Carine Roitfeld's Eyebrows

Do You Dye Your Eyebrows To Match Your Hair?

Over the weekend at the Cannes Film Festival, French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld arrived at the Dolce and Gabbana party with thick, dark eyebrows that contrasted with her fair hair. It's obvious by her roots that she's not a natural blonde, and she isn't one to take a high-maintenance look anyway. But most colorists, while lifting a woman's base color, would lighten her brows as well to create uniformity. What do you think of this look? When you change your hair color, do you change your brow color, too?

My eyebrows and lashes are naturally very dark and I have natural blonde hair. My eyebrows are groomed though unlike hers..

I have light brown eyebrows so they look okay with any haircolor. I would never dye them red like I do my hair because that is just really unnatural looking.

For starters this is prob not the most flattering picture of her, but none the less she still looks chic to me. And you can def tell she is french, just by looking at her. Yes it wouldn't hurt her to run some tweezers through those brows but you can tell that she owns her look and in my book thats most important.

Other. That would be dependant on the color of the hair. i.e. Just because you have blonde hair doesn't mean you should have blonde eyebrows ( washed out?) may want to opt for a light brown.

Oh heavens. How does she work at Vogue, in France of all places, looking like that?! I would think she couldn't even get through the door with her eyebrows looking that way!

I have dark eyebrows so I keep my hair dark. I won't go more than one shade lighter than my natural color.

I picked other, because in the past I have dyed my eye brows. But not because I have dyed my hair. I am a natural redhead (more strawberry blonde than flame red) and I have extremely light/hard to see eyebrows. So for a while I was dying them to match my natural colour and give my face some definition. Now I just use makeup to colour them when I want to.

i have platinum hair with black on the ends, and I dye my brows black to match half my hair, so both for me! I hate it when women are disgusted with anything but blase mainstream beauty--you all look the same!!! How is uniformity beautiful to so many? Maybe I look "trashy", but at least I don't look like every soccer mom with a scowl and an SUV her husband paid for! lol

I'm a natural blonde with much darker eyebrows. My hair changes colour depending on the season (anywhere from golden blonde to strawberry blonde, to dark golden blonde). I started dying my hair so it doesn't look so multi-tonal and decided to dye my eyebrows just a little lighter than their natural shade. I actually have fewer people ask me if I dye my hair now than I did when I was au natural (back then EVERYONE would ask me if i coloured my hair). I really like having my eyebrows slightly lighter, especially for the summer. It brightens my face and my eyebrows are rather dramatic so I don't have to worry about them disappearing.

amylyn, i just do it with the hairdye with which im dying my hair, i'm not sure if this is the proper way to do it, but it works. only you dont have to process them for as long i want to dye my hair very light blonde, but my eyebrows are black. i've lightened them to a brown but everyone here at beauty school keeps telling me it wouldn't look good to have pale blonde hair and dark black/brown eyebrows, while i've seen it done and i think it looks great!

Ok, I have brown eyebrows and blonde hair. I was under the impression that you could not dye your brows! Who do I go to in order to get this done??? While it's not a major difference color wise, and I don't think it looks that bad I would love to have my brows one or two shade lighter! How do I do this?

that is one of the scariest pictures i have ever seen in my life. I don't die my hair anymore, but when i used to, i never did anything so drastic that my eyebrows looked funny

I use a tinted brow gel. It gives me the perfect color to go with my hair. :)

I have to have my eyebrows dyed or you can not see them at all!

I don't dye my hair so I don't dye my brows. If I were to dye my hair I wouldn't stray too far from my natural colour since I love it anyways! I think it's dangerous to dye your brows. And in Carine's case, I don't think the hair colour suits her, so she should just go back to brunette and not worry about her brow colour!

She's beautiful and has her own style. I haven't dyed my brows, but I could try it..

my eyebrows are darker than my hair, and i KNOW i dont look as bad as she does! although i think it may be the dirty hair and oily face that does her in, not so much the color of her eyebrows.

I think she needs a good pair of tweezers more so than a dye job. I do not dye my eyebrows and personally I think brows should be a little bit darker than your haircolor, if not the same naturally, to properly frame and highlight your eyes. Bleach blonde hair with black eyebrows is definately a no-no, but I wouldn't like to see bleach blonde brows either, ack. NOT TO MENTION, using any level of peroxide to lift the color of your brows is a big no-no and I tsk tsk any stylist who does it! Using chemical agents that close to your eyes is very dangerous and uncomfortable! The solution here is not to stray too far from any believable color when coloring your hair. :)

I used to dye my eyebrows red when I dyed my hair red, I really liked the effect. When I was a blond, I kept my dark eyebrows, and I liked that effect too. Now I'm back to my natural medium brown with dark eyebrows, and I like it! But I'm easy to please!
