    What do you think about men who pluck their eyebrows? Some guys just need to pluck the middle so that they don't have a unibrow and some go a bit overboard. Some guys are lucky and have naturally nice and controlled eyebrows (bastards, haha). Some guys probably should be plucking their eyebrows and don't. Some guys can do it well and you would never notice that they trim and shape their eyebrows, but they are perfect. What do you prefer?

    Personally, this is how I like mine to look:

    If I left them natural, I would look like Burt from Sesame Street.

    I will go ahead and say that my eyebrows are naturally beautiful. I mean, from time to time, I have to take care of the middle area, but even that's like a twice a year thing. I have a gorgeous arch, and I've even had women tell me that they're jealous. I feel that it's your body, your choice. You do whatever you feel makes you comfortable, and whatever you feel makes you attractive. To hell with everyone else.

    I had a unibrow removed by electrolysis. I just try to keep everything trimmed and neat. I don't care for the overly tweezed look that is called "Staten Island Eyebrow" in the NYC area but if it makes those people happy who am I to judge?

    I have never had to pluck my eyebrows. Not sure if this is a good or a bad thing.

    I never had to do anything with my 'brows. They look normal to me, however I've been told by many ladies I have "bedroom eyes".

    I've never had to pluck because my hair is so fair, I did date a guy that shaved the middle area. I guess he thought it was easier? I didn't know until he told me.

    I don't do it, i knew a girl who was doing it in the car, very annoying as she would get for one actually steping on the break and stopping at a red light.
    But i have to admit i love the look of them in perfect shape.

    @submissivegirl83
    I am very surprised that you don't pluck.

    Judging from your pictures, you don't need to.

    Why is that? You see the color of my hair... did you see any spare hairs up there? I guess I got a break in that department I'm pretty hairless all over.

    heck no. The biggest turn-off for me is a man with plucked brows. It's okay to manage a unibrow, but please, PLEASE do not shape or arch your eyebrows.

    I had a uni-brow for years until my wife insisted that I let her tweezer out the middle
    part, which she did. She did not touch any other part of the eyebrows...I would not
    have allowed it.

    The center has never grown back, so I have not had to do it again.

    I have to pluck my unibrow as well as my eyebrows. Most of the time I will just quickly shave off the uni, but try to clean it up about once a week. I also trim my eyebrows or I as well would look like Burt from Sesame Street.

    sometimes i'll get one wild hair that decides to curl & stick up instead of laying straight like the rest & the rebel will get snatched out...other than that, i leave them alone...

    I have really thick brows so I routinely "clean" them up. I don't shape them or anything, but those two thick bushes most certainly need regular cropping.

    Even with the maintenance, my brows are still very thick. Thicker than most.

    I occasionally pluck the middle part of my brow to avoid a unibrow look, but it's really quite fine hairs so I doubt anyone but me can really see them. I have been told, however, that my brows have excellent shape and I've been asked if I do shape them (I don't). So I guess I'm for the most part lucky.
