How to: Grow out your eyebrows
At some point in our lives we’ve committed the popular crime of over-plucking our eyebrows. With the likes of Cara Delevingne, Lily Collins and many more (lets be honest, most?!) celebrities sporting thick natural looking brows, we want to be part of his high brow clique! While filling in our brows with product helps us to achieve fuller brows instantly, achieving a natural full brow is what most of us really want! But be warned, growing out your eyebrows is no easy feat! The key to success is perseverance and knowing when to put the tweezers down! See below for the main steps you should take to achieve full natural brows a la Cara!
No tweezers allowed for 15 – 16 weeks!
According to eyebrow expert Kristie Streicher you need to completely stop tweezing for 15 weeks! The reason for this lengthy process is because the brows grow in a roughly three- to four-month cycle. Streicher explains, “Trust the process. When new hair is left alone and not tweezed, it will then start to grow closer to the brow line.”
Although your brows will look really strange, you need to stay strong and not reach for the tweezers just yet! At week 16 you’ll start to see brow hair growing closer to your brows. Still, do not touch these! It is only at the end of the 16th week that you should begin to tweeze the hairs closest to the eyelid or lash line. Streicher advises, “The gentle stimulation of tweezing close, but not too close, to the brow line can promote growth along the actual brow line.”
Use eyebrow enhancing serums
