What is your opinion on the subject? Yeah, I know the proper shape depends on many factors, but still. I'm currently pondering over the thing that some men have sharp edges of the eyebrows in their highest corners. Is it appropriate?

Highest corners?

Men do well not to shape eyebrows. I try to maintain a clean hairline on the outer edge of my brows.

As you said, there are lots of factors - the shape of your face, the shape of your brows, the color of your brow hair, your style etc.. I'd recommend experimenting, but obviously do so very carefully or you'll be wandering into chola land. I guess the best advice to give would be to ask someone you trust, like your boyfriend, what the best shape is.

My hair stylist sometimes trims my eyebrows if I fall asleep in the chair. I don't really notice much of a difference.

unless you got a unibrow, just leave it alone. When I notice a guy with trimmed eyebrows, I have a hard time taking him seriously as a man.

Boyfriend? Are you kidding me?

Most of the celebrities have their eyebrows plucked. Just google their shots. Musicians, actors, etc. Here is the example.

And yes, it looks like the guy at the picture of your profile has his eyebrows plucked. At least, his eyebrows look suspiciously groomed.

Well, you were asking about how to pluck your eyebrows, I just assumed.....

I don't know any men who pluck their eyebrows, so the OP's post struck me as a bit unusual. I assumed the same, though recognizing there's nothing wrong with that.

Are you serious? Just google any celebrity pictures. What do they do with their eyebrows as they look that nice and refined? Anyway, I posted you the T.I. picture before who sure as hell plucked his eyerows.
