If you feel that your hairline is too thick, use a pair tweezers to pull out your hair strands from behind the hairline.
Pull out one strand at a time.

Pull the strands out from random rows in every section.
After every few strands, put your tweezers down and see if your hairline is improving.
When its gone , its gone!!!
