Put away the pencil

Eyebrow extensions help solve over-plucking problems

  • Print

I am not really sure when it happened but a full brow is all the rage on the beauty scene. Everything from over grown and bushy to filled in and sculpted -- a full brow is what women want.

If you have fallen victim to the after-effects of the skinny brow, say adios to the pencil because the latest beauty treatment has finally arrived in the 'Peg.

"Brow extensions are a new revolutionary beauty treatment that originated in the U.K.," says Siuleen Thai, owner of Beautifeye Lashes. "Similar to lash extensions, they are tiny synthetic hairs made to replicate a natural brow hair. They even come in different colours from auburn, black, and hues of brown to look as natural as possible."

Like the lash extensions, brow extensions are meticulously adhered to each individual brow hair to add fullness to areas where the hairs are thin or sparse. And for those who have the problem of no hairs in spots, there are even special adhesives that are designed to work on skin.

"It's a perfect treatment for those with little gaps in their brows, have a scar on their brow, or who's brows have thinned out over the years and need a little boost," says Thai.

Once applied (treatments take a little over an hour) the brow is shaped to your liking and can last about two weeks with the tint and shape lasting a little longer.

I have to admit I was a bit afraid of the treatment when I first heard of it. What if the brow ended up too thick, a la Madonna in the '80s? But after trying them out for myself, I have to say I am quite impressed.

Other than laying down for a long time, the treatment is painless and the brow looks filled in and bold (a little surprising the first time you look in the mirror but the tinting fades after the first 24 hours). Best part is I can shave off a few minutes from my morning beauty routine by forgoing the pencil.
