A major brow fail moment feels like a universal experience. Whether you over-plucked yours in the early aughts or some other misguided grooming attempt, the best eyebrow growth serums are known to work wonders for many looking to spur growth.
Certainly, though, sparse, thin brows can also arise genetically. “Our eyebrows undergo a decrease in density or fullness, a reduction in the number of eyebrow hairs, and thickening of hairs with age,” explains board-certified dermatologist Dr. Melanie Palm. She continues that more sudden changes to brow density can be caused by a variety of factors, from skin conditions like eczema, hormonal changes, diet deficiencies, or autoimmune disorders.
She notes that anyone tackling any of these concerns should consult their doctor for regrowth treatments or perhaps a prescription for Latisse (otherwise known as bimatoprost), which Palm describes as a “serum that can also treat some forms of eyebrow thinning by extending the hair growth cycle” though it is only FDA approved for eyelash growth. (Keep in mind though that use of Latisse can potentially result in skin darkening, irritation, dryness, and redness, so it’s best to consult with your dermatologist to understand the full risks.) Otherwise, there are over-the-counter options too that don’t require an appointment.
“The good news is, eyebrows can be encouraged to grow back, as long as the eyebrow follicles have not been permanently scarred,” notes Los Angeles-based dermatologist Dr. Jessica Wu. “This can be accomplished by using products with ingredients that stimulate the hair growth cycle.” For something similar to Latisse, Wu explains that “the best eyebrow growth products contain ingredients called ‘prostaglandin analogs’”—like bimatoprost.
Though Palm emphasizes that Latisse is the only product FDA-approved for hair regrowth, she recommends looking for “formulations that also include ingredients that promote the appearance of healthy hair follicles, like castor oil, peptides, hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, vitamin E, and proteins.” And as for results, Wu says you can see a difference in 4 weeks with significant growth by eight weeks though this will vary on the formula and is dependent on consistent use.
Below, the nine best eyebrow growth serums to consider to achieve your dream, full arches.
RevitaLash RevitaBrow Advanced Eyebrow Conditioner Serum
Both of our experts are fans of this RevitaLash serum, though Wu notes it is her favorite sans prescription. “My patients tell me that this works faster than Latisse for their brows,” she says of this non-irritating serum. “It comes with a doe foot applicator wand that makes it quick and easy to apply, so you don’t risk dripping liquid into your eyes.” Thanks to a blend of peptides, biotin, green tea extract, amino acids, and antioxidants, expect strengthened, conditioned brows over time.
NeuLash NeuBrow Brow Enhancing Serum
Palm, on the other hand, is also partial to this formula by NeuLash because it “contains proteins and other ingredients that help benefit the appearance of eyebrow hairs.” Just apply the formula to brows morning and night to allow the featured peptides, vitamins, and apple extract to replenish and revive your eyebrows in 4-6 weeks—according to the brand.
Vegamour Gro Brow Serum
Fans of Vegamour’s thickening shampoo and conditioner kit should consider its brow growth serum, too. The natural, vegan formula is powered by mung bean sprouts and red clover, which contain active phytomolecules, zinc, and biotin to promote thicker, fuller brows in 4-8 weeks with consistent use.
RapidLash RapidBrow EyeBrow Enhancing Serum
Pair RapidLash’s eyelash growth serum with its complementing eyebrow formula that’s powered by a cocktail of peptides, biotin, vitamin B5, and keratin, along with apple fruit cell and sweet almond extract. With this blend, expect not only enhanced fullness, but a healthy-looking shine and softness, too.
Grande Cosmetics GrandeBROW Brow Enhancing Serum
Infused with amino acids, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin E, Grande Cosmetics’s Brow Enhancing Serum looks to support overall brow health, which in turn promotes fuller brows overall. Whether you’re eager to revive a brow tail or improve density, expect to see results in up to four months.
Dr. Lara Devgan Platinum Long Lash Serum
From award-winning plastic surgeon Dr. Lara Devgan’s lineup is the Platinum Long Lash Serum. Considered a salve for thinning eyelashes, this plant-based number works well with brows too thanks to the infused phyto-peptides, vitamin B5, and clover flower extract resulting in full improvement after five to six months.
Maya Chia Power Fol Eyelash Eyebrow Serum
Maya Chia’s serum works overtime to encourage lash and brow length and fullness—even featuring a dual-sided applicator to treat both areas. The formula utilizes its peptide complex and the Power Fol technology that promotes growth at the scalp, for healthier arches and lashes.
Province Apothecary Full Brow Serum
Those in search of a clean brow-enhancing serum by Province Apothecary. This antioxidant-rich option is formulated with coffee, caffeine, castor seed, and argan oil to stimulate hair growth at the follicle. Keep in mind, though, that this is pretty thick compared to others in the market, so might be best used at night or on no makeup days.
Pronexa Hairgenics Lavish Lash
Improve the appearance of eyelashes and eyebrows with Pronexa’s multipurpose serum. A hidden gem on Amazon with over 19,000 five-star reviews to date, this affordable pickup is packed with growth peptides and biotin to spur dense, lush brows in 60 days.

