Well, It’s normal for babies to be hairy when they are born. Once the child reaches toddlerhood, the unibrow will likely disappear by itself. If it still exists in his or her childhood, you can discuss possibilities with him or her.
The treatment of a unibrow is similar to that of trimming fingernails or hair. Whenever he or she reaches an older age and doesn’t like it, don’t make a big deal out of it, but just say that some people pluck and some don’t. It’s your decision.

Is Unibrow Genetic?
Yes, there’s a unibrow gene. Unibrows are recessive genetic traits. In a recent study published in Nature Communications, researchers identified specific genes that are associated with hair density, greying, curling, and brow fusion. There is a gene known as PAX3 that produces unibrows in some people (particularly, men).
Unibrows tend to be more common in men, though they can occur in either gender. There are many western countries where women prefer to remove their extra hair.
There are a few celebrities who have unibrows. But Frida Kahlo is perhaps most famous for her unibrow, which appears prominently in her iconic self-portraits.
What is a unibrow a sign of?
The unibrow (or monobrow) occurs when the two eyebrows meet above the bridge of the nose.
Unibrows are usually not a cause for concern. Generally, a unibrow simply indicates that you have thick or abundant hair. There’s nothing inherently negative about unibrows, and they don’t necessarily mean anything’s wrong.
Some cultures consider the unibrow (also called monobrow) a sign of good luck. For men, they are believed to represent virility and fertility.
When did you start plucking your eyebrows?
No younger than 16–18 years old. You can start plucking at those ages. You should never over-pluck or wax your eyebrows leaving them thin or arched. When the follicle dies, you’re stuck with the look.
If you want to wax your eyebrows, wax only sparsely growing hairs that grow under the arch and shape them naturally. Having natural brow shapes makes you look younger and prettier as you age.
The appropriate age to groom eyebrows depends on the method. An aesthetician suggests waiting until 20 before plucking to avoid accidental over-tweezing. For waxing, it is recommended to wait until the age of 14, when the skin’s sensitivity begins to drop off.
