    I can never get them to match. One is always better than the other. I'm beginning to give up and just accept they're unequal.

    It's the Indian (I think) method of plucking eyebrows ... they do something or other with a thread which tears all the hairs out in one go. Better than fiddling about with tweezers :P

    and is really painful.. i had it done once and the woman left little scars all over my eyebrows.. i stick to plucking asnd yes one of mine always looks worse than the other. Threading isn't also guaranteed to give you matching eyebrows.. i know my sister's didnt!!!

    I'd recommend having them done professionally. If you can't afford, or just don't to spend money on, having them done professionally all the time, you could just do it once in order to get them even and nicely shaped and thereafter just pluck the stray hairs yourself.

    And remember everyone, don't overpluck!

    whose eyebrows are ever even? i'm forever striving to get them perfectly matched, til i end up with about one hair on each... it never works. my tip is just pluck the strays and use an eyebrow pencil to give an even line

    Actually it's interesting that so many people are complaining about uneven eyebrows- I always thought that so many people had perfectly symmetrical brows (I was jealous you see)... Guess that proves that we notice the unevenness of our own brows and other people generally don't. Makes me feel a little better!

    They're already amazingly shaped so I don't need to go to a salon, I just have trouble getting them to match.

    I think I'll create an emo fringe over the dodgy eyebrow...

    I have the same problem, I can't ever get them the same, I swear one is actually higher set on the brow bone than the other, but its probably all the mucking about I've done to it. :O[

    Tbh I think guys should pluck in the middle if they have a monobrow... I can't stand a mono! But other than that I think they should leave them be. Obvious styling on guy's eyebrows mostly just looks ridiculous!

    that is why you only get rid of the 'straglers' and don't touch the actual shape of your eyebrow..

    i had mine threaded and never again. she took hair from above the eyebrow which you are never supposed to do, but it looks awful when you let it regrow. ive only just managed to semi sort out the mess threading caused my eyebrows. the more you take from above, the more it encourages growth and apparently it starts heading towards the hairline and you get massive eyebrows.

    but id recommend getting waxed to get a shape and then just pluck.
