6 Things You Must Do Before Your Eyebrow Waxing Appointment

Professionally waxed eyebrows will help you achieve a more aesthetically pleasing appearance, accentuate your eyes, and create a more polished look. However, to get the best results, here are some tips you must follow before your eyebrow waxing appointment.

Eyebrow waxing is a widely used method of removing unwanted eyebrow hairs and during this appointment, hot wax will be applied to the skin and then pulled off, along with the trapped hair at the root. As all of the hair will be removed, your skin will be left feeling smoother and cleaner. 

Some of the great benefits of opting for eyebrow waxing include: 

  • Quick treatment times (typically less than 15 minutes) 
  • Hair grows back thinner, softer, and sparser 
  • You’ll achieve a polished and desirable eyebrow shape 
  • Minimal and temporary side effects 
  • The treatment is virtually painless 

Why You Should Get Your Eyebrows Professionally Waxed 

Poorly shaped eyebrows can negatively impact your overall look. That’s why it’s always a good idea to have them waxed by a professional who can shape them while keeping in mind the unique shape of your eyes and overall features. They’ll also ensure that your eyebrow hair has the right length, width, and most importantly, the right arch.

6 Things to Do Before Your Eyebrow Appointment 

Getting your eyebrows professionally waxed is a great step towards achieving a more desirable eyebrow shape and improving your aesthetic appearance. However, in order to get the best results from your waxing appointment, there are several things you need to do to prepare for the session. 

This includes: 

1. Have an idea of what shape you want.
There are various eyebrow shapes you can select from and deciding which one you want and what works for you can help ensure that you get the best outcome from your eyebrow waxing appointment. Not sure which shape works best for you? Your wax esthetician can help steer you in the right direction.

2. Make sure your eyebrow hair has grown out.
Just like with other types of waxing, your hair length matters with a brow wax. Attempt to grow out your brow hair to ⅛ to ¼ of an inch to allow the wax to hold your hair properly.

3. Discuss any skin products you are using with your esthetician.
Inform your esthetician if you are taking any topical facial medications such as Retin-A or Accutane or if you have any skin conditions such as acne or rosacea. Some skin care products can make your skin overly sensitive or cause it to peel. You also don’t want waxing to exacerbate any skin conditions you might have.

4. Discuss any previous cosmetic treatments you’ve had.
If you have recently had any cosmetic treatments such as Botox, microdermabrasion, or any other injectables performed around the unwanted hair area, discuss this with your waxing professional. They can advise on how long you must wait to have your eyebrows waxed following any of these procedures.

5. Avoid tweezing your hair between waxing appointments.
As tempting as it may be, you must avoid plucking those stray hairs between appointments. By plucking, you’ll disturb the hair cycle and prolong the hair growth time. It’s also very easy to become overzealous with the tweezers and overpluck. It’s always best to let your eyebrows grow out naturally and let your waxing expert shape them for you.

6. Don’t wear makeup to your appointment.
It’s best to arrive at your appointment makeup-free so avoid wearing eyeshadow, brow filler, or brow powder. This will ensure that your waxing professional will be able to see what hair you have and what needs to be removed. Even if they do clean your brows before waxing, any makeup residue could still clog freshly opened pores.

Q: How long should I wait in between eyebrow waxing appointments?
It is recommended that you wait 4-6 weeks between your brow appointments. Giving your eyebrow hairs enough time to grow to a sufficient length will ensure there is more leeway when shaping and styling your brows. 

Q: Is eyebrow waxing painful?
Most people report having a little pain during the first appointment but as the sessions go on and your hair becomes finer, the discomfort will lessen. In the hands of a skilled esthetician, this is a relatively comfortable treatment. They may even apply a cooling antiseptic cream on the areas to help minimize any post-procedure discomfort.
