The Pluck-a-phobe's Guide to Eyebrow Shaping


Wax On, Wax Off

The most popular choice for non-pluckers is waxing. It takes hair two to three (and maybe more) weeks to grow back after a waxing session, so it's very effective. However, it can get pricey, with professional waxing jobs costing about $15 a pop, plus tip.

Waxing is pretty painful, and it isn't recommended if you have sensitive skin or are using any retinoid products -- it could further irritate or even tear your skin. You also need about a quarter-inch of hair growth, so you could end up looking a little shaggy between appointments.
