You should know by now that I can go on for hours about eyebrows. It’s getting more and more compulsive… Rehab is calling 🙂
But you have to admit, it’s an interesting topic! How these few tiny pieces of hair can change so much for a womans’ face, is just fascinating. An eyebrow can even make you famous!

No brows for Mona Lisa. Result: Decades of discussions on what she is expressing.
Even in ancient Egypt, the eyebrow was an important element in female expression.
Throughout the last century, eyebrow-fashion changed almost every decade.
A brief look…
During the twenties and thirties, eyebrows were very thin, round and going downwards at the end.
Brows during the fourties were still quite thin, but already had a more natural shape.
The fifties-brow is sexy, full, perfectly shaped, with the highest point off 2/3 of the eyebrow.
The sixties-brow is a softer, slightly fuller version of the fifties-brow.
The eighties exposed full, bushy brows. Hardly any epilation going on here!
In my humble opinion, the nineties-brow is the worst of them all! Way too thin and artificial.
Nowadays we go for natural, slightly groomed eyebrows, with power!
