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 Chamalet brows (yes, Chamalet as in Timothee) 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.

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.
