How to Solve 5 Eyebrow Problems
Problem: Gray Hair
Comb the errant gray hair upward using a brow brush.
Cut off the gray as close to the root as possible using a pair of brow scissors and being careful not to snip any of its normal-colored neighbors. “When you trim a gray hair, it makes it less noticeable ― it blends into the rest of the brow,” says brow specialist Ramy Gafni .
To camouflage further, Nives Riddles, a makeup artist at the Rescue Rittenhouse Spa, in Philadelphia, suggests using a noncreamy tinted brow gel, which will add light color and hold the rest of the hairs in place over the gray stubble.
Whatever you do, don’t pluck it out. No, not because 20 more will grow back in its place, but because you risk tweezing too much. If you pull out every gray you see, you’ll eventually wind up with bald spots or misshapen brows.
