The Structure of the Eyebrows
The basic structuring of eyebrow hair is dramatic and eyebrow hair differs in anatomy from that of body and scalp hair. Eyebrow hair grows in a dramatic criss-cross pattern wherein it starts from closer to the nose and the hair points outward and upward, which as it gets above the eyes it changes its direction inward and downward and as it gets to the tip of it again changes direction to outward and downward. And it is this criss-cross pattern of hair that causes the middle portion of the brow to elevate with a natural density in the center of the brow on top of the eye.
The hair in the eyebrows grows individual strands instead of multiple hair follicles in an angle that lays flat in level with the skin contrary to body and scalp hair that grows in a erect angle taking off from the scalp surface.
