Tiny Trim

How does waxing an eyebrow do the same job as trimming?

I hear people say to wax instead of trim, but how does waxing make hairs less long? I have thick eyebrows and I don't see how waxing could shorten them, unless they removed every eyebrow hair. I use a beard trimmer with an eyebrow guard attachment and that works, but why would waxing be better?

waxing is a way of removing all of the selected hairs at once. the pros are that the hair takes longer to grow back, and it is quicker to rid oneself of unwanted hair in this manner. also, many say the hair will eventually stop growing in that area. the cons of this are that many people can develop an allergy to the wax, the wax may not be properly kept clean and infections could develop, the hair grows back stubbly, the hair must be a certain length before it can effectively be removed, it has been described as painful by many and uncomfortable by most, it is more costly than trimming, and the pulling action can damage the elasticity of the skin, causing wrinkles later on in life.

If your eyebrows are too long, or thick (my husband has the same issue) do this.... get an eyebrow comb (you can find them at the drugstore) and a tiny pair of sissors. comb through the eyebrow and trim the exess hair. or, you can use this little trimmer. it even has an attachement for thinning out eyebrows. it's very cheap, and can be found in many locations. i got ours at bed bath and beyond. this method does not pluck, it cuts. its pain free and easy to use.
