Alot of time in terms of shaping and fussing over the eyebrows.

Define a lot of time...

5 minutes? 10? more?

Agreed. What's a lot of time? I get mine professionally done every 3 weeks. It costs $10 and takes 10 minutes. Everyday, I spend maybe 30 seconds brushing them in place. My brush and gel cost $1 and lasts 6 months. Once a week, I pluck or trim any strays until I get them done again. This takes 5 minutes. The tweezers cost $5. The razor cost maybe $5. Both have lasted years.

I give exactly zero sh*ts about what anyone thinks of my routine. My husband doesn't care whether or not I do this, but knows that it makes me happy, it's not taking time away from the family, and it's not breaking the bank.

I have never had my eyebrows done so I would have no clue what the traditional amount of time for this is.

Eyebrows make the face apparently. I've never bothered with mine, never trimmed or plucked, because they were just fine the way they were. Now that I'm older they have thinned quite a bit and now I DO have to spend a little time filling them in. It makes a difference I think.

This.

Just ensure lack of unibrow and move on.

I think the manicured ones look odd.

Even for people spending "a lot" of time, it might take 10 minutes every 2-4 weeks, and 1 minute daily. How is that lots of time?

Be very very careful when messing with eye brows. My wife got overly fixated on plucking as a teenager----------now she is an older woman with NO eyebrows.......it looks horrible...leave them alone if you can - unless you have the unibrow going on...nothing sadder than an old lady with no eyebrows who has them penciled in like a clown.

I have eyebrows? Should I spend time on them?

I never notice anyone's eyebrows unless they are plucked into those weird thin arches, or extraordinarily hairy.
On the pain of death I couldn't tell you which of my (female, or male for that matter) friends does anything at all with their eyebrows. Not on my radar, I guess.
