All hail the mighty brow. Folks, I ask you: what’s not to love about these shaggy forehead caterpillars? Let’s rack them up: 

1. Sweat-B-Gone. Your shiny, slippery forehead is the perfect runway for sweat to launch straight into your eyes, stinging & blinding you as you go about shoveling the driveway. Good thing your perfectly shaped eyebrows are there, staunch & hairy defenders of the eyeball, whisking away sweat and keeping you seeing. 

2. Don’t look ridiculous. If you had no eyebrows, you’d sort of look like the victim of a frat hazing that went too far. 

3. Quiet talk. They say that 95% of all communication is non-verbal. You know, it’s less what you say, more how you say it. It’s your dress, your walk, your eyes, & the way you move your body. And if that’s true, what body prop comes in handier for this quiet talk than your ol’ eyebrows? Pop them up to show surprise, squint them tightly to show you ain’t happy, & maybe furrow one slightly to show you’re a bit confused. Eyebrows can help you say so much with so little. Although we may often forget it, our eyebrows are rocking the forehead from the day we’re born to the day we die. They soldier on in the sun, sleet, wind, & rain & need to look pretty doing it. They don’t take vacations & they don’t complain. So let’s give it up for our eyebrows, ladies & gentlemen. Let’s give it up for dry eyes. Let’s give it up for showing emotion. Let’s give it up for not looking ridiculous.

I used to have great eyebrows until my dermatologist did some work on my face.  My eyebrows faded & became almost invisible.  I now have to use eyebrow pencil but I try to keep them natural looking.

I told my friend she drew her eyebrows on too high.
She looked surprised!!

Some people make do with one eyebrow (& a mustache):

And some regular cartoons:

Why don't bald guys with bushy eyebrows just let them grow out & then comb them back?----fishducky
