Well-shaped eyebrows change the whole appearance of your face. Not only that, but they also bring about a spike in your confidence. We all have that one favorite aesthetician who knows just the right way to shape our eyebrows to perfection. But what if we have to do it ourselves at some point? How to go about it? Which tools to use? Which eyebrow shape to choose?
Here’s the best guide to shape and flaunt your eyebrows. Like a pro!
Before we start on how to go about shaping eyebrows, let’s first take a look at the variety of eyebrow shapes. Everybody is unique and has their own unique pair of eyebrows. But most eyebrow shapes fall into certain categories. So for best results, we need to identify our eyebrow shape, and then begin to trim and shape them.
There are 5 main types of eyebrow shapes —
- S-shaped: Starts with a dip, arches up softly, and then again comes down
- Soft-angled: The arc of the eyebrow is a soft curve
- Hard-angled: The arc of the eyebrow is a hard angle, like an inverted tick mark
- Rounded: The eyebrow shape is a simple curve
- Straight: A straight line, no curves or angles
The general rule of thumb is — shape your eyebrow according to its original shape. This enhances what nature gifted you. Having said that, you also need to take into consideration your face type, the current trend, and the thickness of your brows to shape them further.
Eyebrows and Face Shape
To get the most beautiful, most flattering eyebrows, it is very important to consider your face type.
Almost all eyebrow shapes suit an oval face type. But the most flattering is the soft-angled shape. It helps balance your features.
For a square face shape, go for straight, thick brows, with a soft, imperceptible arc. This draws attention to your eyebrows and eyes, and softens the angles of your face.
Hard-angled brows work wonders on a round face. The high vertical points of your brow angles create an illusion of a longer face. They also make the face look slimmer.
The rounded eyebrow shape works well. This shape helps soften the harsh angles of the face.
Flat brows are the best. You need to make the face look wider than it is, and flat brows do just that. They draw the face out horizontally. If you like, you can add a slight arc at the ends, but not too sharp.
Thick V/S Thin Eyebrows: How to Shape Them
If nature has given you thick eyebrows, then call it a blessing in this decade. Because that’s the trend out there. However, it may take a little more work to tame and trim the thickness. It is also a task to keep the brows looking neat, especially if they are dense.
- Brush your eyebrows, marking the shape you wish to achieve, and removing the hairs around it.
- Start where the eyebrow begins, removing excess hairs. Work through the top of the eyebrow and then pinch out the hairs at the bottom of the
- Finally, shape the ends carefully, as they can give you that neat, groomed
- In the end, brush the brows in the direction of their growth and gently trim away any hairs that are longer than the others.

Ways to Shape the Eyebrows
Waxing for arms and legs has been favored for a long time. But it may give us a little scare when it comes to our brows. However, this method gives very neat results. It is also long-lasting as the hairs are pulled right out from the roots. Waxing is preferable for women with thick, dense eyebrows.
Be very careful though, and make sure you have a practiced hand with your wax kit. The area around the eyebrows is small and sensitive. So go very slow.
Threading as a concept can be intimidating, but it is one of the best ways of hair removal. You get the neat result of waxing, but without exposing your skin to hot wax. Eyebrow threading uses fine cotton threads that are very strong. The threads are twisted taut and used to pull out unwanted hairs. This method is more precise than even waxing. It is faster and doesn’t cost as much.
A tip is to try your hand at threading your upper lip or chin hairs first. This way you will get comfortable with the hand movements before going for the brows.
This is a pretty easy method to shape the brows. It is a lot more painful as we target one single hair at a time. And even though we become numb to the sting after a while, it still hurts. The best part about plucking is that there are lesser chances of messing up, as you are going slow and hair-by-hair. So you notice quickly if you have veered away from your coveted shape.
Plucking is ideal for women with thin eyebrows and scanty growth.
If you want to start with plucking to shape your eyebrows, then you need a good pair of tweezers. And we at Savarnas Mantra produce high quality Precision Brow Tweezers. Its slanted tip gives you better precision, and the head of the tool is made to give you the perfect grip.
