    Ok, so my eyebrows have never been fantastic but they've been annoying me more than ever so I thought I'd turn to TSR. Basically, one eyebrow is quite nice and normal but the other just isn't - the shape's fine and everything but the hairs in the (argh, don't know how to explain).. bit nearest the other eyebrow...(the thicker bit?) stick up instead of, like the other eyebrow, horizontally flowing into the rest of my eyebrow. As a result this eyebrow looks pretty **** so I was wondering of there was anything I could do to get it looking better. (Also, you'd think that the hairs would grow longer and fold down...but they don't seem to do so).

    I've just re-read that and realise that it makes no sense but I really can't think of a (better) way of phrasing it. Thanks.

    Get them done professionally. Threading gives a nice shape and will sort out your problem most likely.

    I have this problem! What I do is cut the sticky-up bits to the length of the rest. I often pencil them in a little bit at the ends, as well. Rimmel do a good one.

    Pretty much this. It's kind of annoying, but guess it's just the way the hair grows.

    I have one eyebrow that does that, so I just brush it upwards, then snip off the tips that need it. Then brush it all back again and it should all lie flat like your other brow.

    Someone said to me once that your eyebrows should be thought of as 'sisters' rather than 'twins', i.e. they are similar but no matter how hard you try they'll never be exactly the same. So there's not much you can do if the hair growth is different, but you can trim the ends of the hairs on the eyebrows that sticks up and then pencil in any gaps with an eyebrow pencil.
