Many men are becoming more and more interested in trimming their eyebrows. In the past, men weren't expected to groom their eyebrows, even when those brows grew long and unruly. Many men are discovering, however, that regular brow grooming can help them look more approachable, awake and younger. Trimming your brows can be a scary experience, however, especially if you're not quite certain what you're doing and how to approach the job. These tips can help.
To trim your eyebrows, you'll need a small comb, a pair of scissors and a pair of tweezers. Your scissors should be extremely sharp, to cut through the tough hairs, and the tweezers should meet perfectly so you won't have to pull and twist to remove hair. Trim your eyebrows in an extremely well-lit area, so you can see exactly what you're doing in good detail. Use your comb to brush your eyebrows from the center to the edge of your face. Look for hairs that are long and dangle past the edge of your eye. Trim those hairs. Next, brush your brows up toward your scalp. Once again, look for hairs that are much longer than others, and trim them so they are level. Now, brush your brows back into normal position. If your brows are extremely thick and bushy, you may consider thinning them by using your comb to hold the hairs at a predetermined length and cutting off the excess (think of the way your stylist holds the hairs on your head when she's cutting your hair). This can be scary for first-time groomers to tackle. Some companies sell kits you can use to place over your brows for easy trimming. This might be a good option if you're nervous about removing too much. Use your tweezers to pluck out any stray hairs you see between your brows themselves. Tweezers pull hair out by the root, ensuring the brow hair won't grow back as easy-to-spot stubble.
