Frida Kahlo was a renowned Mexican painter who is famous not only for her painting style but also for the unibrow that she proudly displayed in her self-portraits. While art historians who see her work view the unibrow as an honest, brave representation of the female experience in 20th century Mexico, women with unibrows are today far less revered. Modern women view connected eyebrows as a source of unattractiveness and low self-esteem. Fortunately a number of hair removal products exist that can be used to complete a unibrow removal. These methods vary in cost, convenience, and long-term results, so consider three diverse methods: shaving with a razor, waxing, and electrolysis.
Most women already own a razor and know how to use it, so using a razor is the most convenient unibrow removal method. Although it is the easiest method, it also delivers the shortest lasting results. Unlike other hair removal methods, shaving does not remove hair follicles at their roots. This means that hair is able to grow back after just a few days, with hair growing back within hours in more extreme cases. Women who do not have a problem with shaving 2-3 times per week may opt for this unibrow removal method, but others prefer a more long-lasting solution.
Like with shaving, wax-based hair removal products are inexpensive, easy-to-use, and convenient since they can be used alone in the privacy of one’s own home. One can purchase ready-made wax strips, which are cloth or paper strips coated with wax, or one can buy a jar of wax and complete the unibrow removal by applying warm wax and waiting for it to dry. When purchasing wax strips, the individual must be sure that these strips are the right size so that they will not pull off too much eyebrow hair. Women begin by placing the wax or waxing strips onto the space between the eyebrows, then pressing down on the wax so that it sticks to unibrow hairs. The individual then removes the strip in one rapid motion, completing unibrow removal at the roots so that it takes weeks to grow back.
This is the most permanent unibrow removal method, but also the least convenient and most expensive. In order to undergo electrolysis, one must visit a trained professional who completes this process by sliding a needle down to the hair follicle. Electricity is shot through the needle, killing the cells that control growth and causing the hair follicle to fall out. Since this method attacks hair at the growth source, it does not grow back. However, one will need to schedule multiple sessions to achieve truly permanent results, with each session costing between $50 and $100. This method is also more painful than the two methods mentioned above.
Hair removal products such as wax and waxing strips offer a nice balance as they keep hair away for longer than if the hair is removed by shaving. These products are also less expensive than electrolysis sessions completed by a trained professional.
