Is this the fashion now?

One example would be Aaron Lennon (of Spurs). There are others in the public eye but I fail to remember who exactly....

No it's not the fashion now, people have been doing it for years. Years ago I let a friend shave a slit in mine and he took half my eyebrow off.

People often ask me why I do it, I have to tell them I have a stripe because of a scar from a hit and run accident years ago.

In related news I did once shave off half of my other eyebrow by mistake when my hand slipped with hair clippers.

Maybe he is a bit like my other half, who has to shave his as otherwise they join his hair line. It amazes me how hairy his face is, I think in a few years he will look like the teen wolf!!!
But I suppose at least he won't go bald!!!

My brothers got that... though its becaus he fell over at the side of swimming pool when very young and its a scar.

Anyone who does it on purpose is an idiot really... can't see the appeal.

Probably for the same reason they shave shapes into their head hair

Still is round here. Two of the fifth year students are vying for the maximum number of slices they can get out of each eybrow. They were made for each other.

Cheap fashion statement, maximum impact.

btw, Anyone seen Shark ?

Bad news, I'm afraid. Hairy men tend to have higher levels of testosterone, which has been shown to speed up hair loss later in life. He'll still have a hairy face, but nothing much up top.
