If the eyebrows are too long, they are trimmed. However, this does not make them any less full.

· Application of the wax

Let your waxer know the shape you would like to achieve. The wax is applied on the top, in between and on the bottom of your eyebrows then pulled off.

This process is repeated until the desired shape is attained
