salam, i heard that if ones eyebrows are defective, that is manly in appearence then one can tidy it up to some extent, not by shaping or arching, since prophet s.a.w cursed the women that emulated the jahil women by arching their eyebrows, is this permissable? that is to tidy up defective eyebrows by removing the excess hair? jazak allah hu khairun.
