Mine are dark, some are pretty long, I can get a good enuff shape, but I have to do them everyday. I hate it when the darkest ones just start to come thru and are more like specs, and i cannot get hold of them, save for gouging a hole in my skin,
Then there are the fine light ones below the actual eyebrow, and sometimes thee seems to be loads of them.
A friend of mine uses these little shaped eyebrow wax strips, but they did zilch, except to tear my skin.
Is professional waxing the answer, and what to heck doyou do , hide indoors until they are long enuff to go and get done
I used to get mine waxed (am too much of a pauper now) and paid about £10 a go, in Kent. My eyebrows are also fine and blonde-ish but I still had to have it done about once a month. Some did grow back before the month was up but unless I was going somewhere special I didn't tweeze them as it only made them sprout earlt again next month.
I second for threading. I go to a chinese/asian type beauty place. £3 every 2 weeks. Don't let them grow too long or it is sore.
Last time she also groomed the longer ones with scissors and dyed them - they look like real models' brows now you see in magazines.
What is threading?
I have mine waxed every 4 weeks, and she trims them with scissors too. Usually rather messy for a week before I go, but if I pluck them myself then they just end up growing back out of sync with the rest!
I'm not really sure how they thread to be honest - but it is using a very long bit of thread twisted in 2. The girl holds the middle bit in her mouth and she kind of spins the thread and snatches out the hairs.
