For a round face, you have to make your face look longer.Create high arched eyebrows. If you don’t like sharp arch, then opt for soft arch shape. Avoid round eyebrow shape. It will make your face more round.
You can pick a slight arch to add more dimension to your face but no matter what do not pick dramatic eyebrow shapes. You already have nice a sharpened out features, this only make the face look more sharp and honestly, it will not be a pretty sight at all!
Squared faced beauties have a square jaw which is a very strong feature. Your jaw and forehead are at the same distance making you seem squarish. You need to adopt a look that will soften your look and even elongate the look of your features a little if your looking for a more feminine look. Try a rounder shape or a low soft arch with medium thickness. You don’t want to go too thin or too thick with this face shape. This will tone down your otherwise strong features.
Heart shaped face:
In heart-shaped face shape, you have a pointed chin. So in order to soften that look, go for a round brow shape. A low arch round brow will give you a natural look, but if you have a shorter heart face shape, then ask your beautician to give your brows a sharp arch.

Popular Techniques for eyebrow grooming
Threading and tweezing are two commonly used techniques to groom eyebrows. Professional from all across the world employ either one or a mixture of both depending on the requirement when it comes to grooming.
Eye Brow Threading:
Threading is done using a special thread which removes the unwanted hair around the brow from the root for a very clean and perfect look. Professionals at any salon can help you with any eyebrow shape with threading.
Eye Brow Tweezing:
This is done using a special instrument called the tweezer that manually grabs each hair and pulls them from the roots. This process can be done in the comfort of your home. Ideal if you have a strand or two sticking out in between your regular parlor visits.
Additional Tips for Better Eye Brows:
- Thread or tweeze after having a shower. The warm water during the shower will open up the pores making it less painful and easy to remove all the hair.
