What do I do about my eyebrows?
You might be ignoring them, but unless you’re Peter Gallagher, you’re definitely not pulling off the bushy look. But handle with extreme care when it comes to hacking away at two of your face’s most prominent features. You don’t want to overdo it and be left with barely-there wisps that prevent you from looking surprised by the next crazy thing Trump does.
If your brows are too bushy:
1. Brush them up with a comb. 2. Run scissors or a trimmer along your brow line, removing the top millimetre of hair. Brush your brows back down to assess, and repeat if they still look overly bushy. 3. Tweeze any strays that surface beyond
your natural brow line.
If your brows are indistinguishable from one another:
Use the rule of thumb: place your thumb at the centrepoint between your brows, a bit above your actual brow line, then remove all of the stray hairs directly below it. We recommend plucking so the patch doesn’t grow back prickly within a few days.
If you just don’t know where to begin:
Enlist the services of a pro. Communicate that you want a natural but still defined shape. This will make at-home maintenance a lot easier going forward — just trim back anything that pops up beyond the defined brow line.
