I have always been a bit eye-brow challenged. They are very fair, kind of shortish, and yesterday I was told they are now getting "sparse".

I had grown them back in because I wanted a change from the old shape and was curious about the Hollywood Brow...so yesterday was the day I went for a new tint and wax.

I cannot believe the magic she has wrought. I had NO IDEA I could have such fabulous brows! The shape is wonderful, much different to what I had before which was your basic plucking under the arch. I have brows like Kim Kardashian! It is amazing the difference it has made. I feel like a new woman...sparse brows or not.

Good for you!

My niece is getting married and my usual make up of tinted moisterizer and a little mascara and tinted lip balm isn't going to work so yesterday I played with some makeup. I tried to darken my brows a bit and honestly, I felt like it aged me. It was AWFUL. I looked like an evil Disney character. Oh look, it's Geezerene!

I just might take a tip from you and go see someone....

Pictures! Maybe some before and after brows?

My brows have always been a source of self consciousness for me. Like the rest of my hair, they're very fine which means mush them the wrong way and I look like I have bald patches. Was it the color that made the big impact, or did the shaping really change them as well?

It is surprising how something so simple and inexpxensive can improve a person's look so much. They look groomed,polished and it really makes most everyone look prettier.

I just got mine tattooed on. Problem solved

I burned one of them off a few years ago when I hit my head on a hot exhaust piper and the hair never grew back. They're not chola brows mind you, and people are always surprised when they find out they're not 'real'.

I think I'm the only person I know who doesn't ever shape my brows...never have. Everyone in my family on my mom's side happens to have a nice natural arch and shape. In the past couple of years, I've found I'll have an odd, obvious stray to pluck every now and then, but having my brows done has not been something I've ever needed. I was a teen in the 90s, when plucking pencil thin brows was the thing...never did that, but some of my peers have brows that were never the same after that.

I get mine done once and a while. Mine are pretty thin, but the natural shape is good. I get them done around every 2-3 months. I did go on hiatus when they started looking a little sparse for about 18 months (I didn't do anything to them at all).

I am treading carefully. I know my aunt didn't have any in her 50s from overplucking. And well body hair is pretty minimal for me. I barely have leg hair, no arm hair. And I can just imagine the hair not growing back where I have shaped my brows. So now I just have them cleaned up a bit. If the hairs never grow back in, today, I won't be annoyed. They are as "thick" as they can be.

I've plucked mine down too much and the hair isn't growing back. It's nice to know I have options to make them look better again.
