Brow & Eye Enhancements

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

Sharp angled eyebrows

Round eyebrows

Round eyebrows

Flat eyebrows

Flat Eyebrows

 

S-shaped eyebrows

Soft Angled eyebrows

Soft angle 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.

 

 

Round

A round face can usually be complemented with sharp angled brows which have a high arch. This helps create defined better lines.

Shape-round

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

Heart Shaped

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. In fact, we’re so confident that we would like to give you $10 off your first wax.

Eyes Unique

Brow shape, Eyelash Tint, Eyebrow Tint and a Lash Lift

In order to be truly beautiful, we have developed our unique four-step system for flawless and gorgeous brows.

Step one:

Consultation and evaluation to determine the best eyebrow shape that will compliment your face shape, bone structure and the shape of your eyes.

Step two:

Our pre-wax skin cleanser will remove dirt and oil to ensure maximum grip on the hair whilst being gentle on the skin. This helps to give a clean, sharp and smoother finish to your brow shape.

Step three:

We have a choice of two waxes specially formulated just for Essential Beauty salons. Our waxing professionals can help you chose the best option for your individual skin type. Our waxes are gentle on the skin and have a superior grip on the hair for maximum comfort and results.

Step four:

Rejuvenation – We finish off with a relaxing massage around your eyebrows. We use our unique ingrown hair serum, Ingro Stopper to soothe and protect your skin.

Doing it yourself: grooming your brows at home can lead to removing too much hair leaving unnatural shapes and possible over tweezing. It is best to leave your brows to the professionals who have tertiary qualifications in determining what the best eyebrow shape is for your face.

They will also be able to determine the exact amount of hair that needs to be removed. Essential Beauty offers professional brow shaping. We are the expert in eyebrows. We undertake a thorough eyebrow consultation to determine the best shape for you,

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.

Eyebrow waxing is not just for the ladies. Manscaping including eyebrow waxing is becoming very popular with men who are welcome at Essential Beauty to book in with our eyebrow professionals.

When you leave one of our salons, your brows will look gorgeous and flawless. Here are five tips for you to maintain flawless brows.

With an eyebrow pencil or powder:

Step one:

Commence with the tail end of the eyebrow and use light, short strokes to fill in the tail by starting at the arch and extending towards the end of the eyebrow. Finish off the end with a point.

Step Two

Build your baseline across the bottom of the body of the brow.

Step Three

Frame and fill the body of the brow. Create a parallel line to the baseline of the brow. Then fill the area in between while avoiding the start of the eyebrow.

Step Four

Fill in the start of the eyebrow. Complete the inside edge of the brow using a light touch. This will avoid a “drawn” on look.

Step Five

Blend, blend and blend. Using an Essential Beauty spoolie brush, blend it all together to reach

Facial-hair-removal

Reason one

Feeling Smooth is better because waxing removes the facial hair from the root as opposed to cutting it off at the surface. This causes the hair to grow back smoothly and leaves you razor rash and stubble free.

Reason two

Waxing is economical and you do not have to make a large investment to be silky smooth 24/7.

Reason three

Less hair will grow back. Now that is good news. One of the great benefits of waxing your facial hair is that the more you wax, the less hair will grow.

Reason three

With waxing you get long lasting results. Waxing lasts 2 to 3 weeks longer than other forms of facial hair removal. Just wax and forget. Perfect!

Eyebrows:

The eyes are the window to the soul. Check out our full section on eyebrow waxing.

Ears:

Many people find themselves in need of hair removal from the ear and waxing is a superb option. It is best to leave this to our professional staff because the ears can be sensitive and difficult to remove hair from, unless you have eyes in the back of your head!

Cheek:

The hair on the cheek can be difficult to remove also because it is fine and light. Waxing can really assist in this regard because it can extract every last strand of facial peach fuzz. As mentioned earlier, waxing provides one of the longest times in between services for hair regrowth.

 Lip:

When undertaken by a trained waxing professional, waxing is the best method and much less painful than other methods.

