Even if you’re a man who doesn’t intimately follow the whims of the beauty industry, you might still be aware that for the past few years, we’ve been experiencing something of an eyebrow renaissance, a brow moment, a browment, if you will. While this phenomenon is mostly centered around women’s beauty, you might have heard the rumor that men also have eyebrows.
A lot of guys don’t consider their brows, but maybe they should. After all, most men spend a good amount of time and money controlling the hair on the bottom half of their face. It’s at least worth sparing a thought for the facial hair on the top half. You don’t need to take yourself to a brow place every two weeks (unless you want to, of course) but you can at least get a simple pair of tweezers to tame any unruly hairs.
Just as there are quite a few different kinds of razors, there’s some variety in tweezers. The most common are the slant tip, which is a good all-purpose plucker, and pointed tweezers, which offer unparalleled precision but require a steady hand. We’ve plucked some of the best options, including slant and pointed tweezers.
These professional tweezers are sharper and more accurate than the drugstore variety, so they make take some time to get used to. That said, they’ll help grab those smaller hairs, and they can even help with ingrown hair. Don’t be surprised when the compliments roll in.
