Form & Function: Give the Gift of Perfect Tweezers

Form & Function: Give the Gift of Perfect Tweezers

If you're not convinced that there’s value in a high-quality pair of tweezers, go ahead and ask any aesthetician what they have in their beauty bag. In addition to a funny look, you’ll get the truth — good tweezers always make the cut. That’s because aestheticians are trained on the importance of removing each hair from the root without damage — and they don’t have time to waste on inefficient, poorly-crafted tools.

And think about it in your own life. Have you ever experienced the massive frustration of trying to remove a hair that slips out of your tweezers’ grasp? Have you ever felt like you’re playing a clumsy game of Operation on your own face?

In all seriousness, a pair of high-quality tweezers is a long-term, non-negotiable beauty investment. If you’re looking for the perfect gift of form and function for that beauty-conscious person in your life, take a look at what goes into the World's Best Tweezers by Regine Switzerland (and you might just wind up buying a pair for yourself).

1.  Form: materials and precision matter

When it comes to most investments, we know that quality matters. A Rolex is different from a drugstore-brand watch, and a Porsche is in a class of its own. So, what sets quality, luxury items apart from their lesser counterparts? In most cases, it’s a combination of top-of-the-line materials and expert craftsmanship. Let's take a look at what sets quality tweezers apart.

Material: double tempered steel

Tweezers have been a part of human life since the Bronze Age in the form of malleable metals like bronze. Luckily, we’ve come a long way since 3000 B.C., and high-quality tweezers are now generally made of surgical-grade stainless steel.

  • Tempering. Not all stainless steel tweezers are created equal. Let’s get technical for a minute, and talk about how the tempering process fortifies metal. When stainless steel is tempered, this means it’s heated to a very high temperature (but not quite to melting) and then cooled down. This process makes the steel more durable.
  • Double Tempering. Now, what if you take it a step further and double-temper that steel? By taking the steel up to a high temperature twice, you significantly increase the steel’s strength. Twice-tempered steel is incredibly strong, resists rust, and will never dull. You heard that right: if you have high-quality tweezers, you never have to sharpen them.

2.  Precision craftsmanship

  • Handcrafted.  Now, it’s obviously not enough to twice-temper steel, but they must be handcrafted as well. You have to take it to the next level of expertise and precisely shape each pair. That’s because when it comes to expertly remove unwanted hair on your body, even the slightest deviation from where the tips of the tweezers connect is going to create an issue.

    The World’s Best Tweezers by Regine are handcrafted in Switzerland, where they receive individual attention in a 40-step process that ensures each pair is balanced, precise, and perfect. We produce the same tweezers that are used for medical and scientific purposes, so the process is careful and meticulous with every detail.
  • Well designed. In addition to using surgical-grade steel and handcrafted attention, these luxury tweezers are designed with hair removal specifically in mind. This may sound simple but is actually very complex.

    For example, each set has specialized etching on the inside of the slanted tip to catch unwanted hairs with zero effort. And each is created at an exact 25-degree angle to conform to your unique needs. Regine Tweezers are examined under a microscope by Swiss crafters to ensure perfection at the most minute levels.

Function: Quality Tweezers Need to Get the Job Done

So, what’s the point of all this talk about handcrafted quality and twice-tempered steel? Basically, the emphasis on quality materials and handcrafted techniques translates into the most functional pair of tweezers you'll ever use. To illustrate this, let’s take a look at some of your most common plucking woes:

  • Slipping hair. Words cannot describe the frustration of trying to get dull, poor-quality tweezers to grip an unwanted hair. Over and over again, the hair slips out of your grasp, and the cycle starts over again. Unfortunately, this is definitely a familiar scenario to anyone who has ever tweezed with a sub-par pair of tweezers.

    Our Solution: The reason the World’s Best Tweezers grip every hair, every time, is that they’re each etched on the tip. This grittiness creates a rough surface that more effectively grabs the hair and keeps it gripped.
  • Breaking hair. If there’s anything more frustrating than an unwanted hair perpetually slipping through your tweezers’ grasp, it’s when you finally grab a hair — only to have it break off halfway through. Now, you’re doing twice the work, and possibly creating a hair so small your dull tweezers can’t even grasp it the next time you go for it.

    Our Solution: Our high-quality tweezers allow you to get a good grip on the follicle, allowing you to pull the hair straight out and clean. This way, you won’t tear the hair halfway through (and drive yourself crazy).
  • Incomplete hair removal. Every beauty expert knows the horrors of an improperly tweezed hair. If the individual hair isn’t removed entirely during the removal process, a small piece of hair can stay below the surface of the skin. When this broken fragment grows in, there’s a greater chance of it developing into an unsightly and painful ingrown hair.

    Our Solution: You’re not going to have this problem with quality tweezers — in part because each pair is designed so that the tips come together perfectly to make a perfect grip. Therefore, the tweezers come together perfectly to grab that hair — and pull it out all the way from the roots.
  • Pulling or missing hair. With bad tweezers, it can actually feel like you’re yanking on the skin underneath the hair follicle as you pull. Or, they can be so dull that you miss the hair altogether. By the time you’re done, your hands are sweaty from battling with your tweezers, your skin is red from the constant irritation, and you’re about to give up on your brows for good.

    Our Solution: With these Regine Tweezers, the superior balance, tension, and perfect 25-degree angle of the tip mean that they’re able to grasp even the finest hairs on your skin — even those you didn't know you had. It also means that you’ll pull out each hair cleanly without tugging on the skin underneath.
