    I was in a Spanish bar and both the hunky bartenders had plucked eyebrows which made them look kind of weird.

    I get my barber to clip them but I wouldn't pluck them.

    Sunday morning thoughts.

    I've plucked since about age 13, to remove the unibrow, but never otherwise shaped them like a Hollywood actress from the 1930s or anything like that.

    Today the unibrow is gone, except for some stray hairs I still pluck. And I've begun plucking the odd white hair that now sometimes appears among the jet black. I know that'll eventually have to stop as the white finally outnumber the others, but for now I still show totally black at 60. icon_biggrin.gif

    I never pluck my eyebrow its tooo painful for me. I prefer to get them waxed and groomed. If I am to lazy to get them wax or broke, I groom them myself.

    To groom them or clean them up if they are really bushy and crazy.

    1) get a Mascara wand, either one of those disposable ones or a cheap one and just clean the mascara off the brush.(you can also find them at the body shop)

    2) brush all your eyebrow hairs up.

    3) take scissors and clip the Hairs that go over the edge.

    but also when I'm at the Salon I tell her that I don't want to go walking out the salon looking like im ready to perform the broadway production of le cage aux folles.icon_wink.gif

    I'm with MadeNUSA. I can't stand seeing guys with plucked eyebrows. I don't care much if you pluck the unibrow . . . but SHAPING them?! I mean, seriously?! Seriously. It's just not a good look.

    Yeah sometimes when eyebrows are shaped they can look too square and odd.

    Yep, and when I did a little drag, my bushy eyebrows were a problem I faced, along with my eyes overall, the oldest-looking part of my face. My solution was to devise costumes that allowed me to wear sunglasses, and wide hat brims, all to cover the fact that I didn't shape my eyebrows, and that makeup could do little to help my baggy eyes.

    Here's one of my drag looks. My heavy beard shadow also shows in this shot, but actually in person it wasn't this bad, here an exaggeration caused by the camera flash. The second pic shows me with the bad eyes (also a bit drunk at New Years), taken a couple years later when I was 57. Definitely not girly eyebrows!

    I LOVE IT!!icon_biggrin.gif

    Eyebrows are super easy to fix for drag. you just have to learn how to cover them up with scar wax or glue(which is a long process but works)then draw them on by hand.

    I used to pluck to prevent the uni brow. I started doing that when I was about 16 and I now l don't have to do it anymore, it's stopped coming back. If I were to put a buzzer to it, I'd get those stumpy hairs and then it would have grown back even thicker so no, I pluck.

    It's like waxing, it gradually thins to the point where it doesn't grow back.

    I tweeze the unibrow, trim the long ones so I don't look like a Mentat nd take care of a few strays when needed.

    Sure, why not? The main thing to avoid is creating thin eyebrows and a high arch, but if you follow a more masucline contour, you should be fine.

    There's a reason people have two eyes and two eyebrows. Let's keep it that way icon_smile.gif

    Only to avoid the smallest unibrow look (almost negligible) I also pluck nipple hair, otherwise I chafe when running. Chafed nipples really hurt. OUCH!