Rita Ora Reveals Her Unusual Emerald Engagement Ring
Rita Ora has kept the details surrounding her nuptials to Taika Waititi largely under wraps, with no confirmation of the exact date the couple exchanged their vows. What we do know: Waititi proposed to Ora with an emerald in a diamond pavé-set bezel, then presented his new wife with a delicate wedding band during a private ceremony.
The singer revealed more details about her engagement ring on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon which, up until now, she has “never shown anyone.” “Because I love you and I feel like you’re part of our relationship, weirdly, because we watch you every night, I just felt like I’ll show you it,” she told Fallon, before offering up her hand to the camera. “He did good.”
When asked about the selection process, Ora said that she guided Waititi. “I just think, like, when you know what you want and I felt like I really knew that I wanted to be with this person, I just wanted it to feel really right,” she explained. “I may have taken him to the shop and I may have pointed out exactly what ring I wanted.”

19 Glorious Photos of ABBA, Masters of Retro ’70s Style
ABBA members Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad dominated radio airwaves back in the 1970s—but the Swedish supergroup is still as relevant as ever in 2023. Following up their smash hits like “Dancing Queen” and “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!,” the iconic band released a brand new album, titled Voyage, in 2021—their ninth and final studio album. This weekend, they’re also up for four major Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album of the Year, as well as Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for one of their leading singles, “Don’t Shut Me Down.”
Ahead of ABBA’s grand appearance at the Grammys on Sunday, Vogue is taking a look back at the Swedish group’s best fashion moments over the years. Photos from their heyday in the 1970s prove they’ve always been the masters of coordinated group style. While performing on stage, the four members have always shared a penchant for the dramatic—often synching up on groovy suits, bellbottom jeans, or disco-ready spandex catsuits. There’s a reason there’s a whole Broadway musical (and movie) set to their music; The group has a large roster of hits, and an even longer list of statement outfits to go along with them.
Many of their fabulously retro looks were designed by Owe Sandström, their go-to costume designer at the time. “I wanted [their outfits] to be like pieces of art, more than just costumes,” he told the Sydney Morning Herald. “My inspirations came from everywhere, from all over the world. Kimonos in Japan, the northern lights of Scandinavia. The latin boleros and flamenco pieces in Chiquitita and Fernando.”
While it’s easy to look back on their 1970s clothes as a time capsule, many of their pieces—including the flared denim and frilly blouses—couldn’t feel more current, especially as designers such as Celine’s Hedi Slimane constantly look back and draw from the decade. Log onto TikTok, and not only is ABBA’s music constantly being used for trending sounds, but many creators are also playing into their ’70s style, too (remember that beauty trend on the app where everyone was recreating bouncy, voluminous, ABBA-worthy curls?). ABBA is the gift that keeps on giving—and we simply can’t wait to see what they wear to the Grammys on Sunday.
Below, 19 glorious ABBA photos to enjoy.

The Surprising Hack That Finally Fixed My Insomnia
I feel like I’ve lost years of my life to sleeplessness—sometimes I look as if I have, too. Most nights I wake in the middle of the night, suddenly on some kind of vigil for that saber-toothed tiger attack. But of course, the tiger never comes (I know this because I am then awake for hours). For me, a good night’s sleep is a meager six hours. The worst-case scenario—about four hours, broken into little pieces (a bit like me)—happens all too frequently.
Like many insomniacs, I’ve tried everything: over-the-counter sleeping pills (they work, but dependency feels wrong), quitting caffeine and alcohol (it helps, but it is no cure), ear plugs and eye masks (essential), sleep podcasts, bedtime breathwork, magnesium and melatonin (all useless), and CBTi (that’s ‘i’ for insomnia—effective but brutal, and my bad habits and wakefulness always won out). I have followed all the received wisdom around sleep hygiene—to no real effect. And with all the literature around the negative health consequences of sleeplessness, it’s easy to let panic steer your life into obsessiveness around sleep. That didn’t help either.
But then a chance conversation a couple of months ago with the sleep coach Camilla Stoddart changed everything. “Have you tried journaling?” she asked. I hadn’t. I was always too self-conscious, too unconvinced. To me, journalling belonged with pillow mists and milky drinks in the softly-softly, totally ineffective category. Stoddart explained the science: “The amygdala is your brain’s worry center, and is responsible for emotional processing—it’s the amygdala that judges whether something is worth panicking over.” It was my stressed-out amygdala that was waking me up, she said, adding, “but journalling will help to switch it off.”
Stoddart pointed out that, as someone with a busy mind that is prone to anxiety, I tend towards a state of hyperarousal, i.e., I am always on high alert, whether I’m awake or asleep. “What you need to do is stop the arousal before it wakes you up,” she says. By giving myself 20 or so minutes a day of “constructive worrying,” where you commit all the things preying on your mind to paper and permit yourself to worry about them, I will be offloading my mind, clearing the amygdala of sleep-interrupting anxieties, and lessening my state of heightened arousal. “By journalling,” she adds, “you’re standing down your busy mind and stopping it from warning you over and over again. For all your adult life, your way of dealing with stress has been to do it in the middle of the night— you have to untrain your brain. Just try it for a week.”
