Making the decision to wax or pluck can be somewhat challenging. While waxing is ideal for some people, plucking can be a more suitable option for others. It is important to think about a few factors before making the decision to either wax or pluck. Here are some of the things that you will want to consider.
You will want to consider how much pain you can handle. It would be easy to tell you if waxing is more painful than plucking or vice versa, but it is really a personal preference. Some people prefer getting the pain over with by waxing all at once, which is similar to ripping off a Band-Aid. While some people find plucking painful, others canâ€™t take it. Note that the more often you pluck your eyebrows, the less painful it is going to feel for you over time.
The good thing about having your eyebrows waxed is that you will get the flawless look that we all want. It is much easier to ensure that all of the hairs have been removed from the eyebrow area. Keep in mind that plucking can also give you great effects, but you are going to need to spend more time pulling out each hair. Some people have blonde eyebrow hair that is hard to remove unless it is waxed. Waxing, by far, gives the best results. Unless you know what you are doing, it is a bad idea to try to remove your eyebrow hair through waxing, however.
Another factor that you will want to take into consideration is the cost of waxing and plucking your eyebrows. Waxing your eyebrows is going to become more expensive over time. If you have it done at a salon, you will need to pay about $7-10 for a certified esthetician to wax your eyebrows. The main benefit of plucking is that it is free. You can purchase do it yourself home wax kits, but these can lead to infections if you do not follow instructions. Wax strips are another cost effective alternative to waxing, but the results are not as good.
Deciding to wax or pluck your eyebrows can be a challenging one. Experiment with both waxing or plucking a few times to determine which method of eyebrow hair removal is the most suitable choice for you. Both eyebrow plucking and waxing offers its advantages and disadvantages.
