Protection of the eyes as most hair is for protection warmth etc.. Also acts to catch sweat etc from getting in your eyes!  just an opinion..

It's not true, pay no attention, it's because if you didn't have them, you'd look silly. So there function is to stop you looking silly. They do this in a manner of ways, from shopping tips to personal grooming advice; Or am I just lucky.

What is the function of the eyebrow in man?

I don't know why men have them but with women it is to drive us mad - like with Frida Kahlo and, to a lesser extent, Tracy Emin.

This is completely true, mens eye brows hardly ever give shopping advice, but womens don't shut up.
