What Causes Uneven Eyebrows?
There are several things that can cause asymmetrical eyebrows.
Sometimes, styling your eyebrows too much can make them look uneven, and you may end up in a never-ending spiral of over-plucking to try and make them look the same.
Occasionally, Botox injections can lead to uneven eyebrows.
This is because Botox affects how the muscles in your face move, and sometimes, the muscles on one eyebrow can be more affected than the other. This can lead to brow asymmetry.
Hair loss conditions, such as alopecia, can also affect the hair growth on your brows as well as your scalp.
You may be losing more hair on one brow than the other, causing them to look uneven.
Ways To Fix Uneven Brows
Just because your brows have become uneven doesn’t mean they need to stay that way.
There are a number of things you can do in order to fix them.
Tip 1: Patience
The one thing you’ll need when fixing uneven brows is patience.
If you’ve lost several hairs on your brows due to over-styling and over-plucking, then the best thing to do is to patiently wait.
While this sounds frustrating, letting them go through the growth cycle is the only way to determine what eyebrow shape suits your facial features best.
This can take anywhere from around four to six weeks.
Tip 2: Measure Your Brows
If you’d like to try styling your brows yourself, once you’ve managed to go around four to six weeks without touching them, you will be able to measure them accordingly, to determine what shape to follow when it comes to styling.
Begin by holding an eyebrow brush or pencil against the outer edge of the top of your nose, and hold it straight up.
If you were to pluck inward, past that point, it may make your brows look further apart than what they are.
To find your natural arch, you must look specifically at where the highest point of individual hairs coming from, which is why you must grow them out as much as possible before this step.
In order to find where your brows should end, position a pencil at the end of your nostrils, tilting it until it makes a 45-degree angle while touching your eyebrow.
This is the ‘tail’ mark of your brow.
Once you’ve managed to map out all of the above, fill them in with an eyebrow pencil to see the finished look.
Tip 3: Makeup
When properly applied, makeup can make uneven eyebrows look even!
Using a brow pencil is the simplest way to fill in any areas that aren’t in line with one another, giving the appearance of thick brows.
There are also several other products you can use on your brows, such brow gel, powders, and even brow mascara!
Tip 4: Microblading
If you’re looking for a more permanent solution, microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup that tattoos tiny, fine-like hair strokes along your brows.
This treatment will give you a full brow transformation!
It can last up to two years, and is performed by a specialist who will measure and style your brows in a way that suits your facial structure best!
Tip 5: Eyebrow Threading
Eyebrow threading is another popular way to fix uneven eyebrows. It is a technique in which a thread is twisted and rolled over the hairs, pulling them out from the roots. This method is less painful than waxing and is suitable for people with sensitive skin.
Tip 6: Eyebrow Waxing
Eyebrow waxing is a quick and easy way to shape your brows. It involves applying warm wax to the unwanted hair and then removing it with a strip. This method can be painful for some people, but it is effective and can last up to four weeks.
It is important to note that both threading and waxing should be done by a professional to avoid any damage to the skin or hair follicles.
Tip 7: See A Brow Artist
If the above points fill you with anxiety, then the easiest option is to go visit a brow specialist (although they’ll make you complete tip 1!).
Once your brows have grown, they’ll be able to measure your brows properly, and will be able to determine the shape that suits your face the best.
They will also be able to style your brows and can help you come up with a brow plan, where you plan your visits to their salon, at the same time as helping your natural brows grow as best they can.
If you have uneven brows due to hair loss from a medical condition, then fixing them is less straightforward.
Your best plan of action would be to visit your doctor, or a hair loss specialist, as they will be able to recommend certain medications that can help your brow hair grow back.
In summary, uneven eyebrows are fairly common, due to all the different styling techniques that are available.
The best thing you can do is to wait it out and let them grow for around 6 weeks.
Once you’ve reached this point, you can begin to measure them, style them, or visit a professional to determine what shape suits you best, and how you can keep them growing evenly.
