Why do some tweezers have square ends? A. It is easier to grasp a single hair with a pointed tip, making this tip more suitable for precision tweezing. Some women, however, prefer a wide end because they are afraid of poking themselves. Tweezers with angled heads can be used either way, depending upon the angle at which they are held. EFFECTS OF TWEEZING Q. Does plucking hairs make them grow back darker and coarser? A. Plucking has no effect on the color or texture of hair. If a hair breaks off on the surface, it may appear darker and coarser because of the "stubble" effect it gives. Also', if the hair is pulled against the direction in which it grows, the new hair may grow in crookedly, again giving a "stubble" effect. For a smooth, clean look, pluck hairs out in the direction in which they grow.
