Beauty Inventions Do you know eyebrow wigs actually exist?

Now brows have been taking the spotlight for the last few months with eyebrow extensions.

Its fascinating how there is always a new option when it comes to improving your beauty looks.

The fact that 'brows on fleek', shaping of eyebrows, highlighting and the like, are trending at the moment, just makes this invention timely and unique.

Now brows have been taking the spotlight for the last few months with eyebrow extensions.

We think the beauty gods finally smiled down on those few women who do not have full brows or totally lost all their brows either from curiosity or cancer and other hair related illnesses.

"Cancer affects all hair; you have to think about lashes, body hair, nose hair, and eyebrows," explained Andrew DiSimone, owner of HairPlace NYC.

Andrews salon has specialized in hair replacement systems for the last 15 years, and last year he started offering eyebrow wigs.

"It's just a miniature version of what we were doing with wigs." He says.

While they are most helpful for women with very sparse brows, it would also work well for those who have none to speak of.

Surprisingly, the faux arches are unrecognizable to most. They just look like you had your brows filled in with dark pencil.

In the end, the eyebrow wigs have become a time-saving and cost-effective solution.

One set of arches costs $95 and lasts up to six months, a price equivalent to the spoolie brush, creams, gels, and powders you may have invested in your eyebrow essentials arsenal.

DiSimone provides three different arches in four hair color shades each (for a total of 12 possible wigs).

Each individual human hair is injected into a clear, skin-like polymer base. The base is a mix of polyurethane and silicone and feels a lot like a thin layer of rubber.

While some of the clear base is visible through the hair, you can easily cover up the polymer using a brow pencil.

Although you can have your eyebrow wigs professionally fixed, you can also apply at home with the adhesive and a chisel-tip sponge.


First, you want to exfoliate the skin to remove any dead skin and oils from the surface.

Similar to applying false lashes, you want to swipe the glue directly to the back of the wig then allow it to dry.

While the adhesive sets, use an eyeliner pencil to mark where you want the brows to begin.

Hold the pencil in a straight line along the side of the nose.

To get the most natural-looking placement, align the pencil with the bridge rather than the nostrils.

Once the glue has dried clear, place the wig over your natural hair.

Apply pressure to secure the wig and remove any bubbles.

The entire process takes about 15 minutes.

No your eyebrows will not fall off and you can go about your normal beauty routines without fear.

DiSimone recommends that you avoid acid peels and oil-based products, which can weaken the glue.


To remove them, you can use a Q-tip dipped in an oil-based makeup remover to slowly peel the wigs away from the innermost corner to the fine-point ends.

Make sure to remove the wigs in the same direction as the hair growth, otherwise you will wax off your natural arches.

Once the faux arches are removed, you can easily wipe away the excess glue, shampoo the hair with your fingertips, and reapply.

The same pair can be used for up to six months.

So, for women who don't have brows to begin with, we think this is an amazing alternative. The wigs appear natural and require very little maintenance.

#Eyebrowsonfleek just got a whole lot easier to achieve.
