Deep down, we all want beautiful brows, right?
The trend of taking great care of your eyebrows has stuck around recently, and according to Harper’s Bazaar, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
The debate on what’s the best method for eyebrow maintenance still lingers, but this eyebrow expert, as featured in Bustle says, hands down, threading over waxing.
