Sarah JacobsBrush your eyebrows up and cut along your natural brow line to get rid of excess length.Many men don’t know what to do with their eyebrows. Apart from plucking or shaving stray hairs in the middle, they don’t do much.
Most men, however, should be trimming them every so often so that they can keep length and bulk at bay. Sometimes a barber will offer to do this, running the shaver along a comb to get rid of the excess length.
This is the wrong way to do it, according to Sania Vucetaj, a brow grooming expert and owner of Sania’s Brow Bar, who has been tweezing and trimming both men’s and women’s eyebrows for 25 years.
Vucetaj says this will cause the brows to look uneven and too short or choppy with holes. And when the brows grow back, they’ll look like “spider legs”, she says.
There is a correct way to do this, fortunately. According to Vucetaj, what you should do is brush your eyebrows up and cut along your brow line, cutting away any excess length. This will keep them neat and trim and ensure any holes in your brows will be covered up.
Vucetaj uses a mascara applicator to do this, but if you don’t have one, a comb will work just as well.
