Beauty trends come and go but if eyebrow history tells us anything, thick brows always find a way back into the limelight. Thanks to celebrities such as Cara Delevingne and Lilly Colins, thick eyebrows have been one of the hottest trends in beauty within the past decade. Since 2015, studies found that sales of eyebrow grooming and treatment products increased by +250%, with some eyebrow growth serums seeing an increase of +200%. Across the country, women are paying top dollar for eyebrow growth serums that may or may not help them achieve the natural full brows they seek. But can we blame them? It feels like only a few years ago women were waxing, tweezing, and some even shaving off their brows to achieve wispy fine brows like Kate Moss, Pamela Anderson, and Gwen Stefani. With beauty trends constantly changing (and botched eyebrow jobs happening regularly), could microblading be the key to easily going thinker?
Microblading is a new form of tattooing where pigment is embedded under the skin with hair-like strokes by a handheld tool. Unlike eyebrow extensions or drawing on your brows every morning, microblading offers a hassle-free option for those who always want their eyebrows ‘on fleek’ without the constant upkeep. Celebrities like Bella Thorne have embraced the new approach to the always-perfect full brow. The process is a little painful but anesthetics are usually used to keep clients feeling as comfortable as possible. While microblading is most loved for its low maintenance nature, it does require some attention after the procedure to keep your brows from fading or infection. The bright side: the results can last up to three years. As the pigment fading rate varies from person to person, it is recommended to go in for touch-ups every year. A few days of maintenance for years of your ideal brow? Yes, please.
While thin brows have their glory decades such as the 20s, 30s, and 90s, we can always count on a Joan Crawford, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Nina Simone, Brooke Shields, Whitney Houston, Madonna, or Cara Delevingne to give life to a full brow resurgence.
