Shape your brow

Most guys are uneducated about brow care—and look worse for it.


 Get the Right Tool

Buy a pair of tweezers made to fit a man's hand. One that have a wide, textured grip, not to mention a dual-head design that lets you pluck brow hairs with one end and clean up small strays that fall outside your hairline with the other.














Prep With a Shower

The heat opens up pores and will loosen the hair so it won't hurt as much. If you've got especially sensitive skin, apply a numbing agent to help lessen the sting.


Do a Quick Trim

All guys should do this, not just those with heavy brows. Taking the weight out may be all you need to look young and polished. Comb hairs straight up with a brow brush or a clean toothbrush, then use a small pair of scissors to clip any hairs that stick out above your natural brow line.


Master Your Plucking Technique

Always use a regular mirror (not a magnifying mirror, which can lead to overplucking) and remove hairs one by one. Pull them quickly by the root in their natural direction to prevent ingrowns. Step back regularly to see how's it looking.


Leave a Few Strays

To keep things from looking artificial, never carve into your arch and don't remove every last rogue. A little roughness is a must for men. Thick, bushy eyebrows can look strong and handsome, but they get out of control easily. 

Waxing or Tweezing? While most people prefer waxing, more women and men are turning to tweezing or threading to achieve a more customized look to their brows without the skin breakout hassles. While most men think all they can do is wax, you may want to co

There are many different methods to getting rid of a uni-brow. A few go the easy route and make a quick swipe with the razor when shaving. Don't do that. While the hair won't grow back fuller as the old wives' tale might suggest, it will grow back with blunt ends, which looks thicker. Plucking is the easiest, cheapest and least painful solution.


My Method:

 The best time to pluck is right after a warm shower, when your pores are open and the hair has softened.


Get a hand towel. Turn the sink on to the hottest water you can stand. Wet part of the towel and hold it onto your brow for about a minute. 


For better results, use a slant tip tweezer, like the pair on the left. Start tweezing in the middle of your eyebrow region, working your way towards the part of your eyebrows that you want to keep. Make sure you stretch the skin with your free hand as you go.


If you want to thin your individual eyebrows, start from the bottom and move upwards while keeping the shape of your brows. When finished plucking, turn on the cold water. Put a small section of the hand towel under the water for a few minutes. Place it on the plucked part until the towel no longer feels cold. The cool temperature and pressure closes the pores on the tweezed area.


You can also wax your unibrow, but get it done by a professional.

See a Pro

Most men wouldn't dream of setting foot into a spa or salon to get those brows under control, but seeing a pro shouldn’t intimidate you.
