For brows and facial hair, salon threading has been a revolution. But unless you know what you’re doing, I wouldn’t recommend trying to shape your own eyebrows. There is, though, a brilliant new way of removing unwanted facial hair at home: the Tweezy (£10, www-old.victoriahealth.com).
This canny little device consists of a metal spring and a rubber grip handle so you can just twist off excess hair from the root-like threading. It’s incredibly effective and simple to use, and will save you a fortune in waxing.
