Last year during lockdown, we had to take our beauty routines into our own hands.
For some, that worked out fine. But for the majority, we learnt through trial and error that it was probably best to hide the tools away and wait to see a professional.
Watch: Here's how you self care, according to your horoscope. Post continues after video.
Kristin Fisher knows a thing or two about brows. As the founder and CEO of the luxe salon Kristin Fisher Eyebrows in Sydney's Double Bay, she's tinted and tamed plenty.
Appearing on Mamamia's You Beauty podcast, Kristin explained that there are three things you should really avoid doing to your brows at home. And because she's the expert, we took notes.
Trimming your brows might seem like a simple job. Grab some of those 'lil baby scissors and chop off the excess hair, right? Not exactly.
If you try trimming your eyebrows yourself with no experience, it's very easy to take too much off. One minute you think you're doing just fine and then boom: they're too short. And it's not a good look.
So as Kristin points out, just let the professionals do it.
"Never, ever, ever trim your own eyebrows," she said.
The second rule is a little less blunt.
Kristin explained that while it's not bad to tweeze your eyebrows yourself, most people don't know where to remove the hair. So they can end up going a little mad and taking too much off.
