Default Eyebrow trimming?

Do you have trimmed eyebrows? I've been getting some flak lately for letting mine grow up, and in recent meetings I've noticed a strong trend towards trimming.

I have some that get crazy long, so I trim those down every now and then.

mine would be crazy wild, so when I trim my beard I run the trimmer over my eyebrows too.

The barber used to do it when I got a haircut

I've never trimmed. I have been known to pluck a few extra long ones though.

No. I have them ripped out by the follicles instead because the world isnít comfortable with the Frida Kahlo vibe I would otherwise be bringing to the table.

bushy is in (not necessarily uni-brow though)

I'm getting pretty Andy-Rooney-ish lately, so I trim them back to what I think are my "original" brows.

I've tried pulling all the white ones but there are unsightly bald spots afterward.

I don't have thick eyebrows, occasionally I get a few that grow out of control. Sometimes I'll trim them, sometimes my barber does, and occasionally they go unchecked for a bit and stick out. Mine are pretty blonde so it's not terribly noticeable... I think. Maybe others are silently judging me.

I think this is somewhat age related. As a young man I never trimmed my eyebrows. Now some will get super long so they need an occasional trim.

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.
