Why are your eyebrows so uneven?

Have you ever wondered why it’s so hard to get both your eyebrows to look the same?

Both eyebrows are on the same face so why do each of them look so different?

Here is the news, faces are not symmetrical.

Take for example your bone structure may stick out a little more on one side of your forehead which means one eyebrow may be rounder and the other eyebrow will sit flatter and appear squarer.

The bone structure near the temples, can also protrude a little more on one side.

This is why when you look at your eyebrows front on, it may appear that the tail of one eyebrow is too short.  It’s not short. It is simply that you cannot see the whole eyebrow, from a front view, because the temple bone sticks out a little more.

The muscle tone in your face can change your eyebrow shape as well. The muscle tone is stronger on one side which means one of your eyebrows will sit higher than the other. By the way, this is usually everyone’s favourite eyebrow.

If you sleep on one side of your face, this can affect the eyebrows as well.

Sleeping on one side, means some of the eyebrow hairs can be rubbed off or wrinkles can appear in and around the shape of your eyebrows which will affect the way the eyebrow sits.

To add to your eyebrow symmetry troubles, the way the hair grows on each eyebrow can be different as well.

One eyebrow can have hair that grows straight up towards your hair line and the other can have hair that sits straight along the brow bone or points down towards your eyes.

So, the question still remains, “Can I achieve eyebrow symmetry?”

There are many tricks to create the illusion of perfectly shaped, symmetrical brows. Contact your local beauty salon who can trim, wax, tint and tweeze their way around uneven facial features to give your eyebrows great arch and symmetry.
