How to Gracefully Grow Your Brows
Whether you’ve overdone it with the tweezers or are interested in trying a bolder, more natural brow shape, the transition of growing out your brows does not need to be an awkward endeavor. Just steer clear of the magnifying mirror and follow our 5 tips to beautiful brows in 6 to 8 weeks:
- Wait it out. You can try self-proclaimed miracle serums and natural remedies (some swear by castor oil) to promote hair growth, but at the end of the day (or month) your brows take time to grow back. If you attempt to shape the brow while it is still growing you can disrupt the natural shape and create holes.
- Groom sparingly. If you absolutely cannot resist plucking your brows, at least restrain yourself to certain areas. For instance, never pluck the top of your brows since you can accidentally lower your arch. Try plucking only stray hairs at the very underside of your brow.
- Brush and fill. Gently brushing and massaging your hairs or the over-plucked areas can help stimulate the hair follicle and encourage growth. For any sparse areas, use a brow powder or pencil to create a symmetrical shape.
- Conceal. Those prickly stray hairs can be distracting. Luckily, many makeup artists have found a perfectly matched concealer can make re-growth less obvious. Simply dab the concealer over stray hairs and then set with a matching powder. Our Sumita Beauty Brow Base is a great concealer pencil that hides imperfections along the brow line and also doubles as a shadow base. A highlighter, like our Brow Bright, is also ideal for reflecting light -- keeps brows looking defined and groomed during this transitional period.
- Pop a vitamin. Trying a hair vitamin or even a simple multi-vitamin can also help hasten hair growth. Just don’t expect miracles… remember tip #1 still applies.
