    Default The Unibrows of Tajikistan... How far would you go?

    No need to pluck anymore:












    Unibrows are the fashion in Tajikistan:

    Usma, a leafy green herb, is sold in all Tajik markets. You can get a small bunch for about $0.06. The process is simple but effective, several market women assured me. Take a bunch of usma and let it dry in the sun for a couple hours. Then grind up the leaves until a dark green goo seeps out. Dip a branch of usma-- or a matchstick, if you want to be more precise -- into the goo and smear it on your eyebrows, making sure, of course, to color the space in between. Leave on for 15 minutes, and repeat the smearing process one or two more times. The result is a deep black unibrow, rich and expressive.

    So, would you do it?

    Like this:


    Serious question.

    I sometimes like to draw the brows in a bit towards the centre, but often down, rather than together.

    The other way:




    Do not forget to answer the poll.



    This is a reverse.

    Rather "how much would you unibrow", than "how much would you pluck your eyebrows?"

    All my efforts to sport an 'unibrow' are worthless! There are no eyebrow hair growing on my nose bridge! I'll be never lucky again.

    That is fine, you just need a grey/blonde eyebrow powder and you could draw them in a little.

    Otherwise, you could apply the Usma paste and go all the way to unibrow heaven...

    You need to be more open-minded, like Princess Stephanie of Monaco:



    or Lourdes Ciccone



    This style, known as the 'Scouse brow' is has become popular in parts of the UK:

    Before and after:







    They are getting closer and closer together...

    I must say that the unibrow Tajiks looks better than the Liza Minelli`s distanced brows fashion with 10cm gap.

    Both looks horrible tough.

    I suppose an advantage might be that it would 'tickle' everytime you hugged someone with a Unibrow!
