Our hair and nails can be given the professional treatment once more, but when it comes to brow maintenance, we still have a little longer to wait.
So we’re glad Leigh Blackwell, founder of The London Brow Company, has been kind enough to share her easy tips for keeping our brows looking wow while waxing and threading is still off the menu.
Leave your brows alone…seriously!
“Do not be tempted to shape your own brows, you may undo all the hard work you and your therapist have done over the years,” she began.
She adds that you should keep plucking to an absolute minimum, and only reach for the tweezers if you have any stray hairs. She also recommends plucking hair from the centre of the brow to avoid a monobrow (unless that’s the look you rock).
“Invest in a sharp pair of tweezers like Precision Slanted Rose Gold Tweezers from The London Brow Company,” she advised.
Soak up the serum
“Use a nutrient-packed brow serum daily, preferably with keratin boost to really inject strength into your brows. Use the serum at night after your cleansing routine to allow eight hours of uninterrupted boosting,” she smiled, suggesting The London Brow Company’s Keratin Boost Brow Serum.
Alternatively, use a make-up product that has added brow-boosting benefits, like Charlotte Tilbury’s Legendary Brows or the Lash & Brow Perfector from No7.
Don’t be tempted to tint
“Tinting is a chemical process which we recommend leaving to the professionals,” Leigh urged. “Having a tint break is healthy. During lockdown focus on the regrowth and health of your brows and go au naturel.”
Top Tip : Use brow make-up while you are growing your brows out to hide any stray hairs that you are growing through. A good highlighter will cover underneath your brow so the small hairs that may look untidy while growing through will be hidden.
Give yourself a brow lamination
“Grab a (clean!) mascara wand and spritz with hair spray, holding it a slight distance away so as not to drench it. Comb through your brows, and this will keep them in place!” the brow hero instructed.
“You can also use a bar of soap, which is so easy. Wet your brow brush, rub it in a clear soap bar and brush into your brows. It’s the perfect way to get the laminated 'soap brow' look while in lockdown!”
