Pointed tip tweezers are ideal for precision tweezing, pulling out individual fine, tiny or ingrown hairs. These tweezers require good hand-eye coordination and a steady hand and deliver professional detailed results, which can be intimidating, but it is a lot easier than you think. 

Whether you’re a lash artist, facialist, waxer, makeup artist, or microblading/pmu tech - having good tweezers in your tool kit is essential for when you need to clean up your client for a service or take detailed photos and videos.

And of course you can tweeze like a pro from home! Slant Tip Tweezers are best when you need speed and for removing multiple hairs at a time but Pointed Tip tweezers work best on individual hairs and have less risk of breaking the hairs in half leaving behind little nubs.

How To Use A Point Tip Tweezer:

  1. Eye on the prize - you need to focus on your target with these tweezers instead of shovelling up groups of hairs as you would with slanted tweezers.
  2. Approach the hair from an angle and pull close to the root. Don’t try to come above the hair with the very point of the tweezer, think of it as your “pinching” and pulling the hairs away.
  3. Slow and steady, remember one hair at a time. Pointed tweezers are best for great precision not speed.
  4. Pull with the direction of hair growth to avoid breakage for crisp clean long lasting results.

Pointed Tip tweezers are the main tweezers I’ve been using on my clients for years. These tweezers grab the unwanted hairs at the first attempt, are durable, and keep their original performance for a very long time. ArteStile tweezers are sharpened and crafted to perfection with perfectly aligned tips. They’re truly worth every penny and made of high quality stainless steel ideal for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin.
