They help us see the world.

The biological purpose of the brows is a barrier for our eyes. The brows are responsible for keeping moisture and sweat out of the eye area, so they won’t become irritated or damaged. The shape of your brow isn’t just for show, it actually helps divert liquid, such as sweat, to the sides of the face instead of directly down into the eyes.

All About Threading

More than the eye can see.

While this isn’t your main focus of the day, your eyebrows contain a lot more hairs that you were aware of. There are over 200 hairs in each eyebrow. For people that don’t maintain this area of the face, they can become furry caterpillars above their eyes because the hair count is about 1,000.

Brows don’t last forever.

Well, no, they aren’t going to fall out when you turn 60, but they do have a lifespan and life cycle. Your eyebrows have a lifespan of about 4 months. This is based on how long it takes for each individual hair follicle to fall out and then grow back in. You will never notice this change as you have too many hairs on your eyebrows at any given time, except when you are getting them threaded of course.

Best tool for facial recognition.

Have you ever looked a photo that has been edited to make someone appear without eyebrows? Is it kind of ridiculous right? Well not only is it silly, it actually is a way we recognize others. Studies have been done where individuals were given photos of people without eyebrows, and they were hard to distinguish. Eyebrows are more important to our look than we think they are.

Eyebrows tell all.

Your eyebrows are a key source on how people know what is going on inside your head. Brows are able to express your emotions when you are aware and vice versa. When you are surprised or scared, your eyebrows will react without you knowing and they will be symmetrical when they do move. Eyebrows can also react to the sound of your own voice. The pitch may cause your eyebrows to rise.
