If you got the lowdown on hair colors to try this summer, you may have also started to think about what you need to do with your eyebrows — do you need to change them to “match” your hair? If you are wondering what to do with your eyebrows this summer, today’s blog is for you.

Why Are Your Eyebrows Important?

Your eyebrows are essential to your overall look — they frame your face and are one of the main elements that create the overall architecture of your face. For this reason, maintaining your brows is an absolute must. Also, changing your eyebrows can dramatically change your look — there is more than one way to wear your brows!

When it comes to shape and color, your hairstylist would love to help you! Whether you are making a dramatic hair color change for summer or it’s the first time you’ve paid any mind to your brows, we can help!

Eyebrow Basics

First of all, you need to know that you can do your eyebrows in many different ways. However, there are some essentials you need to know that can make or break your brows — no matter your look.

Leave them alone

The best way to get the perfect brows is to leave them alone and leave it to the pros. Why? Because you are working on your own face and, because of this, you will never be able to have the optimal angle for shaping them. In other words, they will never be symmetrical if you do them yourself.

Know the architecture

If you’ve browsed the internet or watched YouTube to learn about brow shape, you probably have seen the diagram for a perfect brow — it shows where they should start your brow, the place for the ideal arch, and where your brow should end. To get the best eyebrow, this is the guide to follow.

Experiment with color & style

The ideal color for your brows and style depends not only on your hair color and skin tone, but also the look you wish to emulate. Do you want a fuller, more natural look or do you want to go for a bold look? This summer, anything goes — except for the tweezed-into-oblivion 90’s brow. That needs to stay in the history books.
