Round face:

To compliment a curvy face, we will set hard angles into your brows. Hard angles will make the face appear longer.
The perfect shape: Hard angled.

Oval Face:

You are the lucky ones. With this face shape, you can pretty much guarantee any look will look good on you. With our oval-face clients, we like to follow the natural arch of their brows and emphasise their natural arch.
The perfect shape: Soft angled eyebrows.


Heart shaped face:

It may sound cute and easy but as heart-shaped faced people would know it is incredibly difficult to shape the perfect brows for this face shape. A heart-shaped face means the eye is already drawn to the top of the face, the forehead, and the eyes. We suggest soft angled shaped arches. Also less is more when it comes to tinting you want to keep the look natural.
The perfect shape: Rounded


Long Face:

To compliment vertical length, we focus on the horizontal. It doesn’t matter if your arches are strong, angular or flat we need to ensure length from left to right.
The perfect shape: Flat


Square Face:

With a square face we recommend you go thick and have a nice strong arch. Giving extra curve will soften the hard angles of the face. We also recommend darkening the brow to give your brows wow factor and draw the eyes away from the angular structure of the face and onto the eyes through the emphasis from the eyebrows.
The perfect shape: “s” shaped
