We help you find the right tweezers for you
Here’s a fun fact: not all tweezers are the same. I know, it sounds crazy, right? Surely a tool that has been designed to pluck hair will do so no matter what its shape, colour, size, or angle of slant?
Well, that is kind of true. All tweezers will pluck those stray hairs, but the different designs of them will actually enable them to offer different benefits to different people.
THE ALL-ROUNDER TWEEZERS
All-rounder tweezers are easily identified by their angled tip and sharp edges and are technically called slant tweezers. The pointed tip at the top means that you can grab each individual hair that needs removing without breaking into a sweat, while the straight edge will help you get really close to your skin to remove stray hairs right from the root. It’s no wonder this is the most popular design of tweezers – it suits all hair-plucking needs. Just be aware that slant tweezers may not be so effective on ingrown hairs.
THE POINTED PRECISION TWEEZERS
Looking to get rid of those teeny-tiny brow hairs or even some pesky ingrown hairs on your legs? Then a pair of pointed tweezers will be your tool of choice. The fine-tip point (which is very sharp, so take things slowly when plucking) makes plucking those short, fine, stubborn and ingrown hairs a breeze. Added bonus: this design also works wonders on removing splinters.
THE MAXIMUM-EFFICIENCY TWEEZERS
Tweezers with a square or flat shape are ideal for removing multiple strands of hair at one time (so they’re not so good with precision work). They’re the kind of tweezers you’d use if your brows were really overgrown and you could afford to remove a few strands at once, and are perfect for removing coarse hairs like chin or mole hair.
THE SKIN-FRIENDLY TWEEZERS
Some people have sensitive skin and they don’t respond so well to the metal in most tweezers. So should this mean that they have to live a life of waxing or (gasp!) overgrown hair? Nope, not at all. This is where gold-tipped tweezers come in. Tweezers with tips coated in 24K gold and made from the finest-quality stainless steel will ensure those who suffer from allergies or skin sensitivities can remove their hair without having a reaction.
THE FAIR-HAIR TWEEZERS
Those with blonde or very fair brow hair may find their hair gets lost against the silver (or even gold) tip of regular tweezers, which makes it pretty hard to pluck and groom your brows like a pro. The solution? Enter matte black tweezers – the tool that will help those with even the fairest of hair locate and pluck those strays, thanks to the visibility the dark hue offers.
THE SCISSOR TWEEZERS
Behold! The tweezers that don’t look like tweezers at all. But don’t be alarmed that they look like the scissors’ weird younger cousin – they’ll still work a treat to groom your brows without feeling like you’re going to stab yourself in the eye. Hold these like you would regular scissors to pluck out all those stray and stubborn hairs when you’re wearing glasses. The design helps you get in and behind your frames without making you feel like you have to sacrifice your vision to have perfect brows.
