Fashion is ever changing. Each season, there is a new trend or fad for the masses to follow. A trend that has not necessarily been set by a designer, but has been making way for over 50 years, has reached that point where we all start to stop, stare, and well, notice. Coincidentally, this trend has been right under our noses the whole time…ok, maybe right above…but either way eyebrows that are currently in trend are those of thicker, less arched varieties. Have you noticed, stars such as Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly have been trimming their brows to this not-so-new trend.
Calling all Mrs. Twizzermen, put the tweezers down and stop plucking. With this news hitting the blogosphere, many girls are coming forward about their habits of over plucking. Read some of these blogs, these girls are tormenting themselves with an obsession to tweeze and pluck. Many of these bloggers are talking about new ways to keep them tame, but to not go overboard.
Many say that this trend in fashion has come from the whole androgynous thing. Men dressing like women, women dressing like men, do we want to look the same or be treated the same. Reported by the Huffington Post, spokesman, Mark Soldin, for the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons, told the Independent; “Upward curvature of the eyebrows was considered to be an attractive feminine feature in the past. We are finding that more and more women are looking for a flatter, straighter, more masculine look. I think it has to do with the increasing equality of the sexes. Women are subconsciously favouring a masculine brow.”
What do you think? Are we trying to be more masculine?
Back to you over tweezers, some women are even resorting to hair transplant surgery to fill in those spots that they plucked too many times. I say, use a little self restraint and try alternatives like eyebrow threading.
