    wrinkle your brow = frown

    wrinkle your brow
    to make folds appear on your face above your eyes to show that you are surprised or confused

    frown
    verb [I]
    to bring your eyebrows together so that there are lines on your face above your eyes to show that you are annoyed or worried.

    After I saw these meanings from the dictionary, I think that "wrinkle you brow" and "frown" are same because in both we try to make folds/lines in our brow. Am I right?

    Re: wrinkle your brow = frown

    Wrinkling your brow is when your eyebrows are raised >> http://tinyurl.com/3buek8

    frowning is when your eyebrows are brought together over the nose: http://tinyurl.com/3yotgd

    In the first the lines are horizontal; in the second the lines are vertical.
