Most women need a little shaping to the brows to frame the eyes nicely. And while some guy's brows look great as-is, many aren't happy with the hair between the brows or how 'bushy' they are.
Even though men's and women's eyebrows are the same, we don't want to use identical rules when cleaning them up. If we did a man's arch or degree of definition would look extremely feminine. And what we would recommend for a man, wouldn't be create a high enough arch for a woman.
Here we have a list of expert tips, how-tos, videos and pictures on grooming eyebrows for men and women. (Read article).

I can get my hands on many professional beauty products at cost being a licensed Cosmetologist. Honestly, I don't have a huge arsenal of big name salon and spa products at home. When possible I try to use natural ingredients for my skin, hair and nails. Not only does it make me feel better not using chemicals, it saves money because you can usually use an item for more than one purpose.
Take coconut oil for example. Many cultures have used it not only for health benefits but to beautify. It's a wonderful moisturizer and I've applied it after shaving and then rinsed it off. Jen Adkins, our Expert on Skin Care shares 10 uses for coconut oil, including shaving with it solo. It's in many natural shaving creams because it's so hydrating and also provides a natural lather, but I haven't given it a shot all alone yet.
Waxing can be wonderful as it can make hair disappear for weeks because it pulls hair out of the root. However, hair needs to be around ¼" for it to be grasped and removed. For someone who has dark or thick hair, especially on the face, growing it out can seem like an eternity. It's why many women end up shaving their face- even though I advise against it unless you're undergoing laser or electrolysis.
You can bleach the hair in-between waxing. It will still be there, but will be less noticeable and make the wait easier to bear.
Even after immediately shaving thick dark hair on legs and underarms, a shadow is often left under the skin. What was shaved early in the morning can look close to a 5 o'clock shadow by dinner.
If sleeveless shirts or bare legs are part of your evening plans, then think ahead. If you use both a quality, still sharp razor (especially a man's) and a good shaving cream you'll get a bit closer shave that may nix the 5 o'clock shadow look. (See: How to shave your legs).
If the morning was a whirlwind with a quick lackluster shave and you need something fast, then you can do a simple touch up at home. I'm not talking about using a dry manual razor as it's bad for your skin anyway, but especially since you just shaved in the morning. Electric razors may help a bit, but they often don't get as close as a manual razor.
Instead prop your leg up on the tub or go at your underarms at the sink using a moisturizing shaving cream that doesn't need water for the skin but only to rinse the razor like EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream or EZ Waterless Shave.
