Growing Back Overplucked Eyebrows
According to The New York Times, we’ve all become so tweezer-happy that no longer are too-full, Brooke Shields-style brows a beauty problem. Now, apparently, the issue is overplucking–and inspired by strong brows on sexy celebrities like Megan Fox, women are turning to brow experts and high-tech solutions to help coax their vanished, skinny-minnie arches back to life.
Brow guru Anastasia Soare cautions against following celebrity brow trends, instead aiming for an ideal shape based on bone structure and offering kits designed to help achieve the perfect arch right for your own face.
The article quotes Sephora makeup artist Sherlyn Mousaurieta, who says, “I would say 7 out 10 clients that come in have either overplucked or simply don’t have as much brow hair as they’d like…They desire to fill the brow in.” Saviors come in the form of brow powders and pencils, lash conditioners, growth products like Latisse, and even hair transplant surgery. (Confession: we fall in the anorexic brow category, and use Latisse nightly to help fill in our own wispy brows. So far, so good!)
What do you think? Have you struggled with your own too thin arches…and would you turn to something as drastic as hair transplant surgery to fix them?
