Website Wednesday:

As a follow up to last weeks feature on Beard Team USA this week we're going to move a few inches north and celebrate... the monobrow!

In case you need clarification, wikipedia can give use some additional information: it seems that the monobrow, or unibrow, which is medically known as a synophrys, refers to a hypertrophy and merging of the eyebrows-- basically, the presence of abundant hair between the eyebrows, so that they seem to converge to form one long eyebrow. If you STILL need clarification (which seems impossible, but I will pander to your whims), here are some famous monobrows...

Behold, Bert and Frida.

Now. I don't want you to think that monobrows are a thing of the past. On the contrary, monobrows are alive and well... in fact, there is a thriving monobrow community, located at none other than . This group has a mission statement, and a deeply moving call to arms... "You're not alone., celebrating the unity of your eyebrows".

I'm pretty sure my favorite feature is the monobrow of the week although the game of Memory comprised entirely of pictures of monobrows is also something special. Fortunately, they also supply a series of helpful links, including ones on management of unibrows and appropriate tools to use.
