Hey gals, Do you prefer plucking your eyebrows or shaving? Me, i do plucking, that was i get used to. I dont like shaving as it will make my eyebrows grew thicker and it grew faster. What about you girls, do you pluck or shave?

I pluck my eyebrows. I have never shaved them because I was always told that they would grow back very thick. I have an Aunt that shaves her "mustache" on her upper lip and it grows back very black! lol

I don't pluck or shave my eyebrows. Try looking at my picture.. My eye brows are thick. I don't know why I don't do any of the two,.. I think I just don't want to see them become thin but I've tried having it shaved. That was when I had my junior prom. The next year where I had my senior prom I didn't have it shaved. I have not tried plucking them.

I never heard of shaving your eyebrows, but I guess you learn something new everyday. I have mine waxed. I pluck when I don't have time to get them waxed just to keep them from getting out of hand.

This is what I do with unwanted hair. I pluck my eyebrows, shave my armpits and trim the hairs down there. LOL.

Hi, Cheenlly I never pluck or shave my eye brows,maybe later after my marriage. My mom said "don't pluck or shave your eye brows before you get marriage". I will choose pluck then shave, i'm not good in shaving. Thank you

I pluck my eyebrows because I don't feel comfortable and safe using a razor or blade to shave it. I'm amazed how some can manage to shave their eyebrows with blade. It takes great control to do that and not be wounded. On the other hand, I shave my legs. I don't think plucking is an option when it comes to legs! :P

yep. it's scared to use shavers even if they are small on my eyebrows. i don't want myself getting hurt. and plucking them off, i feel much safer.

I always pluck my eyebrows. I've never shaved them and just don't have the urge too. I've had them waxed and it hurt like heck so I'll just stick to plucking.

I do not need to pluck my eyebrow as it is in a proper shape. Rather I consider my eyebrow as a little thin. If it becomes a slight think, it will look more good.

Definately plucking, I would never shave my eyebrows.Like you said it just makes them grow faster and come in thicker. If you can honestly beleive this i knew a girl once who shaved her back, Is that disgusting or what?

Same here Cheenlly, plucking it is. Sometimes my friends would even ask me to do their eyebrows 'cause well, I am a very good plucker. lolz. And yes, they grow faster when you shave them, ayt? =)

I pluck too. Sometimes I have used those little wax strips like you get at Walmart too or use those little battery operated eyebrow shapers.

Usually I will pluck my eyebrows because they grow fast and are quite thick. But I will use razor to shape the edges. Have to be careful though because sometimes I may not get the same results for both eyebrows, lol.

before, i hate the idea of plucking. just thinking about it makes me feel so much in pain already. but when i got used to it, i already know how to do it myself and i love plucking every single strand there is. it is cleaner and yep... you are right, hair grows back even slower. it's more practical for me.

I pluck my brows if I have time and I'm not in such a hurry but since I've been busy for the past few months and I don't have time to pluck them one by one, I shave it. But I make sure though that I pluck them before they grow long.

I prefer plucking, because just like you that's what I get used to do with my eyebrows. And I do the opposite with my armpit with the same reason hehe LOL. I hate plucking can't bear the discomfort it brings haha LOL. How about you?hehe

I either pluck or wax. I couldn't imagine shaving. I wouldn't think that could come out too good. Knowing me I would end up shaving my whole eyebrow off and end up having to draw them on lol.
