If we had to hazard a wild guess, we’d say your eyebrows aren’t looking their finest at the moment. Even if you'd were smart enough to book in for a salon threading or waxing session back in March, you’re doubtless sprouting regrowth by now.
So what can you and your brows do? You could grab your tweezers and risk spearheading an accidental return to the 90s microbrow. Or you could call for professional help.
Step forward Sherrille Riley, the founder of London’s Nails & Brow salon and eyebrow guru to none other than Meghan Markle. She’s now offering 1-2-1 digital appointments over Zoom or WhatsApp video, where she’ll personally guide you through a DIY brow tidy.

This weird DIY face mask using Yakult claims to give you softer, smoother skin – but does it really work?
“The idea started after so many of my clients contacted me asking how to look after their own brows,” she explained. “That’s when I decided to start offering digital appointments as a new service to anyone who wants help.” Each appointment lasts 15 minutes and costs £32.
Sherrille certainly knows her stuff. She’s been in the business for over 20 years, and is famed for her signature face-lifting ‘Audrey’ eyebrow, inspired by the legendary Hepburn.
In fact, Meghan Markle is the poster girl for The Audrey, which arches up to the middle and then stays lifted out toward the temples. Sherrille took the actress on a whole Hepburn brow journey back in her pre-Harry days, coaxing her eyebrows into the thicker, more lifted style she has today.

You don’t have to be a VIP to sign up to Sherrille’s latest offering though. Simply log onto the website here to request an appointment. The service is already so popular Sherrille is roping in her top brow team, but you can request an appointment with Sherrille directly.
You don't need any special equipment, as Sherrille will just work with what you have, but she's got a rather lovely range available to buy online here.

I hadn’t touched my brows since lockdown began, so they weren’t looking their sharpest as I clicked on my Zoom link. The prospect of sharing my monobrow via an extreme close up could have been excruciating, but Sherrille has the most wonderful, calming aura about her – even over a video call. It’s no wonder why she has so many loyal VIP clients.
She began by asking me to brush my brows up so she could see what we were dealing with. “Not bad at all, you have a nice shape,” she said (generously, I felt).
As I leaned into the webcam while clutching a mirror in one hand, she guided me through tweezing almost hair by hair, voicing gentle caution if I risked accidentally plucking anything off the tails of my brows. (That’s a big no-no if you want the face-lifting Audrey effect.)
Sherrille was so charming, I soon forgot I was probably giving her an intimate view of the inside of my nostrils as I loomed towards the camera, plucking away at my monobrow. It should have been embarrassing but it was oddly soothing to be guided through my tweezing.
Once we were both happy with the shape, she shared her artist-like technique for defining the brows. The trick, she revealed, was to begin by sketching a pencil lightly all the way along the lower edge of the brows. That gives you the perfect base line from which to start feathering little strokes upwards.
It was so simple, yet it was the best DIY brow make-up I’d ever done. Call me a dummy but I’d never realised before that you’re actually MEANT to get the pencil (lightly) onto your skin if you want your brows to look thicker. I always thought you were only supposed to pencil the hairs themselves. Doh.
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from a virtual brow appointment but I loved it. I reckon it’s money well spent if you want to fix your brow overgrowth while feeling like royalty.
