Q & A with the Jess

How long does it take to grow brows back after a bad wax or over plucking?

Make a pact with yourself for this year, no more BAD BROWS…because the answer to this question is not so 'cut and dry.' You should always wait around a month between shapings, as a full hair growth cycle is around 28 days. BUT... after a particularly bad shaping, it could take 3-6 months to fully get back to where you were pre brow disaster! This period of time can become considerably longer, depending on how long the hair you are trying to grow back has been being removed. For example: If you have been rocking pencil thin brows since that nail salon tragedy circa 1998, well you could have up to a year of hard work and self restraint ahead of you. Be patient. If all else fails, we have growth serum Boom Boom Brow Job!

Is it true that sometimes brow hair won’t grow back at all?

Yes and no - if you remove the same hairs for a long period of time, the hair follicle can become damaged, which can slow down or stop growth. Try not to worry too much if you get one bad shaping, it usually takes multiple disasters to cause damage. Just stalk the girl at work with perfect brows and ask her where she goes…you wouldn't get a budget nose job, right? So think of your brow specialist like a surgeon. 

If there is a mishap, what should the plan be?

Give yourself three weeks lead-time to grow your brows in before your first shaping. But prepare yourself, if you have been tweezing a lot along the way, all of those hairs are going to be on separate growth cycles. So, that first few weeks can feel really wild! But the more hair you have grown in, the more hair gets removed at the same time, the longer your shape will last and the faster you will see results!
