About two years ago I had a “friend” who was no longer a practicing beautician do my eyebrows.
O.M.G!!!!!! I don’t do thin eyebrows, and I told her NO THIN EYEBROWS. And she gave me these awful granny thin brows. GAH! YUCK!!
I have been trying to grow them back for several months now, with the help of my very knowledgeable stylist/beautician. But they are really looking bad. They are growing back, but the process is painfully slow. I have spots with little hair, and then spots that are fully grown in.
I have been using eyebrow pencils and powders to make them look better. But still they just look like shit!
Can anyone recommend a product that is not stupid expensive to speed this process up? It is so hard to not try to “fix them”, and wait till they are fully grown back in. I feel like I look like a freak with really F’ed up eyebrows.

This happened 2 years ago and your brows still arent growing back?
I wish I had that problem. You wanna trade? I have to pluck twice a week, mine grow back so fast. I get a unibrow in about 3 days.
I know that wasnt advice, but since I dont have that problem, I dont have any advice to give. =/

They are growing back, it is just spotty. I have been waxing my brows for years, and when you wax a lot hair grows back less and less.
I would happily trade you. It is funny because hair on the rest of my body seems to come back no problem…..

just fill them in with a pencil while theyre growing….i feel you. I literally will not let ANYONE touch my brows because they always make them too thin So I pluck them myself haha it’s awful but worth it

Is that dummy proof? I have a terrible time making them look even. I have looked at that procuct online. Is it fairly easy to use, I am not a big make up person, so I would have to school myself on how to use it.

I am just so stressed out over this (amoung many other things)!! I have less than 5 months to get them looking good……
As always you ladies are always so helpful!
After she screwed them up I have found it almost impossible to let them go and look like shit to get back to where I initially started. Lesson learned!!

@thumpurr: I feel you! I have been growing my inner brows in since April and they look so sloppy while the rest of my brow looks fine with regular grooming. Not to mention they are not growing in evenly of course.
I use Dirshow brow styler pencil which is really great but not the best for my problem area I use it really on the rest of my brow. My eyebrow hairs are long so powders look weird on me but I have friends who love powders. I also have been dying to try benefit’s gimme brow. Its suposed to be fantastic.

I don’t thinkmany makeup products are “dummy proof”. They have stencils, but I free hand my brow fill in. It just takes practice.

This is brow enhancing serum, and it has great reviews
$38 is pretty expensive but:
a) they are a major focal point on your face and you want nice wedding pics!
b) I am sure there are cheaper alternatives!
Also- looks like womens rogaine will work!

my best advice: fill them in with a brow powder in the right color. I never use pencil anymore to fill in my brows and although mine haven’t been through the ordeal yours have they still really need to be filled. Browpowder is like an eyeshadow that you apply with an angled brush made for the purpose and it’s much easier to create a ‘feathery’ look that is natural without spending too much time or risk making harsh, weird lines.

@thumpurr: I feel for you. I have patches in my eyebrows too as they grow in.
I use pencil liner, and just let them grow. My wedding isn’t for another year, though. 🙂

I’m in the same boat kind of. I used to pluck my brows myself, and eventually they became thinner and thinner. I used to have to pluck them every other day, and now I have patches that refuse to grow back.
I now get them professionally threaded at a place that specializes in eyebrows, it’s amazing!
I would recommend Tarte Amazonian Clay for your brows. It stays on and one little pot of it lasts for what seems like forever.
I was advised to massage my brow area to stimulate hair growth.

@thumpurr: I know what you are going through. I wished someone told me back in high school not to pluck my eyebrows so thin because they won’t grow back the same, I would have listened. I tried to grow my eyebrows and I have patches with no hair growth. It sucks, but eyeshadow and brow pencils work miracles if you use the right technique. I use eyeshadow, an angled brow brush, concealer, concealer brush, brow gel and sometimes a brow pencil. I have a scar on my left eyebrow from stitches, so I have to also cover that. You tube tutorials on eyebrows are very helpful as well. Here are my eyebrow pics.

I understand! I realized recently that my eyebrows are a little bit too far apart, and it’s not symmetrical because one side is closer to the middle. So I’m growing that back in and it sure is awkward… I’ve been using a brow pencil/powder to fill it in which I have NEVER before done in my life, so I hope it looks ok haha. I haven’t tried it, but apparently there is stuff like Latisse for your eyebrows. Maybe check that out?
