    You can either wax or pluck out the extra hair to get the eyebrows in shape. Before opting for any of these methods, ensure that you are comfortable with the same.

  • If you want to wax out the extra hair, you will have to wait for it to be at least a quarter of an inch long. Use small strips to complete the process as you pin back all your hair in place and brush up the brow hair for convenience
  • In case of plucking, tweezing or threading, you can look in the mirror and shape the brows simultaneously so that it is easy to maintain symmetry
  • You also need to be careful that you do not over- pluck or remove too much of hair as it would put the brows out of shape and too thin

Once you are happy with the shape of your eyebrows, you should also ensure that you maintain that shape otherwise, you may have to go back to square one and have to start all over again. Delaying regular plucking or waxing can lead to messy brows which are very hard to deal with besides lending an untidy look.
