All right guys, I just have to say it. Some of you have GOT to start tweezing your eyebrows. It’s gotten to the point where I can’t even look at you. It’s not that I’m judging you…it’s just about self-respect. Take care of yourself, and we gals will be happy to do the same.
Here’s what you need to do. First – don’t think you can get around the tweezing. Don’t use a razor or an “eyebrow shaping tool” or anything else. These are bad news for the inexperienced dude. Just suck it up and shell out the $2.95 for a pair of tweezers at CVS. You do want a new pair, because cheap tweezers often lose their grip, and you can’t pull out anything, even if you can pull on
them (translation – a lot of hair-pulling, but none of the results).
Next, don’t go overboard. Think simple. On men, the slightest hair can make a huge difference. If you are nervous or pressed for time, just start with the middle. There should be TWO completely independent eyebrows. Next, make sure there is at least an inch between them. If it’s already looking like they’re too far apart, don’t go any farther. If they’re still a bit too close for comfort, allow up to an inch and a half. A great rule of thumb for determining where to draw the line is the direction of the hairs. Are the hairs you still have growing in the same direction as the eyebrow they’re part of, or are they growing upwards? You’re allowed a bit of upward growth, but anything more than a quarter of an inch is too much – pluck away!
Next, you may need some maintenance around the eyebrow, too. If you’re seriously clueless, nervous, or afraid of going too thin, then congrats! You’re done. Cleaning up the unibrow is more than enough, so commend yourself and call it a day. If, however, you need a bit more work, read on. Start at the top. If you have little hairs inching their way up your forehead, get rid of them. Work your way from the top to bottom and from the outside in. Go very slowly and frequently stop to make sure you’re not going overboard. If you can’t tell the difference anymore, take a 5-minute break and look at something besides the mirror. Once the top is done, head to the bottom. If it’s not glaringly obvious that you have some stray hairs, I wouldn’t even mess with it. If you do have some bad boys to get rid of, just remember – less is more. The slightest adjustment is a huge difference. And don’t be afraid to ask your girlfriend!
In conclusion, remember that even though it might hurt a bit, your girlfriend has likely done this her whole life. You want her to look her best, right? Well, do the same for her. It’s only fair!
