Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder resulting in some degree of hair loss. The type of hair loss may be complete in alopecia universalis or it may occur in circular patches in alopecia areata. If the alopecia affects hair on the face, eyebrows and eyelashes may fall out also. Disguise eyebrows lost to alopecia by using one of several methods to minimise the lack of eyebrows. Because hair loss due to alopecia is often temporary, your efforts may be necessary for only a short time.

Things you need
- Photograph of yourself (with eyebrows)
- Eyebrow pencil
Look at the photograph of yourself to recreate your eyebrows with the eyebrow pencil. Use small, light strokes with the pencil to make the appearance of individual hairs making up the eyebrows. Draw your eyebrows as realistically as possible, using the picture as a guide.
Style your hair with fringe, if possible, to hide the lack of eyebrows. Brush your hair down over your forehead and spray hairspray to hold your hair in place.
Use a treatment technique called "dermatography" to place pigmented dots of colour onto the skin where the eyebrows grew. Dermatography procedures take approximately one hour, and no anaesthesia is necessary. Patients generally need two or three treatments, and the results last for years.
