Overplucked Brows - Hair Removal - iVillage Beauty Body Spa

Over-plucked eyebrows will grow back if you haven't destroyed the papilla, or root, of the hair follicle by excessive tweezing. The myth that you've ruined your eyebrows forever is based on the fact that these hairs have a very brief active growing phase, which is why the hairs remain so short. It takes about eight weeks for eyebrow hairs to grow back, so proceed with caution when tweezing. Pluck one hair at a time in the direction of hair growth and work slowly to keep your eyebrows well shaped.
