As a terrible over plucker I vowed to have perfect brows for my wedding. I have been growing them out since December and my wedding is in May and progress has been good (but soooooo hard!) I basically had plucked them way too thin and too short and the worst bit has been increasing the length. They are growing but the hairs come straight out and stick out and nothing I do will make them lie flat!! Any suggestions?
I have been ging to a professional who has been helping in my quest for the perfecr brow. She has been threading but said she will not touch in between my eyebrows until the last appointment when she can see how much hair I have grown. Its this between my eyebrows hair that is growing out.
It looks sooooooo bad.
Anyone else going throught this hell lol!!

@pinkpetal:Oh my gosh that would drive me crazy, you have great self control!!!! I tweeze my own because it drives me crazy when they get bushy, I can’t even wait to make an appointment to get them waxed. Once they bother me I attack with my tweezers. I wish I had some advice for you, I admire your patience!

i worked on growing them out to create a better shape a few years ago, it SUCKED! if you have patches where they are over plucked & need to fill in, you can use rogain (SP??) to help them grow better. she won’t work on the unibrow??? that’s crazy! i can see not touching other areas, but why would you want to grow in the very middle? it’s not like you want to ‘shape’ the weird hairs that pop up in the middle of the two! i could understand not getting close to the edge of where she wants to make the new end. have you tried brow gel to hold them in place? it’s like clear mascara gel to hold your brows in place. good luck! perfect brows make SUCH a difference! it will be worth it in the end=)

I second the brow gel to get the crazy hairs to behave. I went through this 5 years ago just stick to it

it is sooooo hard!
my trick has been to make all the appointments (every 3 weeks) with the threader so that has been motivating me to leave them.
and i threw out my tweezers!!
i know it will be worth it but just wish this torture was over!!
just getting the middle bit to grow is awful. from a side view they are sticking out so bad… Really trying not to have to speak with my work colleagues in too close a conversation!!
it better work out in time for may!
pls keep your fingers x for me!

I am !!! and so is my daughter- hahaha….and we are both hating it !!!
I let them grow in a bit, with minimal tweezing, and then went and had threading done to help shape them and grow in properly. I will go every 3 weeks to have them threaded until the wedding in June.

i am filling in the gaps now with a brow powder each day and using the gel but they are still sticking out!! i think i need to keep at it to just train them.
i know they will look so much better and more natural. anyone going through this i feel your pain!!

I think I just cringed a little when you said you threw out your tweezers…..LOL
I could seriously die without mine! I pluck my little brow friends everyday….I am also familiar with the unibrow…I had one so bad that kids in school called me “Bert.” NOT COOL! I also over tweezed a bit a few years ago, they have sinced grown in. I could not go without tweezing though, I’d go insane! And why won’t she get rid of the unibrow for you??? That doesn’t make sense….I guess stick with the brow gel and train them to lay down. How bout glue? LOL!

Ok ladies, I hate to ask, but what is threading?
Post # 12
Yup, clear brow gel, like everyone else said. CVS/Walgreens/etc should have it.

You should try that Latisse stuff. It’s supposed to be used for eyelashes, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work for eyebrows as well.

next time i go in i will tell her i cant cope with the unibrow!.. now bees they do not touch or anything (yet lol) but the definition between them is awful and they are wildly growing!

I get mine dyed a little darker and waxed about every 5 weeks. I had to miss my last appointment, moved the appointment (to 2 weeks later…that’s all she had) and had to cancel that one. So, now I”m just waiting for the week before my wedding. They are bushy (as bushy as mine get) and blonde, so they are looking like the ends are disappearing. It’s terrible. It’s going to be really weird to have them done again – it will look like major change!

I don’t have any advice for what to do with them while they are growing (brow gel to tame them sounded like a good idea), but if you want the process to go faster, there are liquid products for eyebrow and eyelash growth. They do actually work. If you don’t mind splurging a bit, the one I’m familiar with is Jan Marini’s lash conditioner. I’m sure there are other brands/products if you ask at a spa.
