Subject: Eyebrows
From: mousethief
Date: 01 Mar 01 - 06:19 PM

Okay, this is a bizarre question but it's really bugging me. As I'm growing older, my eyebrows are starting to get longer and bushier. This is normal, and I wouldn't have any problem with it, except they're so limp they hang down and get in my eyes. Is there such a thing as eyebrow wax or something? I keep trimming them but that seems kinda stupid.

Any ideas?

Alex

PS don't even ASK about my ears or my nose!

LOL I think it's part of the normal aging process for some of you fellers. My father-in-law has the same kind of thing going on. He never really complains much about it, but I did get a giggle from his reaction when he went to the barber for a pre-wedding haircut and the barber trimmed them. Maybe they are too long if people feel they have to cut them for you. Enjoy your changes, or you can just opt for braids...*bseg*

Your eyebrows are falling in your eyes??? And I thought I had a problem with two chin hairs! Have you considered combing them back to cover the bald spot? I feel a Song Challenge coming on...

Sorry, but my sad mind's immediate reaction was.......... Shave them off and draw them in with pencil! My Dad has a similar problem, he combs his and trims them occasionally. Maybe you could wax them like moustaches and twist them into little handlebar type thingys!!! Sorry, its late - and I've had a hard day......not being much help am I? Lucy

Just keep them trimmed. Mine go quite long too - trouble is that having curly hair, I've got curly eyebrows too! Not radically curly of course, just enough that they'll curl round to get the end into your eye when the odd one gets way long.

Just thank god my nose hair's straight, or I'd have a helluva job trimming that!

Have you considered braiding them, M.T.?

Seriously, just keep trimming them. I have the same problem. I figure if they ever meet in the middle I'll just tie 'em in a knot. Gives you a very nice angry, yet intense look. Next time they need an actor to play a psycho, I'm ready for the casting call. Serial killer strangles 6 - then goes and picks a lovely little dittie on his D-28 while awaiting for the arresting officers to show up.

It's the ear hair that really bugs me. (We lose it in the places we need it, and it crops up in the places we don't.) The ear hair bugs me so much, I've stopped trimming it, and instead actually enjoy the masochism of plucking each one of the bastards out with a tweezers at bi-monthly intervals. (That'll teach 'em!)

Par for the late 40's on, dude; don't let it bother you. Never saw anyone wax them. It actually makes you look distinguished, but if it bothers you just trim them back with nail scissors or a razor when you feel like it.

That's alright. I'm 21 and mine just meet in the middle. I wonder what they'll be like 40 years from now. I can see the Weekly World News headlines: Man Suffocates in own Eyebrows!

I've been growing out my beard and mustache and have had a hard time eating yogurt. What kind of wax is best for a mustache?

Hagbard, thank you for giving me the biggest laugh of the day. Man suffocates in own eyebrows. It's great! There is a specific wax for mustashes. Try an olde tyme barber shop - you know, two chairs no waiting. Or the Vermont Country Store in Orton, VT. (think they're online)

Alex, there is an eyebrow set. A sort of clear gel-type concoction you brush on. Max Factor may carry it. It makes your eyebrows stiff and glossy, though. Could be dangerous if they are quite long. Might end up stabbing the Missus every time you give her a smooch. Maybe you ought to conside trimming. Don't shave them off!

How do all those ancient politicians get theirs to curl up? Bushy, curly brows meeting in the middle. Goes well with the bad toupes. It all looks as if it fell out of the sky and landed on their heads. That was mean...sorry. tee hee

I'm not one to split hairs but ... I think you need to have it trimmed Alex. Try not to let hair conditioner run down your face and maybe try a little styling gel on those wild hairs! Wow .... I was sooo worried about you yesterday. NOW, I'm really worried! LL

if you want to trim them.. brush them upwards and anything that sticks out beyond the top of the eye brow can be trimmed with a pair of scissors... or go to a beatuy salon.. they'll be happy to wax them for you, and pluck out any curling in the wrong directions.....

My eyebrows are kinda bushy...they make me look weird, at only 22. Maybe because they're black and the rest of my hair all over is red.

BTW Good to see you back, Hagbard. It's been a long time since I've seen you. Welcome back, old friend.

Justa Picker have I got a deal for you! My husband was presented with a pair (one on each separate occasion) of electric nose hair clippers by a Japanese client. They work great on ear hair too. Just grip one in each hand and insert in selected pair of orfices and........ Voila! smooth as a baby's bottom.

One of the few genetic traits that is actually carried on the Y chromosome is the gene for ear hair; it is also an age-linked characteristic.

Eyebrows - use a toothbrush to brush 'em upwards and yank out any that are too long (or cut with scissors if you're squamish). And if they meet in the middle, Gallagher-style, just pluck 'em out. I've been ripping out rogue eyebrows since I was 14 (in the privacy of my own bathroom, of course) and it's actually quite satisfying (sorry, probably rather more of an admission than you'd want!).
As for moustaches, if you want to wax, use the proofing wax that comes with waxed-cotton jackets if you don't fancy trying to track down some moustache wax.
On the subject of nasal hair trimmers, you just know that it's one of those gadgets you could leave lying around and no-one, but no-one would ever ask to borrow it!

I thought I was just going bald, but no, my hair is actually migrating south through my head and comming out where it used to be hair free, it wouldn't be so bad if it went north again in the summer.

What IS the point of having eyebrows, anyway? Is it just so we can raise one and convince ourselves that we look moody?

My dad twirls his into handlebars - he really does!!!
He has these little twists at the end that stick out.
Mind you - he does look a little bizarre. Especially with his home-made double-lens correcting glasses, which are held together with blue-tack. AND THEN...... he found that because there's two lenses they were heavy and kept falling off the end of his nose, so he started sticky-taping the tops to his forehead. I said it would look better decorated, so he started using the stickers off of apples instead.
I love my dad!!

Tig, it's for whebn you get your livibg by the sweat of your brow (see Genesis--the Book not the Band!) it doesn't keep dripping into your eyes.

I'm well-endowed in the eyebrow dept, and you knowwhat they say abut the size of a man's eyebrows! At nearly 50., I've still got a full head of hair,justbeginning to go grey at the edges (sorry Roger!). When I trod the boards with Stonnall Players a few years ago, the EBs were handy when playing bad guys: a bit of mascara and curl up the long ends: instant Mikado! The same technique works on the 'tache too. Bad luck, girls!

Not a problem here as I never really had much in the way of eyebrows anyway! Now I get these occasional "rogue hairs" that seem to grow about 3 inches overnight at random times.....very weird. I just cut them til the next one decides to go apeshit.
