Nose hair and ear hair are a similar deal. Never needed to trim them as a young man, but now they get at least weekly weed whacking.

i let the eyebrows go until weaselette corners me with her little scissors and trims them

i usually take care of the ear fluff when i cut my hair every month or so.

I used to have a very dark and full brow. I felt they were getting thinner as I aged.

I said something at my last haircut and the barber said I was over trimming. She suggested I use a toothbrush to keep them neat and trim less.

So my last haircut was around 6 weeks ago (COVID delayed) and I haven't used a trimmer on them since. Brushing them helps keep them controlled and they don't look that gray.

Anybody other than Anitha get threaded? Any advice? I've been looking to try this - my eyebrows are fine, but I've got some strays that I'd love to have removed and get the whole things shaped a bit better. No idea how painful, expensive, or difficult this is. Or why it would be considered better than waxing the same areas. Thoughts?

If it's only a few strays, plucking with tweezers might be an easier solution. But I don't really know for sure, I've never done threading.

Female, Nearing my late 40's, starting to see more of those really long white ones. Have plucked a few, but leaving them for awhile. Have also had a few longer "mustache" hairs. Ah, aging. Luckily, I'm the oldest of 3 siblings but have the least gray hairs, so can't complain much.

Can't help ya. My eyebrows have always been kinda thin, but well-behaved. I, too, would think that tweezers would be an easy fix for a handful of awkward stray eyebrow hairs, though.
