This is the eyebrow trick celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin learned from Jessica Alba

A brand new profile from Allure magazine highlighted the impressive career journey and beauty tricks of Jen Atkin, the celebrity hair stylist who started OUAI hair products and blessed the world with supplements formulated to fix your beauty woes. While most of us consider Jen Atkin a celebrity stylist (and hair pill inventor) first and foremost, her interview with Allure revealed that on many occasions, the celebrities give her style tips in return.

During her interview, Jen revealed that Jessica Alba’s beauty hacks for eyebrows are one of the many secrets she’s tucked away during her career. She said,

"Jessica Alba taught me to use a brow pencil that’s a shade lighter than my actual brows so I don’t look like Oscar the Grouch. I’m name-dropping like crazy."

In her defense, it’s a little hard not to name-drop when your job is styling the hair of famous people. But now that we know her secret for full but natural looking eyebrows, it makes a lot of sense.

We’d be hard-pressed to find a photo of Jen with eyebrows that aren’t symmetrical.


Considering Jessica Alba’s eyebrows are always on point, we’d take her advice too.

Now that her secret’s out, we have a feeling light eyebrow pencils will be selling like hotcakes.
