Neatening the eyebrows

Q: Is it allowed to pluck the extra hairs on the eyebrows if a woman has broad and irregular eyebrows. She is not doing it to keep thin the eyebrows. It is only to look good for her husband.

A: Shaping the eyebrows is impermissible, however removing the overgrown hair and making it look normal is permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
