The last eight has seen a re-emergence of blackwork embroidery. As interest in blackwork grows, needlework magazines are featuring more blackwork charts and articles. The Eyebrow embroidery thus got born. Before newer techniques came on the scene, about the only way to get thick eyebrows was to pencil them in using tools such as eyebrow liners. The distinct advantage of this was the ability to change the style, slant, and color of the thick eyebrows, depending on the mood of the day. The disadvantage was, of course, that painted-on eyebrows did not look too natural, were temporary and troublesome to apply, and were nice and attractive only when viewed from a distance.
Different eyebrow embroidery methods
Birth of eyebrow tattooing
A more permanent way was to tattoo the eyebrows so that one could save oneself the trouble of having to spend hours trying to paint on sexy thick eyebrows which looked symmetrical and did not get smudged in the middle of your date. The disadvantage of this tattooing was again that the results were better-looking when viewing from a distance, and that close-up views of the tattooed eyebrows were not attractive, and tattooing was permanent. If you wanted to change your style, or suddenly decided that what you had was not what you wanted, it was tough luck mate.
The slightly less permanent eyebrow embroidery was a bit better in the sense that the more superficial tattoos created in this procedure to get seemingly thick eyebrows would tend to fade off after a few years, so you could change your styles if you wanted, but then only after a few years.
Enter the eyebrow transplants
This procedure has been hailed as one of the better inventions to help people look more attractive with better and thicker eyebrows that were completely natural. Eyebrow transplants essentially involve the removal of hairs from elsewhere in the body and implanting them into the eyebrow region, creating a new and better looking set of eyebrows. While the person with a hair transplant on the scalp is happy so long as his bald patch is covered, the person with the eyebrow transplant has her results showing on her face all the time, whenever she faces anybody. You just cannot hide your eyebrows! It is thus imperative that you choose your plastic surgeon well, and get a good aesthetic result from your eyebrow transplant.
During an eyebrow transplant procedure, a strip of coarse hair is harvested from the back of the scalp for men’s eyebrows, or above the ears for women’s eyebrows under local anesthesia. Careful postoperative care is needed to ensure the viability of the eyebrow transplant. With good care, a person can expect to have beautifully shaped new and natural thick eyebrows within about two months.
