Choosing The Right Eyebrow Shape For Your Face

With the thin eyebrow trend of the 2000’s looking like a speck in our collective rear-view mirror, the focus is now on definition and volume. These days it’s all about the bushy brow. A thick and luscious line on your face that accentuates your facial features. But, just as choosing the right hairstyle is important for your face, choosing the right eyebrow shape can drastically change the way you look.

What Is My Face Shape?

The first step in picking the right eyebrows for your face shape is determining the shape itself. Most people will know their general shape, with it being fairly obvious from a quick inspection in the mirror. However, some of us have more complex facial structures that are harder to clearly classify. The shape of your face can generally be classed into one of the following formations. Each shape has their own characteristics, making it easy for you to identify which one most resembles yours.

  • Round

You have widely spaced cheeks and your face appears to be the same length horizontally as vertically.

  • Elongated (Oval)

Your face’s length is longer than its width. Sometimes with a more pronounced forehead.

  • Heart Shaped

Your face tapers down to a sharper chin, with your overall length longer than its width.

  • Square

You have a prominent jawline, giving your face a square, angular look.

  • Diamond Shaped

You have a smaller forehead and your face appears widest at the eyes or temples.

What Eyebrows Work With What Shape?

It will always depend on personal preference when it comes to your brows. You know what works best and you’re the one that has to look at it every day! However, The Beauty & Brow Parlour offers you some styling advice that works as a general rule of thumb. The following are recommended eyebrow shapes:

  • Eyebrows For Round Faces

A full brow with a sharp, medium arch.

  • Eyebrows For Elongated Faces

A straighter, thinner brow.

  • Eyebrows For Heart Shaped Faces

A fuller brow with a softer, medium arch.

  • Eyebrows For Square Faces

A high arch with a moderately thick brow.

  • Eyebrows For Diamond Shaped Faces

A curved brow with a medium thickness.

Brow Shaping Methods

When it comes to shaping your brows there are really only two choices. Brow threading or eyebrow waxing. Most of us already have a preference, becoming accustomed to one over the other. Each method of beauty treatment has its benefits and drawbacks. Eyebrow threading allows for a more precise and detailed finish. The unique twisting motion results in lines of hair removed instantly, giving you more control over the shape. Eyebrow threading is less painful than waxing and generally suited to people who may experience sensitive skin and other dermatological issues.

Eyebrow waxing is the other option. Comfort levels vary for the individual, with some people claiming waxing even hurts less than brow threading. Waxing can offer longer lasting shaping, as the hair that grows back will usually be finer and softer. Allowing you to maintain your overall shape for longer periods of time.
