Follow your natural brow line, and just tweeze the stragglers. What I do, to be safe, is just pluck a few hairs per day, until I see how it looks. You can always pluck more the next day, but you can't put them back on if you've plucked too many. ;) As a general rule, don't pluck the top of the brow unless there are hairs that aren't in line with the rest of the brow. It's best to pluck hairs underneath it. Plucking from the top can give you a permanent frown. Also, putting ice on the skin before plucking can help reduce the ouch factor.

I would pay to have them waxed the 1st time, then keep up with the tweezing. A cosmetologist will professionally shape to compliment your features and structure.

Here's a picture of line guides to follow. Do not pluck any further inside of the two exterior lines and only pluck the strays under the brow areas (the arch middle line). If it's hard for you to visualize by eyeballing you can use a pencil or chopstick, etc as a visual guideline. Our brows are unique to all of us and fit us perfectly so just this simple cleanup works perfectly. :-)

Do yourself a favor and go get a professional wax job just once, and then maintain by plucking. You will be doing yourself a favor in the long run, and the investment is invaluable to your self assurance!
