If our eyes are the windows to our souls, our eyebrows are the frames. I’m sure you’ve all seen the photos of celebs sans brows and get why they are so crucial. (If you haven’t, Google it now!) It’s true, as the frame work for our face, our brows convey so much. They can change your entire look! If you have the wrong shape, people may think you’re always angry or surprised. A too thin brow can get lost on your forehead and not be flattering to your face shape.
Brow shape trends have changed a lot over the years. In the 20’s, half moon shapes were all the rage as women danced the night away to the Charleston. Thin brows stayed on trend until the 50’s when Audrey Hepburn made waves and rocked her iconic fuller brow. In the 70’s a more carefree natural look was favored which then segued into the Brooke Shields big brow era in the 80’s. During the 90’s brows ranged in size and shape, but usually erred on the side of too thin and we wished we could have urged people to “put the tweezers down!!”
Flash forward to now, 2015, and the brow game is strong and possibly more important than ever. Full and natural brows are back, but that does not by any means indicate unruly. Unkempt eyebrows can speak volumes about you and may even give off a not so great impression. Even if it may not be true, statements like “Don’t trust anyone with bad eyebrows.” have been circling the web for quite some time now. Although we don’t necessarily agree with such harsh sentiments, we think you should get them cleaned up just to be on the safe side. 😉
