Queen Bee founder Jodi Shays shares her Tweezer advice with the Huffington Post
Jodi Shays, a professional waxer and owner of Queen Bee salons and spas in Washington, California and Texas, said that in order for a pair of tweezers to meet her professional standards, they should be constructed from stainless steel or titanium (the latter being the most rust-proof of the two).
“We need tweezers that have a great ‘tension’ and ‘spring’ to them,” Shays wrote to me. “That means when you put them between your fingers, you can feel a good ‘bounce.’”
Shays said this tension is what allows you to grasp a hair more effectively, without breaking it or causing trauma to the surrounding skin.
Shays, who recently designed her own tweezers ($28.95 at her store), said that she loves tweezers made by Rubis Switzerland, a Swiss beauty tool company that thoughtfully crafts many of their cosmetic instruments from surgical steel.
