Just like eyelash extensions, the process for eyebrow extensions requires a brow expert applying small amount of synthetic hair to existing hair or the skin using adhesive glue and tweezers. The expert will then assess the best brow shape for your face. The next step would be the “build out” to achieve a natural look, so the expert places them in varying sizes and degrees of thickness in a pattern that looks real.

The after care is similar to eyelash extensions, which is a 24-hour no-water zone because it can weaken the adhesive after which you are free to wash your face, apply makeup, and go on with your daily activities. To keep it long lasting it is advisable to stay away from oil-based products, which can break down the glue. The extensions last between 2 and 3 weeks, with a longer duration if they were applied to your own existing hairs, and a slightly shorter duration if they were applied directly to the skin. The hairs fall out naturally, not in one giant clump, so you wouldn’t have to worry about an embarrassing half-brow situation. Also, like with eyelash extensions, you can go back for “fills” that cost less and take a shorter amount of time than the original application.
