Mouse skin was once used to make fashionable eyebrows

Eyebrows give you away
The human face differs from the rest of the body as it has a set of unique muscles used for facial expressions. Microexpressions (split second tics) are gestures that reflect our intentions to those who can read them. You can try as hard as you want to conceal the truth but your eyebrows have a high chance of giving it away.
The myth of unibrows
Joined eyebrows or unibrows were earlier thought of as a mark of a criminal. That's only a myth. If anything, unibrows give you an intense and intellectual look.
Grooming your eyebrows
1) Shaping and grooming your eyebrows wouldn't hurt your manhood. In fact, a pair of well groomed eyebrows will make you look more attractive and clean. The decision of how you want to manscape your eyebrows should be taken with some consideration as it’ll be a decision you have to live with, untill the time it grows out again.
2) You don’t have to remove a lot of hair or even shape them into arches and curves like the ladies. A simple clean up by removing excess, spread out hair is fine. Trimming with a good pair of tweezers to shape them in an even line will do.
3) Don't do anything overly dramatic such as using Botox that will freeze your eyebrows into place and take away from your expressions that make you who you are.
