How often should eyebrows be plucked?

Plucking is one of the basics of eyebrow care. As a rule, eyebrows should be plucked every four weeks. In the case of very thin eyebrows, we recommend a plucking break of four to eight weeks to regain the natural density, explains Amira Staehle, founder of "The Browery" (Berlin and Munich).

The price for the treatment ranges from 6 to 20 euros, depending on the hairdresser and beautician. In fact, only a trained professional should carry out the treatment, at home it is better to continue to use the tweezers.

Do not forget eyebrows when removing make-up!

Wherever make-up is applied, it must also be removed again – the eyebrows are no exception. Because: "The make-up clogs the hair follicles and prevents the nutrient supply. That’s why you should always remove makeup from your eyebrows as part of your daily care routine," advises Amira Staehle. "Brows are generally more sensitive with their fine hair follicles.
