3 cosmetic tips for after an eyebrow transplant

Eyebrows are one of the most important facial features. Thin brows or scar tissue along the brow may cause you to feel less confident in life. An eyebrow transplant is one of the best ways to enhance your natural beauty and regain your confidence.

Here are three cosmetic tips to follow after your eyebrow transplant:

1. Ditch the bangs

Why hide your beautiful new eyebrows behind a wall of hair? Ditch your bangs in favor of a hairstyle that frames your face. Consider a long, layered look with tapered ends to create an outline around your face's natural shape.

Allure magazine suggested a hairstyle that uses horizontal layers beginning at the collarbone, but keeps the layers long in front. It's a great look that makes it easy to tuck your hair behind your ears while retaining a voluminous shape.

2. Go for the candle-lit look

Now that you've given your new eyebrows some room to breathe, consider a style of eye makeup that will highlight your brows as well as your irises.

Here's how to achieve the look, according to Glamour magazine:

  1. Apply just a touch of brown eyeliner.
  2. Carefully brush on a shimmering shade of taupe over the upper eyelids, then apply more to the corner of the eyes for an added shadow, and finally add a touch to the lower eyelids.
  3. Apply a light layer of pink above the taupe.
  4. Complete the look by placing a small amount of shimmering gold to the inner corners of the eyes.

Other eye makeup styles that accentuate your new features include a thin cat eye, dark mod eyeshadow and bold, cool-toned eyeliner.

3. Comb and trim

It's important to remember that hair transplanted from your head is different from natural eyebrow hair. Dr. Marotta takes care to transplant hair so that it looks as natural as possible. In the months after your procedure, you may need to trim and comb your brows to retain the best look.

A small pair of scissors and an eyebrow comb are all you need to achieve the best results. Check with your doctor before plucking transplanted hair, as this could undo the work of the procedure.
