Shaved Eyebrows Meaning

I meet so many women who have shaved eyebrows. To such women, it is the only way they can shape brows, since they are not much familiar with other methods such as threading, waxing or tweezing. Shaved eyebrows means brow hairs that have been partly or completely removed using a shaving razor.

Can I shave Off My Eyebrows?

Most women often contemplate shaving off their eyebrows and then drawing on them. This sounds like a good idea. However, before you do that, here are a few facts you should know about shaving your eye brows off:

  • Your brows have one of the thinnest skin and you are likely to scrap or cut it off if you do not know how to shave brows well. If this happens, you cannot then hide the cuts with clothing as you could do for your bikini line or legs.
  • Brow shaping and waxing is already a tricky process; you will further complicate it if you tried to use a shaving cream and shaving razor and you are likely to ruin your perfect brow shape.
  • Since eyebrow hairs are very coarse, you are likely to create blunt edges when you use a shaving razor compared to tweezing, threading or waxing where your entire eyebrow hair follicle is removed (and it grows back with tapered and feathery edges). These blunt edges due to shaving will make your brow hairs to look much thicker
  • Since shaving removes brow hairs only from your skin level, expect to grow new ones within a very short time and within one or two days, you will begin seeing subtle brows or shadow.

Can I shave Eyebrows and Draw on Them?

If you want to shave your brow hairs and create your own new drawing using the various eyebrow makeup, such as eyebrow powders or pencils, do not forget that your eyebrows will look best in their natural brow shapes and with your brows on. You can shape them nicely but not completely shave them off.

If you do not like their shape, you can shape them to the shape you want or even use a good eyebrow stencil with the shape you want. In case of any gaps, or you have sparse eye brows you can fill them using eyebrow pencil. Learn to work with what you have.

Instead of shaving off their brow hairs, there are some people who often choose to shave lines in eyebrows. If you want to have them, electric hair clippers will be ideal.

  • If you opt for brow powder, go for one or two shades lighter than your brows natural color. An angular eyeliner brush will be ideal for people who will opt for powders.
  • You could also consider drawn or fake eyebrows too.
