Eyebrows are one of the facial features that go largely unnoticed unless something is amiss. If you suffer from exceptionally thin hair, alopecia or you’ve never quite gotten the hang of plucking and shaping them properly, eyebrow extensions can help you get the look you want. While drawing them on can look clownish and dyeing them can be expensive and dangerous, extensions will give you a natural-looking, perfectly shaped pair of brows. Whether it’s for your engagement photos, your wedding or your professional headshots, having well-groomed brows finishes off a polished look and draws attention to your eyes.
The Process of Applying Eyebrow Extensions
If you have sparse, uneven brows, our technician can place the extensions either on the skin right next to the natural hairs or directly onto the existing eyebrow hair. This adds volume and makes the extensions indistinguishable from your natural hair. Extensions are available in a huge range of colors and textures to better help them blend in. Our technician will carefully dip each extension into adhesive and then place it where it’s needed. For those who already have natural eyebrows, the process may take between half an hour and 45 minutes.
For those who do not have any eyebrows, the process works much the same but takes longer. Our technician will look carefully at the shape of your face and the brow bone to determine where your eyebrows should be. Carefully, the outline is established with extensions and then filled in. This can greatly help camouflage the hair loss associated with alopecia, cancer treatments or overzealous plucking.
Aftercare of Eyebrow Extensions
Extensions can last anywhere from five days to four weeks, depending on how often you wash your face, how careful you are to avoid touching them and what type of application method is used. If you sleep on your back, this will also help your extensions to last longer. As the adhesive comes away, the extensions will shed much like normal hairs. You can have new extensions reapplied on your own schedule, if desired.
