Brows are subject to as many beauty trends as the way you draw your eyeliner. Whether you wear them brushed up and fluffy or trim and tame, grooming is part of the process. Of course, you could leave the shaping to the professionals and get them waxed or threaded to perfection, but a good ol’ set of tweezers will do the trick, too. You just have to know how to use them.
At the risk of sounding cliche, the first set of eyebrows that caught our collective attention (other than our own unruly pairs) were model Cara Delevingne’s natural set. TBH, they’re still our browspiration: bold, beautiful and unashamedly bushy. But here’s the thing: even if you prefer to let your brows run wild, there’s always one or two little hairs that go rogue and need a swift plucking. Even Chalamet brows (yes, Chalamet as in Timothée) require some level of grooming, while pared-back brows demand your undivided attention to keep them (literally) in line.
With a good pair of tweezers, you never have to leave the house to tame stubborn strays or combat rapid growth. These are the best pairs on to help you get and sustain the style you prefer.

1. Tweezerman Slant Tweezer
You might be shocked to hear that a tweezer brand has a cult following, but plucking is serious business. If you want the best of the best, Tweezerman is your guy. The stainless steel tip slants 25 degrees for a professional pluck working against the brow bone and features hand-filed tips to ensure optimal precision. The tweezer also comes in a variety of colors like bright pink and fire engine red, so it’ll always stand out in your medicine cabinet or tote bag.
2. Tweezer Guru Slant Tip Tweezer
Tweezers are one of those beauty tools that all look eerily similar, but in reality, aren’t made equally. Take Tweezer Guru’s slanted tip tool, for example: The professional instrument is made with stainless steel and boasts an incredibly firm grip. It also removes hair with the utmost precision with just one pluck, so be careful where you aim.
3. Majestic Bombay Surgical Tweezers
Don’t be intimidated by Majestic Bombay’s surgical tweezers—they aren’t as scary as they look. While the extremely pointy tips definitely give off more of a medical feel, these tweezers are among the best beauty tools you’ll find on the market. From pesky eyebrow hairs sticking out in random places to ingrown hairs and splinters deeply embedded under the skin, this pair removes anything and everything in one swift pluck.
4. Revlon Expert Slant Tip Tweezer
This tweezer allows you to be very precise, thanks to the optimized tension and angled stainless steel tip. The handles are even non-slip, so tweezing can be as painless as possible. Reviewers do note that they are very sharp, so exercise caution in using them.
5. Refine Wide Slant Tip Grip Tweezers
With the combination of this vertical slant angle and the extra wide grip, you’ll get a lot of control over your tweezing. These tweezers allow you to use a regular pinch, instead of an assisted grip pinch. The former is less work for your hands.
