Maybe you have naturally thin brows or you lost them in the overtweezing plague of 1990 or your brows are full and gorgeous but you want them to fleek to the fleekiest fleek?
Welcome to the wondrous world of BROW EXTENSIONS.
To get extensions, brow technicians use tweezers to dip tiny synthetic hairs into skin-safe glue…
And then the hairs are individually applied to the skin.
“The process can take up to two and a half hours to get the shape and fullness just right,” Umbreen Sheikh, founder and CEO of NYC-based brow bar Wink, tells BuzzFeed Life.
And the before-and-afters that women are posting online are staggering.
Some women are adding a little definition to lighter brows…
While others are filling in overtweezed ones…
Or taming and reshaping fuller ones.
Some women get brow extensions after they lose their hair to health issues.
“People who have lost their eyebrows to alopecia, chemotherapy, and anxiety disorders come to us for extensions,” says Sheikh.
Brow extensions last between two to three weeks and cost anywhere from $75 to $350.
“If you sweat a lot, they’re not going to last very long,” Sheikh says. To keep them from falling out too fast, avoid touching them when washing your face. And just avoid touching them in general.
Brow game: STRONG.
