I admit, I have experience over-plucking my eyebrows. The worst part of this is that I, as a cosmetologist, know better than plucking away too much precious eyebrow hair. Eyebrow hair grows back slowly and is an incredibly important part of your face, that fact alone is why I usually recommend that people see a professional from time to time to keep their brows looking great. But at the time, I was in a rush and grabbed a few too many hairs at once as I was tweezing away the strays, the result was an extra skinny spot on my eyebrows. It goes without saying that I am not the only person that has experienced this, let’s go over a few of the reasons why you should take care of your eyebrows to make them beautiful.
Not plucking at all. Most women do not have perfect eyebrows, I think pretty much all women could use a little eyebrow taming from time to time. Well-groomed brows can make you look younger, prettier, and more professional. But going au-natural with your brows could mean bushy, uneven brows, a unibrow, or just a messy, frumpy look. Instead, get professional help in plucking or waxing the first time, and be extremely cautious in the future when removing extra eyebrow hairs. Well-groomed brows are the most appealing and professional. If you want the best eyebrows, then you should look into permanently microbladed eyebrows.
Over plucking. Avoid over-plucking by tweezing slowly, take only one or two hairs at a time, then switch to the other eyebrow and pluck just one or two hairs. Continue alternating brows until you get the look you desire. I prefer to use a tiny pair of tweezers, with bright lights and a mirror for the best results.
Making brows too skinny. Well-groomed eyebrows are pleasing to look at. However, too skinny brows can do more harm than good to your appearance. Skinny brows can look harsh, making you look older, tired, or grumpy. Make sure you let your brows grow in a little bit if you feel they are starting to look too thin.
Leaving brows messy. Messy brows are easily tamed with a tiny bit of eyebrow gel. Apply a mascara type brush on it to keep your bushy brows under control, you’ll look and feel better about yourself.

Uneven brows. This usually happens when someone over-plucks, you may need to fill in with a little brow powder to even out those brows, wait for them to grow back, or see a professional to get them fixed.
If you do pluck your own eyebrows, remember that bright, natural sunlight gives you the best lighting to pluck away those extra hairs. If you have trouble seeing which hairs to pluck, try using the rearview mirror in your car for the best results.
