my brows are very thin, always have been. I used brow powder to fill them in, and pluck strays. They just aren't thick enough to warrant paying to groom them.

And I'm sure most people notice, even if they don't think they do. See Susan Boyle, before and after: Susan Boyle Makeover The Image Architect | The Image Architect
I just thought ladies just had perfect looking eyebrows

I tweeze mine, but there are only a few unruly ones. I'm at an age where I'm starting to get some white ones and some thinning. I use MAC Painteur primer in a slightly shimmery skin tone under and into the brow hairs, then use the Milani felt-tip eyebrow lining pens in both the dark and light shades to define the shape and cover over the white hairs --the MAC helps it stay set. Works a lot better for me than pencils or powders. Best part is, no sharpening those awful pencils that never do right anyway.

I pluck the stray hairs when I see them, which is every week or so.

I rock a uni. If it was good enough for Frida, it's good enough for me!

(Okay, it's not quite so bushy, but I don't wax/pluck/any of it, and I do have some nice fuzz in-between. Just can't be bothered.)

I love threading. It definitely hurts, but they look so much better!

Nope, I didn't say that at all. But any woman who thinks she's attracting men with her eyebrows needs a better reason to do it.

I have mine very lightly tattooed on. No, I don't have chola brows and I've yet to have a person notice they're permanent. I've actually had quite a few people make appointments with my permanent makeup lady because mine look pretty great

I pluck and occasionally wax, but having the tattoo has made it VERY difficult for a salon worker to screw them up. Just get rid of everything outside of the tattoo. Simple.

Since they are very light, I usually darken them a bit with a pencil/powder.

I am leaning heavily toward having this done. I hate it when I wind up with thin brows.

Not sure what's worse.

A woman who has plucked her eye brows until they never grow back or a unibrow.
