    I've just dyed my eyebrows, but I think I've gone a tad too dark as they look bushy.

    What can I do to make them look less bushy? I know the Dye lasts for quite a while, and I don't want to look like I've got a couple of bloody Caterpillars crawling across my face.

    :confused:

    I think that needs professional help - maybe an eyebrow threading

    Ahh that's okay then. I wouldn't have expected many males to use eyebrow dye. Anyway use a shampoo containing a lauryl sulphate (usually sodium or ammonium lauryl sulphate). These are the strongest primary detergents and will help to strip the colour. Use a shampoo containing laureth sulphates for something slightly less harsh if you're worried it'll fade completely, and just be careful not to get it in your eyes.
    (This is what you would do if you wanted to fade your hair dye colour, but I'm assuming the same thing will work for eyebrow dye.) Continue to do this every day until the colour has faded to how you want it. Remember that these are harsh detergents so you shouldn't normally use these types of shampoo every day, especially not on your head.

    They look fine to me - probably just look odd to you as you're used to them looking different.

    I think you should check out with the beautician.
