Here is your step-by-step guide on how to do an eyebrow slit at home.

Step 1: Decide what type of eyebrow slit design you want 

The first, and most important, step of this process is to decide where to put an eyebrow slit. You need to consider several factors before deciding on which type of slit will suit you and where you should put them. 

1.1 Factors to consider before selecting the eyebrow slit design 

  • You should consider the thickness of your eyebrow before deciding on the design. The thicker the eyebrow, the better it will look. However, you can always fill in your brows to redefine your brows. 
  • The arc of your natural eyebrow can accentuate the beauty of your eyebrow slit. Following your natural eyebrow line helps you achieve a natural and finer finish. 
  • The shape of your face can help you decide which eyebrow slit will suit you. 

1.2 Types of eyebrow slits 

There is no right or wrong way to put a cut on your eyebrow. You can opt for any of the below types of shaved eyebrow lines on either one or both eyebrows, whatever fits your style. 

  • Single slit: Put a single slit on your eyebrow, preferably near the tail of your eyebrow. 
  • Double slit: Put two slits on your eyebrow. You can put them side by side with little space between them. 
  • Multiple slits: You can put more than one slit in your eyebrow for a more edgy and captivating look. 
  • Zig zag slit: If you have thicker brows, you can create a zig-zag pattern on the brow. The thickness of this slit will be slimmer than the others.  
  • Angled slit: You can create a horizontal V shape (< or >) on your eyebrow for a more refined look. 
  • Cris-cross slit: You can create a cross (X) pattern on your eyebrow. 
  • Fishtail slit: You can cut an eyebrow with a slant angle and extend one part on your forehead to create a fishtail-like structure. 
  • Star slit: You can create a star shape on your eyebrows and shave the hair of that area. 
  • Slit with haircut joining: It is one of the popular styles where you create an eyebrow line such that its shape is extended on the side of your head and cut the line to create an illusion. 

You can use your creative flair to make unique eyebrow line designs that express your persona.
