Do real men trim their brows? Yes they do. Rumor has it that Tiki Barber and David Beckham get their eyebrows done. So what’s it all about?
If you have a unibrow or if the hair is getting in the way of your vision, it’s time to consider some grooming. You don’t want them shaped or arched. That’s what women do. You want to take the weight out of the brow very conservatively. As you age, the eyebrow hair grows longer and droops so grooming your brows can actually open the eye and make you look younger.
For the do-it-yourself-ers, first comb your brows up so you can see which hairs are the longest. Then trim with a small pair of scissors. Be careful with tweezers because you can end up looking like Carrot Top. And never shave your brows. Beard stubble is one thing but eyebrow stubble is a no-no.
Your best bet is to see a professional. Find a spa that offers eyebrow grooming for men and get a consultation. After your initial visit, it’s easier to maintain them at home by following the lines when they start to grow back.
