Men plucking their eyebrows!

Whats the fascination with eyebrows atm?If its not bad enough women becoming obsessed with their own,now men seem to be on the bandwagon shaping their own! For me personally,I like a guy to look natural.If that means eyebrows that are'nt plucked/shaped,so be it.I think plucked brows on guys looks abit weird tbh.Thoughts?

If it helps him to feel good about himself then why not? Especially if he’s got very prominent eyebrows. But it’d be a shame if he became obsessed with them or overdid it.

I certainly wouldn't, mainly because it must hurt.
I do trim them with scissors every now and then though, otherwise I would end up looking like Denis Healey.

My OH too. :lol:

I run the clippers over them when I cut his hair.

As for plucking them, I can't really understand why anyone does it. I tried it as a teenager it hurt and haven't bothered since. If men want to do it, that's fine, but I sort of see it as end of epoch "peel me a grape" syndrome.

As someone who did fall into the trap of plucking my eyebrows when I was younger, I can say that one of the advantages is that the hair stops growing after a while. I rarely need to do mine now as the ones I used to pluck don’t tend to grow anymore.

I'm with Odsox - every couple of months or so a quick trip to the barber for hair, beard and trim back the eyebrow overhang. In between take the scissors to any eyebrow hair that intrudes on my field of vision.

My husband visits a turkish barber fairly regularly.He gets the whole treatment....ear/nose hair,eyebrows too?But....only trimming the longer ones.My husband does'nt have them sculpted or tweezed either.Natural eyebrow hair looks fab on a guy I think.Plucked looks too feminine to me.Each to their own I guess.

I can definitely think of better things to do with my time rather than pluck my eyebrows. Then again, the last time I had my hair cut was a few years back.

:lol: So Brewtrog is either bald or a hippy and plucked eyebrows aren't a fashion statement in either case

Definitely not bald, although I was after my last haircut. Possibly a bit young to fall in with the hippies, but yeah, the hair is long enough.
