Default I now know why Arabs have monobrows...

Just been for a haircut.

Very nice indeed. But then he goes to put the razor on my eyebrows..

'WTF are you doing' I ask politely..

'Your eyebrows are long sir, need cutting' he replies..

'You can't cut and shave eyebrows, otherwise they will grow back like Nigel Lawsons' I exclaim.

He just shrugged his shoulders and looked at me (with monobrow of course..)

Really? I never do that! And I have a couple of eyebrows and by that I mean separate eyebrows. I think the people who actually do it are the ones who have monobrows by nature and they want to get rid of it.

You're probably youngish...

...most barbers will trim the faster (longer) growing hairs in your eyebrows for you...though tends to be an option mainly for older men (40+)...otherwise you end up looking like Dennis Healey or John Howard...not a good look.

Greek men hate having monobrows so they have their inter-brow area plucked or shaved...mainly so they don't look like their sisters !

Tis true. waxing slows down the rate of re growth and the hair becomes finer and not stubbly like it is with shaving

Maybe i'll start waxing my face then. I hate shaving.
Almost as much as I hate having to go for a pee....it's such an incovenience.
