Brow Care for Men: Your Questions Answered + Our Recommended Services for Male Clients
A question we often get is: do men really need brow services? The answer is yes!
One myth we’d like to clear up is that brow shaping and styling services are just for women. In actual fact, men can benefit just as much from brow services, which can help to tame unruly growth, make the eyebrows appear more striking, and achieve an impeccably-groomed look.
Treatments such as waxing, tinting and cosmetic tattooing can help to fill in the browline for men who struggle with sparse or thinning brows, giving them a more masculine and kept appearance. Additionally, with a proper professional touch, results look completely natural and not overtly noticeable.

Are brow services painful?
Although waxing and cosmetic tattooing for the brows may entail some very minor discomfort, these services are non-invasive and your professional provider will take every measure to ensure that your treatment is as painless as possible.
For cosmetic tattooing at Eyebrow Ink Styling, numbing creams are applied prior and for waxing services, your brow artist will be well-trained on techniques that minimise stinging, irritation, and swelling.
Most clients report that professional brow shaping is still far less painful compared to traditional tattooing for the rest of the body. Although the technique and equipment are similar, cosmetic tattooing differs in that it uses a lighter touch and less-permanent ink.
Which brow services are most appropriate for male clients?
- Brow Waxing & Shaping – If you just need the basics, waxing your brows is a perfect option. This service entails defining the eyebrows using wax to remove out of place hairs and clean up the area in between. This helps to improve the overall shape of your existing brows, and make them look subtly sharper.
- Brow Tinting – For greying brows or brows that lack definition, adding a tint to your brow wax is a great add-on. Using a semi-permanent tint, your brow artist will create a perfect match to your natural colour, to fill in and darken the brows. Tinting can also enhance the look of your existing brows, making them appear fuller and more youthful.
- Cosmetic Tattooing for Brows – If your goal is always wanting well-groomed eyebrows, but you’re short on time to style them daily, you might also consider Cosmetic Tattooing or Microblading for your brows. These procedures entail temporarily filling in the shape of your brows using a tattooing device or pen to colour in the area with small, realistic looking hair strokes and shading. At your appointment, a skilled artist will utilise some of today’s most innovative techniques including microblading, ombre, powder shading, or some combination of these, to craft your ideal shape.
What will I need to do to maintain my results?
How often you need to visit will depend upon the service received as well as your individual skin and hair type. For regular grooming and styling with waxing and tinting, you should plan to visit every 4-8 weeks, for best results. Whereas, cosmetic tattooing and or microblading services will last much longer. Typically, semi-permanent treatments like microblading, ombre shading, and powder brows can last anywhere from a year to two years, only requiring the occasional touch-up.
