The presidential debate is tonight…and we might have the scoop on which candidate has an edge in the coming election. The Grooming Lounge, curator of fine men’s grooming products in Washington, DC, has had great success predicting past Presidential winners based on… (wait for it)… “The Eyebrow Index.”

According to The Grooming Lounge, seven of the past eight elections have been won by the candidate with the best-groomed eyebrows! Spoiler alert: It looks like Obama’s got the upper-hand on this one. Here’s what else they had to say about the current grooming-state of your 2012 candidates:

Mitt Romney

  • The Hair: “While its conservative nature might be a hit with key constituents, Mr. Romney’s hair is way too ‘helmet-like’ to attract to appeal to fringe or wavering younger demographics. A solid haircut aimed at reducing overall bulk would make him look more ‘main street’ like a regular citizen.”
  • The Brows: “Our research shows that nine of the last 10 elections have been won by the candidate with more well-groomed groomed eyebrows. Mr. Romney needs to do some tidying of his to grab an edge.”

Barack Obama

  • The Hair: “The stress and strain of the job has understandably turned his hair grey – particularly the temple areas.  While coloring his entire head would be a bit too noticeable and drastic, we recommend some strategic ‘grey blending’ to re-emphasize the President’s ability to handle pressure, fly below the stress and connect with younger voters.”
  • The Wrinkles: “Compare a current photo of the President to one from his inauguration and you’ll notice he now has some under-eye bags and crow’s feet. While some are clearly a result of aging, our guess is most are stress-induced and can be minimized with targeted eye creams. People want their leader to work hard, but not to look like he’s pulled consecutive all-nighters.”

We’d like to agree. You know how important we feel men’s grooming is here at Spa Week – that’s why we showed you all the great men’s Spa Week treatments available for just $50 this year.

As a final campaign push, we think that Barack and Mitt should definitely head to Lord & Taylor Salon & Spa in Washington, DC for some pre-election grooming: a Gentleman’s Facial and Salon Manicure sounds like just what they need to be ballot-ready.
