Shape Up Those Brows!

Okay guys, let’s talk brows. We know most redhead men let their brows grow and don’t give them a second thought, but you should. Just like you would groom your beard, your brows need some maintenance too. Well-groomed brows will frame your face immediately. We know most guys don’t know where to start when it comes to brow grooming, so we’ve got a guide for you: 

1. Trimming

Let’s be honest, your brows are overgrown. If you haven’t been trimming them they need some upkeep. The best way to trim your brows is with a brow trimmer or plain old eyebrow kit. This kit will include some small scissors (please don’t use your normal-sized ones) and a brush for your brows. 

If you’re using an electric brow trimmer, follow the directions that come with it. If you’re using a brow kit, trim any super long hairs you see sticking out, and then brush your brows upward towards your forehead and trim anything that seems too long. You want all the brow hairs to be relatively the same length. Don’t go too short since you still want that full brow coverage, but just give it a little shape-up. 

Trimming eyebrows for red-haired men requires precision to maintain a natural appearance. Start by combing your eyebrow hair upward to identify longer strands. Trim sparingly, avoiding cutting too close to the skin to prevent an unnatural look. Maintain the eyebrows’ natural shape and symmetry while trimming, and take your time to avoid overdoing it. If unsure, consulting a professional groomer or stylist experienced in eyebrow grooming can provide personalized guidance and assistance.

2. Waxing

We know most guys don’t want to wax their brows, but it can be a good way to clean them up and remove a unibrow. You can head to a waxer to have this done, or if you’re feeling brave try it at home. Waxing eyebrows for red-haired men requires careful attention to detail and skin sensitivity. Begin by selecting a gentle wax suitable for sensitive skin types. Prior to waxing, perform a patch test to assess skin reactions. Trim any excessively long hairs and cleanse the area thoroughly. Apply the wax with precision, following the desired eyebrow shape, and remove it swiftly against the hair growth direction. After waxing, soothe the skin with a calming lotion or aloe vera gel to minimize redness. Protect the waxed area from sun exposure for at least 24 hours. If unsure, consider consulting a professional esthetician for expert guidance and assistance.

3. Plucking

For stray hairs, use tweezers to pluck. Just be sure you don’t overpluck because it will take a while to grow back. Plucking can be painful and lead to irritation, so use sparingly for maintenanceFor men interested in plucking their eyebrows, achieving a polished look while maintaining masculinity is key. Begin by prepping the area with a thorough cleansing to remove dirt and oils. Invest in quality tweezers with a slanted edge for precision. Map out the desired shape using a white eyeliner pencil for guidance. Pluck individual hairs at the root in the direction of hair growth, starting from the bottom and working up following the natural arch. Take breaks as needed and regularly assess progress to ensure symmetry. Avoid overplucking to prevent sparse brows, focusing instead on shaping and removing stray hairs. Aftercare is crucial, so apply a soothing gel or cream to calm the skin. Maintain the brows regularly by plucking stray hairs as they grow back every few weeks. With these steps, men can effectively pluck their eyebrows to achieve a groomed appearance while retaining their masculine aesthetic.

4. Styling

You don’t have to style your brows, but it will elevate your look. Try giving them a brush through to tame the hairs, or add a clear (or tinted) brow gel if you want more definition. Read: Why and How Redhead Men Can Use Clear Brow Gel For Grooming

Clear brow gel can be a versatile grooming tool for red-haired men, helping to tame unruly eyebrow hairs and enhance their natural shape without adding color. Here’s how they can use it effectively:

1. Shape and Define: Use the spoolie brush to comb eyebrow hairs upwards, following the natural arch of the brows. This helps to define the shape and lift the hairs for a groomed look.

2. Set the Brows: Apply the clear brow gel by brushing it through the eyebrows in the direction of hair growth. This sets the hairs in place, keeping them neat and tidy throughout the day without adding any additional color.

3. Fill in Sparse Areas: If there are any sparse areas in the eyebrows, use the gel to brush the hairs in a way that fills in those gaps, creating the appearance of fuller brows while still maintaining a natural look.

4. Add Texture and Volume: Clear brow gel can also help add texture and volume to the eyebrows, making them appear thicker and more defined without looking overly groomed or unnatural.

5. Long-lasting Hold: Opt for a clear brow gel with long-lasting hold to ensure that the eyebrows stay in place all day without flaking or smudging.

6. Minimal Maintenance: One of the benefits of clear brow gel is its minimal maintenance. It provides a polished look with minimal effort, making it ideal for everyday wear.

By incorporating clear brow gel into their grooming routine, red-haired men can achieve well-groomed eyebrows that enhance their natural features without overpowering their overall look.
