Woman’s eyebrow transplant grows out of control
A woman has revealed how she has to regularly trim her eyebrows after getting a hair transplant.
Haley Sellers shared her story on TikTok, where she’s known as @haleypaigesabine.
Growing up, Hayley said that she had really fair eyebrows and never really experimented with putting makeup on them until she was in high school.
She said: “I told my mum I wanted my eyebrows done because they were a little bit wild, a little bit crazy.
“She told me to just tweeze them myself. So that’s what I did.
“I tweezed them, I tried looking up images to try to do it, I didn’t know what I was doing.
“It became this really bad habit of plucking my eyebrows every time I would see a long hair.”
She did this for a couple of years or so before she decided to get microblading – a cosmetic procedure that involves a needle inserting pigment under the skin to give the look of natural eyebrows.
“Before my surgery I got micro-blading, but the cr***y thing about this is that it only lasted me a week.
“Then I went to get a touch-up, lasted me a week. So then I started drawing on my eyebrows again.”
But then her dad came home one night and told her he had a surprise for her.
“So then I opened it and it was an eyebrow picture and it said ‘Baby got brows back,’ so I was like ok, confused, what is this.
“He was like, ‘You’re gonna get eyebrows’,” Haley said.
Still confused, Haley replied: “I was like: “What do you mean?”
“He’s like you’re gonna get a hair transplant to your eyebrows.”
“I was so scared, the morning of my surgery I was terrified,” she shared.
“So they took this much of my hair,” Haley said as she showed where her hair had been cut from her head.
“They cut out a piece of my scalp, it goes from my ear to the middle of my head.” She said, touching the back of her head.
“They took out the piece of the scalp and they sewed me back up and they took the hair follicles out of my scalp and they implanted them into my face.”
Now she has to trim them regularly to keep them in check
