How to Select the Perfect Eyebrow
Hear from an expert how to craft the perfect eyebrow.
What is YOUR perfect eyebrow? When it comes to eyebrows, it is not a one size fits all. There are THREE major components to keep in mind when shaping the ideal brow.
Face shape, including eye shape and forehead width/height. What is YOUR golden ratio.
The Golden ratio, or the most timeless mathematical principles of aesthetic proportions, can directly be applied to your face for the ideal brows. This allows us to draw the brow according to each individual’s bone structure ensuring the brow beautifully frames the face and fits on the forehead.
How experts measure eyebrows according to the Golden Ratio.
Brows should begin directly above the middle of the nostril
– Avoid going too close or too far apart so that the eyes do not look to wide-set or too close-set
Brows should end where the corner of the nostril connects with the outer corner of the eye
– Brows that end too soon look too short, and brows that end too long drag the face down to create an expression of sadness.
Highest arch point should connect right in the middle of the nose and outside the pupil.
– Going in too far out or too far in risks the client looking startled or expressionless. Our eyebrows carry so much expression.
Natural Hair Color, what color will look most natural?
When it comes to color choice, I like to give three different options. Light, Medium, and Dark. It is important to remember that healed results are 15% lighter than fresh results, so choosing the initial color means choosing a color that will heal well with the root hair color of the client.
Client Preference – bold or thinner? Arch or more of a natural slope.
Last and often times most importantly, I like to ask all clients, what is YOUR preferred eyebrow. I give my recommendations and then factor in your preference, afterall, it is YOUR face.
