Unibrow grooming queryI am 24 years old. I have thick unibrows, which have become a bother now. How do I manage/get rid of them?

A bushy unibrow can certainly attract a lot of attention, but it's not the kind of attention that anyone finds desirable. Here's how you could get rid of a bushy unibrow:

  • If you have unmanageable hair growth between what would otherwise be two distinctly separate eyebrows, trimming the hair regularly with a pair of scissors could spare you from the heavy growth. You could also use tweezers to pluck the hair out.
  • There are house waxing kits or wax covered strips easily available that can provide you with all you need to get rid of the unibrow hair. If you aren't too sure about getting this done all by yourself, you could hop into a unisex salon. Waxing helps delay hair growth longer than tweezing or even threading.
  • Threading is another option that you could turn to. Apart from getting rid of the unibrow hair, threading gets your dense eyebrows in shape.
  • Hair removal creams meant for the face are a great option as they do away with the pain waxing or threading. You could find these creams at any pharmacy.
  • You may want to shave off your unibrow if you are in a rush, but mind you, shaving will just give you short term results.
  • Laser hair reduction helps prolong the growth and makes the hair finer. This may be an expensive but an option for long terms basis.
  • Electrolysis is a slow procedure which involves destroying the hair follicle. The effect of this process varies from person to person. It is best to consult a doctor and verify if this hair removal option is best suited for you or not.

Excessive facial hair gives you a shabby and unkempt appearance and will hide your facial features.
