"Speak you this with a sad brow?" asked Shakespeare. My friend, Jan Barrington, had more than a sad brow; she had no brow. At a prepubescent age, she decided to shape her brows with Nair hair remover. Needless to say, Anne was sans brows for quite a long time. Now that bushy brows are back in style, Anne is still out of luck. Her brows never recouped their bushiness. Oh, how trends change. There is some scientific evidence that Rogaine will help the over-plucker or the Nair-do-well to regrow their plucks, but once the application ceases, so does the regrowth.Read More......
As a woman with Sad Brow Syndrome, I have coached my brows into shape with Anastasia's brow products. Although Oprah launched Anastasia Soare into most women's cosmetic vernacular, the brow maven had already performed her magic on most of women and girls in Hollywood. The influence of Anastasia's mother, who was a tailor, and Anastasia's attendance at the Romania College of Architecture, honed Anastasia's aesthetic skills prior to becoming a cosmetology student.
Anastasia's brow kit is $85, but it's a one-stop brow shop. It includes brow powder, brow gel, after tweeze cream, eye lights, matte pencil, brush (angled cut/spooley), precision tweezers, and stencils.
But for the tweezer addict, the deal of the day is Tweezer Annonymous at Sephora (only available at Sephora. A $80 value for $55).This kit includes a brow stix three-piece stencil set, duo brow wand (a new powder featuring a dual-sided applicator with brunette and ash blonde brow powders); a mini duo brush; and Nú Brow, a brow conditioner.
(The only caveat, if you are light blonde, your brows may require the golden blonde powder. Brow powder should be two shades darker than your hair.)
If sad brows still prevail and you are plucky woman, you could always have eyebrow transplant surgery.
