Who says brunettes can’t have blonde eyebrows? These celebrities say otherwise!
Global Pinterest searches for bleached eyebrows are up a huge 150% since the start of the month after debuting as the “it brow” of Paris Fashion Week. Very haute couture.
The latest to drop on the trend is singer, actress and now beauty mogul Ariana Grande, who just posted a stunning picture for her 322 million Instagram followers, revealing her new bleached brows, undeniably in preparation for her role as Glinda the Good Witch in the upcoming movie, Wicked.
But whether you rock a completely bleached-out brow or have your brows lifted by just a few shades – it’s safe to say that the brow bleaching trend is going nowhere.
We asked Lead Brow Stylist at HD Brows, Jamie Long, how dark brunette women can rock the perfect bleached brow look:
Brow bleaching is something professionals can do to your brows to lift them a few shades lighter, or completely eliminate the colour to give that fashion forward ‘browless’ look. We’re used to seeing bleached brows on the runway, but with the likes of Kendall Jenner and Lizzo sporting the look more recently, people are wanting to recreate these looks and get creative with their appearance.
The bleached brow trend is definitely a bold/brave look – we see it gracing the runways and it always turns heads. A more wearable day-to-day look is bleaching the brows to lift them just a few shades. Women with darker hair might be a bit apprehensive about bleaching their brows fully. But there are ways to complement dark hair that lets them have a taste of the trend. We recommend asking your local professional beautician to lift your brows just one or two shades to give you a taste of the trend.
It might not be the bleached brow look we have seen on the runway – however, lightening just a few shades can help soften the overall appearance of your brows and you can then go even lighter should you feel like taking the plunge.
You can rock any brow look you want. With bleached brows, there are so many looks you can create; it’s not just about the completely bleached out look. For the bold and confident, the bleached out brow works with any hair colour. If you don’t feel quite ready to go for such a change to your brow look, try going just a few shades lighter and see what you think. It’s a bold style and something you might choose to rock for a big occasion.
Is DIY An Option?
It might seem quite simple and straightforward to bleach your brows after watching a TikTok, but we would advise against this and always recommend visiting a professional. The bleaching process will not only pull the brows to a warm yellow, red or orange tone, but will also dry the brows out and potentially cause skin irritation if not used correctly. Your local beautician will be able to give you the brow transformation you want without any DIY disasters.
Are There Any After-care Tips To Maintaining Bleached Brows?
Aftercare for brow bleaching is vital. Imagine bleaching your hair and then not using conditioner! Using products such as the HD Brows Brow Miracle Daily Conditioner will help keep the brows conditioned, hydrated and feeling healthy and smooth. For an extra hydration boost, use the HD Brows SOS Rescue Brow Balm as an overnight brow mask (yes that’s a thing).
