Every girl needs to pluck some gnarly eyebrow hairs every now and again, but believe it or not, one set of tweezers can’t do the whole job. Really!
Here’s a quick guide to picking the right tweezers for any situation:
- Thin tipped tweezers: Good for grasping small, fine hairs and targeting ingrown hairs. (Jewelers’ tweezers work just as well as expensive beauty ones, and for half the price.)
- Slanted tip tweezers: The most versatile type; this pair offers maximum precision in picking off specific offenders. (These are also great for removing splinters, which you should never pull straight out as you can damage your skin.) Try Revlon Expert Slant Tip Tweezers ($6.99).
- Square tip tweezers: Best for removing thick, coarse hairs or for plucking several hairs at once. Also called “straight tip”. Here are some affordable ones.
