- The second step is to create volume. As the edges are defined, use the same pencil to draw hair strikes. That will give the brow texture. The secret is to draw them with space between them, not to close to each other so that they will be more accented. This looks more natural.
- The next step in the process is the definition of the volume. For this, use a microfibre gel. It gives the look just as natural hair and adds to the volume. Brush the brows with this gel in the direction of growth.
- The last and finishing step is the setting. It gives the final look and results. For best results, use a brow setting gel. With only brushing the front section of the brow, you will achieve the cool boy’s look.
