Eyebrows - what to you do to them?

I know people that shave them, get threaded, waxed, or just plain pluck. A few women I know don't do anything.

I didn't start plucking until I was 27! I should have started way before but I really didn't know how. Recently, at 40, I started using an eyebrow pencil - I can't believe the difference a little pencil makes in defining your eyes!

So what do you do to yours?

  • I have light brown and blond eyebrows and the outer corners are sparse and almost non-visible without a light pencil line drawn in to kind of "connect the dots!" LOL I use cold wax strips to taper the outer edges and remove the strays on the under side of my brows (closer to the lids) and between my eye brows. I like cold-waxing better than hot wax, no different than ripping off a band aid!

    However, I am seriously considering having them professionally and permanently zapped via laser hair removal into the shape I usually keep them. :o)

  • Love threading. Since I tried it, I won't go back to waxing ever. It's so much better, meaning it lasts longer and the results are much better.

  • I get mine waxed once in a while and I tweeze in between waxings.

  • I wax the crap out of mine every couple months. I would do it more often I just don't normally think about it until I tint them again and they are super BUSHY! I do my own, also most of the women in my family come to me to have theirs waxed every so often.

  • Tweeze. I tried waxing a couple of times, but I prefer tweezing.

  • I tweeze mine, but they have been doing this for years that only a few actually grow back in.
