People who have been a bit overzealous when republicaning eyebrows are turning to transplants to get their natural look back. ABC's Abbie Boudreau checks it out. Reporter: Bold brows are back. That classic Audrey Hepburn look framing the faces of a-lister like Jennifer Connelly, mary-kate and Ashley Olsen but after years of overplucking, getting those beautiful brows can be nearly impossible. That's why more women are turning to eyebrow transplants. Ashley Wilkins began plucking when she was just 12 years old. They never grew back and the more I would pluck and I would try to grow them out and all I would get was a few stray hairs. Reporter: Same story for grace lee who overplucked and even shaved her brows for years. Did it affect your confidence? Definitely. I just didn't feel confident when I went outside. I always needed to like draw my eyebrows which took about 15, 20 minutes. Reporter: Both women turning to Dr. Mark caoer in Los Angeles to transform their eyebrows with transplants. Some people just overpluck their eyebrows and if you overpluck them they may not grow back. Another cause is genetically weak eyebrows.

Reporter: The procedure costs upwards of $7,000 and Dr. Dauer says it can take a year to get your full results. No more plucking. No more plucking. I hope anyone out there who is looking to have the transplants done, just thinks it's a great decision and moves forward with it because they'll never look back.
