4. You might even have people lining up around the corner to ask you if they can "do your eyebrows."

5. You probably learned early on: there are a plethora of wrong ways to tackle this problem.

6. You might have thought a shaggy haircut could cover it up.

17. Your hilarious friends constantly recommend the same Halloween costume to you--a joke that never seems to get old.
