Are you a guy who takes eyebrow grooming seriously? How to groom men’s eyebrows? Well, it doesn’t mean to remove a lot of hair and shape them like a woman’s and create high or dramatic arches. A simple tune-up will make them look more in line. Sometimes, all it takes is trimming the brows or taking a couple hairs here and there. Different rules apply for men than women when taming the brows.
Every few months, use a beard trimmer to shorten your brow hairs. While this one method that works for very thick brows but brow scissors is recommended for precision. Simply brush your brows up or use your fingers and you’ll notice that some hairs stand longer that the rest. Slowly trim them horizontally. Once your brush them all back into place, you’ll notice a difference right away. Check your work, and dig back in a little at a time if you need to remove more weight. Depending on how thick or long your brows are this may be all you need to do.
“Tweeze your unibrow,” Soare remarks. “Any brow hairs that come too closely to the center of the nose bridge can make your eyes look close together and also create an unkempt look.” To make sure you’re not removing too much, draw an imaginary line from the middle of your nostril vertically up as a guide to where each eyebrow should begin, and get rid of anything that lies in between.
“Put your thumb pad between brows, and remove any stray hairs below it,” says Soare. The space shouldn’t be bigger than 3/4 an inch or you could end up with a more pronounced nose. The best time to remove hairs is after a steamy shower when your pores are open. Pull skin taught, and then use a tweezer to pull hairs in the direction they grow in.
Tips for Men’s Eyebrows Grooming:
- Use a good pair of tweezers:Good tweezers make the job a lot easier and quicker, by grasping hair and not sliding off. Tweezerman Slant Tweezers are one of the most recommended tweezers for men.
- A tip for pain: Tweeze right when you come out of the shower when your follicle is nice and relaxed. The hair will slide out easier.
- Thin out middle:You don’t have to take away all of the hair. You can tweeze out single hairs from the middle taking random thicker hairs, leaving the finer ones. This will thin out the area making the hair look less noticeable, but not hair-free.
- Don’t go deep:If you’re removing hair on the bottom part of the brow, make straight or slightly curved lines. Stick to just taking hair only outside the main shape. Strays that pop up seriously outside your brow line can go, but leave most strays below and above the brow line in place to maintain a masculine arch.
- Eyebrow waxing for men: It’s quicker than tweezing and it’s a better choice if you want more defined brows because waxing can get the very fine hairs that tweezing often misses.
- I wouldn’t suggest waxing your own brows if you’re new to grooming them, so tweeze first to get the feel.
- To keep brows in check, trim every three to four weeks.
- If your brows need extra help staying in place, simply spray a bit of hairspray on a comb or eyebrow brush and then brush brows smooth or use clear mascara in the morning.
