    What does the Shape of Eyebrows tell?

    Hi Skadites,

    I wonder if I´m the only one who observes the different eyebrows of people around me and compares them with each other? One could say that "checking" the eyebrows of people has become a kind of freaky habit of me in the recent years. Until around two years ago I was completely "ignorant" about that topic but ever since I saw a compilation of different shapes of eyebrows I keep an eye on that matter.

    Well, I have to say that Germanic eyebrows come in all shape and forms. Some are thin, some are thick, sometimes they are wavy, others are straight or sickle-shaped. Some people have their eyebrows near at the nose bridge, others more sidewards. And even the place on the forehead can differ: Low or high eyebrows, everything seems possible.



    Some examples:

    Thick eyebrows





    Thin eyebrows





    I prefer normal eyebrows over plucked ones, latter look unnatural and often "cheap". I don´t even want to mention the lunatics who shave their eyebrows like Whoopi Goldberg(sic!)...

    What´s your opinion?

    I do not like very thin eyebrows- to me these look 'hard' or 'cheap' but plucking any stray hairs beneath the arch is beneficial, especially with darker eyebrows, as it frames and the face and accentuates its natural beauty

    As for your diagram, I suppose mine are most like 6

    That´s actually a good idea! So people, please look at the diagram and post the number of the eyebrows who resemble your own brows the most.

    I think mine are between 6 and 7 but a little bit thicker than shown on the examples. The shape fits.

    None of those shapes are normal.. they all look plucked and groomed.. this is a set of real natural Germanic eyebrows:



    Most natural eyebrows have the high point 3/4 of the way out from the middle, like this. It's how mine are, at least.

    Here's a Germanic woman with a relatively natural shape retained:

    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    Mine are kind of like 7 but not as severe. I've never bothered plucking them or anything. To be honest, I've never really paid any attention to them. I did have a friend in high school that plucked hers to death and had to draw them on. I think that scared me away

    Only Theo Waigel (former Finance minister) has pure Germanic eyebrows...



    But I think my examples of "thick eyebrows" were natural ones and unplucked or unshaped. An other example:

    Looks perfectly normal with natural hair color...






    ...while it looks a little bit stupid when the hair are dyed and the eyebrows remain normal:
