  1. Don't pluck

    While unplucked brows can look unkempt, they are a necessary step on the road to fuller eyebrows. For people with particularly thin eyebrows, it may take up to a year of growth to achieve the optimal shape.

  2. Exfoliate

    Try using a toothbrush to exfoliate the skin under and around the brows. Brows that are thin as a result of over-plucking can be stimulated into growth by exfoliation.

  3. Use a brow serum

    Brow and lash serums can be used to grow thicker brows faster. They're usually infused with peptides, which increase the anagen cycle and promote the growth of new hair. Try Mary Kay’s Lash and Brow Building Serum or Indeed’s Peptalash.

  4. Use brow powder

    Brow powder and pencils are a great way to enhance brows that haven't finished growing out. Use a light pencil or powder to enhance the thick areas. Then take a darker pencil or powder and fill in any spots that are sparse or thin. Blend the two tones together with a brush, and finish the look with a brow gel.
