Expert tips for growing out your brows
Brows looking a little sparse? Are you dying to thicken those bad boys right up?
I totally get you. Which is why I threw all your brow-growing questions at Brow Expert Jazz Pampling, and here’s what she had to say:
What are your tips for trying to grow out your brows?
You really need patience. What you have to remember is if you have been incorrectly shaping your brows for years, it can take time to regrow. Generally I have found if you have one bad session of waxing/tweezing it will take up to six months for that section to regrow. Don’t be afraid to grow your brow out, no one will pay as much attention to your messy brow as you will. If you aren’t sure what your shape should be, I suggest you see someone who specialises in brow shaping, even if you only see them once or twice, it will put you on the right track.
Is there anything you can do to help the hair grow? Do brow serums work to help hair growth?
I have had clients use brow growth serums and they do work. Just keep in mind that it can take up to six months to really see a difference, so stick with it.
Sidenote: bh’s Cherie has been using Regaine (yep, the men’s hair growth treatment) and Talika Eyebrow Lipocils Eyebrow Enhancer on her brows and she’s had excellent results!
When growing out your brows, are there any areas you can pluck so that you don’t look completely dishevelled?
I always tweeze quite low around the brow bone. Don’t take anymore than about your pinky width of hair on the bridge of the nose.
If you aren’t sure, don’t go crazy. The moment you “umm” or “ahh” about a hair, don’t take it. If you do make a mistake, don’t try and balance it on the other side, just pencil it in until it grows back in. Put the tweezers down and walk away from the mirror.
Where should you avoid plucking/waxing when growing out your brows?
Pencil in your brow the way you would like to see your brow grow, this will help identify areas that need to re-grow, then tweeze around that shape. This way you wont keep tweezing the same areas time and time again.
