Kate Middleton Sparks Eyebrow Thickening Trend
The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton has sparked a new trend of thick eyebrows, as its reported thousands of women are seeking eyebrow-thickening treatments.
This autumn’s hottest make-up trend is big and bold brows, thanks to emerging style icon Kate Middleton. Women are said to be desperate to replicate the duchesses’ full yet immaculately pruned brows, getting rid of the over-plucked and thin look.
Top London based cosmetic surgery clinic, Harley Street have witnessed a dramatic rise in the number of patients deciding to undergo their expensive non-invasive eyebrow hair implant surgery, since the highly televised royal wedding last April.
The transplant surgery involves taking hair from behind the patient’s hair, before planting it into their brow. Whilst the procedure costs a whooping $3,000, hair restoration expert Dr Raghu Reddy insists it’s the perfect solution for those with over-plucked brows.
Speaking of the popular surgery Dr Reddy explained, it is not just women with thin brows who are requesting the hair implant treatment: “We have a healthy stream of women who come into the clinic and undergo the treatment. While I do have patients who come to me who have over-plucked their brows, I also have women who come in with perfectly normal eyebrows, who are looking for a thicker, fuller brow to rival the likes of Kate Middleton.”
Meanwhile those looking for a cheap alternative to the pricey surgery, eye make-up brand Eye Candy has the solution. The company has released a new gel serum, which enhances the appearance and length of eyebrows. This means women no longer need to try and thicken their brows with an eyebrow pencil.
Make-up artists are said to have already highly praised the product, which promises to strengthen and thicken both eyelashes and eyebrows within four weeks.
The special ingredients, which make the brow-booster work, are natural seaweed extracts: Laminaria, Digitata and Pelvetia Canaliculata, which stimulate hair growth.
