The Brows are “in” ladies and gentlemen! The bold messy/un-kept brow is showing up everywhere, from high end fashion shows to Vogue Magazine. Our brows are essential to our face, according to Vanita Parti, founder of Blink Brow Bars, “shape well, they have the power to change the overall appearance of our face, lending balance and symmetry.” The bold, messy brow is the “thing” now; however, keeping it too bold or too thin for the wrong facial structure, could become disastrous instead of fabulous. So, how do we know what shape is best fit for us to create that balance and symmetry for our face? Base it on the shape of your face. There are different types of shapes to the face such as heart, round, or square.
The heart shape face needs a bolder, bushier, straighter brow in order to create that balance and symmetry. A good brow icon to use as an example is Cara Delevingne. The round shape face is a little different. Those with more of a round face need to be careful, when arching the brow. If you over arch, it will make the face more circular. This particular individual needs to create more of an angular appearance by adding a soft point three quarters of the way along the brow. A good brow icon to use with a round face is Hanna Reid. Lastly, those with a square shape face need to focus on softening the face by creating curves in the brow, only pluck from the beneath the brow to create a pronounced arch directly above the iris. A good brow icon to use for this type of face shape is Sandra Bullock.
As you can see there are various types of brow shapes for certain facial shapes; particularly for the heart, round, and square shape. These tools will allow you and or your esthetician to take you from disastrous to fabulous! Come to salon 140 so we can make YOU look and feel fabulous.
