Time Will Tell: 3 yr old "eyebrow shaved 3 mos ago, hair lighter". The return of eyebrow hair can be prolonged after shaving taking weeks to months. Severe, deep skin wounds can lead to destruction of the hair follicle leading to changes in the hair consistency. New hair may be sparse, shorter, or coarse compared to the original hair. With time, there may be return to baseline however these changes could persist.
