What's Your Best Brow Shape?

Take this quiz to see what your ideal eyebrow shape is -- and get at-home eyebrow shaping tips (naturally)

There are two types of people in this world: people who care about their eyebrows and people who just don't understand what the fuss is about. For a long time I was in the later camp; other than mowing down a massive uni-brow I didn't get why anyone would spend time plucking their eyebrows.

The day I made the switch: when my aunt dragged me to the salon, plopped me on the eyebrow waxer's table and let her go to town. When I sat up, disoriented from the semi-kidnapping and squinting from the eyebrow waxing pain, I looked in the mirror and -- I got it. The difference it made in my face was huge. I looked polished, like I spent time putting on makeup even though I hadn't (that was for semi-kidnapping round two). I made a firm switch to "the other side" and never looked back.

Whatever camp you're currently in, this eyebrow shapes quiz is a must-take. Because even if you're a devoted eyebrow plucker or waxer, you still might not know what your perfect shape is. The experts I talked to, Golee Khesti from Ona Spa in Los Angeles and brow specialist Kristie Streicher, say that people often over-pluck or miss the mark on their eyebrow arch.

So just take this quiz and answer a few questions about your current eyebrow situation and we'll hook you up with the eyebrow shape that will completely transform your face (in a good way, obviously). Plus, we'll share tips to get the shape at home -- although our experts do recommend heading to a brow specialist for your first eyebrow shaping experience. They are the professionals after all.

Arlene Bartels Jones Wood (Wed, 27 Apr 2011 13:27:02 -0700): Thank you your articile on eyebrows was helpful. My problem is when I was 35 I got the hicken pictures and I have scars under eyebrows. On right side I have a big bare spot and brows are hard to shape. It there any advice you can give me? I do use mascara to fill in and darken brows.
Beth Aponte Gomez (Sat, 25 Jun 2011 20:25:30 -0700): I had bald spots and sparse brows also and got them filled in with permanent make up. Worked like a charm!
Adele Barela (Tue, 09 Aug 2011 18:52:15 -0700): Thanks for the helpful Idvise. I tend to do a pretty good job when it comes to my eyebrows.
Elizabeth Erne (Sat, 12 Nov 2011 13:37:04 -0800): I don't agree with this answer. I do my own and have no issues with them. I am not going to let them grow for six weeks. And my eyebrows are sparse. I think as long as you start them and end them in the proper spot anyone looks fine with however they chose to do their eyebrows.
Elizabeth Erne (Sat, 12 Nov 2011 13:39:12 -0800): I find just a cheap eyebrow pencil in a matching color to your eyebrows works fine. I also love using eyebrow stencils to make sure they somewhat match saccharin others.
