Eyebrows: The Final Frontier

Specially groomed eyebrows a headache at Oregon high school

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A Portland high school is raising eyebrows with its brow grooming policy: shave ’em or go home.

Some students at Centennial High School have shaved vertical lines into their eyebrows in a trend recently made popular by hip-hop star Soulja Boy. School officials say the mark looks like a gang symbol.

Centennial administrators are telling students with the lines that they can’t return to school until they shave their eyebrows off. Assistant Principal Mark Porterfield said the students are not suspended, but they are not allowed in school until they cooperate.

Four students have been sent home. One returned with a bandage covering the shaved brow.

Police say gangs have co-opted the trend for their own use, with one gang’s members marking themselves by shaving one line into an eyebrow and three lines in the other to symbolize 13.

So of course this raised my curiosity.

I found out that shaving someone’s eyebrows off is a popular prank, with loads of YouTube videos documenting it.

Then I came across two videos in which guys shaved all of their facial hair off. And a third where the guy daily documents his eyebrows growing back.

Since I already have two YouTube videos on the front page here, three more will form a clog, so click the link to watch.

Update: I’ve added a fourth that shows actual slitted eyebrows.
