It’s OK if your brows don’t have the perfect arch to them. Under-landscaped is better than over-manicured for two reasons: First, “perfect” brows create a look many guys find too feminine. Second, once you have trimmed and tweezed every hair into place, you need to be fanatical about maintenance every few days, because the new hairs will stand out. Instead, once the unibrow has been resolved, give your brows a general clean-up by following their natural shape with the tweezers, removing only those hairs that appear glaringly above or below the normal ridge of your brow. As you work, move back and forth from one brow to the other, to avoid uneven pruning. Finish by applying a brow gel to help any rebellious hairs lie flat.
What You Need: Brow gel is the little secret stylists swear by to get celebs red-carpet-ready. Virtually colorless, the gel goes on in a thin layer and works just like hair gel to hold uncooperative brow strands in place. Your best option: Tom Ford Brow Gelcomb. [$45; tomford.com]Back to top
