Amidst all this talk of brows, there's been one glaring exception: Men. And we just launched a product called Boy Brow today...a “Best Boy Brows' montage is clearly in order.
But first, a thought experiment: Try to imagine Jack Nicholson without his eyebrows. One wonders if, without them, he'd be able to charm both Amanda Peet and Diane Keaton 28 years later in Something’s Gotta Give (much less win an Oscar for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest). Maybe they could be groomed a little tidier...or not—it's part of the charm that way.
Many a voice on this very site has claimed the early aughts as a hard time for brows—but maybe that was just for women. Look at The O.C.'s stately Peter Gallagher; the wholesome Josh Hartnett; the maddeningly badass Jared Leto and Colin Farrell; and not-quite-a-dad-yet Jon Stewart. Great brows, all. Keeping the momentum going into the current decade, we've got Drake's current mood (brooding), Zachary Quinto AND Chris Pine (the new Star Trek franchise has good brows on lock), and Javier Bardem (married to Penélope Cruz...nuff said).
Of course, then there's wunderkind NBA player Anthony Davis, equally known for his freakish athleticism as his statement unibrow. This singular feature makes him look original...and no doubt, the type of attractive that comes with raging confidence. Next up: teaching him how to raise that bad boy à la Nicholson.
