    How do you feel about the over-tweezed and over-manicured eyebrows? I have some difficulty getting past it. I don't know what it is, but it just turns me off. It seems to be a big problem with the homos here in Philly.

    I can't make any negative comments on thin eyebrows. But I will say I wish mine were thicker.

    Well daniel from your pics you don't seem to have any eyebrow problems. But for those of us that can get a unibrow- well bring on the wax!

    Not a fan. If the guy just has to do it, moderation is preferred.

    Though I've never understood guys that over-tweeze and over-manicure their eyebrows yet grow their chest hair. The juxtaposition confuses me.

    To each his own. Some dudes it looks interesting. Others it looks maybe a bit high maintenance, but it's all cool with me. Do with them what ya want. Now showing off your man tits or man udders is a little problem with me but again, to each their own.

    I agree. I mean, some minor maintenance is fine, but when they are super thin or non-existant, it's kind of a turn-off.

    i've disvocered in los angeles that tweezing is no longer a homo-restricted acticity. crazy. this assimilation to the mainstream causes me much confusion and grief. we need to find a new thing to make us feel superior and snub our sloppy, poorly-dressed brothers. haha

    that said:

    overtweezing scares me. but then, so does undergrooming.

    look like a man, look like an evolved man.

    I'm all for being sloppy and poorly dressed. icon_biggrin.gif

    I blew off my eyebrows when I was 10 playing with gasoline and fire. icon_twisted.gif They grew back.

    The only people who should trim their eyebrows are those old old guys who look like they have nest of hoary caterpillars on their brow. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I don't think it's very attractive. Something about it just takes away from someone's natural beauty. Sure a slight trim would do some people good, but I like to go o'natural. It surprises people that I never tweeze, shave or even bother to trim my eyebrows. I know that it gets women's panties in a twist, since they actually desire to obtain the highest qualities of beauty for whatever reasons...

    In my opinion, "overtweezed" eyebrows are feminine. If a guy wants to look that way, fine.

    When I was about 40ish, I had to start trimming my eyebrows because the hair started growing too long (like the villains in silent movies). I also trim a little between them to avoid the single eyebrow look.

    My eyebrows are the fullest bits of hair on my head, so I have to keept them right.

    I think there is a balance. I have thick, not bushy, eyebrows. I make sure to keep them tweezed to avoid a uni brow and trim them to not be too long. I still look like I have thick eyebrows. I just look a little better groomed. Its part of the manscaping. Guys should be careful about waxing to remove large bits of hair. I get waxing kits to get rid of the stray hairs. It think I look million times better when I am kept up.

    You just don't want to look like a mexican teenaged girl who has done the whole shave your eyebrows off rite of passage...

    Thank you for the light topic!

    I used to have to bisect a unibrow, but I seem to have beaten it down several years ago. Aside from that I do ocaissionally get a wax just to clean up a little. My main request is usually "I don't want to look constantly surprised or like an old woman."

    i think unibrows (on the right person) are very sexy. but i think any hair, anywhere, deserves a little trim if its out of control (ex - nothing worse than long wirey hairs reaching out like branches from under an arm pit), which is a matter of personal taste of course.

    I never remove anything from the perimeter of my brows. I do have to yank these super long crazy ones that show up every now and again or I'd end up looking like a Mentat or even worse, Leonid Breshnev.

    I've always been terrified to go get them "cleaned up" because I'm scared they'll come out looking too neat and unnatural.

    I guess I just don't trust estheticians; so I usually just make sure there are two and leave them be. If a guy doesn't talk to me because of my eyebrows I feel like there are other reasons we wouldn't hit it off.

    Lol! Glad to see I have at least one fan of my low-brow humor (for our friends across the pond that's: humour)

    Nothing turns me off faster than overly tweezed eyebrows. I don't know why but it's actually a deal breaker for me.

    I hate it. Sure, separate. But when guys have formed lady-like brows, it's a total turn-off.

    Coincidentally, I was just surprised at a coffee shop by someone I'd been chatting with online earlier today. Apart from the uneasy feeling that I was being kinda stalked, I was completely distracted by his perfect, obviously waxed eyebrows. I don't know why I find that so unattractive but it really does completely turn me off.

    But then I don't get pedicures either.

    I'm in favor of keeping the 'brows cleaned up, but if you look permanently startled like Ms. Crawford up there...
