Keeping unruly hairs in check is no easy task – and that includes brows.
A pair of well-maintained eyebrows helps to frame the face and keep you looking sharp. If you suffer from unmanageable hair growth, you’ll want to know the best methods to tackle it.
Read on and discover what a unibrow actually is, what causes it and the best ways to keep a thick unibrow at bay.
What is a Unibrow?
A unibrow (or monobrow) refers to long eyebrows that connect in the middle.
Hair in the centre of the forehead creates the impression of a single, unified, stern-looking eyebrow and is known in the medical field as a ‘synophrys’.
What Causes a Unibrow?
If you’re curious what actually causes a unibrow, you’ll need to turn to your DNA.
Some studies have discovered genes that are associated with hair density, greying, curling, and unibrow growth. Unibrows were found in people (specifically, men) with the gene dubbed PAX3.
Scientists theorise that once a feature has been isolated to a specific gene, the cosmetics industry may one day come up with a product that can inhibit or alter its behaviour. In other words: if you’re unhappy with your unibrow, science may soon offer a solution!
