Teen Mom star, Farrah Abraham, received criticism after she waxed her three-year-old daughter’s unibrow. 

The 21-year-old single mother, known for her extensive plastic surgery procedures, wrote a lengthy blog post detailing the removal of her daughter’s brow.

Farrah wrote, “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.”

Farrah told her daughter about the little ‘issue’ and showed her how she waxes her eye brows. Putting a towel in the three-year-olds hand, she attempted to remove the hair. 

She wrote, “The second a dab hit the uni, she touched it with the towel she had in her hand. 

“So now wax was in the towel. I yanked it back ASAP, but fuzz was not stuck to the wax, [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.”

Once Sophia was asleep Farrah got her tweezers and plucked the rest of the hairs.

The next morning Farrah said Sophia was intrigued and OK with up-keeping her ‘non-unibrow’.

Farrah ended the blog saying, “I feel like a good mom.”


While Farrah feels like a good mum, her actions have caused an onslaught of backlash from the public. With many questioning her motives.

One reader commented, “See how it's all about Farrah? She felt bad for Sophia for having thick eyebrows, but I am sure that Sophia didn't notice or care. She projected her insecurities onto her little 3 year old, which is sad.” 

Another reader was concerned about Sophia's delicate skin. 

“As a cosmetologist I can tell you it’s not good to wax that young, tweeze? I wouldn’t on my 3 year old but it’s better than waxing. Her skin is still very thin at that age and [waxing it] could be damaging. Why not just let her be a baby girl a while longer?”

Most of the comments were overwhelmingly negative but others were quick to support Farrah's actions.

"Does everyone on here get this upset over babies and little girls getting their ears pierced? Because if not, you're all hypocrites,” wrote a supporter.

What do you think? Is waxing a three-year-old's unibrow justifiable or is it encouraging an unhealthy self image? Comment below or join the discussion on the EK Forums
