Default Why Are Thick Eyebrows Considered Unattractive?

I have no problems with thick eyebrows unless they try to make me look like Bert from Sesame Street...

I notice that everytime I went to a nail or hair salon in the mall, they would always ask if I would like for them to 'shape' my eyebrows for me. Mind you that my eyebrows do have their own arch like shape which I love because I inherited them from my grandfather (from my mom's side) and from my dad. They are thick but not to the point where they have to be plucked. This past summer, I finally decided to let the salon stylist shape my eyebrows to a more rounder appearance. They looked fine, but I believe the wax strips used is causing my eyebrows to come in slower. They've regained their arch shape, but the part where my brows end towards the side of my face are much thinner than the ends towards the front of my face.

I really love thick eyebrows (not man brow thick). IMO they give the face a more becoming natural beauty appearance.

So why are they deemed unattractive?


Thinking of using some BT on my brows when I purchase some... dammit where's that little plotting emoticon when I need it???

My aunt is always saying that I should pluck my eyebrows.Also, in the nail and hair salon, I'm always asked if I would like my eyebrows plucked as well. I'm assuming that plucking the brows is a popular cosmetic routine.

It's just a trend

I was a teenager in the 80-s and back then it was a trend to have super thick eyebrows
I'm sure the trend will come back sooner or later. Trends go back & forth all the time.

I also find thick eyebrows very beautiful if they have an arch and some shape...

To whom? They need to get their heads examined.

I wish I had thicker eyebrows. They are growing in a little thicker but I have to remind the woman who does my waxes to keep them thick. I once went to a woman who waxed and plucked them way too thin and it took me forever to have them grow back. Now I demand that my waxes are merely shape ups. I prefer thicker eyebrows!

I think thick eyebrows are very much becoming fashionable again. In the couture runway shows, many designers have taken to drawing very heavy eyebrows on the models.

Personally, I have thick eyebrows and I love them. I always ask them to not make my eyebrows too thin when I get them done.

Me too!
I never used to like my eyebrows either because they are sooooo dark and bushy and meet in the middle . I used to get teased growing up. But, thick eyebrows are coming back in style now.

I think there is a difference between wanting them plucked and shaped and wanting them to be thin. I think thick brows that have been professionally or purposfully shaped and defined (whether through plucking or waxing it doesn't matter to me) ALWAYS look better than someone who just has a slight natural arch to me.

My best friend has the thickes brow EVER and when she gets them shaped it frames her face so beautifully because they are still really thick.

I personally love thick brows. I have thin ones, but I fill mine in to give them a thicker appearance.

Maybe they dont want you to have THIN brows at the shop when thye ask you if u want them done, they maybe think that defining the arch would look really pretty on you (just like on my friend)

I didn't know anyone considered thick eyebrows as unattractive. I would agree that the stray hairs need to be plucked so they are not unruly and have a good shape. I love and have thick eyebrows.

As someone with thin, blonde eyebrows, I think dark, thick, well groomed eyebrows are GORGEOUS...but youknow you always want what you don't have....

That would make sense. But I would have to learn how to shape my own brows because they seem to be thinner from when I had them shaped this past summer.

I shape my own eyebrows with a razor. It's not too hard. I just shave off the ones that have strayed from underneath the arch and let the top do it's own thing. Sometimes I may define them a lil more by making the top a more diagonal so it creates a more drammtic arch underneath

I just use a plain ole sing blade disposable razor. Not very sophisticated but definately easy!!

NObody touches my eyebrows but me. I have naturally thick brows, and I pluck underneath to enhance the arch. I just started doing it this past year and I like the way it looks. I just don't trust people - same reason why I don't get pedicures, manicures, or massages - I have two hands and a boyfriend thank you very much!

I agree. I was watching a documentary on the Golden Age of Hollywood and one of the people interviewed actually spoke about how the overly plucked eyebrows of the starlets made them look older by like 10 years.

I've been attacked by an overeager threader before and it's a very dramatic difference.

As long as you keep them groomed and they are in proportion to your face, there is nothing wrong with thick eyebrows.
