Shaving your eyebrow makes you look weird – Abuja men to ladies


Some men in Abuja have expressed displeasure at the distortion and carving of women’s eyebrow, stating that it makes them look weird and unattractive.

They told NAN on Wednesday, during an interview that shaving the eyebrows makes women look less appealing and old, advising that the fashion trend be shunned.

Shaving, shaping, trimming and carving of the eyebrow is currently a trend in the fashion world and the various kinds include: feather, babwire and dragon.


One man, Denis Chijoke, who identified himself as a civil servant, said he finds the trend repulsive, especially when done by girls.

“I don’t know where these girls got this beauty tip from, and I wonder why they quickly embrace any trend, not minding if it fits them or not.

“Some of the shapes on their faces look very repulsive and make them to look older,” he said.

Similarly, another man, Idris Danjuma, said that carving of the eyebrows makes women look fake.

“The manner with which some of these ladies draw their brows makes them to look ridiculous, rather than beautiful,” he told NAN.

According to him, the trend was alien and women should abandon the trend, while they embrace fashion trends that are natural and Nigerian.

A male hairdresser, Isaac Daniel, explained that the fashion trend had become popular among women of different ages, social classes and religions.

“This trend has been embraced by most women to the extent that you rarely find ladies who do not carve their brows.

“It makes some women to look glamorous,” he said.

Views of a Makeup artist

A makeup artist, Esther Seriki, said that she had much patronage from ladies.

Seriki said that she also trained women in eyebrow carving.

“There are different types of brow carving, which I teach my students as well as do for customers. It depends on their occasions, facial structure and their specifications,’’ Seriki said.

According to her, she realises more than N100,000 monthly from the business, which she said had been able to support her post graduate education.

She advised unemployed persons to empower themselves with skills that would enable them to generate revenue.

A banker, Bola Ayomide, told NAN that trimming her brow gave her a better and cleaner look.

According to her, some eyebrows are bushy.

“I am used to trimming and carving my brows rather than leave them full and untidy; this enhances my looks,” Ayomide said.
