Whenever I think of the term unibrow, my stomach churns. How can guys be so oblivious to the fact that they have a single adjoining eyebrow? By definition, a unibrow (or monobrow) is an overgrowth of hair between the nose area that creates the appearance of having one continuous eyebrow.
If your man is one of these guys who doesn't groom this area of his face, it's up to you to talk to him about the error of his ways. And if indeed you are one of the lucky ladies that he'll allow to take matters into your own hands, get ready to have some fun.
Tip: Keep in mind that you're going for a really natural look. Most men aren't going to allow you to linger for very long, so your goal is to work quickly and efficiently. Also, don't overdo it — anything too plucked is going to make him feel self-conscious, and you will only ensure that he'll never let you near them again! To read my simple four-step process to creating great groomed guy brows,
- STEP 1: Use a small and sharp scissor to trim any long eyebrows. A subtle shaping will make a really big difference.
- STEP 2: The best time to pluck is after he's gotten out of the shower, when his skin is warm and moist. Take a tweezer and begin to tweeze the most obvious, dark, and overgrown hairs in the middle first.
- STEP 3: Then, tweeze a few hairs from each brow that are growing way too high or too low or are sticking out on the sides. You are simply trying to create a clean shape and a more uniform look. When in doubt, step back for a moment to make sure that your work is even.
- STEP 4: Once you are finished, take a cool towel and apply it to his brows. This should minimize pain and redness. Also, let him know that it's going to be much easier to pluck frequently than to withstand this kind of treatment again. Tell him that whenever he sees a stray just to pluck it away!
