Eyebrows are able to adjust the proportions of the face and bring harmony to the image as a whole. Knowing the importance of this natural “decoration” and having a bad experience of getting rid of excess hairs, many do not dare to correct their eyebrows themselves and most often turn to professionals. However, now the need to go to the beauty salon for the perfect design of eyebrows has disappeared. At least that's what the tiktokers say, offering an easy way to correct eyebrows with … masking tape! Spletnik talks more about this bizarre technique in a new article.
The essence of the trend
Today tiktok is not only an endless stream of funny videos, but also a whole storehouse of life hacks. Here you can find tons of tips for cleaning your home, organizing your space and cooking, and even your beauty routine.
So, over the past few weeks, a huge number of videos under the hashtag #tapebrows, which literally means “eyebrow taping”, have been viral in TikTok. In the video under this hashtag, the girls easily and at home carry out eyebrow correction using simple masking tape – and the result looks like they just left a professional eyebrow master. The videos are gaining millions of views, and people write in the comments that they have already tried this method on themselves and claim that it really works.
This technique is as simple as two and two. The trend is to use regular masking tape to correct the shape of the eyebrows. The edges of the tape create a perfectly straight line, along which you can easily get rid of excess hairs,

This method is somewhat similar to the already familiar waxing – wax depilation of eyebrows. However, with this technique, eyebrow masters use wax strips to help get rid of excess hair. The method, which is popular in tiktok, differs in that the masking tape in this case, on the contrary, protects the hairs that need to be preserved.
To try this method on yourself, first of all you need masking tape. Do not confuse it with the usual one: such tapes are usually too sticky and, on the contrary, can harm the eyebrows. Masking tape has a low degree of adhesion to surfaces, and in everyday life it is mainly used for painting in order to protect the required area. And this means that such a tape will not be able to pull out the hairs, but, on the contrary, will only protect the eyebrows.
Before starting the procedure, you should comb your eyebrows, and then slightly raise the hairs up. Next, you have to go to the most important step: choosing the correct angle of inclination, along which you need to glue the tape on the eyebrow. If you place the tape almost horizontally, the bend of the eyebrow will no longer turn out graceful and beautiful. If the slope is too steep, after correction, you risk becoming the owner of a shocked or always surprised look. It is better to glue the tape along the natural line of the browbone – this will make the brow bend more natural in the end. It is important to stick the tape on the right and left eyebrows at the same level so that the eyebrows are the same.

Now you need nail scissors or tweezers, with which you will need to carefully remove the hairs along the line of the tape. Having dealt with the large hairs, it is worth walking over the eyebrow with tweezers again to get rid of the small fluff. If necessary, the tape can be re-glued several times in order to shape the tail and the end of the eyebrow in the same way, as well as remove excess hairs under the arch. Now all that remains is to peel off the tape and enjoy the result!
Who is it suitable for
Before you run to the store for masking tape and immediately try this beauty hack from Tiktokers on yourself, you should weigh the pros and cons and understand whether this technique is right for you. So, star master Joey Healy does not recommend using this technique for those who prefer really fluffy eyebrows. Healy also advises against experimenting with scotch tape for those who are not yet very confident in their abilities and are poor at using tweezers.
A professional eyebrow shaper always evaluates the client's face and knows how to correctly calculate the proportions, taking into account the natural asymmetry. If you are not used to adjusting your eyebrows on your own, the tape method can be difficult for you, – warns against mistakes Joey Healy.
More than the rest, this beauty hack will surely be appreciated by those who have previously tried to shape their eyebrows using special stencils. Ready-made stencils are not suitable for everyone, because they do not take into account the individual characteristics of each person. In this case, masking tape, which can be glued at any angle, can just be an excellent alternative.
