View Full Version : Acceptable to tweeze during eyebrow wax?
06-08-12, 12:28 PM
I always have a few stray hairs left after waxing that i dare not try to wax as they're so close to the brow. But i always feel bad for tweezing, since they wanted a waxing treatment, not a tweezing, and obviously have their reasons. Is it normal to still have to tweeze a few though?

I think it should only be a few but to get the perfect line then yes tweeze those few strays out.

Like baggy bear i agree. Sometimes there may be tiny tiny dark dots which I have to get the tweezers out to get it. I had mine threaded the other day and they even tweezed a couple.
Absolutely!! When clients come in and pay for a brow treatment what they want is to leave with beautiful, perfect brows, and if that means using tweezers to perfect at the end of the treatment then do so!
If it isn't then I'm buggered! :)
The first wax on eyebrows I do on a new client is more tweezing than waxing... it gives me more flexibility until I know my client well enough and know the shape they are wanting me to go for. Once I have that established I gradually move closer to that shape with the wax in the following appointments :)
I think the important thing is the end result over the split of waxing/tweezing :)

I pretty much always tweeze to 'finish off' too, i dont think clients mind at all as long as they leave with lovely brows.
Also worth mentioning nearly all my clients have ended up at mine through poor work done elsewhere... poor in the sense that people do not communicate with them about what look they are looking for! So if you need to tweeze the whole brow I'd say do that rather than risk giving them a bad eyebrow job until you know them and know what they want :)

I often spend more time tweezing than waxing!! I feel I get a better shape etc! X

I know what you're saying - they're coming for a waxing appointment but the reason most people wax them (including me) is so that you can get all those little fine blonde hairs as well which you will be removing each time. The only reason why you pluck as well is to get the few that have maybe been too short and refine the shape
I tweeze at the end for those stubborn one's that you don't want to keep waxing over. I also think, as mentioned, it helps give a nice shape. And it feels like a whole 'service' then. It's nice for the client to think you're paying enough attention to make sure even that last little hair is out :wink2:

I think its fine to tweeze as part of an eyebrow wax. I totally get what you're saying about the client paying for a wax not a tweeze, but ultimately what they are paying for is perfect brows and you have to do what you have to do to achieve that. The majority of stray brows are gone with the wax, its just those few at the end to tidy up so I dont think its a problem.

It's very rare not to need to use tweezers after waxing for the final definition.
This is what will give you the precise detail you should be looking for.

i think that anybody who doesnt twease after waxing isnt giving a propper eyebrow shape
thoose few stray hairs can make or break they perfect shape
