    Is there actually a way to get your eyebrows back once they've been over tweezed, waxed, or shaved?

    I know there a ton of said ways out there to grow your eyebrows back.  What I don't know is if any of them actually work.  I'm talkin' back to how they were originally, or as close to that as possible.

    Remember that you are unique in the whole universe.
    There is no other like you.
    So, you are special.

    It isn't too likely.  If you have been over-plucking for a long time, you have probably pulled out the bulb of the hair on several of them.  Those won't grow back.  Others might grow back but will probably grow back finer.  I feel for you.  I had really bushy brows when I was young and plucked them according to how the style was.  I haven't plucked them in years and they are so thin.  My thyroid has made even more of the hairs fall out... and a good share of what is left is gray!  You can give the illusion of real eyebrows by using both an eyebrow pencil or liner and eye shadow, as close to your hair color as possible.  Draw on light strokes.  It will look different at first, because you aren't used to it, but it will look pretty natural.

    No,  if you have killed the hair follicles.  I suppose you could have a hair transplant. 

    The eyelash growers/thickeners that use a prescription drug (Latise is one) might work to thicken any eyebrows that you have left.  It's an "off lable" use, but has reportedly worked.

    You'll just have to pencil in the eyebrows to get the look you want.  Looks do make a big difference, but kindness and friendliness will sustain relationships, both personal and business.  I second what the akuigla said.

    Have I pulled the bulb/follicle if there's still hair there, but it's just really fine and maybe thin?
