How to Prevent Eyebrow Hair From Pointing Up

Unruly eyebrows may be a problem for both women and men. You may have a few stray hairs that point up, or you may have many hairs that point in different directions. When your eyebrow hair refuses to stay flat and smooth, you can quickly tame it as part of your daily grooming ritual.

Step 1

Use an eyebrow brush or a hard-bristled toothbrush to brush your eyebrows up and outward. Do this a few times until most of your eyebrow hair is smoothed down.

Step 2

Apply a brow-taming wax or gel product. You can usually find these in stores that sell cosmetics. If the product you choose comes with a brush applicator, brush it through your brows. Otherwise, rub the product over your brow with your finger and run the toothbrush back over the hair to smooth it down.

Step 3

Trim or pluck any strays that are particularly stubborn. You will likely get good results from your brow-taming product without removing hair, but if you have one or two hairs that refuse to stay down or a long hair that stands out, consider pulling it out with tweezers or trimming it shorter.
