Eyebrows and men are often a very delicate topic.
Some think men even touching their eyebrows is gay and feminine. Others pluck their eyebrows like there is no end to it and love it.
Plucking your eyebrows should be a part of every man’s grooming routine as it can improve your appearance tenfold.
But most men and even many women do not know how to do their eyebrows correctly.
Plucking your eyebrows is an art. Too much and you risk looking like a girl, too little and you look like you don’t take care of yourself.
In this eyebrow guide for men, you will learn how you can get powerful and masculine eyebrows that improve your look tremendously in 4 simple steps!
How Good Eyebrows can Change your Whole Life
Plucking your eyebrows is not gay, feminine or anything like that.
Understand that you want to improve yourself in EVERY area of your life and one of these areas is style.
You want to look as smooth and sexy as possible. And thus eyebrows are part of the game as well!
Improving something as simple as your eyebrows yields immensely powerful results that reach over in every area of your life.
Women find you more attractive and you will have an easier time with women in general. (FACT!)
But it’s not just about women. It’s about people in general.
People respect you more when you are well styled and groomed.
You will make a better impression when talking to other men – successful men. They too look at who takes care of themselves and who doesn’t.
In my experience, successful people pay attention to things like a good appearance even more than others.
Why? Because it reflects that you are disciplined and take care of yourself. It basically shows that you possess certain key qualities for success, that every man should have!
If your style and grooming are on point, there will be a whole new world of opportunities that will open themselves up to you.
Good Looking Eyebrows Make You Feel Like a Million Bucks
But the most important thing about having good style and good eyebrows? They make you feel amazing!
This is not only true for perfect eyebrows but for every part of improving your style or grooming (once you get past the initial steps of getting out of your comfort zone).
You will get this fucking amazing feeling when you walk through the streets perfectly groomed and styled.
You know you are the shit. Nothing can stop you.
Your walk changes. Your posture changes. Your aura changes.
Every girl that walks by you notices you and your powerful eye contact (something that gets improved by good eyebrows a lot!).
People will see that you have changed. They will feel it. It’s not about your clothes, it’s not about your grooming, it’s all about your feeling.
You may think that I exaggerate but it’s true. It’s all about your self-confidence. And your style and grooming are a big part of how you feel about yourself so you better not neglect them.
Now let’s talk about how your eyebrows actually improve the way you look!
Eyebrows Change the Way You Communicate With the World
Most people don’t even notice what a huge effect eyebrows have on your face. They can improve literally every feature of your face in seconds!
Think about it. Everybody sees your eyebrows all the time. They are never covered. And on top of that, they are right in the center of your face.
Everybody looks at your face first. That is where they will take their very first impression from (yes it’s cruel, get over it!).
They don’t look at your sculpted biceps, massive pecs or huge v-taper. No, everybody looks at your face first so make sure it looks as good as possible.
Eyebrows influence the way your face communicates with the world and how the world perceives you.
Ungroomed, scruffy eyebrows distract. I don’t know how often I was distracted by a person’s huge unibrow and didn’t get a word they were saying.
You always want to have the full attention and a presence that fills the room. Nothing should take away from the point you are trying to make.
Especially not something as easily avoidable as your eyebrows.
How Perfect Eyebrows Improve your Face
Your eyebrows are connected to the most important features of your face: Your eyes, your cheekbones, and your zygomatic arch.
If you do it right, your eyebrows will make these areas pop a lot more and give your whole face a more sexy and masculine look.
They can make you look more mature and manly, which is especially useful if you have a round baby face.
They also improve your facial expressions given them a more defined look. Think a better smile and a better “get the fuck out of my way before I kill you” look.
Of course plucking your eyebrows won’t be able to completely change your facial structure (that is a topic for another post, YES IT’S POSSIBLE!) but it will be a good start.
How do Perfect and Masculine Eyebrows Look like
So what makes perfect eyebrows on a man?
First, let me tell you what kind of eyebrows you definitely don’t want to have:
1: a scruffy, hairy, ungroomed unibrow that makes you look like a neanderthal
2: girly eyebrows
There is nothing worse than having neanderthal or girly eyebrows.
