managing men's eyebrows

Your eyebrows are one of the first features a person sees when they look at you, so keeping your eyebrows looking clean and well-groomed is essential.

A lot of men that are going for a masculine appearance do eyebrow grooming all wrong. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you could end up with eyebrows that don’t really compliment the rest of your great looking face.

If you want to avoid feminine looking eyebrows or possibly losing a brow, then tag along while we dive into this guide to managing men’s eyebrows.  

1. Trimming

Trimming your eyebrows is a great way to keep those hairs from growing too long. When your eyebrow hairs are to long, they may start to create dips or separations in the hairs of your eyebrow, causing your arch to lose its shape and consistency.

What You'll Need

  • Eyebrow brush (spoolie) 
  • Eyebrow scissiors
  • Your bathroom mirror 

What You'll Do

  1. Brush your eyebrow hairs up above the top of your brow line.
  2. Make sure you’re not about to trim into your eyebrow line. 
  3. Carefully trim the hairs that extend past the top of the eyebrow line. 
  4. Brush the trimmed hairs off of your face. 
  5. Remember to do the same thing on the other side. 

2. Tweezing

If you’re worried about accidentally ruining your eyebrows, tweezing is the safest method for managing your eyebrows. 

You don’t have to worry about big mistakes while tweezing your eyebrows because tweezing removes one hair at a time, so if it’s starting to look like you’re doing it wrong, you can just stop head to your local barbershop. 

The only downside to tweezing your eyebrows is that its kind of an annoying pain, and if you’re not used to it, this can be really uncomfortable.

What You'll Need

  • A pair of tweezers
  • Your bathroom mirror

What You'll Do

  1. Look for the rogue hairs along the sides and corners of your eyebrows.
  2. Pluck each hair away from the direction it’s growing. 
  3. Don’t give up – it’s painful but it’ll be worth it in the end. 

3. Shaving

If you’re used to shaving on a daily basis, then this may be the ideal method for you, and your eyebrows.

Just note: Attempting to shave your eyebrows with a multi-blade shaving razor is a bad idea as this razor will not be able to follow the natural line of your eyebrow. If you want to pull this off, you’ll need to use a single blade straight razor. 

These razor blades are able to shave the skin with little to no irritation, and you’ll have more freedom with the blade which will allow you to enhance the natural shape of your eyebrows. 

Don’t try this without first reading our Ultimate Guide To Shaving With A Straight Razor.

What You'll Need

  • A straight razor
  • Eyebrow brush (spoolie)
  • A clear shaving gel (not foam)
  • A warm shower (helps prepare your skin for shaving)
  • Your bathroom mirror

What You'll Do

Once you’ve taken a warm shower:

  1. Apply your clear shaving gel
  2. Use your eyebrow brush to place the hair you’re not ready to shave out of the way.
  3. Carefully shave the excess hairs that are grown along the sides and corners of your eyebrows. Use the lining of your eyebrow as a starting point and shave away. 
  4. Remember to take breaks and look at yourself in the mirror periodically to ensure you’re keeping the shape symmetrical with your other eyebrow. 

Conclusion

Remember to take your time and start off with the hairs furthest away from the shape of your eyebrow. If you’re a complete beginner, starting off with tweezing is the safest method you could choose since you won’t be able to make big mistakes. 

Now that you know how to manage your eyebrows, it’s time to walk into your bathroom, and come out looking like a whole new person.
