DIY 5 Minutes to Perfect Eyebrows using a Korean Shaver

How do Koreans shape their own eyebrows at home? I walk down the streets and find everyone with such perfect and nice looking eyebrows, and it just amazes me every single time. Therefore, I decided to do some research and here are some pictures I found alongside with a tutorial from a blogger named Deum Ah (듬아) from Naver.

Step 1

Before and after. Take a look at the different shapes of these two eyebrows.

Step 2

Before shaping your eyebrows. Notice how it is thin and has some empty spaces in between.

Step 3

Take your eyeliner or brow pencil to draw in the shape (of your preference) before trimming.

Step 4

This is a guide to shaping your eyebrows without making a terrible mistake.

Step 5

There are 3 ways to shape your eyebrows – eyebrow razor, waxing and tweezers. However, waxing is difficult to do on your own, so here we will demonstrate how you can use the eyebrow razor and tweezers to shape your eyebrows at home.

Step 6

Be sure to carefully remove ALL hair highlighted in the region below.

Step 7

Use the tweezers to pull out any hair that still remains above the line.

Step 8

Do the same for the bottom of your eyebrows. Most people tend to trim their eyebrows using the razor going from top to bottom. However, I prefer moving the razor from right to left or left to right depending on the direction of how the hair is growing (always go from the opposite).

Step 9

The physiognomy of Korean eyebrows tells you that cutting the inner & front part of your eyebrows is not always good for you. However, I trim mine to make it look nicer.

Step 10

Now, this completes the overall look of your eyebrows.

Step 11

Step 12

Use a screw/eyebrow brush to comb the hair in a downward motion, and you will see where it is uneven (which you will have to cut to make it even).

Step 13

You can use the eyebrow razor to cut the uneven hair.

Step 14

Woohoo! You did it! What do you think?
