GUYBROWS!

Hey guys, how do you groom your eyebrows? And women, you spend so much time on yours I would think more of you would help your fella’s out! I’m not talkin’ about removing a lot of hair and shaping them like a woman’s by creating high or dramatic arches. Simply giving them a tune-up will make the world of difference. Sometimes, just a  trimm or tweezing a couple hairs here and there is all it takes. There are different rules that apply for men than women when shaping the brows.
Some guys think that there shouldn’t be any hair in between their brows. Not true. You can have some hair there it’s a personal preference. This doesn’t mean you should walk around sporting a unibrow either, but you need to know how much to take and where to stop.
Follow these Tips for Grooming your Eyebrows Men ( and women who care )-
Sometimes trimming the brows is enough and its just the bulk and not the shape that needs to go. Trimming keeps brows in place and makes them look lighter and cleaner, so do that first before removing any hair! To keep brows in check, trim every three to four weeks or ask your stylist to cut them when you get your haircut. If more manscaping is required you’ll need a pair of  GOOD tweezers! This will make this a lot easier, faster, and less painful. Speaking of pain here’s a tip… tweeze right after you shower. The follicles will be nice and relaxed and the hair will come out easier.
Thin out the middle between the brows, you don’t have to take away all of the hair. Just tweeze out random thicker hairs, leaving the finer ones. This will thin out the area making the hair less noticeable but not bare. If you are a man that prefers the full Browzilian just make damn sure you don’t go deep.  Here’s how to find where they should begin: Use something straight like your toothbrush, from the outer sides of the ball of your nose (yes you have another ball, it is the tip of your schnoz) to your brows. This is the farthest you EVER go in to remove hair otherwise you risk making them look like a woman’s.  When you’re removing hair on the bottom part of the brow, make straight or slightly curved lines. Stick to just taking hair only outside the main shape. Leaving the line “scattered” and not clean is ideal. After you’ve plucked your peepers use my home made tend skin ( see past tip for recipe) to soothe skin and prevent ingrown hairs.  If you’re man enough to try eyebrow waxing go for it! It’s quicker than tweezing and it’s a better choice if you want more defined brows. Waxing gets the very fine hairs that tweezing  misses. I  suggest tweezing your own brows if you’re new to grooming them. Feel it out first. I wouldn’t recommend waxing your own brows either!  Make an appointment with a professional, find someone who has experience with men’s brows!!! Explain exactly what you want before they leave you depilated. There are other great options out there ( like threading, etc.) if you feel adventurous. Men’s eyebrow ‘s are strong in size and shape for a reason. To balance your large features so err on the side of caution unless you have your beautifully sculptured eye on a spot in Rupaul’s  Drag Race.
