Your Main Tweeze

www.leichic.comYou learned it the hard way: too much (or not enough) plucking and waxing are your arch enemies.

But you have an ally in eyebrow guru Rene Rodriguez. He reshapes brows to make subtle – but noticeable – changes that can make your eyes look more open, emphasize your best features and even make your face look a bit younger.

Rodriguez approaches brow shaping like a haircut (which it is, essentially) and has his clients sit upright in a chair as he wields tweezers and mini-scissors with precision. Before he starts, he’ll sketch out the arch shape he’s aiming for. He plucks and snips, and often stands back to size up the progress like a painter standing back from a portrait.

He’s so painstaking, the sessions take about an hour to achieve two perfect brows.

So cancel the wax appointment.
Looks like your pluck’s about to change.
