebrows…

kristie

Full, well-shaped brows can make such a difference when it comes to looking healthy, natural and youthful. Conversely, over-plucking or getting a bad wax can leave you with scrawny brows that bring out fine lines and dark circles. We sat down with brow guru Kristie Streicher, of Striiike in LA, on what to do when you’ve over-plucked, or have lost track of your ideal arch or shape.

What’s the ideal brow shape? Is it different for different people? How can we achieve it?

The Feathered Brow technique I created looks great on every face. It is simply your own natural eyebrow shape with just a few carefully selected hairs removed. Women can achieve this look at home by first letting their eyebrows grow out for 3-4 months in order to see their natural shape and arch. Then only tweeze the few hairs it takes to open up the outer arch of the brow.

Any advice on creating the arch? How how far out should we pluck?

The biggest mistake women make is not finding their own natural arch. If you try to arch your eyebrows too high above the bone, it will look unnatural. You should tweeze little or no hair from the ends of the brows, and you always want to make sure the brows are trailing off in an upward and outward direction, and never downward.

To find your natural arch: Draw an invisible line from the corner of the nose straight up towards the forehead. This is where the eyebrows should start. The arch should fall just outside the pupil if you’re holding the pencil at a diagonal from the outer corner of the nostril. The eyebrow should extend and then end in a straight line from outer nostril to the end of the eye.

What should you do if you’ve over-plucked?

Most people over-tweeze or are just tweezing too often. More than anything, people want thicker brows, but they are under the impression that they cannot grow them. Pulling out a few hairs everyday can profoundly affect how the rest of the brow grows. I have developed what I call Brow Rehab. Clients surrender their brows to my management to allow them to grow out.

The first 2-3 months of putting the tweezers down are the hardest, but by then brows become trained and the growth cycle synchronized. And any hair removal occurs all at once, rather than every few days or weeks. Your brows become only as high maintenance as you train them to be.
