Was She Wrong? “Teen Mom” Farrah Catches Heat For Waxing Her 3-Year-Old’s Eyebrows

January 8, 2013  |  

If you’ve ever struggled with a ferocious furry unibrow, you know the struggle to get rid of it or to at least hold it at bay is real. I had a friend in high school who had a mean unibrow with a side of Groucho Marx, and she was still getting dudes! It wasn’t until we started going to Homecoming dances and other events as teens that she actually did something about the unibrow, turning it into some FIERCE, clean, arched brows. But if you ask former Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, now 21, the mother of the adorable 3-year-old Sophia, a unibrow needs to be rid of as soon as possible.

When she noticed that Sophia was growing a unibrow that wouldn’t “go away,” Farrah took action and decided to try and wax it to save her daughter the embarrassment of having to walk around with a full furry brow at three years old. She looked at it in the same vein as clipping nails that are growing too long, or hair that is growing at a crazy pace, even though the process to get rid of Sophia’s unibrow was a messy and complicated one. After explaining why she did it and how she felt it benefited Sophia in the long run, she was surprised to see that people were a lot less understanding than she expected. Here’s what she had to say about why she did it, which included because “she felt bad for her”:

Sophia’s UNI-BROW , when is it time? (More #SULIA)

SOOOOOooooo, this is a touchy subject the Unibrow thing.

But recently I could not ignore it, like I know I’ve seen madonna’s duaghter have a stand out uni brow, I remember when I was little I had a unibrow, but I couldn’t remember if there was an age limit, a rule!

So here I am faced with a standout historical moment in motherhood when I can confirm to myself that my little, adorable,most cuddle-able cutie, baby girl has a Unibrow 😦 , I felt bad for her, and I started asking friends…. is this hair just going to fall out… is it just hormones at this age?, well the hair didn’t go away and others started saying it was here to stay.

So I told sophia (my daughter who is a late 3 years old) of the little issue on her brow, and I showed her how I waxed mine off, so I tryed to wax her, the second a dab hit the Uni, she touch it with the towel she had in her hand,

UHHH so now, wax was in the towel, and I yanked it back ASAP, but fuzz was not stuck to the wax stuck to her Uni, OMG moment, So now sophia was freaking out, so I had to act like it was a cool science project to get the wax off.

PLOT TO END THIS: Sophia feel a sleep, I got my tweezers and Pluck-pluck-pluck……soph was now saying ouch or anything and still was asleep, I got most of it off and then finally she woke up..I went to sleep .

The next morning I showed her and told her how well she did and she didn’t even know, She was more intrigued now to be ok with upkeeping her non-unibrow. I could tell she was proud.

Ah I feel like a good mom:) other moms tell me your ideas!


Who knew the unibrow was that touchy of a subject? While I’m all for teaching children the importance of personal grooming as they grow, I don’t think waxing was the way to go. I mean, she’s three year’s old, she’s just becoming more aware of herself, so I doubt Sophia’s little self was standing in the mirror agonizing over her eyebrows. And I don’t know why she felt bad for a 3-year-old. Who does she need to impress at this early stage in her life? But hey, as a new mom (especially a young one), you live and you learn, right?

But what do you think? Should she have waited to groom Sophia’s eyebrows? Or is it not really not that big of a deal?
