Just don't ask where the hair came from

Attempting to get the bold and bushy eyebrows of stars like Cara Delevingne without a pencil might be attainable – though it comes with a hefty price tag and a whole lot of pain.

Meredith Vieira and her panel of beauty experts discussed the new controversial procedure on Monday’s The Meredith Vieira Show, and the feelings were mixed.

“I’m doing it – I don’t care how much it is,” said stylist Marcellas Reynolds, who claimed he was signing up. “I have always wanted big thick caterpillar eyebrows and I never have. And I don’t care where the hair comes from.”

Meanwhile, Nigel Barker blasted the procedure as a waste of money. “Small eyebrows are in one moment, big eyebrows are in the next,” he said. “You’re going to spend $8,000 and then pluck them out when it’s no longer in fashion?”

Touché.

The procedure involves removing hair follicles from the back of your scalp and transplanting them to your brows during a three- to eight-hour surgery. The cost? A whopping $3,000-7,000. For that amount of dough, you could purchase at least 107 Smashbox brow tech pencils or 34 Browfood phyto-medic eyebrow enhancers. Just saying.

On the other hand, if you go the transplant route, at least you’ll have a use for that unwanted upper back hair – and a guarantee that your brow game is bushy. Very, very bushy.
