Over a few years I have manged to separate and trim down my brows. But as I get down to shaping them to be more femme I am getting nervous. Any advice on how to create nice brows and not over do it?
I like to keep my eyebrows well maintained. It drives me crazy when they look unruly as the stray hairs start to grow back. There’s really no getting around it that if you do start to shape, thin and/or arch your brows that they will look more feminine. I get my brows threaded (google or youtube it), but you can also have them waxed. If you decide to have a professional groom your brows, tell them what you want. When I get my brows down, I ask the technician to clean them up, but I can also ask them to define them, shape them and thin them…either by a little or by a lot. I would recommend visiting with a professional and telling them you’d like a little more shape to them, but not to overdo it. They are professionals and trust me, you won’t be the first man to ask for a little definition in your brows.
However, the truth is that most men do not groom and trim their eyebrows, so it’s quite likely yours will be noticed when in male mode…but its not very likely that anyone will say anything. How often do you discuss someone’s eyebrows with them?
If you do not want to trim or arch them, you can also cover them up with a really good foundation and use an eyebrow pencil to define them.
One thought on “Ask Hannah!”
My hairdresser asked once if I wanted my brows trimmed and I said yes, so that is cool. She also told me that not a lot of men actually allow this.
