    Default Lightening eyebrows?

    My eyebrows have gotten really dark, and now look too thick even though they aren't. I know it's silly, but it has been bothering me, especially since my hair is brownish/reddish, and the dark eyebrows clash with it (honestly , they make my natural hair colour look fake lol).

    Anyone have any tips on how to lighten my eyebrows?

    I'd really suggest going to a salon, because lightening your eyebrows will involve using bleach around your eyes. You don't want to accidentally blind yourself in the pursuit of the perfect brow.

    I second this! This is not a do-it-yourself project. Are you sure you don't like them dark? Try this-use a bar of soap & scrub over them,letting the soap suds dry. Are you sure?? This will blank them out enough for you to see...

    Thanks for the replies. I kind of was looking for a do-it-at-home-trick, but you guys are right, brows shouldn't be handled by amateurs. I remember a few years ago, there was this girl in my class that accidentally waxed off half her eyebrows.

    On some of the makeover shows I've seen them use regular facial hair bleach. You leave it on for something like 30 seconds? I'm with the others though-- go to a salon. Probably very inexpensive and will save you a lot of trouble in the end.

    I like the contrast of a darker brow, have you just tried shaping them properly?

    I have naturally blonde hair and black eyebrows--it looks ridiculous. I lighten my eyebrows at home with Joleen bleach cream. It's simple and inexpensive.

    ^ blonde and black, your eyebrows grow a mix of those two colors naturally?

    I have naturally blonde hair and my eyebrows are nearly brown.

    Eyebrows are supposed to be a couple shades darker than your hair--they help frame your face And your combination seems aout right to me--or did you color your hair red & the brows don't match at all?

    You may want to be careful if you have reddish hair, even if going to a salon. Your brows could end up orange.

    You can actually have them "thinned out" too just so they don't look as dark--it may be the less severe option.

    Jolene bleach is the secret... 5mins is all it takes for mine, and i'm a medium brown naturally. it's totally safe, quick and easy.
