Recently, NASA engineer Mark Rober set out to prove what you’ve known all along: Unibrow discrimination is a real problem in this country. (After all, that’s what led to the Total Brow Annihilation of ‘93 when you went HAM with your mom’s Tweezerman). Blessed from birth with bushy brows, Rober ventured to Walmart with a hidden camera, once with a unibrow and once without. He found that people were more willing to engage him in conversation when he was sporting two groomed brows than when he was rocking the Frida Kahlo. He also learned what will come as a shock to no one: teenage girls will whip out their phones for a chance to Instagram anything.
