I'm seriously considering stopping the dye and going grey. I have black eyebrows, I dont want to look like Alastair Darling.

That wouldn't be a good look. Would it?
I've bleached my eyebrows before, or would it look ok?

If your eyebrows aren't tinted that shad then they'll probably work just fine with the percentage of grey you have. They'll certainly grey-up in time.

Go for it, I say!

I pluck my grey eye brows out grin. I would guess that I would be at least 90% grey, maybe more.

Thanks for the encouragment, by the way smile. My hair has been falling out loads due to Lupus and I don't think the dye is helping. I'm quite upset by it to be honest . I go between dark and bleach a lot, I have a pixie cut.

Oh, right, should really help then, you'd think. Fucking Lupus.

(gniffle at worrying about having black brows whilst whipping out the greys)

I could pluck the black ones and leave the grey, but I'd have very straggly eyebrows. grin.
I have great eyebrows <modest>

You might still be darker than you think at the back and underneath BTW. Often happens.

x post . Great eyebrows are a gift indeed. Next on the list to great cheekbones, maybe.

I adore grey hair. I say go for it. The most gorgeous woman I know is about 40, has deep salt and pepper hair with shiny white streaks and beautiful thick black eyebrows. I am dead jealous of her.

I shall be a silver fox.
Or bald .
Which ever happens soonest.

My eyebrows are black. I have some gray hair. It looks fine.
I'd hate having gray eyebrows. When they turn gray, I'll dye them or pluck them out and draw them on with pencil.

If I look a tit I'm putting all the blame on you basia smile