What you do want is eyebrows that are thick, dense, defined, dark. These make you look powerful and masculine.
You won’t be able to change your eyebrow genetics and you will have to live with what God gave you.
But you still want to make the best out of those eyebrows and I’ll tell you exactly how you can accomplish that.
Even if you have some girly thin and light eyebrows right now, I have a solution for you (Yes baby, you will get some thicker and darker eyebrows!)
Choosing the Best Tweezers for your Eyebrows
Before we start with the actual plucking, we need to talk about what you will need to shape your eyebrows into those of an aesthetic demigod.
You don’t want to use the cheap tweezers that you find in every drugstore. These are for removing splinters out of your foot, not plucking your eyebrows.
Seriously don’t use cheap tweezers. I have yet to find a good pair of cheap tweezers that didn’t disappoint me.
All they do is cut your hair or they won’t even grip the tiny hairs which lead to you shouting at the mirror in frustration.
For your eyebrows, you want some high-quality tweezers that will make the procedure feel like a bliss.
I recommend these high-quality tweezers from Tweezerman. Tweezerman are the gold standard in terms of tweezers. They have a perfect tip making it very easy to pluck your eyebrows.
Yes I know they are expensive and it’s just a pair of tweezers. But keep in mind that it’s a one-time investment that will last you a lifetime.
And don’t forget, never be cheap on yourself, especially not your face!
Men’s Eyebrow Basics – 4 Steps to Perfect, Powerful, Masculine Eyebrows
There are really only 4 steps to perfect eyebrows guys and only one of the first step is a true must. The others are optional and dependent on the individual.
Every single one of these steps is easy peasy and not complicated. Everybody can do it. You will only need around 5 minutes to make your eyebrows look awesome.
Yes, only 5 minutes, probably even less than that once you get used to it, and only every other week.
That time investment is nothing in terms of the benefit you will gain and the embarrassment you will avoid.
Men’s Eyebrow Grooming – Guidelines
There is a fine line between plucking too much and too little. Plucking your eyebrows is a dangerous game and a delicate procedure.
Plucking a couple of tiny hairs too much can be the difference between looking like a guy that gets all the ladies and the guy that something just looks off about.
Especially we men that never really bother with things like that have a hard time getting it right. But don’t worry, with these steps and guidelines you will be fine.
You only want to give yourself a shape up, nothing more. Don’t go and mindlessly attack every hair that pops out.
Just give yourself a cleanup and always follow the natural shape of your eyebrows.
Don’t go crazy with shit like arches. Don’t try giving yourself a completely new eyebrow shape. Both will lead to bad looking, girly eyebrows.
1. Destroying the Unibrow
If you want to spend the least amount of time possible on your eyebrows, do this one step and your eyebrows will be ready for action.
This one thing can make the difference between looking like a guy who has zero clue about style to a STYLEMONSTER that all the girls fall for because of his intense eye contact.
This one step is plucking the hairs in between your eyebrows.
You absolutely have to do that. It’s a must.
You should never have a unibrow. NEVER. Not even something resembling a unibrow in the slightest.
You don’t know how often I have talked to some dude who is actually a cool dude that the ladies would beat themselves up over, but they ruin everything with their unibrow.
There shouldn’t be much explanation on how to destroy your unibrow. You take your high-quality tweezers and start plucking the hairs in between your eyebrows.
Again. There is only one rule. Just don’t go crazy and you’ll be fine.
Don’t attack the inner edges of your eyebrows. You don’t want to end up with widely spaced eyebrows that look like a plane could land in between them. This makes you look incredibly slow.
Just pluck the hairs in between them.
There is this rule that states where the perfect eyebrow should start. If you would draw a straight line from the middle of your nostrils up towards your eyebrows, you would have the perfect starting point for your eyebrows.
This works for some but as everybody looks different and has different genetics, it would be far too much for some.
So just try it out carefully. If you like the look, stop. Err one this side of caution.
2. Shaping and Plucking the outer edge of the Eyebrow
Now, this is where most men fuck up.
