Help with eyebrows please

I'm looking for some help with my eyebrows. I have lost probably half of them to thyroid disease and, after an accident, I now have significant scarring in one eyebrow area. I'm looking for some way to make it look as though I have a full set of eyebrows.

What I have left is light brown and grey. I wonder if somebody could advise me as to what I could do. I have looked at Wonderbrow, but don't really understand how it works. Thanks.

Just got semi-permanent eyebrows today. Love them. Expensive but worth it. Would you consider that?

I would. What can you tell me about it? What's involved?

I have semi-permanent eyebrows. I love them!

I paid £295 about 18 months ago. I was really pleased with the person who did them - she spent ages getting the shape right, and the cost included a re-touch of the colour after about 6 weeks.

I have really fair (completely blonde) eyebrows, so I still dye them every 6 weeks or so, but I just do them myself since I have such a good shape to follow.

If you are in NI I can give you the contact details.

Try Bobbi Brown, they will do an eyebrow tutorial. I've found using a grey eyeshadow followed by an eyebrow gel has solved my invisible eyebrow problem.

Microblading is the new thing.. It meant to mimic the eyebrow hair stroke rather than just an eyebrow tattoo.. Pixiwoo has just had it done, look at her youtube channel

I got the semi permanent brows with combination hair strokes and some filling in towards the 'tail' It didn't hurt at all and I go back in 4 weeks for a top u and to make any changes I want. The microblading sounds good and is cheaper but make sure it is a really experienced person. It's become really popular and you can get a certificate of qualification really easily. I chose the semi-permanent and the girl who did mine because she has nearly 20 years experience, a 6 month plus waiting list and I love all the (millions of) pics of her work online.

Wonderbrow is great (i put a bit on the back of my hand and use a small angled brush to apply) but microblading by a good technician is amazing.
