Would You? Eyebrow Extensions

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 27 - 2014

If you didn’t pluck your eyebrows to death in the 90s, consider yourselves lucky.

You see, this is the problem with following trends and fashions… you take one look at Kate Moss’ skinny brows and think “right, better get to it!” and before you know it, Cara Delevigne walks into town and you’re left trying to superglue carpet offcuts to your forehead.

Thankfully, my brow story was fairly recoverable… I overplucked for sure, but not to the extent that there was no coming back.  It taught me a lesson though, I binned my magnifying mirror.  Those things are evil for tweezer-happy types, nobody needs to see their pores in that much detail anyway, not ever and if you’re going to proclaim near-blindness without them, for Pete’s sake… get a professional to do the job for you instead!

If, for you, there’s no return from those Pammy Anderson brow days you might be interested in a new brow technique that’s currently storming the salons.  Originally invented for cancer patients and alopecia sufferers, Faceframe 3D Eyebrows does for brows what eyelash extensions did for stubby peepers.

3D-brows-before-after

Like lash extensions, the Faceframe 3D Eyebrows last for a couple of weeks, and cost around £30 for a full length natural brow and £15 for infills (depending on individual salon prices).  The treatment takes around 45-60 minutes to complete for full brows and 15-30 minutes for a partial brow.  They’re the perfect inbetween solution for anyone a bit scared of going down the permanent makeup route.

The synthetic strands of mink are adhered to the eyebrow line using a skin-safe glue, they’re waterproof and moisture-proof, so are especially worth a look for anyone jetting off on low-maintenance holiday or attending an important event and wanting to look their best.

Would you consider something like this for a big event or even as a longer-term solution or does your brow pencil work just fine for you?

    Wowsers!!! I have never heard of this before and the results are amazing!!! I too was a willing participant in the 90’s over plucking look and it took forever to grow those stubborn brows back in. Thank you for the info and review!! :)

    I plucked my brows to death at many stages of my life, but nothing stops the buggers growing back. I even shaved them off once but they’re still there like badly behaved caterpillars. I’m glad this works for people whose brows never replenished. The results really are great.

    i really like the transformation on woman 1 and 2. Not so much on woman no.3 but having said that, woman no.3 looks a thousand better than some of the many transformations I have seen with semi permanent sharpie tattooed brows. my eyebrows too are looking more and more like pammy these days. I wish it was because I over plucked. For me, it’s just because i am getting old. not fair. I still need to lighten/pluck my moustache, but my eyebrows won’t grow anymore. xx

    I think they look pretty good- if my brows were that sparse, I’d definitely consider it but I’d probably end up going for the permanent makeup route if I liked it. Luckily I have thick brows that aren’t too hard to maintain, as if I were left to sort mine out with a brow pencil I’d probably have one halfway up my forehead and the other sloping off to my nose.

    I’m not so good with angles.

    The first ones look ridiculous but the later pictures really tempt me.

    Sparse blonde brows are a family heirloon it seems so I am always looking for ways to bulk mine out. I have the shape but not the volume.

    Off to google, for curiousity sake!

    I’m currently in the process of ‘growing out’ my eyebrows to rectify an over zealous plucking session, it’s a nightmare so yes I would definitely consider having this done! I like how natural they look, not too harsh, just gently defined.
