Tonya Crooks, the woman behind Megan Fox and Natalie Portman's beautifully honed brows, explains her how-to.

After Tonya Crooks' celebrity clientele (Megan Fox, Natalie Portman, Eva Mendes – the list goes on) kept complaining that they couldn't get their brows to look the same without her expert assistance, Hollywood's most in-demand brow artist set about creating her own product range of the bespoke blends she made at home.

The result is a line out of LA titled The BrowGal – now available here in Selfridges – comprising of a clever edit of everything you need to craft and maintain 'brow wow' a la the A-list.

Included in the range are some precision brow scissors and tweezers, which she thinks should be used in conjunction with professional waxing appointments when it comes to brow grooming. What Crooks doesn't believe in is threading, a popular choice here in the UK.

She explains, 'Almost all eyebrow experts, especially the ones who work on celebrities, either wax or tweeze and trim the brows. This is because you can get the details and shape properly with wax.'

Crooks adds that: 'You should only thread hair you never want to see again. This is because when the thread wraps around the hair follicle, it breaks it off, causing damage to the follicle, meaning the hair may grow back curly, out of place, or not at all.'

If you have overdone it in the grooming department, The BrowGal not only has lots of options for filling in tricksy bald patches (there's a pencil, gel and power/pomade hybrid), but also a brow enhancement serum called Second Chance, which promises to have powerful restorative properties. We wouldn't expect an instant miracle, though.

Whether you're in the process of growing your brows, or are already giving Megan Fox a run for her money, it usually pays to seek the advice of a pro when it comes to grooming. Do your homework on local waxing and threading options so you know which is right for you and go easy when tweezing between appointments. Unless, of course, you really know what you're doing.
