This Girl's Allergic Reaction Will Make You Think Twice About Eyebrow Tinting

Lately, every girl is completely obsessed with having eye-catching eyebrows like Audrey Hepburn or Beyonce Knowles. I mean, who wouldn’t?! Their eyebrows have always been known to be on fleek! But have you ever considered how far you would go get your brows on their level? Teenager Polly Smith has shown the great lengths that some girls are willing to go just to be on trend.


Smith is 19 years old and lives in the UK, but what she did to get her bold eyebrows will seriously shock you. Basically, she spent £35 ($54) to get her eyebrows threaded, waxed and undergo a tinting treatment. At first it seemed that she had gotten what she had hoped for, but hours later she began to develop a horrible allergic reaction to the dye from her eyebrow tinting.
Below are some of the pics of Polly’s eyebrows before and after her allergic reaction. Warning: It’s a bit graphic.

She said that the skin around her eyebrows began to get really itchy, then the next morning, she was shocked to see that she could barely open her extremely swollen eyes. To make matters worse, her eyebrows began to change into a yellowish color, grow scabs, and fall out.
Doctors have told Smith that the reaction to the dye may be something that may cause permanent damage to her face. As a dancer, this is tragic news. According to Smith,

Being a performer, if my face is disfigured, it is going to impact me at auditions.

Smith was refunded her money from the salon where she had gotten the procedure done, although the staff expressed that they did everything correctly while performing her tinting treatment.
The teen did have some sage advice to anyone who thought it would be a good idea to go out and get their eyebrows tinted.

You should think twice about doing something which could scar you face. I don’t think it is worth the risk. I had the treatment to get nice pretty eyebrows and now they are patchier than ever. I feel so disappointed.

For now, Polly has been prescribed various antibiotics, steroids and antihistamines to help her heal from her condition.
I feel really bad for her and hope things end up working out for Polly. I truly wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy.
