Tweezers are a PITA,

i used 'nads' for a while but its hard to keep the consistancy of it right,

Tweezers for me. But it has to be my Ruby & Millie ones, cheap tweezers drive me crazy!

There are tweezers and tweezers though, I have some Tweezerman ones and they really are great. A magnifying mirror is essential too IMHO.

tweezerman tweezers are worth every penny. fabulous, hair slides out without pain or difficulty.

Tweezerman here aswell. The trick for me is to do a quick check for strays each night before bed and then you never lose the shape and it's only one or two to pluck rather than a whole forest!

Tweezermans, toothbrush for tidying them and little scissors for trimming the stragglers.

I have mine Threaded

but there are actually great cheap tweezers ...I've been through quite a few over the years and one of the best I've had are the cheap ones in Tescos

Place a warm flannel on eyebrow before plucking to open pain

Tweezers. Nice and simple. I also pluck out my chin hair and moustache with them. blush

One of the best tricks you can do yourself to neaten your eyebrows after plucking/whatever is to brush them downwards and then using small scissors trim the longer hairs hanging lower along your natural brow line.

You can then brush them upwards and follw the top line of your brow. It makes a massive difference.
