AWFUL natural eyebrows - help?!?!?! Watch

    Ok so I know this should really be in the fashion and beauty forum but I wanted to post anonymously so yeah..... basically I need some help with my eyebrows. Here are the monsters (note that this is them AFTER brushing them - they look even worse if I leave them alone entirely):


    Attachment 557865


    They're very coarse, wiry, curly and patchy, they have weird kinks in them so they don't flow smoothly, they look nothing like each other, and they're basically just really awful... I fill them in every day but I'm sick of it and I just want to have nice natural eyebrows. I've never had them threaded or waxed or anything, but I'm not sure how much that would even help as they'd still be curly and wiry and horrible. Is there anything I can do?!?! I just can't stand them anymore, I spent hours last night crying about it. (Which probably sounds really stupid and dramatic but they honestly make me feel so ugly.)

    What about getting a semi-permanent eyebrow make up which is basically like a realistic tattoo on your eyebrows that last for about 1-2 years. My mother's friend has it. Try applying oils such as coconut oil to them as I heard that it helps.

    Do you think threading would really help? For some reason I've convinced myself that the shape of my eyebrows, especially my left one, is so screwed up that even threading or waxing or whatever wouldn't help... but maybe I'm wrong. Unfortunately I don't live near a benito brow bar.... do you happen to know anywhere good in Surrey? Guildford maybe? (You probably live nowhere near me but just in case!! )

    That semi-permanent thing sounds cool but I'm not sure I'd wanna do it myself... but yeah I've heard that oils help too so I think I'll try that. I have olive oil at home, would that work? I think I heard that you can use olive oil on hair and eyebrows somewhere? Anyway thanks for the advice!

    Well I think I'll give threading a go then! I hope the lady won't have to make them too thin to sort out the shape, because I still want them to be thick but just less messy!! Ah don't worry, I wasn't expecting you to know... I'll do a lil bit of research.

    Sure, you can apply it on to your hair and eyelashes as well!
    I found this on internet -

    ''Being rich in vitamin E, olive oil can help your eyebrow hair grow faster and thicker. It will also help keep it dark-hued. Massage your eyebrows with warm olive oil for 5 minutes before going to bed. Leave it on overnight, then rinse it off with warm water the next morning for the best result.''
