In brief: Just because

For the same reason hair starts growing in some of the most unusual places, like the ears and the nose.
Actually, eyelashes become shorter, and that is why some people try to make them grow longer with the same medication that is used to treat glaucoma. So, just tweeze your eye brows, but be careful you do not stick yourself in the eye with the tweezer.
