Most redhead eyebrows are fair and coarse eyebrows, and this makes it even more difficult to find the right eyebrow product. There are pencils, gels, pens, powders, palettes, pomades and many different tools (like spoolie brushes, highlighters, etc). So, it can be incredibly overwhelming to attain beautiful, shaped redhead brows.

Did you hear that How to be a Redhead launched their first eyebrow gel?! It’s called Finally Have Brows®. In shade Universal Red, all redheads can use this shade!

Here is everything else you need to know about getting gorgeous redhead brows:

Shaping

The first tip is to find an eyebrow professional to help with shaping. You don’t want to over tweeze at home and a professional can help with the perfect shape for your face. Once you get the shape you want, it gets easier to decide which beauty product is best for you.
