Pluck, Don’t Shave, Your Unibrow
Never, ever use a razor on your eyebrows. Razors are much too big to afford the accuracy needed with the small patch of hair. In order to get at that troublesome spot between your eyes, you have to turn the blade at an awkward sideways angle and shave against the grain of your brows, increasing the likelihood of irritation or ingrown hairs. Instead, “use high-grade slant tweezers that provide good grip and precision,” says Duran. Remember to take a hot shower first or use a warm washcloth to open pores pre-tweezing. It will dull the sting significantly.
What You Need: Slant tweezers make this job significantly easier because the flat edge makes quick work of the general landscape, while the pointed tip can grasp super-fine hairs once you’re down to the details. A good option: Tweezerman Slant Tweezers [$23; groominglounge.com]
