Resurrect over-tweezed brows
These days it's all about Cara Delevingne and Lily Collins and their bushy brows, but there was a time when super-thin eyebrows were all the rage. If you plucked yours back then and are now struggling to get them back, all is not lost - we have the ultimate guide to bringing your brows back up to date.
If you want to keep things simple, you can try filling them in with a brow pencil or pen. Silk Fibre Brow Enhancer by Silk Oil of Morocco latches on to even the shortest hairs, filling gaps and creating the illusion of thick brows.
The benefit of using a pen like this is that you can achieve the look quickly and transform your sparse brows in just seconds. It's also extremely easy to do; you won't need an expert or friend on hand to guide you.
You could also give WunderBrow from Wunder2 (wunder2.co.uk) a go. It's an exclusive hair fibre complex that uses PermaFix Technology to provide the perfect brow in seconds. It's smudge-, water- and transfer-proof and lasts for days. Best of all: it looks totally natural.
"The product creates a very subtle look, as opposed to pencils which I often find are very harsh with lines which stand out from your natural brow and can be very obvious," make-up artist Cat Crawford explained. "Whenever I’ve used a pencil previously I have always had to blend, something which many people overlook. I haven’t had to worry about this since using WunderBrow myself and with clients. WunderBrow gives a much softer feel!"
If you're after more than just a quick fix you could try a product that encourages hair re-growth. There are plenty on the market with ingredients that nourish and promise bushier brows after a certain amount of use. RapidBrow uses the exclusive Hexatein™ 2 Complex, a unique blend of fortifying proteins, stimulating peptides and nourishing ingredients designed to help condition, restore, and repair the appearance of eyebrows as quickly as in 60 days.
Those looking for something even more permanent could try the PRP Brow Treatment from Absolute Aesthetics. It's like a hair transplant but far less invasive. So how does it work?
"The injection of PRP is a technique using the body’s own blood to heal itself. PRP technique stimulates dormant hair follicles and encourages them to start growing and multiplying the cells that form the structure directly below the hair follicle. In turn, this increases the survival of the hair follicle cells, prolonging the active growth phase of hair follicles in the brow area," Victoria Smith, Director of Absolute Aesthetics / Aesthetics Practitioner, explained to Cover Media.
Patients are placed under a local anaesthetic, so treatment should be comfortable. The area may be a little sensitive after, but aftercare is provided.
It's also great news that most people only require one PRP treatment, although it's always possible that certain patients need to repeat the procedure.
Whichever method you end up going for: sparse eyebrows will be a thing of the past in no time!
