With a simple switch in the shape or length of your eyebrows you can completely transform your look. Thankfully, there are more than a few ways to get the brows of your dreams, whether it's with a brow pen or pomade or the semipermanent option of microblading. There are plenty who love the procedure like actor Courteney Cox, who shared a selfie on Instagram showcasing part of the process. 

The Friends star posted a candid selfie on November 16 with the amusing caption, "Had my eyebrows microbladed. Too much?" She kept it pretty casual with tousled hair and minimal makeup — except for the two rather large splotches of a brown-colored cream on her brows. 

While that brown cream may look a little bit funny, it does serve a purpose: It's the pigment used to create Cox's new arches. After creating the hair-like strokes, California-based cosmetic tattoo artist Audrey Glass applied the cream to ensure that each stroke has ample pigment for a perfect set of brows. 

It takes more than one session to make sure your arches are perfect and that second session can be scheduled anywhere from a month to two months after the first appointment. But afterward, your brows will be filled in for about a year before any touch-ups are needed, according to New York City-based cosmetic tattooer Bethany Wolosky.  "If you don't touch them up again after 12 to 18 months, they'll eventually completely fade away," she previously told Allure

As with any procedure, always make sure to do the research beforehand to make sure you have all the pertinent information and that you find a skilled, certified professional. Though the regulations for microblading vary from state to state (due to the fact that it is considered a tattoo and tattoo regulations vary), brow stylists with accreditation from the American Academy of Micropigmentation or the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals are a safe bet, as New York City-based, board-certified dermatologist Hadley King previously shared with Allure. 

If you're not ready to get your brows microbladed, there are other options, like brow lamination, microshading (sensitive skin types, this one is for you), or simply a really good brow pen that will give you the best eyebrows of your life — whether you want super-thick ones that rival Dan Levy's or the thinnest arches that would make even the most '90s-obsessed person envious.
