I know the hair on your body must not grow all at the same rate, even to wherever it stops, otherwise my facial hair would be about 3" by now, assuming no trims.

Anyway, I was shaving for the first time in a couple months when I, in the sort of genius that only comes when you're really tired and haven't had a good night's sleep, decided to see what I looked like without eyebrows. Or, eyebrow, I guess, I only took one off. As you may be able to guess, the answer is: not very good. Or, perhaps, more accurately: ridiculous.

I miss it already. It seems it did a pretty important job protecting my eyes from glare, as my reading lamp is kind of glaring in my right eye right now.

I've been tempted.  But I've yet to shave a brow.

Would probably be fun for about 5 minutes though.

Real proud.

I don't think hair stops growing, so much as it grows and falls out at a certain rate.

Eyebrow hair probably grows about 1/2 inch then falls out.  Probably take a couple weeks to grow back to something approaching normal.  I know a guy who blew his eyebrows off testing a potato gun.  "Where's that spark?" WHOOOMPPFFF!!!

It depends on how old you are.  My eyebrows have taken off and started a competition with my nose hairs to see which one will get longer.  I would say that some of them would grow an inch a week if I would let them.

I dunno man, I seem to have two completely different sets of follicles in the eyebrows, the hairs right in the middle of each brow  grow really fast and the rest grow really slow.

I think you'll be looking goofy for a month or so at least.

I think you should pass this idea along to John Lott.

Go get a sharpee.  You can fix any eyebrow shaving accident with a sharpee.

I cannot believe no one has posted pics of Sniper_Wolfe and I after the infamous membership contest......

WTF were you thinking?

You seriously need to get out of your dorm room more often and make some friends... they would have kept you from doing something like this.....

So I take it you shaved the other one off to match...


I forget how long it took mine to grow back, but it seemed like years... especially being in high school....

Its gonna be a long long time.

Thats for sure.

Maybe pluck yer nose hairs and glue em on to eyebrow or use an eyebrow pencil.
Either way it is going to be a few months at least.

If you wait a few days, you'll get a deep discount on fake eyebrows at a halloween shop.

"Hmm... what would I look like without eyebrows?"

My friends? No, I think they would have encouraged me, and if I was hesitant, offered something that might take away what impulse control I have.

Dude, I would say my friends did it when I passed out at a party(seen it) before I admitted doing it myself. Good luck

Probably true of my friends too, now that you mention it.
