It is recommended to use a cream wax that is heated up in a wax pot. Cream wax is the mildest type of wax-it will work well with sensitive and delicate skin. Heated wax is more effective because it sticks onto the hair better than pre-made cold wax strip patches, and yields a smoother skin.During the process of heating wax, gloves and towel would be of great help.

1. Tie your hair to prevent wax from sticking onto it. You need to see your brows clearly, too.

3. Clean the eyebrow surface area. Apply pre-wax cleanser on eyebrows and around the skin, and then apply a light amount of powder using a cotton swab.

4. A wax equally in the direction of hair growth using the applicator stick to shape your eyebrow. Only apply enough wax to cover the eyebrow hair surface where you want the hair removed. Do not apply too much wax so that it oozes onto hair that you do not want to remove.

5. Apply the wax equally in the direction of hair growth, leaving a tab at the end of the strip. Press on it and firmly smooth your hand across the strip a couple of times into the direction of hair growth, to assure that the wax is sticking into the hair and to check if the wax has slightly cooled down.

6. Hold on to the tab end of the strip that is not attached to hair. Press on the skin at the end of the brow with one hand, and abruptly pull the strip in the reverse direction of hair growth. Never pull up, which might your natural tendency. Afterward, push the hand downward onto the skin to help ease some of the pain. This strip can be used again to stick to and remove any remaining hair.

7. Continue on your other brow, the midsection, and on top of your brows. Then use tweezers to remove any stray hair on top that is outside the natural shape of your eyebrow.

8. After the procedure, you can clean the remaining wax off your skin using petroleum jelly, baby oil, or any wax remover.
