Hi Geeks. Can anyone personally recommend a really good brand of tweezers? I've bought all of the Tweezermans, and other so called good makes, but I can't find a brand to settle on. These are to use when I shape brows and I don't care how dear or how cheap they are..........they just need to be consistently good. Thanks. x

I second Chantell's recommendation for Batten Edwards - I've got a pair of their 9cm "OC" tweezers for brow shaping. I prefer a point rather than slanted tweezers for brows, and these babies have got the sharpest point I've come across for really precise tweezing. They've lasted me about 6 months without any degradation to the edge. Cost about £10.

(and I've no idea what the "OC" stands for, lol :D)

i had a brilliant pair of tweezers since college like 5 years ago, pointed electrolosis ones, they were like an extention of my hand. But then one day, they miraculously went missing.

Ive never found any as good since. :(

will have to give those ones a try!

whre did u get them from andy?

I just looked on the BE website, was gonna cost £17! If i can get them for less then bonus!

Kate, I got mine from the Salons Direct site that Dee mentioned - just checked and they are just under £10 + VAT. Sound very similar to the ones you describe! :)

Oooo, I have the black slanted ones from Boots at home! You're right Amb, they are good! :D I can't use slanted ones on other people, though, don't know why - I get all fingers and thumbs! I find the pointy ones do a really good job of isolating individual hairs when shaping brows on clients.

I prefer to use automatic tweezers, they are practically painfree for clients. Ideal for removing bulk hairs quickly.

tweezerman do some they have like a plastic handle on them, and u kinda squeeze the handles and it grabs and pulls the hair.

Professional tweezers: Buy Professional tweezers online from Salonlines.co.uk, PFB Automatic Professional

although i wouldnt have thought tweezing hairs in bulk was the best idea? :0/
I wax the bulk and tweeze the little ones to perfect!!

I like pointed tweezers because you can see what your doing with them better cuz they are less bullky and like andy says you can isolate hairs better and get the really pesky tiny ones!! also good for 'flicking' ingrown hair out quickly and painlessly!

im a devil for getting every last hair!!

You know - all this time I have been waxing and removing hair I have never tried with the pointy tweezers! :eek: I must give them a try - my clients say they know when I get a pair of tweezers in my hands that I wont stop until I have all the pesky buggers out that we dont want! :lol:

Thougth I had better add that I have always used the slanted tweezers as I havent ever got on with the straight ones.

Oh yeah..........I've had the automatic tweezers. I prefer a slanted tweezer with a good grip but are not too thin at the ends as they tend to break/cut the hairs. Think I'll invent my own. xxx

yeah they act like blades dont they!! snip snip!! with pointy tweezers they will only break / cut the hairs if they are super sharp and / or u grip the hair too tight!

In desperation ive actually plucked my own hairs out with a pair of cuticle nippers before lol. dont ask!

I like the ones that are pointed, but have two flat edges that touch together at the point? make sense?! cuz u have the accuracy and a good grip without having to squeeze too hard and snapping the hair! ive seen some that are total needle point! i couldnt work with those!