 

Chin:

Whilst there are other methods for the removal of hair from the chin, waxing is the most effective. The chin can be known to have thicker, coarser hair with stronger roots making waxing, the optimum choice for hair removal over other techniques.

Hairlines and sideburns:

Most people have sideburns but when they are darker, they can make you feel self-conscious especially when wearing your hair in a particular manner. For example, being pulled back. The same is also true for an uneven hairline. The ability to wax your hairline and sideburns will give you a clean and perfect line. Also, it will give you the added benefit that hair returning in the future, will be finer and consequently be easier to manage.

Nose

Nose hairs can become long and unruly and basically stick out. Our focus is to wax the outer edge of your nostrils and also to some degree, the inner nostril. It is important to see one of our waxing professionals because of this sensitive area to ensure that you do not remove too much hair. Remember, nose hairs actually do have a purpose but need to be managed.

Neck – Front and Back:

 

Waxing is a long-lasting option for hair removal which results in the hair growing back finer over time. In addition to cleaning the hairline on your face, waxing the hairline on the back of your neck will give you a clean line also.

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.

What can I expect from Essential Beauty?

There are many ways you can remove hair from the face. Making a booking with one of our waxing professionals Online or in salon. They will help you determine where you should remove those pesky hairs using the appropriate method.

What about sensitivity?

The skin on your face is more sensitive than other areas and so you may experience some slight sensitivity. If you experience extreme sensitivity, please consult one of our professionals.

How long will my wax last?

Why eyelash or eyebrow tinting?

  • You want to wake up looking fresh and youthful.
  • You do not want to fuss with makeup, pencils and mascara.
  • You want to add fullness and definition to your eyebrows and eyelashes.
  • You want to cover grey, white or sun-bleached hairs.
  • You want to regain the eyebrow definition you once had.
  • You want to open up your eyes with eyelash tinting.

  • You want sweat-proof, moisture-proof colour for your holiday.

Do…

  • Have an idea about the colour you would like. Most people – even if they are blonde – choose Blue Black, the darkest colour for the eyelashes. For a more natural, subtle look, your therapist can mix black and a natural brown.
  • If you’re pregnant or prone to allergic reactions, ask for a patch test first. Although tinting is generally completely safe, it’s good to test before any treatment.

 

Don’t…

  • Wear your contact lenses to the treatment and wait until the next day before wearing them again.

What happens during eyelash and eyebrow tinting…?

    • Your wax professional will consider if a patch test is needed. If you have never had a tint before or you are prone to allergic reactions and eczema, she will advise you to do a patch test.
    • Your wax professional will discuss your colour choice with you. It’s best to stay subtle if you are unsure. You can always make another appointment and go darker, but you cannot lighten your lashes and you will have to wait 4-6 weeks for the colour to fade.
    • Your wax professional can mix a customised colour for you. For your eyebrows, she can also use a darker colour at the very front, a lighter tone in the middle where there are more hairs, and darker again on the arch and ends to give a more textured natural look.
    • Your wax professional may place Vaseline around the area to protect your skin from the tint. Some wax professionals may omit this step.
    • If you’re having an eyelash tint, your wax professional will place protective pads under your bottom eyelashes.
    • You’ll be asked to close your eyes and relax while the tint is applied.
    • Your wax professional will leave the tint on for 10-15 minutes depending on the colour and thickness of your eyelashes and eyebrows. If you have grey or white hairs, the tint may need to be left on longer.
    • Your wax professional will use wet cotton pads to wipe the tint from your lashes or eyebrows.
    • If you are having your eyelashes tinted, there is an extra step. You’ll be asked to keep your eyes closed and tilt your head to one side. Your wax professional will then remove any remaining tint by flushing it with water.
    • Your wax professional will massage eye cream into your skin, then you’ll be asked to check your eyelash or eyebrow tinting.

If you feel one of these steps has been missed or has not  been done well, please let your wax professional know. When you work together with your wax professional, you will get the best possible results.
