Eyebrow Wigs? Yes, It’s a thing!
I have an obsession with eyebrows. I think they are one of the most expressive features on the human face. Back in the 90s when thin eyebrows were all the rage, I actually used to shave them off and got them tatooed instead. But now I have no eyebrows, so I am constantly looking for the latest and greatest eyebrow products out there to help me achieve a more natural looking brow. I have tried pencils, shadows and gels. But I’ve recently discovered eyebrow wigs and I am seriously blown away.
What are Eyebrow Wigs?
They are just like the name implies – wigs for your eyebrows. They have been using them on television and in movies forever but did you know they are also available for the general public?
I’ve watched a ton of YouTube videos about how to achieve natural “fake” eyebrows with the power of makeup. And these guys do a fantastic job of making drawn-on eyebrows look real, but I don’t want to spend an hour to do my makeup just to look like I have real eyebrows. Who has time for that?
But then I came across a video of this product called LashyBrows by Instabrow and I thought this might just be what I was looking for. So I contacted them via email and asked them if they would let me try out a sample in exchange for a video review and they kindly obliged.
What are LashyBrows?
“LashyBrows False-Brows are made with 100% human hair. They are the most natural looking and beautiful eyebrows in the market. Each eyebrow is individually hand sewn onto a realistic synthetic skin-like base for a natural, stunning and ravishing appearance. Our professional high quality false-brows conceals eyebrow hair loss and gives the appearance of real hair growing from the brow line. Designed for both men and women who have lost their eyebrow hair due to aging, alopecia, over plucking, cancer; or simply for those fashionistas who just want to change their look or color.” – Instabrow
That’s right. They are fake eyebrows with actual human hair! LashyBrows come in a wide variety of style, each named after a famous celebrity. They offer a bunch of different colors as well ranging from Dark Brown to Blonde. Check out the cool brow shapes available:
How do you Apply LashyBrow Eyebrow Wigs?
LashyBrows made with a long front so that you can trim them to fit your desired eyebrow length. But first you must determine how much you need to trim.
I explain the proper way to measure your brows in my my first video tutorial of how to apply the Instabrow Eyebrow Wigs in the Angelina shape below:
- After you cut your brows to the desired length and shape you like, you will want to wipe the area clean with alcohol, witch hazel, or Micellar water if you wish. The area you will be applying the brow must be clean and free from oil.
- Instabrow sells their own adhesive, but you can just use eyelash glue if you wish.
- You will need to completely cover the silicone back with the adhesive to ensure proper adhesion. I find that a small brush to apply the glue works best.
- I like to start by placing the brow on my face at the arch, then simply move the brow to the desired position on your face.
- Make sure to pat down all edges of the brows so that there are no gaps between your skin and the eyebrow wigs.
- Follow up with a light dusting of eyeshadow or pencil to fill in any gaps
- Enjoy your beautiful natural looking fake eyebrows!
What makes Instabrow LashyBrows Eyebrow Wigs different?
Because the brows have a silicone backing, they move with your face and all of your various expressions.
I have not tried sleeping in them, but LashyBrows False Brows can be worn for several days at a time without reapplying. However, if you plan to wear them for several days, they recommend spirit gum for longer wear. With proper care, LashyBrows False Brows can be removed, reapplied and reworn for up to 2-4 months.
Are LashyBrows Waterproof?
Wearing in the pool or shower is not recommended. The adhesive that holds the false brow may break down faster especially from chemicals like chlorine.
Can I Wear False Eyebrows if I Already have Eyebrow Hair?
As you may or may not have noticed, thick eyebrows are all the rage again. Yes, this was also a 90’s trend (before the thin brows were a thing) – remember Cindy Crawford? So many girls are trying to achieve that thick, bushy look right now.
You can use the LashyBrows to simply fill in where you want more hair, or you can completely cover a sparse thin eyebrow. Just keep in mind that the adhesive may stick to your natural brows so you need to carefully remove them to avoid pulling out your hair.
I’ve gotten so many comments on my videos about how people like me with the thicker brows. But I just can’t seem to get used to it. My eyes are so small and hooded, that I feel thick brows are too overpowering for me. In my 2nd video (with the Charlize style) I had to trim the brows down to a shape that I felt suited me more.

Fake Eyebrows FTW!
For those of us with no eyebrow hair, suffer from alopecia, or have lost your brows due to chemotherapy, this is definitely one of the most natural looking false eyebrows on the market. They even have a pair of fake eyebrows for men too!
They are definitely a cost effective solution to the gels and powders you can buy at the store and they are reusable. It’s a win-win!
