Throughout the history of fashion, eyebrows have been integral in either making or breaking a look. Yes, it’s true that even though they are often overlooked, eyebrows are extremely important when it comes to fashion.
In the 20s and 30s, extremely thin eyebrows were all the rage. Greta Garbo had painting on, black lines for her eyebrows. It was a different time. In the 50s and 60s, brows were pretty tame, and in the 80s, they got huge. Of course, in the 1990s, we saw brows go from super big to extremely small. It was a similar fashion to the 1920s and 30s.
Today, eyebrows are good in all styles, but most women opt to have larger, thicker brows that are neatly tamed with dips, gels, powders and pens.
How to Tame Your Brows
If you’d like to get your brows tamed for the times, here are some hints.
- Try tweezing your brows yourself.
Start by tweezing your brows yourself. Make sure that you have a shape in mind, and don’t stray from your desired plan. It can be easy to want to do something drastic, but you may end up taking off half of your brow if you do this.
- Try getting your brows waxed by professionals.
Let professionals do your brows with wax if you don’t feel that you can do it yourself.
- Go for threading.
Threading is an ancient Indian technique for getting rid of unwanted hair. Some say that it is less painful than waxing.
