I get them waxed fairly infrequently. I actually LIKE the feeling of having those babies waxed, but I am leery about who I allow to wax them. Depending on who it is, I can walk out of a salon looking any number of ways. I prefer a nice, natural arch, some thickness left behind, but just cleaned up around the edges (if allowed to grow freely, I would probably have curtains of eyebrows over my whole eye socket which would have to be parted so I could see through them). However, I’ve come out of an eyebrow waxing looking like a number of the below described eyebrow types and I have had to be very careful about who does them after that. I'd rather go shaggy than end up like something below.
I often just keep them pretty natural and I trim them. Yes, trim with scissors whenever they get shaggy. They can be out of control a lot, especially in the morning when I’ve slept on them and they are pointing upwards like Spock. I am however, committed to keeping them natural looking, and you know, if you follow this blog, how much I rail on bad eyebrows. They are a scourge.
So I’ve created this guide to help you identify the bad eyebrow, and to, one set of brows at a time, change the world for the better, and to eliminate the horror that is bad eyebrows.

This eyebrow is a much-offended crime in the Hungarican circle. Mostly because we are all born with thick brows, and somehow we are baffled as to what to do with them. The solution for some is to hack off the tapered corner, and wax too far outwards from the center of the brow, and to end up looking like a moron.
Some Einstein out there came up with the idea that women could just colour on their eyebrows from a template just like Kindergarteners do with tracing templates and crayons. This usually generates an eyebrow that is hugely thick, densely coloured and too heavy for a woman's face. But hey... at least they're even, right? Women who wear these type of eyebrows often inadvertently frighten small children and make them cry.
