idk, it gives them something to do when they're bored?

The woman in the pic got overzealous and shaved half of her hair off too.

I've watched this. Over plucking. It started in the 90's. The fashion was pencil thin eyebrows. My eyebrows are already a light colour, so I just didn't pick up this habit. But all of the actresses and model's had slivers for eyebrows. Now, if you keep ripping hair out, eventually, it stops growing back. So they've over plucked until the hair follicles have been damaged. But now the fashion isn't tiny, pencil thin lines. But a lot of women can't grow back their eyebrows so easily now and it's an old habit.

OCD. Could be a red flag for dating.

I think that is hideous looking.

I never understood the concept of an eyebrow pencil either. I do get my eyebrows waxed, but I just get the strays and edges cleaned up and evened out and that's it. I like mine to look natural. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

This is me too. It always seemed weird to me to pluck eyebrows out and draw them back in. Why not just leave what's there to begin with. I liken it to a man shaving and then taking a pencil and putting dots all over his face to draw in stubble or something, lol.

I also have blonde eyebrows since I am a natural blonde, so I don't really have to do much. Which reminds me, I am overdue for an eyebrow wax. That's one thing I won't do myself because I am so afraid I will get them uneven and look ridiculous.

I know friend's who have done this. The point wasn't to pluck them out of existence. That's just the final result of getting nitpicky.

I've seen people pluck or shave most of it off and draw it back on them back on in a way that's more elegant and more polished than they would have been even if they were groomed. Some brows just don't behave naturally either the shape is kind of funny or the hair just doesn't grow in the direction you want. I don't do that cause 1. I'm lazy and 2. I don't like to look too far from my makeup face when it's really off.
