The Importance of Eyebrow Grooming

A key step to a good grooming routine for men includes eyebrow grooming and maintenance. Caring for your brows and paying them a little attention can make a huge difference in your appearance. And “manscaping” those eyebrows (trust us!)  will make any man feel more confident.

Whether you opt for a low-maintenance routine to shape your brows OR it’s a more permanent brow look, shape or color calling your name, we’re here to help. 👏🏽

Eyebrow Shapes for Men

Before getting into the nitty-gritty of the eyebrow-grooming process, it’s important to understand your personal eyebrow goals, specifically, the shape you wish to achieve.

While eyebrow trends will come and go, shapes like round and flat brows have stood the test of time for both men and women.

Popular Men’s Eyebrow Shapes

  • Flat eyebrows: Straight, or flat, eyebrows are exactly that—straight across the brow line, and often left a bit fuller and bushier, with a taper at the ends. Flat yet thick eyebrows are great for men with smaller eyes who wish to add emphasis to their brows.
  • Rounded eyebrows: For a more masculine look, rounded eyebrows are perfect for men with larger eyes and wide foreheads. Rounded eyebrows taper at the ends with no hard angles and help fill space and round out the face.
  • Arched eyebrows: To add definition and balance to a round face, arched eyebrows are it! Just be sure to keep the arch soft and avoid adding too much emphasis at the peak of the brow. This will create a more natural arched look.
  • Eyebrow slits: Have you seen it? This eyebrow trend has been so popular and many male celebs have rocked the look. For this trending style, vertical cuts are carefully made in the brow line with a razor or via threading. For the man who desires a more edgy look, eyebrow slits do just that and give brows a BIG personality BOOST.

  1. Give eyebrow threading a try—Eyebrow threading for men is the same as eyebrow threading for anyone! It is a quick, 100% natural brow grooming method that will deliver clean and carefree eyebrows for weeks. Guys, say goodbye to tweezers and trimming tools! 👋🏻 Brow threading is perfect for achieving a well-groomed brow look and precise shape while keeping a full, natural eyebrow appearance.
  2. Go for eyebrow tinting—When masculine, full -looking eyebrows are your goal, eyebrow tinting is where it’s at! For definition or to add some color to your barely there brows, an eyebrow tint is the answer. This brow service is particularly great for men who want to hide grey brow hairs or help the appearance of thinning eyebrows.

Give These DIY Tips a Shot:

If you’re not quite ready to give a professional brow service a go, here are some DIY brow tips for men. While these can all be done from home, when you grow tired of messing with and trying to maintain that perfect brow look, The Lash Lounge is here!

  1. Use an eyebrow brush—Whether you call it an eyebrow brush, comb or spoolie, a small brush is the perfect tool to quickly clean up your brows. Brushing your brows in the direction they naturally grow will help them look well-groomed. Going for a fuller brow? Try brushing your brows in a slightly upward motion.
  2. Don’t fear the eyebrow pencil—Finding an eyebrow pencil that matches the color of your hair and adding light strokes to your brows is a great way to control the shape and definition of your eyebrows. While eyebrow tinting is a longer-lasting solution to fuller-looking eyebrows (up to four weeks’ worth 😲), using an eyebrow pencil is a quick fix.
  3. Try eyebrow gel—If you’re struggling to keep your brow hairs in place and looking nice and tidy, try an eyebrow gel. Brush your brows in place first, then finish with a gel to keep them there. Just remember: a little gel (we’re talking very little) goes a long way!
  4. Moisturize—One of the BEST ways to keep your natural brows looking healthy is by moisturizing the skin around them. Don’t let flaky skin be the downfall of your handsome brows.
