Learn Eyebrow Waxing the Professional Way

Our eyebrows are important facial features. They are the frames of the face and help to highlight an individual’s natural facial structure. Changing the shape of your eyebrows can drastically transform the overall look of your face. Eyebrow waxing can lift the eye area, enhance a person’s natural features, and give them a more youthful appearance.

HICI Go is a learning resource that offers in-person training, online courses, and live webinars. Our eyebrow and eyelash courses are ideal for beauty enthusiasts who want to learn how to wax and shape eyebrows. Here, we discuss the importance of eyebrow shaping and detail what our eyebrow waxing course entails.

Choosing the Perfect Eyebrow Shape

A person’s eyebrows help them to express emotions. The shape of the eyebrow is important because it can add flair to a person’s look and affect the shape of their face. Because every individual’s face is unique, the shape of their eyebrows should be, too.

As a beauty professional specializing in eyebrow waxing and shaping, it’s essential to identify and explain to clients their ideal eyebrow shape for their facial structure. The first step to providing your clients with a stunning eyebrow look is to determine the shape of their faces. Different face shapes include:


A round face shape is best identified by a soft, curved chin. Round faces are typically as wide as they are long, with the cheekbones being the widest part of the face.

Rounded eyebrows will only make this face shape appear even rounder. When working with clients with rounded faces, you will want to shape their eyebrows in a way that creates the illusion that the face is less circular. Adding height to a client’s brows at the arch and contouring the angle will help lengthen the appearance of your client’s face.


Oval faces are well-balanced, with a forehead that is not much wider than the chin. People with an oval face will have a soft chin and a slight curve to the sides of the face.

Most brow styles will suit clients with an oval-shaped face. For the most flattering-looking brows, beauty professionals should keep characteristics soft to reflect the natural features of an oval face. That entails soft angles and shallow arches.


Strength and definition are often associated with square face shapes. People with this facial structure tend to have straight sides of the face and a desirable angular jawline.

Angular eyebrows help to keep the natural shape of a square face. Clients with a square face may prefer eyebrows that elongate the face. Lifted arches and lengthened tails work to achieve this look. Other clients who wish to emphasize their square face shape may opt for a flat brow.


A long, oblong, or rectangle-looking face has similar characteristics to a square face. A person’s forehead, cheeks, and jawline will be similar in width, with little curvature to the chin.

Eyebrows that are too close together will make a long face shape appear even longer. To create flattering brows for clients with longer-looking faces, keep them far apart at the front to give the illusion of a wider forehead.


Clients with a heart-shaped face have a wider forehead and a narrow, pointed chin. Beauty professionals should work to achieve a brow shape that makes the client’s forehead appear smaller and softens the chin.

Rounded brows are ideal for clients with a heart-shaped face, as they emphasize the natural curves of this face shape well. It’s best to keep the brows shorter in length and close together to draw attention to the middle of the face.


Clients with a pear-shaped face will display a defined jawline that tapers up to the hairline. Beauty professionals working with clients with pear-shaped faces should stay away from brows that are too short or flat, as they will contradict the natural beauty of this facial structure. Eyebrows that are longer and arched will be the most flattering for this face shape.
