Eyebrows, or no eyebrows?

The latest trend of removing one’s eyebrows has been surfacing quite a lot recently. Hollywood stars like Katy Perry and Kim Kardashian leading the way with their bleached eyebrows. This beauty trend can be quite memorizing, in its unique way. For quite some time, it has been popular to have a set of thick brows forming your eyes like defined caterpillars. But, now it is becoming more and more popular to have no eyebrows.

This is not the first time that women have yearned for no eyebrows. Most trends are based on fashion statements from some time in our history. During the renaissance period, a woman was seen as beautiful and highly intelligent if they had a long forehead, seriously thin eyebrows, or no eyebrows at all. They would pluck the hairs from their hairline and brows to give themselves such an illusion. If you are struggling to picture this, just think of the Mona Lisa or The Girl With a Pearl Earring.
