Keep on parting going further and further towards the back, please attention you guys, never over plucking, because there is a line between over plucking and making frontal look natural. If you pluck too much in one spot you will get bald spots, ensure you are plucking and moving in different places. Be gentle, do your best to avoid this bad situation happens. Taking a really good tweezer, this is important, the tweezer must to be really good nice and sharp. If it is dull, you are going to be plucking away for like hour.
