The best brow shape for your face is completely individualised. Every design is unique. Having said that, there are five basic eyebrow shapes that are defined and our waxing professionals will help you find the best natural brow shape that works for your face.
Brow shapes include:
Sharp angled eyebrows
Soft Angled eyebrows
It is critical to have our eyebrow professionals help you determine which shape is best for your face so that you can have the best possible result.
Here are some common face shapes noting that everyone is individual.
A round face can usually be complemented with sharp angled brows which have a high arch. This helps create defined better lines.
Long or Oval
This type of face shape gives you the advantage of being able to have a soft arch or a flat brow. If you have an arch that is too high, it can make the face look longer which we do not want to accentuate
A heart-shaped face is complemented with a natural and soft angled arch which will draw attention to the upper half of your face.
Rectangle or Square
Most square faces have very well-defined sharp angles as features. A slightly angled brow will create balance and uniqueness to the face.
At Essential Beauty, we believe everyone deserves to have beautiful eyebrows that get noticed. Using our unique four-step waxing process, we will prepare and pamper your eyebrows for the most comfortable experience you have ever had.
And the result? Perfectly shaped, well-defined eyebrows that will leave you feeling gorgeous.

Threading: involves using cotton thread to remove rows of hair from your eyebrow. It is a new technique with drawbacks. Waxing is a quicker and less painful solution. This is because threading removes each hair on an individual basis creating an uncomfortable experience.
Further, with waxing, you can achieve sharp clean brow lines that last longer. In addition, threading is also problematic on sensitive skin especially if you have skin conditions like acne.
Our Natural Comfort Film Wax and trained waxing professionals can work on even the most sensitive skin. It is difficult to find a skilled threader, but our trained waxing professionals are available all day every day.
Tweezing: Similar to threading, tweezing is a slow and more painful experience than waxing. In addition, the results do not last as long and there have been many cases where people have “over tweezed”, causing permanent damage. Having said that, tweezing is still a great way to take care of any stray hairs that are left over and can be used in between your appointment to keep your brows looking they’re very best.

There are multiple ways that you can remove unwanted hair from your face. Below, we compare waxing to other hair removal procedures so that you can make an informed decision that suits your particular situation. We want you to be the best you can be.
Waxing versus threading
Threading involves using a string of cotton thread to remove hair and short rows from your face. Because it removes each hair individually, it can be uncomfortable and painful. In fact, more so than facial waxing. In addition, threading can be very difficult on sensitive skin particularly if you suffer acne or have any other skin problems.
Our Natural Comfort Film Wax and trained waxing professionals, know that we can treat even the most sensitive skins. It can be difficult to find a good threader, but with our trained waxing professionals, you need look no further for an expert.
Waxing versus shaving
Face shaving for women is certainly not recommended as the results are short-term and the razor only cuts the hair and doesn’t remove it from the root. You also liable to have stubble regrowth which can look embarrassing.
Waxing versus tweezing
Tweezing is a slower and more painful experience to waxing and the results do not last as long. In addition, it is very easy to break or miss the small hairs. Some women use an epilator to tweeze the hair from the roots more quickly. This is a lot more painful and we recommend manual tweezers to take care of those superfluous stray hairs and create a more blended look with your forehead. Our trained professionals know how to create an eyebrow shape and blend into the forehead at the same time.
Waxing versus Laser Hair Removal and IPL
Both of these can be expensive and require a number of treatments. In addition, there are less expensive at-home options but these can be potentially dangerous and can give terrible results. In addition, laser is not recommended for people with light or dark skin as it does not work.
Waxing versus bleaching
When you bleach unwanted facial hair, this doesn’t remove the hairs, it just makes them less noticeable. This option can work if you don’t have a lot of hair but the hair is still visible up close. Further, bleaching products can irritate sensitive skin. Our Natural Comfort Film Wax and trained professionals know how to wax even the most sensitive of skins.
Waxing versus depilatory creams
Chemicals present in depilatory creams weaken hair follicles so you can wipe away the hair from your skin. Because of the harsh chemicals involved, they can irritate your skin. Since the skin on your face is especially sensitive, this is not recommended. Our Natural Comfort Film Wax and waxing professionals have 25+ years of waxing the most sensitive skins and removing facial hair.
