Over plucking is a beauty disaster according to some industry experts. Young girls, older women and moms are all guilty of tweezing too much. Perfectly sculpted eyebrows can frame a face, widen eyes or express emotion but if you don't have eyebrows, none of this is possible. If you have gone through a plucking frenzy and want your brows back, follow these steps to grow back eyebrows.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Stop tweezing immediately if you pluck your eyebrows. If your eyebrows are thin and not proportional to your face, use eyebrow pencils to fill in. The majority of women need to pluck judiciously to have nicely formed brows.

  2. 2

    Give time a chance. This is key to growing back eyebrows. During the period of re-growth use a pencil to fill in sparse growth but don't pluck strays that look like they will never fit in with old brows. If you don't give them a chance, they will never grow back.

  3. 3

    Consider hair re-growth products that are available if your hair loss is not a result of plucking. These products don't work uniformly for all people. One product may work for you but not for someone else.

  4. 4

    Mask a thin eyebrow problem while you wait for eyebrows to grow back. Eyebrow pencils or powders, matched to your brow color help fill in and make them appear fuller. Stencil kits that include an eyebrow pencil and a pre-cut stencil are perfect if you aren't sure what shape you want now and to help you determine the final shape of your restored brows.

  5. 5

    Look into eyebrow wigs made of human hair, tattoos or permanent make up as alternatives if re-growth is not possible. Hair transplant is a very new procedure for people who have extreme brow hair loss and maybe an option also.
