It’s simple and it makes sense; after all, if you style and set your brows into place first, it’ll make it all the more clearer as to which hairs need to go and which need to stay. Chances are you’ll find you’re tweezing way less too, as unstyled brows tend to look more unkempt, tricking us into overplucking.
Wolff’s step-by-step goes a little something like this:
1. Brush brow hair upwards with a clean spoolie to assess the natural shape, trim if necessary (we’re talking half a millimeter people and if you’re not confident, leave it to the pros).
2. Apply a soap brow product or clear pomade/gel product to set brows in place. This then allows you to fill in any gaps easily. Wolff uses a pencil and hair-like strokes.
3. Once your brows are styled the way you like them, then and only then, is when you pluck. Wolff tweezes the hairs with a quick motion in the direction of hair growth, to prevent breakage and allow for clean removal.
