    Question Can Nordics have Unibrows?

    Can you have unibrow/ thick eyebrows and still belong to the Nordic type ?
    Because I just 'discovered' a small "hairbridge" (connecting my eyebrows for a bit) , and I'm sure a unibrow isn't a Nordic trait.

    Unibrow, like earlobe type/tongue rolling/dimples, is not a race-specific trait. It is a dominant mutation. You probably do not have a true 'unibrow' just a small connection of hair between your eyebrows and it means pretty much nothing racially.

    The Beserks were described to have Unibrows, and hairy feature and sometimes dark features.
    i have some Germans with unibrows and Norsemen

    Well, that could probably be said of any gene or trait, taken on its own. I've noticed that an attached earlobe is very characteristic of Borrebies, actually.

    Concurrent eyebrows are typical of certain types as well (as are thick eyebrows). But such traits don't usually involve many genes, so they can easily occur with another phenotype, even though the genes might have been originally derived from one of those particular types.

    But it seems to be uncommon among the Nordic phenotype. With the Nordic CM types however , it seems to be somewhat more common.

    I am sub-nordic (nordoid not CM) and I have a connecting brow.

    I thought that unibrow was more common in the Atlantid population, but I would concede that CM types tend to have more unibrows than the nordoids, from what little I have observed.

    If you look at my avatar and follow my brow inwards towards my nose you can barely see them, but there is hair there.

    I would have thought that it would have more to with the shape of the brow bone, and general hirstuteness than any other factors.

    Is it true that if you pluck your unibrow frequently enough during beginning puberty , it could stop growing ?

    If you pluck a hair, the hairs around it are stimulated to grow thicker and more numerously to compensate. This begins a vicious circle of pluckage. The more you pluck, the more disordered your unibrow becomes. Shaving does not cause such problems.

    There is nothing wrong with a unibrow.

    Isn't it the opposite ? If you shave , the hairs grow more thicker and faster .
    If you pluck , it doesn't.

    Shaving causes the regrowth to be scratchy to the touch because the ends are sharp as they have been cut, but they do not grow faster or thicker. This is a myth.

    Plucked or waxed regrowth is soft like ordinary hair with a tapered tip.
