How do you maintain yours? Plucked, threaded, waxed or do you keep it au natural? Why?

I get mine's threaded fairly routinely but take a break if I see my brows thinning out...which happens because I don't really have very thick eyebrows to begin with...it's the random unrulies that are annoying.

I wax, I might try threading again. The first time it killed. Mine are also thin, so I get them done maybe 2-3 times a year.

Unless you have really bushy owl brows or a uni-brows I don't know why you bother but it's not really my area, one of those things I'd rather leave to you women lol.

Well groomed eye brows really make you look better and more polished. They help to frame your face.


I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.

I get mine waxed once or twice a year, and maintain with plucking the rest of the time.

I pluck. I don't trust anybody with my brows.

It is a gamble letting someone else do them. You don't want to end up looking like Joan Crawford.

I pluck (but try not to over-pluck!) the thick areas, and use a pencil that matches my hair to lightly fill in thin areas. When they look the way I want them to look, I brush a coat of *clear* mascara through them and smooth them them into place with my pinky finger. Then I use a Q-Tip to clean up any stray brush marks over and under the browline. They stay put all day! I also use a natural (skin color) eye shadow (or one with a little sparkle) directly under the browline; it really helps define the brow.

I only have a few stray eyebrow hairs, so I just pluck them. Then I use a little eyebrow pencil to even them out, and then brush them with an eyebrow brush. They stay put. I agree with TotallyTam on the natural color for eyeshadow - I only use a little taupe (with a tiny bit of sparkle) in the crease of my eyelid. For special nighttime occasions I will brush a bit of highlighter on my upper eyelid for a little emphasis.

Less is more!

I have them waxed, though in the past I've had them threaded. I don't really have a strong preference for threading or waxing, I'm more concerned with finding someone who can do them well. I maintain with plucking in between waxings. In the past I've had them dyed, but after my last move I haven't found anyone who does a good job dying them.
