4-Step Guide To Using Hot Wax Beads For Perfect Brow Shape

Perfectly groomed eyebrows are important for balancing facial features, framing the eyes, and contouring the shape of the face. Waxing with LYCON wax is a quick, lasting, and (relatively) painless way to achieve the perfect shape! Here is a step-by-step guide on how to achieve a flawless brow shape with LYCON!

STEP 1: Visualize 

Start by analyzing the brow shape and visualizing how you would like them to look. What is the client’s preference and style? Does your client prefer thick or thin brows? Are they growing them out or are they wanting a more defined look? 

Quick Tip: To determine where to remove hair from, align a pencil from the inner corner of the eye to the side of the nose. Any hair growth between the eyebrows from this point inward should be removed. Then place the pencil vertically so that it passes across the outer edge of the iris of the eye. Where the pencil crosses the brow should be the highest point of the brow. Finally, place the pencil from the corner of the nose on a line that passes the outer corner of the eye to determine the minimum length of the outward taper of the brow.

STEP 2: Prepare the skin with LYCON’s LYCOtane Cleanser

Next, it is time to prepare the skin for waxing. LYCOtane Cleanser is a hospital-grade antiseptic that should be applied to the skin before waxing. It is formulated with Jasmine and Chamomile, it helps to remove any surface residue and make-up. It is also recommended to cleanse immediately following the wax as it helps to close the hair follicles. Once the area is cleansed, apply a very thin layer of a LYCON’s Pre-Waxing oil in order to soothe and protect the skin. LYCON’s Pre-Waxing Oil ensures the wax grips the hair and not the skin. Now the skin is ready to be waxed!

Quick Tip: Only a small amount of oil is required. It can be easier to put a few drops on the back of your hand and apply it from there. 

STEP 3: Apply LYCON’s LYCOJet Hard Wax WITH the hair growth

LYCON has a number of Hot (Hard) waxes that are perfect for facial area waxing. LYCON’s Lycojet Wax and LYCOdream (both available in bead form!) are top choices for pulling super short hairs and leaving the skin silky soft. LYCOdream has extra soothing ingredients in it such as Aloe Vera, Arnica, and Argan Oil, and is super pliable. Note that the first wax application should always be applied in the direction of the hair growth which helps to reduce the possibility of catching any longer hairs with the wax. Always remove the wax against the hair growth and hold the skin firmly with one hand to prevent unnecessary and painful pull on the skin!

Quick Tip: Start with a small amount of wax on the tip of the applicator stick and place it carefully on the skin underneath the brow closest to the eye. Then using a rolling action carefully push the wax out along the brow line.   

STEP 4: Apply LYCON’s Hot wax AGAINST the hair growth

Now that you have already removed most of the hair, it is ok to go back over the same area by applying the wax in the opposite direction of the hair growth which will pick up those last stubborn hairs. Finally, apply your favorite after-waxing care product. LYCON’s Tea Tree Soothe is a great choice and offers a light, moisturizing, and soothing lotion for after the wax. 

Quick Tip: Practice makes perfect! A great way to practice is to draw brows on the back of your hand and use this as a way to practice your wax application over and over again. Having a quality wax product that you are confident in is a key factor to your success and your clients’ overall satisfaction!
