Perfect brows don’t just happen: they’re a work of art, with emphasis on the work.
Some of us have curly hair (which is great) and curly brows to match (which isn’t). As we age, those lush arches can start showing fifty (or more) shades of grey and become sparser and thinner. If you were heavy-handed with the tweezers and brow pencils for years, your brows probably look so much like Greta Garbo’s that you really do want to be alone.
Whatever the condition and appearance of your brows, the good news is that they can be fixed. In this blog, we’ll go over common examples of bad brows and show you how to whip them into shape.
Those first signs of grey in your hair can send you running to the salon. What should you do when your brows follow suit?In both cases, the fix is the same: a flattering tint that turns your mature brows from drab to fab in a single visit. A brow stylist will help you choose a shade that flatters your hair colour and skin tone while beautifully shaping and defining your brows.
Your brows can thin out over time for a lot of reasons: diet, stress, lifestyle, and especially age. While brow powders can provide a quick yet soft and natural-looking fix, you can enjoy longer-lasting results by visiting a stylist to have henna brows done.This beauty trend, which has drawn rave reviews from celebs and Vogue Australia beauty editor Remy Rippon, uses a plant-based henna to safely colour your brow area and skin. It hides sparseness in your brow area and gives the impression of lush, healthy eyebrows.
Curly Brows Your eyebrows match your hair in texture as well as colour. If you have luscious and curly locks, your brows are also curly, which isn’t quite so appealing.The solution? Go to an experienced brow artist who will expertly brush and trim them before waxing or tweezing them into a shape that opens up your eyes and adds symmetry to your face. At ARDOUR brows & lashes, we will use a keratin brow fusion treatment to redirect your natural eyebrow growth and hold them in place while enhancing their shape and volume. We will also recommend products that lock your beautiful brows in place between trimmings.
Keira Knightly, Emma Watson, and Rita Ora have all shown that the bold and beautiful eyebrow trend is still going strong. Bushy brows? Not so much.If your brows look wild, your favourite stylist can help you tame them. A straighter shape, higher arch, or extended tail can make them appear groomed instead of grungy. The best thing about bushy brows is that you’ve got a lot to work with: all it takes is some trimming, waxing, and even tinting to make them fabulous.
Overdone Brows If you’ve got sparse brows, you likely use a brow pencil to fill in the gaps. However, if the pencil doesn’t have a rich enough pigment, you may have been ignoring the traditional advice to use soft strokes and simply pressed harder to deepen the colour. This type of harsh motion will tug on your brows and weaken them over time.Thinned-out brows due to over-enthusiastic pencil or crayon use can be boosted with tinting or henna brows. Your brow artist will assess their condition and recommend the right fix for you.
