How Often Do You Maintain Your Eyebrows?

While getting a pedicure, I overheard a gaggle of gals discussing their tweezing habits. One girl admitted to tweezing and trimming nearly every day, a few said once a week, and one said that she only allowed her esthetician to groom them when she went in for her monthly treatments.

Most of you said that you're into tweezing and plucking as your brow-beautifying method (which I happen to favor too, about twice a month). I find that if I fiddle more often, I just wind up with an overly thin and asymmetrical result. About how often do you pluck, wax, or thread your eyebrows?

I tweeze my eyebrows about every day... but that is not the full sit in front of a mirror with bright lighting from start to finish. I do daily tweezing, to keep it orderly. If I see a few stray hairs I pluck them while looking at my face in the mirror, when I brush my teeth in the morning. So it takes like 1 minute tops with a tweezers in the hand. It is about every 2 to 3 weeks, when I will sit with a mirror in my face and seriously fix everything. But with my daily 'check ups' it never takes that long, just a few strands here and there.

OMG, I had no idea. I get mine waxed once every couple of months when its convenient. I never think about it in between.

Other - I've never done anything to my brows, I haven't needed to.

Oooh, I'm so anal about my brows! They get waxed every 4-6 weeks, but I pluck daily!

Daily, which means I never over tweeze. Keep the strays away and the shape stays.

I barely have any eyebrows (I was born with very thin ones) so I get them threaded every 2-3 weeks. Though now I'm trying to grow them out before I get them done again so they won't look so thin.

It's every other day for me. It's just one of those things I have to do.

I go stray-hunting almost every day - and every day that I wear makeup. It's essential to keep strays and stubbly bits away, because my skin is uberpale and my hair is dark brown.

About once a week. I shape minimally. Like some posters, I like the natural shape of my eyebrows, and so does my husband. I pluck only a few stragglers.

I do mine once or twice a week, sometimes even longer if I'm being really lazy. I should really do it daily but I can't be bothered. It sucks having really fair skin and dark eyebrows! Oh yeah, I like to pluck mine in natural light as well as I can see all the ones growing quite clearly.

i probably tweeze mine every other day. i find regularly doing a little bit means i'm less likely to over-pluck.

I barely have eyebrow hair so I don't care much for doing them often. I hate that I have so little hair in that area. I don't even feel like bothering with them because it's not as great as when someone actually has a decent amount of hair to groom so that their eyebrows look nice after.

i get my eyebrows threaded every month and then shape them with a brow pencil since i got them permanently done (bad choice, i didn't know better) :P

Brows? Mine are sooo light you can hardly see them! I do pluck a few strays a few times a month, so they look shaped correctly when I use my brow pencil.

I wax my own eyebrows about once a month. I keep them "clean" by plucking the stray hairs that seem to grow in faster than the rest a few times a month. I'm a little obssessed with keeping my eyebrows clean. Especially since, the shape can be lost very easily if I don't maintain the cleanliness..Atleast, this way, I know what to pluck/tweeze and what areas to leave alone.

About once a week, they have their own fantastic shape, and I rarely have hairs that are out of place

I usually get them waxed every 4-6 weeks and then pluck every once in a while in between, I am lazy about plucking, which is why I like to get them waxed. It's really the quickest and least painful for me.

I do it myself so, whenever they need grooming, really. I'ev finally managed to find an eyebrow shape/thickness I'm sort of satisfied with, so I just get rid of the stray hairs. :) (which can be a bit of a nightmare as my eyebrow hairs are kind of curly, ugh)
