Eyebrow Enhancement - How To Improve Thin Eyebrows

Updated on March 23, 2010

Salon Quality Eyebrow Enhancer

Many men and women all over the world aren't happy with their eyebrows.  This makes a lot of sense really.  The eyebrows have quite a strong effect on the overall appearance of the face.  If they aren't shaped properly or maybe not thick enough, it can really change your appearance - and sometimes for the worse!  The term eyebrow enhancement basically refers to the practice of making your eyebrows more attractive.  In this article, we'll look at why people consider enhancing their eyebrows and how they go about doing so.  Keep in mind as you read this text that there is a number of wonderful sites on the Internet that offer various solutions to thin eyebrows and the like.

So why do people look into eyebrow enhancement?  There are a number of reasons really.  Usually it's for a cosmetic upgrade.  A woman may think that her eyebrows are too thin and need a bit of thickening.  Thinness is basically a result of not enough hair in the eyebrow.  People may also not be too happy with the shape of their eyebrow.  Maybe it just doesn't suit the rest of their face or provide a proper frame for their eyes.  Color is another issue that could make someone consider eyebrow enhancement.  It's possible that the color of the hair in your brow doesn't match the color of the hair on your head.  The final reason one looks for a good eyebrow enhancer revolves around doing something different.  A lot of people just like changing things up!  We all have a few friends that can't help changing their hair style or color every fort night.  This same desire for something different can be seen in the eyebrow industry as well.

How Can I Enhance My Eyebrows?

There are basically two schools of though on this. The first one involves surgery, the second one doesn't. We'll talk about the latter first. One can enhance their eyebrows quite effectively through the use of a number of different cosmetic products. One such product is the eyebrow pencil. While this item won't actually make the hair in the eyebrow any thicker, it will give the illusion of a healthy fullness. When choosing a good eyebrow pencil, it's important to consider a few things. First off, it shouldn't be too greasy. When the make up is applied, it should feet dry and tough. This will ensure that the lush, full effect sticks around for a decent amount of time. You should also look for a waterproof eyebrow pencil for the same reason.

Now, although these products are good for short term solutions, it is only that - a short term solution. Every night, before you go to bed, you'll have to wash this product off your face. Then when you wake up the next day, you'll have to apply it all over again. This can be a bit of a pain in the butt. There is also a bit of a learning curve to enhancing your eyebrows with a pencil. If done wrong, it can look pretty bad...

So, the other option that you have if you want to encourage eyebrow enhancement is to go under the knife. Eyebrow hair restoration surgery is quickly becoming a very popular cosmetic procedure. This isn't a major procedure my any means. It basically involves taking hair from another source and grafting it onto your eyebrow. If done properly, the hair your eyebrows are left with grow just like they are your own. While this procedure isn't as complicated as many cosmetic surgery's, there is still risk involved. Things rarely go wrong though. A typical "worst case scenario" is having to go back to the doctor for multiple sessions. When all is said and done, your once thin eyebrows will be thick, strong and shaped.

      If they took a head hair and put it in the eyebrows, could it grow really long? That would be weird. I used to use Latisse and my eyebrows and I feel like they thickened up a bit.
