Straight end

Straight or square-tipped forceps are the most common and can be found easily. In addition to the more affordable price, it is very practical in handling and great for removing medium and long hair.

Diagonal tip

The diagonal tip tweezers have a tilt at the tip of the blade to delineate the shape of the eyebrows by removing medium and short hairs at the root. Its handling is easy, practical and has great accuracy.

Thin tip

The fine-tipped scalpel or scalpel-tipped tweezers, as it is also known, is ideal for drawing delicate eyebrow shapes and removing shorter and thinner hairs. Because it requires some skill in handling, this type of tweezers is ideal for use by professionals with practice.

With light
