Okay, so I made the HUGE mistake of not going to my regular stylist to get my eyebrows waxed. She was out of town, but the salon assured me that the person they recommended did a "wonderful" job. So I went to her.
Let me preface this by saying I have naturally full eyebrows, which I love, but I like to have a nice arch to them to make them look a little more polished and clean. This woman broke all the beauty rules by waxing ABOVE the eyebrow (you’re never supposed to do this, as it makes the eyebrow look very fake). For whatever reason, she also felt it was necessary to trim my eyebrows with a comb and scissors. Yes, I realize I should’ve spoke up and I was far too trusting.. But I was just staring in the mirror with tears in my eyes, wondering why I didn’t just wait for my stylist to be back in town.
My eyebrows look thin and very unattractive. And I’m in a panic because with my wedding in three months, I’m worried I won’t be able to get them back to their natural fullness.
Anyone have any experience with this?? Please tell me the honest truth. I’m so worried that the natural fullness won’t return in that amount of time.
And to all other brides-to-be, let this be a word of warning – clearly tell any stylist unfamilar with your style EXACTLY what you want.

I normally pluck my eyebrows and I too keep my full…I usually have to pluck every 3 weeks or so to keep my arch. I think they will be back to where you like them in two months and then you go to your stylist a week before the wedding and get them touched up! Don’t worry…they will grow back faster than you think!

Do you have an eyebrow kit? With powder, a brush and/or pencil? Keep them combed and fill them in as they grow…go back to your stylist ASAP and see what she has to say. Good luck!

I’ve also had a similiar experience of over waxing/tweezing and was horrified with the results. Luckily my brows grew back into their natural fullness after a month.

Three months is plenty of time for your eyebrows to grow back. I agree with Sparkle, use some make-up to fill them in, until you go back to your stylist.

I am a professional makeup artist and I can tell you that if it’s a wax job, it will grow back a little by three months (so breathe!). If you want, you can always get Nutrilash (http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/2900719?Category=&Search=True&SearchType=keywordsearch&keyword=brow+in+All+Categories&origin=searchresults)
Few of my past brides used this product and from their original trial to the wedding day, I saw a difference.
Good luck and don’t stress!

3 months? If you have full eyebrows naturally, they’ll be grown in by then, plus some! Don’t worry.

Just let them grow. Its should be much better in three months. I have had the ssame experience. Just not close to my weddding.

Ok. Breathe and relax. This can be fixed!
I have a kit I got at Sephora. Also have it at Ulta stores. It’s by Anastasia of beverly hills. It has eyebrow powder to fill in sparse brows, a wax to brush on to keep them in place, and a highlighter to go under the brow line to show off a shapely brow.
This kit is a godsend in case the waxing is a bit much. I had this issue happen several months back..thank goodness for this kit!
