Or ask your child if they would like to go to a salon and have their unibrow fixed? My dd is going on 10 now. Shes begun getting interested in makeup and fixxing her hair up and such. I dont know if i should bring up the brow though?

I didn't do any of that until I was 13. Is she being teased at school about it?

You could just ask her if she has any interest in trimming her eyebrows. I wouldn't say "do you want to get your unibrow fixed." If she's self conscious about it, she can say yes. If she isn't, then it's a more innocent question.

Does she shave her legs/under arms? Because that would be a n easire way to bring it up, too, just asking if she's interested in shaving/plucking in general.

When I was in school to be an esthetician there was a mom who brought in her 11 year old twin daughters to have most everything waxed.  Arms, legs, faces.  They were some seriously hairy girls.

I would wait for her to come to me to talk about it. The same with shaving legs and wearing makeup (although that isn't an automatic).

I'd be inclined to say that except as an older child/younger teen I never would have been comfortable talking to my mom about it. I was very self conscious and had low self esteem and while my relationship with my mom was fine, we just didn't talk about that sort of thing.

My daughter started getting hers waxed at 10. I just asked her if she wanted to get hers done when I got mine done.
