Awesome, totally want to hang this in my bathroom someday.
My eyebrows and I have been through a bit of a battle my whole life. I look back at my second grade picture (Haley, you know the one) where I am wearing a hooded button down that is lookin' pretty gender neutral with jagged bangs and hair I did myself. My teeth are the size of chicklets, large, white, and so square. And my eyebrows. For a girl who had fairly light hair, that was sooooo scraggly and thin, sure had a whole lot of eyebrows. They were bushy and noticeable. Those are some unfortunate school pictures.
Anyway, I think I started plucking my eyebrows in maybe 8th grade? Could have been 7th. And of course, they got over plucked. Then I went through a daring phase in Jr. High where I would shave them (NOT all of them but instead of plucking the random hairs, I would try and shave them). This led to me once knicking my eyebrow leaving a bald spot that I had to fill in. That taught me a lesson.

Just like all trends, eyebrow styles change. They pretty much just get super thin and super thick and everywhere in between. I don't believe I have ever had perfect eyebrows. It's a tricky thing to achieve. Currently (the past two years or so), the big trend is to have full, luscious, brows. We're talking, like, the 80's (and many other eras). So, I should wish back my second grade eyebrows. I actually quite like the fuller brow. Some get pretty out of control but if done tastefully, they look nice. I feel like the fuller brows appear more natural and it's actually suppose make you look younger! So lets look at some famous ladies' brows, shall we?
|Mary-Kate and Ashley (or vise versa, I dunno). |
Their brows sometimes get out of control but this one is pretty tame.
|The always beautiful, Rachel Weisz.|
|Camilla Belle not only has full brows but very dark. Work it!|
|Fuzzy brows riddle the runways the past few years.|
As mentioned before, the full eyebrow look is obviously a repeat trend.
|Of course, Elizabeth Taylor's.|
|Sophia Loren rocked her full arched brows back in the day.|
There it is, the full brow. Will you be embracing this natural, sometimes whacky, trend? Would you fill in your eyebrows to achieve this look?
P.S. I realize it's been a while since I took pictures with my camera and put them up so I will do it soon, I swear it!
