I have very dark black eyebrows and my hair is naturally light brown. I want to dye my hair a lighter shade of brown or blonde but my eyebrows already stick out as it is. What would I use to dye my eyebrows or lighten them. Does the facial hair lightener work for eyebrows too? Help!

If you want your brows lighter the best thing to do is to go to a professional. You could use regular hair dye on them, but if they are dark and you try to lighten them yourself they may turn out orange. I lightened my brows once to match my hair color and hated the results because they blended too well and gave no definition to my face-have you thought about tweezing them or getting them waxed to make them thinner so the contrast between your hair color and your brow color is less noticeable? whatever you decide good luck!

Go to a professional. Don't ever do these things by yourself when you don't know what you're doing. I'd suggest you dye your hair before you mess around with your brows. The technician can give you the proper shade to go with your hair (not matching of course, since your brow and hair color aren't suppose to be the same shade).
