What is the purpose of the eye brow?
I'm sitting on the crapper staring at the mirror, this is where I do my best thinking. And then it dawns on me, why do we have eyebrows?

We cut our hair, shave our legs, arm pits, and that other place (wink, wink), men shave their beards and mustaches. I understand leg hair and arm hair, it protects us from chaffing with our clothes, hair, beards, mustaches, probably a left over from our neanderthal days to protect us from the cold, eye lashs and nose hair are filters...but what purpose does the eyebrow serve? And, of all the hair on our body, why do we never have to shave it( excluding really old men)?

We have eyebrows because that area of the face is where the sun hits most directly. Eyebrows protect us from sunburn, or at least they evolved that way. As to why we don't have to shave them, we don't HAVE to shave any place on our bodies. We do because it looks better, but we don't shave eyebrows because that would not look better haha. Hope i helped!

So we can tell the true color of someone's coif.

Your eyebrow is to protect your eye from stuff falling in it from above.

Eyebrows are a very significant aspect of our appearance. They are one of the most distinctive features that make up our faces, and we pay a lot of attention to them. We think of some types of eyebrows as attractive and some as unattractive, and many people spend as much time preening their eyebrows as they do applying makeup to their eyelashes or lips. Eyebrows are also one of our most expressive facial features. One of the clearest ways to tell somebody what you're thinking is to simply move your eyebrows up or down -- we all know what different eyebrow positions mean.
So, eyebrows obviously serve a lot of functions in our culture today -- beauty, nonverbal communication, distinctive appearance. But why are they there in the first place? As we evolved and lost most of the thick hair on our bodies, why did we keep that little bit over the eyes?

Scientists aren't entirely sure why we kept this hair, but they have a pretty good guess. We know that eyebrows help keep moisture out of our eyes when we sweat or walk around in the rain. The arch shape diverts the rain or sweat around to the sides of our face, keeping our eyes relatively dry. The most obvious advantage of this is that it lets us see clearly when we're sweating a lot or out in the rain. Without eyebrows, getting around in these conditions is a little more difficult. The shape of your brow itself diverts a certain amount of moisture, but eyebrows make a significant difference in your ability to see. Diverting the sweat away is also good because the salt in sweat irritates the eyes, making them sting a little.

To keep sweat from dripping into our eyes.

Eyebrows define the eyes. They're quite expressive on their own.

i like the wink wink part LOL

To keep sweat out of your eyes.

I guess it's just one of those things, like why do humans retain their tailbones?

To drain sweat from your forehead away from your eyes.

Well we would all look really stupid without eyebrows, now wouldnt we.

so we all don't look like Dr. Evil

Ok, took me a while to stop laughing, I turned and read this off to my wife, she want to know why I only have 1 really long eyebrow?

Jack Kerouac
i knwo why---but for you to find out ratehr than answer you---shave them off and find out why.....

to prevent less sweat going into your eyes. it's like a barrier.

We are not neanderthals but are homosapeins! LOL!!!

hey there
to keep from stuff getting in your eye

For girls, eyebrows are for plucking (or waxing or threading), and then to be drawn back in with an eyebrow pencil.

Go figure!

You have your eyebrows to protect your eyes. Say you were in a sandstorm, the eyebrows would partially protect your eyes. Also, so that a lot of water won't drip into our eyes, the hair on the eyebrow would make most of the water drip of, protecting your eye. The eyelashes complete the protecting job. We never have to shave our eyebrows because they don't really grow. They grow like 1 inch every 2 years or something. Some people don't grow eyebrows at all. Eyebrows are very important for your survival (in a way).

They help to divert water AWAY from the eyes when it rains & your hair is dripping down your face... :)

it's to help keep things from getting in your eyes. also, it helps create expression (this probably isnt why it was evolved...but eyebrow movement is very expressive of emotion). Also, many people wax, pluck, and, yes, cut their eyebrows. We don't "have" to cut or shave the things you mentioned, it is all our idea of beauty and cleaniliness.

The details in the beginning of your remarks made me laugh. First of all, was it necessary to tell us you were "on the crapper"? Secondly, what girl calls it a crapper?

God had a purpose for everything. I'm not sure that purpose is still valid for eyebrows though. Many women, especially in the middle east have them removed and get a tattoo or use a whateveryoucallit pencil to draw them.

Your eyebrows divert sweat droplets, raindrops, and shower water from running into your eyes, and help keep dust from eyes. Eyebrows express emotions. Perhaps most important is the `eyebrow flash', a rapid up-and-down flick of the eyebrows that conveys recognition and approval."

it helps pronounce your facial expressions

For the same reason we have eye lashes...to keep dust and what not from getting into our eyes if it falls from above

Shave yours and let me know

Having worked at an Eye and Ear Hospital, I can assure you it is to keep stuff from going into the eye and ripping up the cornea.

It's mostly to trap sweat and stuff and prevent it from getting into your eyes, kind of like your eyelashes.

To stop sweat getting in your eyes, same with eyelashes too.

To keep dust, and particles from entering the eye, especially from above.

I used to think it was to keep sweat and stuff out of your eyes. But then I noticed the other day that my friend's dog had longer hair above her eyes and I thought, "Why would an animal who has hair over her entire body need eye brows to keep stuff out of her eyes?" And that's when I realized...WE HAVE EYE BROWS TO HELP US COMMUNICATE WITH ONE ANOTHER.

Come on...how much sweat can our eye brows REALLY stop? Once they're saturated the sweat just keeps running down. It is the shape of our skull that helps divert sweat from our eyes, not the eye brows. And it is our eye lashes that keep dust and debris out.

Do they help? Maybe. But the reason humans have evolved with eye brows is for communication.
