Some people use tweezers or waxing to shape their eyebrows. Threading eyebrows has also become a popular method, because it does not pull at the skin. All of these methods can be painful for some seconds or minutes due to the sensitivity of the area around the eye, but, often, this pain decreases over time as the individual becomes used to the sensation. In the era of the metrosexual it has become more common for men to pluck their eyebrows to appear more youthful and attractive.
There are some who completely wax or shave off their entire eyebrows, then, either leave them bare, or draw them in with eye liner. Entirely shaved eyebrows will grow back in approximately 1 week.
