A person can lighten their eyebrows by applying a small amount of cream hair bleach to both eyebrows with a cotton swab, leaving it on for one to two minutes, wiping it off with a warm washcloth and applying a hair coloring product. A hair stylist can perform the treatment.
When lightening eyebrows at home, use care to avoid chemicals dripping into the eyes. Brunettes and blonds with dark eyebrows may like lighter eyebrows, but redheads and blonds with light eyebrows have eyebrow shades that usually don't need to be lightened. According to StyleList, eyebrows shouldn't be lightened by more than a few shades, as their color must contrast with the skin.
