    $\begingroup$ should eyebrow be always visible in front of everything else, or only in front of the hair? $\endgroup$ – m.ardito Nov 8 '17 at 12:18

Here is how to do it with render layers and compositor :

Set Suzanne, Eyebrows, and hair on 3 different layers. enter image description here

Create 3 render layers with these different objects on them (here a single example, just do the same for the others) :

Then you do to the compositor, press "use node", and set up the following nodes :

Also, don't forget to set the film transparency :

Then, select all the involved layers, and render your scene.

  • $\begingroup$ Although technically correct, shadows of the eyebrows are missing, right? Seems to me that the question is pointless (in an aesthetic sense). $\endgroup$ – brockmann Nov 8 '17 at 22:28
  • $\begingroup$ I think all the shadows are here since I did not Chek any layers in the exclude section of my render layers. I do not have the file anymore and am away from my computer anyway. $\endgroup$ – Maxx Nov 8 '17 at 23:42
