Why get eyebrow shaping?
Eyebrow shaping is something that is often seen as being done by women, however men can also benefit from this treatment. A professional eyebrow shaping session can completely restructure the face and enhance the eyes and other features, particularly for those who may have uncontrolled or excessive growth, or a lack of spacing between the individual eyebrows.
We would always recommend visiting a professional to have your eyebrows shaped, as removing too many hairs, or the incorrect hairs, can result in gaps or uneven eyebrows. Attempting to correct the problem can potentially make things even worse. Remember, though you can remove eyebrows, you can't put them back in, and a mistake can take weeks to grow back out. This is particularly true for those who have no experience of shaping their own eyebrows.
Before your treatment
To achieve the best results and ensure that your therapist has the most to work with, we recommend not plucking any of your own eyebrows prior to the appointment, for at least 2 to 4 weeks. This will ensure a good growth, which makes it easier to style and shape the brows.
It is also a good idea to ensure that if you have long hair, the fringe is trimmed or tied back, to prevent your hair from getting in the way during the treatment.
What does eyebrow shaping involve?
Our therapist will work with you to understand what your desired outcome is, and will recommend the best course of action to achieve those results. They will then shape your eyebrows by removing individual hairs gradually, until the shape is achieved.
You typically shouldn't expect any pain. The first 1 or 2 eyebrows can be uncomfortable, however the brow area soon becomes desensitised to the sensation and you should barely notice additional hairs being removed.
After your treatment
You're perfectly able to maintain your own eyebrows moving forward, but we would suggest that you book follow-up sessions in the future, if you want to maintain your eyebrow shape and style and are pleased with the results. After around a month, you can expect to see the hair growing to a point where it would benefit from another shaping session.
Oasis Beauty Salon has to be one of the best beauty salon in the north west by far because I always get a fantastic service for really good prices.
The facials and pedicures are done to perfection and I love the hot stone massage which is a real treat.
