How-To: Trim Men's Eyebrows

Try this simple trick next time you trim your eyebrows or a guest in your salon. 

Use a Sam Villa Artist Series Detail Comb in a contrasting color to clearly see the fine hair that needs to be cut and a Sam Villa Signature Series 5.5" Swivel Shear to enable more freedom with hand position.

1. With the fine teeth of the comb, rake hair upwards 2-3 times to stretch the longer hair to its fullest, and then trim any hair that goes past the outline of the brow.
