How to WAX & GROOM your EYEBROWS at HOME

I invested in a GiGi wax kit  4 years later ago and I absolutely love it! I use this wax kit for my whole body. Depending on how coarse the hair is, I alternate the wax between hard wax and soft wax.

In the past, I’ve gotten my eyebrows threaded and waxed. I loved the results from threading but its so painful for me. The very last time, I had them threaded, I tear so much from the pain that I lost one of my contacts and I couldn’t see. Theses are prescription contacts…I am blind as a bat! It was so embarrassing walking down the street with one eye open. I stopped on a corner and called my husband to guide me home. Such a sad day! As for waxing, I love the results as well. But it was a hit or miss. The lady that I trusted with my brows was very popular and when there was  a long wait for her at times and she would “rush” through the waxing and grooming. I wasn’t of fan of that.

About a year ago, I mustered up the courage to wax my own eyebrows and it has been my routine ever since. I love the way my eyebrows turn out. Its super easy once you understand the “shape” and hairs of your eyebrows. I save time and money! Its a win win! You should try it too. Its really not that bad.


Waxing has many benefits. As I mentioned earlier, I use it on all my body. It prevents in-grown hairs and your hair grows slower making you go longer between waxes. I plan on sharing more of my wax routine as the warm weather begins.

Eyebrow Routine & Grooming: How to Fix Uneven Eyebrows

Eyebrows are everything! They shape your face with or without makeup! This video is my eyebrow grooming and shaping routine. I have distinctly different eyebrows due to years of waxing and threading. It had damaged my eyebrows to the point that I have areas that hair doesn’t grow that SHOULD have hair. Now I let them grow and have full control as to how much hairs I take off. I also fill them in to even out the shapes and give the illusion in the bald spots that I have hair. I hope you enjoy this video.

GiGi Brazilian Hard Wax Kit

IMG_0590.jpg Product Review:  GiGi Brazilian Waxing Kit Spring is here and it’s my first spring living in the hustle and bustle of New York City. As a new mom who is always on the run, the time I have to “sparkle” myself up is limited. I was interested in transitioning to waxing because shaving it takes longer and it has to be done more frequent. Waxing does a better job at removing hair from the follicle and you can go more weeks before touching up. I came across the GiGi wax company which I hear great things about them.
