Artificial Eyebrows When You Have No Eyebrows

by Jessie Lin

People with no eyebrows can often feel like their faces don’t look complete, and even though there are a lot of different reasons for people not to have eyebrows, luckily there are also a lot of different options to take if you should happen to lose your eyebrows. You could fill in your eyebrows using makeup or tattoos, or you could opt to get artificial eyebrows.

How Do People Lose Their eyebrows?

The cause for a person losing their eyebrows could have been a freak lab experiment with an unfortunate miscalculation involving the Bunsen burner, it could have been because they got a bit overzealous with the tweezers a few too many times, it could be genetic, or it could be because of medical treatments like chemotherapy. Other possible causes are infections or nasty little parasites infecting the hair follicles in the eyebrow and thyroid problems or hormonal imbalance, and a good number of others.

Whatever the reasons, eyebrow loss can be pretty hard on a person, psychologically. Of course, there’ll be those who won’t really mind and can simply shrug and go on with their lives, but for a lot of people, not having eyebrows can feel awkward and embarrassing.

What Can a Person With No Eyebrows Do to Conceal The Fact That They Don’t Have Any?

If your eyebrows aren’t so much “completely gone” as they are just “sparse,” you can try adding a bit of volume and definition to them by filling in some of the blank spots with a few strokes of an eyebrow pencil. It’s definitely a lot less trouble than having to go off and get a set of artificial eyebrows, and it’ll usually cost a lot less than hair regrowth treatments that are likely not to work anyway.

If you have no eyebrows at all though, taking out the eyebrow pencil might not be the best course of action to take. Have you ever had any of those funny aunts whose eyebrows looked like they’d been drawn in with magic marker?

You wouldn’t want to look like that. Of course, it’s possible to get a less… cartoony look using makeup, but it can take a bit of skill and practice to get it just right.

It’s usually a lot easier to get a more flattering and realistic look using artificial eyebrows instead.

What Are Artificial Eyebrows?

Artificial eyebrows are usually made from actual human hair. Normally, they’re already pre-shaped and will either come with an adhesive backing so that all you need to do is apply them to the correct area on the face, or will require special glue application to keep them there.

How Do You Pick Out the Right Kind of Artificial Eyebrows

Whatever the case may be, make sure to check what the ingredients of the adhesive are to make sure that you won’t be getting any nasty reactions. Also, try to get artificial eyebrows that match your real eyebrow color.

If you can’t really tell anymore, you can use your natural hair color (yes, the hair on your head) as a gauge. Normally, eyebrow hair is the same color as the hair on a person’s head, or it can be up to two shades lighter or darker. Whatever the case may be, if you have no eyebrows, don’t worry; the right set of artificial eyebrows, if applied correctly, can look even better than the real thing.

This was pretty cool to read. I’ve always had extremely sparse eyebrows- so thin that you can’t see them at all even when they’re completely grown in. I’ve had to go with the ‘magic marker’ eyebrows because its the only thing I can think of to do. And I hate it, almost as much as I hate going with no eyebrows. Now I really want to look into this adhesive thing, cause it might save me a world of trouble.
Also, you mentioned up above that lack of eyebrows could be caused by thyroid problems. I’ve had thyroid problems since I was born and it’s caused some other discrepancies too, so I definitely need to look into that for my eyebrows.

My husband has alopecia totalis and is losing his hair. He has half a head of hair but the hair left is also thinning. He started losing his beard and moustache now. The next thing will be his eyebrows. He can handle being bold but without eyebrows…. thats another story. Can you please send me some information regarding false eyebrows made with human hair? I want to be prepared once it happens. Can you also give me your address and prices and give me an idea with sizes, colours etc., and where to order from.
Thanking you
