How groomed is everyone's eyebrows on this forum? I was reading this news story tonight about the Hannah Montana ticket scandal and this picture of Priscilla Ceballos really scared my boyfriend! How could she go on national tv looking like that? Her eyebrows look so artificial.

Mom sorry for 'Hannah Montana'™ essay hoax - TODAY: People - MSNBC.com

I leave my eyebrows just natural looking and pluck the stray brow hairs.

I know a girl whose eyebrows look like that. They're drawn on. I think she has some kind of problem though because she has no eyelashes either, so it's possible she either pulls them out or simply does not have hair there.

Personally, my eyebrows are my biggest struggle. :P When I was younger, my eyebrows were THICK. I really don't even know how to describe it. When you google image search "thick eyebrows", I swear the thickest one there on a female is less than half the size of what mine are naturally. When I was young and self conscious, I tweezed them down myself getting completely rid of the natural shape. To this day, I still have to tweeze every day to look reasonably presentable because I have hairs poking up a half an inch below my eyebrow!

My brother looks like he has two blond catepillers camped out on his forehead, but it suits him and it works for a male. Not so much with my black tarantulas!

I have to work mine everyday, because they are black, and I have very fair skin. I am fortunate because I have a beautiful arch once they are pruned, they are classically arched ala Liz Taylor and Hepburn, but they do take work.... do you all follow the eyebrow rules? AKA, no overtweezing, NO WAXING, and the three pencil point of brow shaping? I am also German, so have quite a bit of excess hair!

LOL, I am a control freak, and have had my brows WRECKED by waxing by others, no precision, guess its a German thing?
I tweeze every day, and once you get the suckers under control, it takes just a minute, but ya gotta stay on patrol!

I'm German and I get my eyebrows waxed. I've never had a bad wax job, but then, I am very choosy about who touches any part of my body! I firmly believe you get what you pay for, so if you look for bargains on beauty services, you usually get a bargain service.

Sometimes I get my eyebrows waxed but most of the time I tweeze myself about once a week.
I use a brow powder on mine because they are so light.
