Shortening overgrown eyebrows

Question:

Is it muttar for a man to trim his eye brows if they grow a little long and unkempt?

Thanks

Answer:

My understanding of your question is that you want to shorten the hairs so they shouldn’t look so overgrown. It is permitted to trim them since you are  not doing it in a way that women trim their eyebrows, so it isn’t lo tilbash. Additionally, and it is being done not in order to beautify yourself as women do, but in order to avoid embarrassment, therefore it is permitted..
