Is it weird to talk about shaving my kid’s unibrows? Am I committing some sort of faux pas that will be in the news like the mom in the UK who gave her 8 year old Botox? I don’t think so mostly because my mom friends have asked me for years how to get rid of their kid’s (2, 3, 4 year olds and older) unibrows. This is such first world shit right here. It’s a problem that really isn’t a problem BUT I know you see those pics on Facebook of your friend’s kids who look like they could stand in for Bert on Sesame Street. You have quiet judgement, just admit it.
IF you’re so inclined to trim up your own child’s bushy brow, please don’t use a razor or anything sharp. They will wiggle and you will cut them. What I use is this Finishing Touch razor that I got as a stocking stuffer about 15 years ago. It’s a tiny electric razor that isn’t a blade so you can’t cut the skin and just one swipe should do the trick. It’s quick and safe. You can of course use it on yourself too but just know that it doesn’t get super close to the skin so you won’t have that smoothness like after waxing or threading. It’s good for lazy touch ups.
Here’s the before and after of my daughter.
Shut up! No way would I show that. Why? So she can grow up and hate me for making her seem like a crazed hairy beast? She’s not. Neither of them are. But they do have my Italian brow and I have empathy for that journey, so I’ll spare them that small judgement from strangers and zap a tiny patch of hair over their noses about twice a year. No biggie. Moving on…
