WHAT MAKES GOOD QUALITY TWEEZERS
Quality is the most important factor you need to consider when buying eyebrow tweezers.
Quality defines how the tweezers will perform and how long they will last. Traditionally, eyebrow tweezers made from fine stainless steel crown the list because they are more durable and can be kept in humid environment, e.g. bathroom. However, not all stainless steel tweezers are the same.
World leading manufactures like Niegeloh Solingen, have been mastering the art of producing professional eyebrow tweezers with impeccable quality since 1936. By using only the finest German stainless steel, the tips keep sharpness for a very long time, allowing you to grab unwanted hairs at the first attempt. For added benefit, Niegeloh's TOPINOX line represents the best possible stainless steel approved for decades in surgical instruments without harmful elements (i.e. nickel), so it is perfect for those with sensitive skin.
The process of crafting tweezers for eyebrow shaping involves multiple-step detailing and honing of the edges. Niegeloh uses world-renown Solingen traditions and sophisticated technologies, to produce professional quality eyebrow tweezers with perfectly aligned tips - sharpened to perfection - and non-slip handles, to give you maximum control when manoeuvring around the sensitive eye area.
These tweezers grab the unwanted hairs at the first attempt, without missing, and keep their original performance for a very long time. Niegeloh artisans manually test each pair of tweezers to ensure the tips meet up precisely, to guarantee excellent accuracy and durability.
SIX TYPES OF TWEEZERS

1 - Pointed Tweezers
Advantages: The pointed tip is ideal for precision tweezing, pulling out individual fine hairs or ingrown hairs.

3 - Slant Tweezers
Advantages: Slant tweezers are the most versatile style and allow you to pull the hair out of its root, as well as reach for a specific hair.
4 - Claw Tweezers
Advantages: Claw tweezers allow you to remove difficult reach hairs and pluck hair close to your skin without piercing it.

Hans Kniebes Solingen Rounded Tweezers are an ideal choice for people with diabetes, thanks to safely ground tips and hypoallergic stainless steel – that can be sterilised as frequently as needed.
