How To Tweeze Your Eyebrows Like A Man

Let’s get this straight—unibrows are wrong. Very, very wrong. You could be handsome, a clotheshorse or even gold digger’s fantasy–but with bushy soldiers up there, your braggadocio holds invalid. And however manly a hirsute situation may seem, it makes you look shabby, scraggly and well…not very attractive. All we’re trying to say here is that, whatever said and done, brow-caring is easy: trim, pluck and sculpt them down. After all, it’s also about hygiene, aesthetic and most importantly, what attracts the opposite sex. And really, your brows do count.

But that’s just the start. Bigger questions here: what should your brows look like, how to trim them (or shave them?), should I pluck/tweeze or what’s the best way of doing it all. For starters, let’s define the most superior brows in male anatomy. In ideology, the ends of your brows should coincide with the corner of your eyes and their starting points should begin at the nose line. But the big difference in male species (as opposed to your mot), is that you should keep a bit of the bush intact. Men should look like men, not precisely cut gemstones. But that doesn’t take away the million-dollar truth—we all need to tame our brows anyway.

But should you trim or tweeze?

Well, to be honest, you need a combination of two. Start with trimming first and shorten the length of the strands you intend to pluck. And then, turn to plucking the hair from the roots, instead of just snipping them to a length (otherwise, they’ll grow back quick anyway). With the basics in place, time to prepare for some pain (and gain).

What You Need:

1. Eyebrow Comb/Clean Toothbrush

2. Short Blade Scissors/Moustache Scissors/Nail Scissors

3. Tweezers (angled ones that narrow up the front)

4. Moisturizer

Step 1: Take a hot water shower.

Begin with opening your pores up and loosening the strands you’re going to be pluck. Simple solution: a hot shower. But in case you’re against this idea, use a wet cloth dipped in warm water instead. Place it on your brows for 2-3 minutes!

Step 2: Comb your brows, in this manner…

Bring that eyebrow comb/clean toothbrush out of your caddy, and comb your eyebrows straight up. Begin with the starting point (near the nose) and comb outwards, until you reach its endpoint near your temples.

Step 3: Your first round of trimming feat. a pair of scissors. But mind you, not your craft-class scissors.

Holding the hair on your brows upwards (keep using the comb, as and when required), snip off the desired length first. But not too much—start things slow. Now, while carefully examining the shape of your brows, slyly trim all the excess strands above the top line of your brows. Cut every strand that’s hanging’ a little way out of brow territory. Now take a U-turn, comb your brows downwards and check for visible strands outside the bottom line of your brows.

Step 4: Time for pain!

In case you’ve been too dumb to notice, it was all child’s play till now. Time for the real deal—plucking every flyaway right from its root! Start with combing your brows naturally, towards your temples. Now, bring out your tweezers and pluck out all the strands that are growing out of the brow line. In particular, check for the ones that are growing independently and far away from your brows. Repeat the same procedure below your brows!

Step 5: Tada, unibrow!

If you’ve been bridging your brows all this while, time to grow the f-ck out of that nonsense, too. Pluck the strands in the center first and then move towards the brows (one brow at a time). How much should you pluck? Place your thumb in the center and pluck anything that falls right under it. Remember: don’t aim at a bald patch in the center, you might end up losing out on your masculine arch.

Step 6: Finish off with a moisturiser!

You’ve trimmed, you’ve plucked and really gone awry on your brows. Time to pamper them with hydration! Post achieving a well-groomed pair of brows, apply some body milk/moisturizer on the area. And using your fingers, bury it into the skin.

Final words: as per requirement, repeat the process as often as needed.
