3 Eyebrow Treatments You Probably Didn't Know Existed, But Will Definitely Want To Try Now That You Do

We truly couldn’t be happier that eyebrows have come back in such a big way (literally!). Gone are the days of over-plucked 90s brows (thank goodness!)–now women are clamoring for full, bold eyebrows a la Cara Delevingne and Lily Collins.

Now, you can obviously fake full brows with the help of a precise powder routine, but your options don’t end there. If you’re looking to give your eyebrows a more serious boost, Umbreen Sheikh, founder of Wink Brow Bar, is here to give us the scoop on three new eyebrow treatments you may want to consider trying.

Brow Extensions. Umbreen explains that brow extensions are typically placed either individually directly onto skin or atop the natural brow hair. The look is meant to give brows the illusion of length and fullness. The process is fairly simple: first, the brows are analyzed to ensure the perfect customization. Next, strips of tiny synthetic hairs are attached to your skin and brows using a skin-safe glue. There are hundreds of shades and lengths, so you’ll always find one that fits. Keep in mind that if your brow wiz uses the hair-to-skin technique, your extensions will last about 7-10 days. If they use the hair-to-hair technique, the longevity increases to about 3-4 weeks, depending on how well they’re taken care of by the client (no scrubbing, Umbreen warns).

Brow Tinting. This is a great option if you’re looking to add fullness and definition to your brows. The process, which takes all of ten minutes, starts with finding product that is a shade or two darker than your current brows. The rule of thumb, as Umbreen explained, is to keep the color the same shade as your roots. It doesn’t matter if your brows are naturally dark: lighter-colored bits can be added to the underside of your brow to create more depth. Umbreen warns against trying to tint at home: you run the risk of burning and irritating your skin. If your technician uses a veggie-based dye, you can expect your tint to last 7-10 days. If not, tinting can last an average of 4-6 weeks, no maintenance required!

Brow Transplant. If all of the above sound too tame for you, a brow transplant may be more up your alley. The process starts with a small amount of hair from just above the ear to be transplanted to the eyebrow. The procedure should be performed by a qualified physician (who probably isn’t your go-to threading or waxing technician!) and takes around two to three hours. Umbreen described the procedure as “highly artistic” and each brow is designed to align with your facial type, your features and the results that you’re looking for. An experienced physician, she explains, should consider the arch type, thickness of the hair, space between the brows and brow length for each client. Keep in mind that a transplant is permanent (but you knew that already, didn’t you?) and are virtually undetectable.
