    unless you've been under a rock eyebrows are totally in :cool:

    I stopped plucking mine like it's 1996 in october last year, am only allowing myself to pluck every 2 months and nowhere near my actual shape and they are coming :cool:

    I'm hoping the fine baby hairs at the front that looks like vellus hair but I don't think it is, I'm hoping that after it sheds the follicles will be all 'come on lads we can grow here again'

    fuck all them bitches at school what bullied me about my massive eyebrows, fuck drew barrymore, gwen stefani and pamela anderson :mad:

    what else do I do, I rub castor oil in em when I can be arsed cus its high in good shit to make hair grow, I take these fucking awful hair and nails beauty complex pills, but they are vile, so that ain't as often as one would like - really gotta sort this out

    to fill em in I use brow liner gel by Inglot which is like the dipbrow pomade by anastasia, but cheaper, the tiniest little bit with an angled liner brush

    I also bought something called wunderbrow which seems good, but is a bit difficult to use, so wouldn't recommend that one

    people now are saying that if you have dark hair your eyebrows should be two shades lighter than hair - I call bullshit on that and say eyebrows should always be the darkest hair on the face we need em for communication init :cool:

    whats yer eyebrows doing?

    My eyebrows are also still recovering from the 90s. I fill them a bit with a sleek kit while muttering sisters not twins.

    Mine were shit in the 90s and they're shit now. They're blonde - they were barely worth plucking in the first place.

    My Mum's have completely disappeared. At first it was funny coz I could say "you must be very surprised" and laugh in my sleeve. But it's not funny now that it's only a matter of time for mine too...

    I was thinking 2015 in Loughborough. I expect that might be the same as 1995 down south ;)

    I've got small eyebrows. I definitely over plucked them in the nineties but they did fill back out to their original size. The shape is not great but in order to shape them I'd lose a lot of bulk. I wish mine were bigger :(

    seriously leave them for 4 months and rub (gently) cold pressed castor oil into em every night, exfoliate em too cus it keeps the follicles clear :cool:

    oh and take biotin twice a day

    if you really want to try making them come back

    I prefer a vintage arched brow - not dietrich-skinny, but slim and arched. However like most women over forty, they're getting a bit sparse. I can't lie - I like the new situation of not having to pluck more than every five or six months, but I am worried about the slim tails becoming invisible.

    Mine have never grown back, I've not plucked them for over a year. I use a very sharp eyebrow pencil and kinda sketch them in to fill them out a bit more

    Mine went when I went gray - but they were fair to start with. I draw them back in with the extremely cheap MUA Luxe Power Brow in Fair (£3) as it's the only one I've found that isn't a weird colour for pale people.

    I've never plucked, threaded or in any other way touched my eyebrows. It's nice to know my laziness is currently in. :cool:

    i want to cry sometimes when i think back to the time i first plucked my eyebrows in the 90's. If I could rewind time, that's definitely one of thing I would NEVER do. My eyebrows never grew back normally after that first plucking - there's hardly anything left of them atall now and what is left just looks silly :( It's SUCH a massive pain having to fiddle around with eyebrow pencil shading every bloody morning :mad: I envy every single person with lovely thick eyebrows.

    I think I'm quite lucky to have been too clueless to pluck my eyebrows in the 90s. Also lucky to have thick black brows, so no filling required, just a bit of reshaping in the arch and breaking up the werewolf join.

    I have to remove the odd crazy feeler now and again, but generally leave well alone.
    Don't really like an overly-plucked eyebrow on a lass meself, either, quite like strong thick eyebrows.

    friendofdorothy it is so much worse than Thatcherism now

    Mine were always so fair as to be near invisible. In my younger days used to paint them pink or red, or sometime blue. When I hit my early thirties I thought I'd better stop and pencil them a more conventional pale brown.

    I still do them bright red to match my lippy occasionally. Its amazing how many people don't even notice.

    I had a dog called Dennis, because his eyebrows were just like that.

    As a bloke, I would not dream of plucking my eyebrows. To me eyebrows are a vital part of facial expression, I am even careful as to what glasses I get so people can still see all of my eyebrows over them. When I get my hair cut I do get excess length hairs trimmed though.
