What type of tweezers should I buy?

Many times buying cosmetic products is an odyssey if we do not have the basic knowledge to know what type of item we want to buy or if they have not advised us before. A clear example is when you think about buying plucking tweezers. Can surely become an unlived if you arrive at a store and they ask you the key question: What kind of tweezers do you want? At that moment you go blank and with hardly any time to answer that you have no idea, they keep asking you…. Flat, straight, fine point, oblique? Well, so that this does not happen to you again, today I am going to help you choose tweezers to pluck.

You will agree with me, that the tweezers are a basic in any self-respecting toiletry bag, since they help us to get rid of unsightly annoying hair quickly, effectively and cleanly. With a little pull we make it disappear from the roots. But… What models of tweezers can we find on the market?

3 basic models of tweezers

  1. Fine point tweezers: They help us to pull out the hairs that have just been born, those that are tiny and hardly visible.
  2. Straight nose tweezers: They are more precise and pull out the hairs that are more encyst. Within this type of straight-tipped tweezers, we find two varieties. Flat or crab tip. Those of Flat tip they are for more complicated hairs, which are longer. And the crab, will help us to specify more with short hairs.
  3. Diagonal Tip Tweezers: They are perfect for long hairs like those of the eyebrows. They allow the hairs to be removed one by one, forgetting about pinching and pulling
    We can also find them with a smooth or rough body, which helps us so that the clamp does not slip and we can hold it more easily.

Now that you know the types of tweezers there are, you just have to think about which is the most suitable for the type of hair you have, I have to tell you that we can also find tweezers made of various metals. The most common are nickel and stainless steel. I prefer the first, since although they are a little more expensive, are more durable than stainless steelThese are made of soft steel and are easily deformed. Inside the caliper body, this can also be two types, smooth or rough. To familiarize yourself with the tweezers, It is preferable that you buy it rough so that you prevent the clamp from slipping fingers.

To take care of the tweezers, and that they are always perfect, clean them after each use with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol so that the remains of hair disappear, and once they are clean, store them somewhere where they won't get squashed or warped and you always have them perfect.
