How To Clean Up Your Eyebrows At Home

While we are closed due to coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many of our clients are missing out on our usual appointments: professional haircuts, colours, manicures, and waxes are all currently impossible, which puts our beauty routines out of whack. We can live with naked fingernails, but our eyebrows are one of the first things we notice when we look in the mirror everyday. Although pro-bushy brows are in trend, I bet you would still prefer to avoid a unibrow situation, whether we’re in quarantine or not.

How to trim your eyebrows

The best way to start cleaning up your overgrown brows is by trimming them with eyebrow scissors. To know where to trim, use a brush to push your eyebrow hair upward, in the opposite direction of hair growth. “Brush your brows up with a clean spoolie and slowly trim away the excess hair above your brow with brow scissors. If you’re new to trimming your brows, do a tiny bit at a time until you’re happy with the results. The key to trimming is to trim one hair at a time at an angle, never trim in a straight row across. Your brow ends up looking very blunt and stubby.” – says Brittni


Brittni recommends that you use several products to successfully trim your eyebrows the Kelley Baker Brow Tweezers and the Kelley Baker Angle Brush. She prefers this brow brush because it’s a double-duty product: The spoolie end is used for grooming while the angled brush end is used to fill in your eyebrows with powder or cream products (if that’s part of your regular brow routine).


How to tweeze your eyebrows

Tweezing is the simplest and quickest way to clean up your eyebrows at home, although it’s more painful than trimming. For the most successful tweezing experience, wash and exfoliate the skin around your eyebrows before plucking. 

If you typically fill in your brows, do this before tweezing so that you know which hairs actually need to be plucked. When tweezing, remember to always pull the hairs in the direction in which they grow. Start by tweezing any stray hairs between your brows and any hairs that are far away from your current eyebrow shape under the brows. 

Although plucking pesky stray hairs is super satisfying, don’t go overboard. Plucking an excessive amount of hair will irritate the skin, so give your skin a break once you’ve plucked the major stragglers. 


How to shape your eyebrows:

Everyone prefers a different eyebrow shape, from full, bushy brows to clean, sharp lines. 


  • The inner edges of your brow should line up with the outside of your nose.

  • The highest point of your arch should be where the diagonal line extending from the outside of your nose to the outside of where your pupil would hit.

  • The outer edge of your brow should taper off at the point where your eyebrow and the diagonal line from your nose to the outside corner of your eye would intersect.

  • The bottom of your outer and inner edges should line up horizontally.

Brittni loves to use Kelly Baker Three Bee Brow Kit to fill in the brows.


Happy hair removal!
