The quest for fuller brows is often paved with depilatory accidents. It’s happened to all of us: you’re trying to get your eyebrows symmetrical, you get a little overzealous with the tweezers or wax strips and suddenly your brows are way too thin. You’re left feeling like a particularly foolish plucked chicken—and you’re panicking a little, because eyebrows are notoriously difficult to regrow.
But relax: the damage likely isn’t permanent. Di Medlock, the director of waxing at Exhale Spa, knows everything there is to know about regrowing eyebrows and fixing major plucking mistakes.
“If a guest expresses and interest in growing their brows back, I put them on ‘the system,’” says Medlock. “It’s important to see what your brows are capable of producing without outside assistance. We allow the brows to grow with no tweezing, waxing or threading for four weeks. This will show me how much natural growth is possible, trouble spots and the willpower of my guest.”
We are nothing if not determined to step up our eyebrow game, so we’re ready for Di’s system. Here are Di’s professional secrets for getting fuller brows.
