Beauty Remorse: Over-Tweezed Eyebrows


I remember the days in high school where I regularly went on tweezing sprees with my eyebrows, constantly ending up with sparse, unflattering arches. I always regretted it and vowed I would never over-tweeze again. But Beauties I've you've overdone it with the tweezers, don't worry--there are ways to speed up growth and hide the damage. But first, stash your tweezers away and let your eyebrows grow in naturally. Tweeze stray hairs if you must, but don't be tempted to groom any further. Before you know it, a pluck there and a pluck here--you'll end up with nothing!

HOW TO Fix Over-Tweezed Eyebrows

  1. Hands off Seriously, leave your eyebrows alone! Tweeze away fine stray hairs but nothing more. It can take from six weeks to six months for your brows to grow back completely, depending on much you have tweezed away already.

  2. Condition your brows When you over-pluck your eyebrows, the hair follicles can get damaged. which can lead to permanent hair loss. There are conditioning treatments you can use to help promote the growth of our eyebrows again. Talika Eyebrow Lipocils is a plant extract based gel that helps stimulate hair growth in as little as 30 days (but results differ from person to person).

  3. Makeup to the rescue Use a brow brush and comb your eyebrows into your ideal shape. Using a brow pencil or powder in a similar color as your natural hairs, lightly feather in small strokes of color to fill in the gaps and spaces. Use a brow brush to groom fine hairs in place and apply a brow gel to keep them in place. We suggest using Smashbox Angel Brow Brush #12 with Smashbox Brow Tech or Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil to achieve a natural brow.

  4. Seek help from a professional When your eyebrows have grown out, head to your favorite salon to get your eyebrows tweezed, waxed or threaded by a professional. Be descriptive on what you do and do not want. Afterwards, you can either go back every couple of weeks to get touched up or tweeze them yourself. Remember, take a few hairs at a time and step back from the mirror every few hairs or so to check your progress to avoid over-plucking.