After they finish destroying their unibrow, they don’t know how to continue and just start attacking every little hair of their eyebrows.
This is the wrong way to go about it and exactly why people end up with stupid looking girly eyebrows like this dude.
The truth is it’s pretty damn simple. The key is to simply focus on the little extra hairs that appear below your eyebrows and not above them.
This will prevent you from doing too much and ending up with girly eyebrows.
Still remain cautious. Only pluck the extra hairs and don’t go overboard. Again, it’s all about giving your brows a little shape up.
That’s it. That’s all you have to know about plucking your eyebrows. Maybe pluck the single hairs at the outside edge of your eyebrows (really only the single hairs) and you are done plucking!
3. Trimming – The Solution for Neanderthal Eyebrows
Now if you have really really bushy eyebrows with long thick hair, you might consider this third step: trimming down your eyebrows a little.
You will need a good pair of sharp scissors with a round tip and a comb.
I repeat. This step is optional and only for individuals who are affected by bushy eyebrows.
Don’t even think about putting scissors to your eyebrows if you already have girly, thin eyebrows.
But even if you have long bushy eyebrows you have to be careful. You can quickly mess it up and go one step too far.
If you are unsure if the next cut would be too much, don’t do it.
4. Getting Darker, Thicker and More Masculine Eyebrows
Some might think that this step is way too much. But I think this step is probably the second most important after the first.
Like I mentioned before, thick, dense and dark eyebrows are very attractive and improve the features of your face.
Dark dense eyebrows are a sign of a high testosterone level which is perceived by others subconsciously.
So it makes sense to make your eyebrows as masculine and testosterone looking as possible.
This step is especially important for those of you that are plagued with piss thin eyebrows. Dudes with already thick eyebrows probably won’t need this step so feel free to skip it.
Darker, Thicker Eyebrows with Oils
I always naturally had rather thick and dense eyebrows. Still, I searched for a method that would improve them even more and particularly make them darker.
So I started an experiment:
I would take some olive oil and put it on my eyebrows with a q-tip before going to bed and see what would happen.
At first, I was skeptical. What the hell am I wasting my time with, I thought.
And nothing seemed to happen for a long time, well at least I wasn’t noticing anything. But it became a routine and as it only took a couple of seconds, I kept doing it.
But after a couple of weeks, things started to change. My eyebrows seemed a little darker and thicker. I especially noticed this when I saw some older pictures of mine.
Also, other people started commenting how my hair seemed way darker and my eyes were popping more all of a sudden.
The difference probably isn’t as big as I make it sound right now but it is there, although subtle.
I think it is at least worth a try especially for those guys with girly eyebrows.
I have to say I feel super uncomfortable and feminine writing this but hey, I don’t want to withhold any information for you and be as transparent as possible.
So I will tell you everything I know. For some dudes, this advice might be the key advice that helps them with their eyebrows. You never know!
Try it. It really only takes 2 seconds. Take a q-tip, dump it in olive oil and put it on your eyebrows before you go to bed.
Don’t expect instant results. Give it a few weeks and see for yourself.
I am going to try it soon and then let you know what I think about it.
EDIT 12-25-17: I have now used castor oil for roughly a year and I personally do better with olive oil. I barely saw any changes and on top of that, the castor oil kinda dried out my skin below the eyebrows.
I don’t react well with castor oil in general though but very well with olive oil, so just try out both and see what gives you better results.
What you Should Never Do to your Eyebrows
There are a few smart asses out there who say:
“Dan bro, this is such a waste of time. This whole eyebrow thing is so simple. Just shave off the hairs in between your eyebrows and then trim them down with hair clippers. Easy.”
This is the dumbest thing you could do.
Never and I truly mean never shave your eyebrows. Everybody will see what you have down and it will be extremely visible because all of the hair will be growing back at the same time.
And trimming your eyebrows with a hair clipper? Best case? You will have uneven patchy eyebrows. Worst case? You will be missing an eyebrow.
Believe me, I’ve seen it more than you would think. Girls that did this and were laughed at and boys who did this out of desperation because they haven’t had the fatherly guidance that I am giving you.
Just don’t do it.
