You go to the hairdresser a few times a year because the wool on your head has become long again or the ends have split ends. However, you never need scissors on your eyebrows to trim them. They always feel the same length. Why is it that the hairs on the brow are not as long as on the head? STYLEBOOK knows the explanation.

Hair has different properties in different parts of the body that influence the rate of growth. Hair on the head usually grows faster than hair on other parts of the body. This is due to the particularly active hair roots on the head. Hair roots have a lifespan of between six and eight years before they fall out. And what about eyebrow growth?
