Why do I have thin eyebrows?

Hair growth is generally something that has to do with your genetics.

Women with thin eyebrows usually have thin hair around the rest of their body, while women with thick eyebrows tend to have thicker hair, which usually means spending more time trying to remove it.

You should also keep in mind that if you have thin eyebrows, this could be a symptom of a disorder, especially if it’s a change from how they normally are.

Hair loss in one or both eyebrows could have something to do with skin problems, hormone imbalances, autoimmune diseases, or taking some sort of medication that affects your hair follicles.

Eyebrows are generally worn more naturally today, not too thin or too thick. The inner part is generally a little thicker and more natural, then it arches up and gets thinner towards the outer edges.

A good professional can help give your eyebrows a beautiful, natural look.

Brushing and drawing on eyebrows

A lot of women pluck away too much of their eyebrows and then end up needing to paint them in. Just a few years ago, this seemed old-fashioned and over-the-top.

But today, it has become fashionable to discretely paint your eyebrows and blend it in with the hair.  This makes your eyes stand out and it gives your “look” several different tones.

There are more and more pencils being put on the market. You should always us one slightly lighter than your natural color. Paint on your eyebrows discretely, then blend the color in. You can also use a special eyebrow brush to help you.

If you don’t have any eye pencils, you can also use eyeliner, but you should always use the proper color so that it looks natural.

Remember, it’s always important to consider your specific face shape and eyes so that you can highlight your features and cover up any imperfections.

That’s why we recommend that you see a professional at least the first time. That way they can give you personalized tips and tricks that you can follow on your own later on.
