Here are some really great tweezers....they are the Japonesque Fruit Patterned Artisan Slant Tweezer ($20).
I have the pair pictured (tooty fruity) and I really like them. They have pretty good weight to them and they pull each stray hair completely out...root and all. I don't know if I have gotten better at tweezing or these are just really good, but it seems to be less painful with these. Maybe it's easier to get them at the right angle for pain-free tweezing. It also seems to be easier to get up close to the brow to pull the baby strays.
There are several new designs and also several colors to choose from. And it probably should be noted that each pair is hand made in Milan, Italy - it's quite a process to get one pair of tweezers. When you purchase a pair, they have free reconditioning for the life of the tweezers.
Precision-crafted* for perfect balance and alignment, these stylish new tweezers are the ideal choice for eliminating stray hairs. Featuring a colorful menagerie of delightful fruits designs and made of brushed stainless steel, the Fruit Tweezer is finished with a deep, rich enamel coating for a great in-hand feel. Constructed with a hand-filed precision tip, each Japonesque Tweezer is designed for flawless extraction and expert hair removal. Use tweezer point for smaller hairs, while the slanted side is ideal for general tweezing. Either way, the end result is perfectly groomed brows.
