Guybrows - A Guide to Men's Eyebrow Styling


by Jeffery Kufalk December 01, 2017 87 Comments

“OMG, your unibrow is SO SEXY!” - said no one ever!

Men's hair styling has jumped leaps and bounds over the past 10 years, yet eyebrow grooming tends to be ignored.

Eyebrows are a primary visible expression of emotion, and when they’re out of control, it can be A LOT LIKE TYPING IN CAPS, only all the time.  These expressions can seem offensive to people and overpowering or overbearing without intending to.  Likewise, if the brows are weak or absent, emotion is muted or lost.  This can lead others to feeling uneasy as they can’t tell how you’re doing.

So what are your brows saying?

 eyebrows

Ideally, the eyebrows should show:

  • Symmetry - Simple enough, the left should be the same relative size/shape/color as the right.  If not, you’re going to walk around with a perpetually curious look which is great if you're a magician.
  • Neatness - Brows should flow naturally from the inside towards the outside edges of the eyes.  This is easy to achieve through an eyebrow brush (or a clean toothbrush) and maintaining stray hairs.
  • No Unibrow - Eyebrows should have a definitive start and end point, and there should be two of them.  One over each eye.  If you've got a furry little bridge between them, burn it down.
  • Short/trimmed - Brow hair should not be excessively long.  As men age, or depending on genetics, brows can sometimes have long or thick hair which will benefit greatly from trimming down to around 1/2” length.

With all grooming, there will be people who require more or less in certain areas so you will need to work out a good maintenance routine.

Grooming: Here are several methods  with their pros & cons:

  • Plucking - Done with tweezers, plucking is a fast and simple way of dealing with rogue hairs that seem to grow in the wrong direction or are abnormally long.  Plucking is a safe & quick clean up for a unibrow.  The only downside is that the process is somewhat painful.
  • Trimming - Using scissors or electric razor with guide, trimming is great for keeping bushy brows at a nice length and defining edges to the brow.  One drawback is the need for a steady hand and patience or you can trim too much too quickly.
  • Waxing -  Hot wax, applied around the brow line clears a lot of hair quickly & for a longer period of time. This method is good for serious overgrowth or having results that last for longer periods of time.  In our experience, this is one process you will want to involve a professional for.

After trimming, step back from the mirror 5-6 feet and look at your brows for symmetry, shape and color.  When shaping for the first few times, it can be very beneficial to have help from a professional or from a trusted friend.

Enhancing brow color or shade should be the finishing touch:

  • Brow color - very light brows can be difficult to see at a normal distance, so if you have blonde or very light brows, consider touching up the color a bit.  There are several methods of doing such.
  • Tinting with brow dyes - This is a great method for permanent color that doesn’t need to be dealt with daily, but it is one to be careful with to avoid going too dark.  There’s no going back once they’re dyed. 
  • Eyebrow powder -  Typically applied with a light brush that can help with shaping, brow powders come in a rainbow of colors.  We recommend you choose a shade that is complementary to your natural hair color.
