News reaches me today that men now make up 40% of visitors to Debenhams ‘Brow Bars’ (i.e places where you get your eyebrows professionally ‘shaped’). Seemingly, this is double the amount compared to a year ago. Clearly the release of Bruno has had more of an impact on the male psyche than anyone could have thought.
Now, you know me – I’m up for almost anything grooming wise but men with shaped eyebrows has always been a particular bete noir of mine. Frankly, I hate it.
Don’t get me wrong – I have nothing against a tidy brow. Nor do I disapprove of dealing with monobrows or those errant hairs that seem to pop up from nowhere. But I do have a problem with men who have their eyebrows plucked to infinity. For me, conscious shaping (and I’ve seen some real abominations recently) is just a step too far. According to the store, men are asking for a ‘Russell Brand’, ‘Robert Pattison’ or a ‘Danny Cipriani’ and are craving that well-groomed ‘arched’ look.
Which is fine if you want to look like you might do drag at the weekend but (and call me old fashioned if you want) I think it’s better to do as I do and just whiz over your brows with a hair or beard trimmer on a medium setting. Keeps eyebrows in check, removes those stray hairs and most importantly of all, ensures you still look vaguely like a fella at the end of it. What do you reckon?

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move.

Rubbing it on your face might not be the first thing you associate with cannabis, but cannabis skin care is gaining traction in the world of grooming. Rich in antioxidants and coming with a wealth of medical benefits, cannabis skin care may be the next big thing.
