A unibrow is perhaps the only thing that no one can pull off (apart from Frida Kahlo, maybe). Especially when it comes to men, our faces usually tend to be hairy anyway, thanks to the beard and moustache - which is dope btw, but a unibrow is where we should draw the line. Hey, don't @ us because we are not saying this, but women are.
We were curious about what women think about this oft-ignored facet of men's grooming, and wanted to hear it from them. So we went ahead and asked 10 women about their opinion on men having unibrows. Read on:
1. "Kajol couldn't pull it off, neither can you. Please get rid of it! It's just small patch of hair that can be easily removed. Chop chop! I mean, thread thread!" - Ankita, 27, Works in marketing
2. "Umm, nope. Unibrows are ugly. I'm all about body-positivism and 'embracing your true self' and everything that comes with it, but I can't help but be a little hypocritical when it comes to this bit. It just makes a good looking man look weird and creepy. So no, thanks." - Muriel, 25, Works in advertising
3. "We women have to go to the parlour at least twice a month to make sure our brows are on point at all times, even when we don't have a unibrow. Don't you think men should at least try? Not to woo women, just for themselves. That will help with the former too, because let's face it - unibrows are a turn-off." Nandita, 26, Works in HR
4. "Does anyone like unibrows? I bet no one does. It's a very obvious question, really, I think. It's just like having a bald patch - everyone wants to hide it - unless you're Vin Diesel and can pull it off. Okay that wasn't the best analogy because he's completely bald. I'll just be blunt and say it - unibrows are an eyesore." Priyanka, 29, Entrepreneur
5. "I think it's absolutely fine to have unibrows because it's not a choice. Not doing anything about it, is what I'm not ok with. But if you just don't care, it's fine! Just like during my 20's I was a total tomboy, was going through a rebellious phase and absolutely didn't give two hoots about superficial things like my looks. But that was my choice. I chose that for myself and was happy with how I was - actually I didn't even care. If a man is that carefree and doesn't attach importance to that, it's absolutely his choice and I'm no one to comment on it. But aesthetically speaking, I think a unibrow doesn't suit anyone." - Divya, 31, Writer
6. "Let's break it down - it's hair. It's a patch of hair. The thing is, it's just at the wrong place. You get your beard shaved, right? Even your hair cut? Why do you do that? Because there was hair at places you didn't approve of, essentially, right? So what's the big deal with this one here? You won't magically lose 5 points from your masc scale if you get that part threaded. Actually if that's the reason you're hesitating to get it done, I'm afraid you don't have enough points to start with, if you know what I mean. Don't hate me. It's true." - Rukhsaar, 27, Works in advertising
7. "I like my men hairy. There, I said it. I actually prefer men who don't get their chest or torso waxed, and I think it's hot. But unibrow is not something I can get on board with. It's hair, yes, but it doesn't really count as body hair - you know what I mean? It just sits on your forehead making you look shabby, and often creepy." - Sunita, 28, Software engineer
8. "I like symmetry. I think symmetry is the underlying factor behind everything that is beautiful. A unibrow kills the symmetry on a man's face. The gap on his forehead acts as a divider, which makes the face look symmetrical, and hence attractive. If that divider is not there, everything kind of looks haywire, and even a very good-looking man can look untidy - all for a little bit of hair. I think men should always get rid of their unibrow." - Ipshita, 32, Copy Editor
9. "All anyone needs is a salon appointment or a pair of tweezers. Why do they exist, again?" - Juhi, 30, Analyst
10. "I think if a man wants to sport a unibrow, that's okay. I don't, and won't find that attractive is a whole other story altogether. I mean, it just looks bad. Please go to a salon and tell your barber to get it fixed. The thread will probably sting a little, but it's totally worth it, trust me." - Shubhra, 24, Student
Ouch. Those are some strong opinions. But they mean well and they do know what they are talking about, so homies, please get rid of your unibrow if you have one. "You will become unrecognisable" - we were told.
