Well-groomed, male eyebrows look confident, serious and sexy. Why do trimmed eyebrows make your appearance perfect? Here’s how you show your face in the right light and what’s important in the care of your eyebrows.
Nowadays, eyebrow plucking is no longer a topic just for women. Well-formed and dense men’s brows seem charismatic and give you a strong charisma. Do you know how to properly pluck your eyebrows as a man? Or what the arc over the eye reveals about your character? We’ll tell ya.
What do well-kept eyebrows say about men? Which eyebrow shape suits me?
In fact, the shape of the eyebrows in both men and women shows a certain personality. As a rule, the natural shape of the brow is exactly the one that best suits its wearer.
In addition, eyebrows on the face have an important function: they protect the eyes and support nonverbal communication.
Which eyebrow shape suits me?
Are you more the sort of charismatic, self-confident type or rather the creative, reserved one? Of course, these character traits are not the only crucial factor for the appropriate shape of the eyebrow. Rather, the shape of your face also plays a role.
A square faced shape works particularly well with flat, non- arched eyebrows. They slightly shorten the face and make it look fuller.
An oval face, however, looks better with slightly curved, very dense eyebrows. This draws attention to your eyes instead of making the face look even rounder.
Speaking of round faces: here, wide eyebrows which end with an angled momentum fit particularly well. This has a slimming effect on your face and makes it well proportioned.
Eyebrows and their characteristics
With well-groomed eyebrows, you can easily highlight the part of your personality that you particularly like.
Thick and angled
The energetic, charming and generous man wears his eyebrows thick and bent. He is also said to be a passionate lover. The most charismatic bearer of this eyebrow shape is none other than George Clooney.
Thin and bent
The born superstar. Men with thin, curved eyebrows are particularly creative and therefore excellently positioned in the artistic industry and the show business. This is proven by Pharrell Williams, a successful singer and a well-known representative of this eyebrow shape.
Thick and angular
This eyebrow shape looks strong and masculine. However, it often hides the gentle type of man. Sensitivity, care and attention are among his personality traits. Actor Ryan Gosling expresses his personality with this form.
Thick and shiny
Men wearing this eyebrow shape are particularly in love with detail. In addition, they are some of the most passionate seducers and attract the opposite sex by their mysterious nature particularly. Best proof of this is heartthrob Robert Pattinson.
Thick and bent
Thick, curved eyebrows stand for a generous man who is always honest with his opinion. He supposedly prefers slim, attractive women, whom he can always present to the outside world. One of the most famous bearer of this eyebrow shape is Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio.
Did you know that even the beard shape of a man reveals something about his character? Whether your beard perfectly matches your personality, of course, depends on the right beard care.
Naturally beautiful eyebrows – with our instructions it works!
Unshaped or fuzzy eyebrows are quickly neglected. The best way to prevent this is to reach for the tweezers: plucking eyebrows is the order of the day.
It is important to maintain the natural shape of the brow and not to pluck it any more than absolutely necessary. Only the superfluous hairs should carefully be removed.
Basically, with a large face, the hair bow over the eye can be quite strong. However, with a light hair color your eyebrows should not be too wide and dark – that visually crushes the eyes.
Plucking eyebrows – that’s how it works!
In their natural growth, the eyebrows begin at the level of the inner corner of the eye and end at the level of the outer corner of the eye. The plucking serves to support this natural form, while hairs between the eyebrows and at the temples should also be removed.
To pluck, you only need a pair of tweezers. The most suitable are those with two beveled ends, as this makes the hair easier to grip.
Start by plucking between the eyebrows over the bridge of the nose. With the thumb and forefinger of one hand, tighten the skin around the hair to be removed. Use the other hand to guide the tweezers.
Place the tweezers as far down as possible on the hairline and pull the hair out in the direction of growth with a quick jerk. That’s how you remove all superfluous hair between the brows.
When the area between the eyebrows is free of unwanted hair, work piece by piece towards the outer corner of the eye. Pluck everything that grows out too far outward beyond the height of the corner of the eye.
Lastly, the small hairs below the brow arch should be removed. In this case, pull the skin particularly tight, because the skin directly above the eyelid is very sensitive. Tightly pulled skin makes the plucking less painful.
Do not pluck the small hairs over the eyebrows. Otherwise, it may quickly look like your eyebrows are pressed down.
Tips against pain when plucking eyebrows
Unfortunately, eyebrow plucking never goes completely without pain. Though fortunately, there are a few simple tricks you can use to alleviate this pain.
- Take a warm shower before plucking or wash your face with warm water – this enlarges the pores so that the hairs can be pulled out more easily.
- Redness and swelling after plucking can be avoided by cooling the skin around the eyebrows with an ice cube.
- With moisturizer you can help the stressed skin to regenerate faster.
- Also, if you pluck regularly, the skin will become less stressed over time and you will feel less pain when plucking. The advantage of this is that you don’t have to remove a large number of hairs each time, but with regular treatment each time only the few superfluous, which have grown in the meantime.
With our instructions and our tips it your eyebrow care will improve rapidly. However, if you are dissatisfied with the shape of your eyebrows or are struggling with gaps in your brows, there is still the possibility of an eyebrow transplant. See the next section for more information.
Denser eyebrows thanks to an eyebrow transplant
Your eyebrows don’t want to grow the way you want them to? There are always gaps or your eyebrows do not grow evenly? Then an eyebrow transplant is the right solution for you.
With a densification of the eyebrows, gaps can not only be closed, but permanently protected against irregular hair growth. This works by simply removing strong hair follicles from a donor area at the back of the head and replanting them at the appropriate locations above the eye.
Due to the modern FUE technique, this treatment is particularly gentle with almost no pain and no scars. Of course, the experienced specialists at My Perfect Hair Clinic ensure that the donor area at the back of the head is kept as small as possible. The remaining hair will then easily cover this area, so you do not have to fear any visible traces.
After one or two procedures you can look forward to denser, evenly growing eyebrows. The perfect shape, which fits your face exactly is optimally tailored to your type and your individual wishes. Gaps in the eyebrows will then be a thing of the past.
Conclusion: Perfecting your eyebrows with the right
Even for men, it makes a significant difference whether eyebrows have the perfect shape and are optimally cared for or not. Strong, well-formed eyebrows give their wearer self-confidence and a charismatic appearance.
In order to achieve – and maintain – this shape it makes sense to pluck on a regular basis. Tweezers are used to remove the superfluous hairs below the eyebrows, at the temples and between the brows above the bridge of the nose. Tighten the skin around the hair with the thumb and forefinger of one hand and pluck it out with the tweezers in the other hand. This works best with a quick jerk.
Regular plucking keeps your eyebrows in exactly the right shape. If you have eyebrows or irregular hair growth, the specialists at My Perfect Hair Clinic can help you. Thanks to an eyebrow transplant, your brows will regrow substantially and tightly, so you’ll never have to worry about their perfect shape again.
