Eyebrows have been taking centre stage in the beauty world in recent years.
After the thin straight lines that were de rigueur in the 90s, these days bigger brows are back.
From the strong, dark and defined look, as popularised by actresses Lily Collins and Cara Delevingne, to the face-framing feathery texture sported by the likes of Jodie Comer. (The ever-popular Jodie even graced the top spot in Vogue’s Top Eyebrow Trends.)
But what if you’re weren’t blessed with naturally beautiful brows like Lily, Cara or Jodie, or if the overplucking of past decades has left you with less definition than you would like?
Fear not, because when it comes to new trends in the beauty world, there’s a mighty multi-billion pound industry on hand to help you achieve it.
For example, if you’re looking for DIY solutions, there are many hair-thickening products available, with science increasingly harnessing the power of nature to help us compensate for whatever we weren’t born with.
There are also armies of bloggers and specialists who can teach you techniques to make the most of what you’ve got, such as backcombing or clever artistry with an eyebrow pencil.
Or, for the seriously committed, you can opt for tints, extensions or even tattooing. (If you are tempted by the latter – just remember that trends and fashions do change!)
There’s also a lesser-known option that’s becoming an increasingly popular choice for many women, and like most beauty trends – the celebrities are setting the pace.
In a recent article on allure.com – Conde Nast’s prestigious online beauty magazine – actress Meagan Goode opened up about her brow challenges and how she has found a happy solution in the form of eyebrow transplants.
The Minority Report actress shared how she was unsatisfied with other options after her 90s plucking left her unable to achieve the dramatic look she loves.
So, she took the bold and beautiful step of an eyebrow transplant and is loving her look and looking fantastic.
Eyebrow transplant procedures have advanced greatly in recent years, thanks to some helpful technological developments, and they are no longer just for the rich and famous. Wimpole Clinic in London – an established and respected Harley Street hair transplant clinic – is seeing their eyebrow transplant service as an increasingly popular choice for men and women from all walks of life.
Not only can this option help you enjoy thicker, more defined eyebrows, which require less day-to-day maintenance or attention, it’s also an opportunity to get the eyebrow shape you’ve always wanted.
Even beyond following the latest beauty trends, having the eyebrows that shape your face the way you want can be both an emotional and psychological boost.
The new confidence and self-esteem that comes with feeling good about how you look can be truly life-changing.
Tracy Wilkinson, 51, from North-East Lincolnshire, chose an eyebrow transplant after overplucking and the stress of a family tragedy resulted in hair loss. For years, she had been living with thin brows that required daily pencilling and felt very self-conscious of her eyebrows and unhappy with her appearance.
After the simple procedure, Tracy now feels that her eyebrows are thicker than expected, the overall look even better than expected.
She says; “Your eyes and your eyebrows are one of the main focal points on your face, and not having to pencil them in, not having to reshape them…it’s going to mean the world to me. It’s going to make me so happy again.”
Modern eyebrow transplants are a straightforward process, that can provide subtle natural-looking results, the healthy full eyebrows that are associated with youth and beauty – particularly during today’s eyebrow trends. Plus, you can decide to go as dramatic or as understated as you like – you get to choose the perfect shape for your face and your lifestyle.
So, if you’re tired of time-consuming techniques, or other options have failed to offer you the look you want, you might find that a consultation with a reputable hair transplant clinic could be your secret to beautiful brows.
