There is no doubt that full and thick brows are what is all the rage right now. Thick, gorgeous, and sassy brows can really make a statement and really bring your whole look together. We’ve seen them on all of our Instagram feeds, however, as trends come and go, it’s important to embrace your natural brows as well. So if you have thick or thin brows, you are just as impressive. But if you want to get in on the bold trend for fluffy brows, there are a few methods that can promote hair growth or give the appearance of thicker brows. So if you don’t have naturally bushy eyebrows, don’t worry and check out the guide below.
Read on for tips on how to make your brows look fuller.
1. Try hair growth serums
If you find that your eyebrow hair is struggling to grow back on its own, it could be due to damage to the hair follicle. This can happen due to pinching or continual pulling of the hair from its roots. This is where eyebrow hair growth serums come in handy. These serums work to stimulate the growth of eyebrow hair using peptides, or short chains of amino acids, that help promote healthy hair follicles.
However, it should be noted that when it comes to hair growth, in this case, patience is key. No matter what product you use, it is not magic and it will not grow overnight. You will have to use it regularly to see an increase over time.

2. Use facial oils
A good oil, although not marketed as a brow product, has key ingredients that can stimulate hair growth and nourish the skin. Massaging them is also believed to increase circulation while stimulating cells. In fact, you may already have some of these oils as part of your skincare routine. A popular ingredient used is castor oil. All you need to do is apply it with a spool brush in the direction of natural hair growth. Just do all of this before you go to bed and let it work while you sleep.
Other oils rich in vitamin E and fatty acids, which are known to stimulate hair growth are; coconut oil, olive oil, and even avocado oil.

3. Try to dye
Sometimes just filling in the brows or letting go of the tweezers is not enough. In this case, why not try the popular brow treatment to transform them? There are tons of options to choose from, but the most common method is staining. It is minimally invasive and a great option if you are tired of filling in your brows every day. Done fairly quickly, it can last between one and three months, depending on hair growth. It’s especially great as it picks up even the smallest hair which, when darkened, helps make brows look thicker, more defined, and well-groomed. Also, when the color fades, it does so naturally so it doesn’t look like a spotty mess.

4. Remove the clamps
If you really want to stimulate hair growth, you need to put those clips on for a while. Our brows grow on a three to four month cycle, so try to separate from your trusty tweezers for at least 12 weeks. After marking, only tweeze hairs that are far from the brow line.

5. Use tinted eyebrow gels
Eyebrow tinted gels are one of the easiest ways to give the appearance of thicker, bolder brows. Use the built-in wand to fill in your brows from the front to the browbone, and then keep filling all the way. You can fill in the gaps and add some volume, dimension, and give it that desired shape.

6. See a specialist
At the end of the day, if you can’t figure it all out, go to a knowledgeable brow specialist. If you have access to an expert or dermatologist, it is worth consulting with them for guidance on how to keep your brows happy and full. Also, even if you go for a dedicated brow bar, they can better understand how you want your brows to look and carefully sculpt them.
