Eyebrow Waxing For Men: What To Expect

Eyebrow Waxing For Men: What To Expect

Contrary to popular belief, eyebrow waxing for men is a popular grooming service. If you or someone you know is considering this service for the first time, we encourage you/them to read through some of our general tips on how to prepare for the first visit and how to take care of your/their brows post service.

Before your waxing service:

  1. CLEAN SKIN
    Arrive at your appointment with clean skin. While the aesthetician will clean your eyebrows before waxing, it’s always best that your skin is clean and oil-free. 
  2. NO-NO’S
    Stay away from retinol one week before your service. Retinol is a chemical exfoliator. And since waxing removes hair and a surface layer of dead skin cells, if the skin has already been exfoliated, waxing the new, thinner skin could cause irritation. For the same reasons, getting a facial should be done after a waxing or several days before.
  3. COMMUNICATION
    Inform your waxer of any allergies you may have. Our wax is made from gentle, natural ingredients, which is safe for nearly all skin types. However to ensure the most hygienic treatment possible our Beauty Artists wear latex gloves during waxing services. Letting us know about allergies in advance, including latex, ensures you have the most comfortable and enjoyable experience.

After your waxing service:

  1. HANDS OFF
    Regardless of how often you wash, hands always carry excess oil and dirt. As much as you’ll want to touch your smooth skin after your service, avoid the temptation for 24 hours. Similar to exfoliating, waxing removes the top layer of dead skin cells, which makes your pores a bit vulnerable.
  2. NO SUN
    Avoid the sun for 24 hours. Freshly waxed eyebrows are sensitive and more susceptible to burning, which is never a good thing. If you must be outside, make sure to apply an oil-free sunscreen or wear a cap to provide shade to your brows.
  3. EXPECTED
    If you have sensitive eyebrow skin, you might experience small bumps or a little breakout. Let your beauty artists know if you regularly experience this after waxing so they can utilize the best protocol for your skin. In general, avoid putting oils on the skin immediately following the service.
