Men And The Uni-Brow
Men, Are Your With Your Uni-brow?
After being seduced by an e-mail, I was lured into a singles forum when I read a post by a gentleman who said that he was comfortable with his unibrow but had noticed that his matches would not respond after seeing his picture. His friend had told him to wax or shave his unibrow and he was wondering if it was that big of a deal.
My first thought was, ”Would you date a woman with a unibrow?” After reading several replies, it was clear that the vote was more than 10-1 that people were in favor of separation. The point was brought out that women have for years, gone to drastic measures to make sure their body hair is shaved, shaped or removed by some means. Be it shaved, waxed, tweezed or whatever, a well groomed man should not have a unibrow.
I remember doing business with a impeccably groomed man, but all I could think about as I sat across from him was jumping over the desk and trimming his brows. Maybe I take my work too seriously, but why let a few wild and unruly brow hairs or a unibrow keep you from looking your best?
Unlike a woman’s eyebrow, it’s really quite easy to take care of a man’s brow and this is what I recommend:
1 – Don’t Shave!! A razor just can’t get exactly what needs to go and you don’t want an apparent rectangle between your brows. Plus the stubble that is left from shaving can sometimes even look worse.
2 – Don’t wax yourself…Especially your first time. Go to a professional and have them teach you how to do it correctly. I remember my first time waxing left my candidate with a hole in the middle of her eyebrow.
3 – Tweezing is best. You can take out the hairs you don’t want a little at a time.
Again it’s best if you have a knowledgeable person tell you which hairs need to go and ones should stay. Remember that just a few eyebrow hairs can make a huge difference.
If you have a severe unibrow bordering on Neanderthal, take a few hairs out a day so that you gradually diminish the brow and don’t shock your co-workers and acquaintances.
4 – If you have wild an unruly brow hairs, trim carefully. If you brush them all up and give them a trim you will end up with a brow looking like it has had a bowl cut. Trim the hairs carefully at an angle one at a time to make sure you fon’t leave any holes.
Following these tips should still leave you with a masculine eyebrow, but well a groomed brow
