Gone are the days of drawn on, over-plucked, stick-thin brows. Thick, fluffy and structured brows are here to stay and we’re not mad about this trend. Like with hairstyles, certain brow shapes work best for different face shapes. There isn’t really a one-size-fits-all brow shape. So whether you are a first-time waxer, plucker or threader or you’ve let those brows grow out into full bush mode and you want to change the shape, use this list as a guide to take to your next brow appointment or when grooming your brows yourself to get the brows of your dreams.
Heart-shaped faces suit softly arched eyebrows to help balance out the elongated chin. Heart-shaped faces also wear fluffy, full eyebrows really well because the widest area of their face is the brow area, so you don’t have to worry about the brows overwhelming the face.
Square faces suit high, curved arches to help elongate and soften the face. High arches will usually help to offset the hard angles of a square face.
Oval faces have more versatile options with brows, they suit pretty much every shape. Your best bet is to let you natural brows guide the shape.
As oblong faces are quite narrow and long, straighter brows with soft edges help to widen the face. Avoid very arched brows as they will narrow the face even more.
If you are into full brows with sharp arches then you’re in luck. Round faces suit this style of brow because it gives the face a bit of structure. Just be careful not to overwhelm the face with very thick, fluffy brows if your face is on the smaller side.
Triangle face shapes suit curved brows with angles arches best, as it helps to lengthen the widest part of your face. The goal is to try to widen the forehead area.
