Boys' Facial Hair
My 13 year old son has some hair between his eyebrows (not quite a
uni-brow). His complexion is brown. He probably could care less at
this time, but I'm still wondering if we should consider some method
of hair removal. Anyone ever done this? Does the hair grow back?
I don't understand why you would need to remove your son's hair.
It's his face; if it doesn't bother him, why bring it up and make
him self-conscious about it? There's nothing wrong with having
some hair between the eyebrows.
leave the kid alone
I am an esthetician and have seen quite a few teen boys with
uni-brows. I wax between the brows and it is quick and relatively
painless. All the boys have been happy with the look. It really
opens up their eyes. Also, the hair grows back much finer,
thinner and eventually there is less and less. Feel free to
contact me with any questions. 925.283.7546 Skinsense 925 Village
If your son is not bothered by the hair between his eyebrows, why
make him self conscious about it? I wouldn't mention it at all,
until he mentions it to you as a problem.
My son did get teased for the hair between his eyebrows, some kids
called him ''unibrow''. I hardly responded as I didn't want to
make a big deal of it, but mentioned that sometimes I pluck my
eyebrows. He started to pluck a few hairs for awhile, and
eventually the teasing stopped and he's back to letting the hairs
naturally grow in.
We are all too ''looks'' focused.
