If the eyes are the windows to the soul, eyebrows are the curtains around those windows. And most of us? We don’t know how to fix those curtains at all. Enter Joey Healy, one of the foremost brow experts in the world. Seriously, this guy cannot shut up about how much he loves eyebrows. He took one look at Amelia’s brows, which might have been a bit over-plucked, and came up with a game plan. We share his tips in the video above and after the jump! Keep reading »
Perpetually surprised cat Sam is a special boy — and a bonafide Innnnnerweb sensation. He’s got markings on his face that resemble kitty eyebrows, and it’s super cute because humans love nothing more than anthropomorphizing animals. But not as cute as what my friend Michelle Collins did with Sam, in GIF form, which you can see after the jump…

Every once in a while, I get my eyebrows professionally threaded. But for the most part, I tweeze. Because I’m lazy, and also anxiety-prone and ripping out eyebrow hairs feels somehow calming. But most tweezers? Totally ineffectual. It’s so hard to see the hairs! But not anymore. Revlon finally put two and two together and realized that to adequately tweeze you’ve got to be able to see the effing hairs. So they created the Revlon Spotlight Tweezer With LED Technology, and added a small LED light to their latest tweezers, and holy crap, what an improvement. You can actually see the hairs — even the little ones that are super wispy and easy to miss. Better tweezing through science! [$10.99, Drugstore.com]
Ladies, welcome to the future. The future is eyebrow threading. It’s not new — in fact it’s an old, old tradition — but threading has usurped plucking as the way to get rid of unwanted hair. At least in my book. Keep reading »
Are you dissatisfied with your eyebrows? Would you like to replace your measly sperm-shaped squiggles with, say, the lush, well-groomed brows of one Kim Kardashian? Well, now you can — there’s organ transplants, there’s hair transplants, and now I introduce to you eyebrow transplants. Dr. Sanusi Umar of DermHair Clinic in Redondo Beach, California, an expert in hair transplant and replacement surgery, (down by the ocean, it was so dismal…) developed an innovational procedure called “uGraft” that uses a patient’s leg or arm hair to fabricate a whole new eyebrow. Lest you suffer mental images of sliced-off skin and sewn-on strands, let me tell you how the good doctor goes about this: using no scalpel, stitches, or incisions, Dr. Umar practices a specialized “single follicle extraction and transfer” technique. Apparently, the most requested eyebrows belong to Kim K. Lovely eyebrows they are, but I don’t think I’ll be rushing to get this procedure any time soon, thanks. [The Stir]
It’s easy to underestimate the importance of eyebrows to the overall structure of your face. We all have them and they’re just sort of there, being eyebrows, naturally growing into whatever state they please. Some of us take it a step further by waxing, tweezing, or threading our brows, or maybe even all of the above. What many women don’t know, however, is just how much a tiny tweak of the brow can change your entire look. Spending a little extra time on your brows in the morning can take years off your face. It can make you feel prettier and look more put-together, even on your worst days. In fact, I find that if I do nothing else with makeup, simply grooming and filling in my brows makes me look worlds better than if I had left them be. Fixing them up isn’t hard — in fact, once you figure out what works for you, chances are it’ll become the easiest step in your makeup routine. Keep reading »
Got a thing for dudes with thick … brows? (What did you think I was going to say?) Then you’ll be into this gallery of hot celeb dudes who leave the tweezers to the ladies. Read more…
Chanel is one of the biggest trendsetters season after season. After all, we’re talking about the brand that made temporary tattoos chic. Global creative director of beauty Peter Philips is inarguably a makeup mastermind and his bedazzled eyebrows are nothing if not striking, but I pray that this latest venture will not be the next one to make its way off the runway and out into the streets. High fashion is high fashion for a reason. This is the reason.
Sure, eyebrows are important because they keep the sweat out of our eyes. But in the case of Anne Hathaway, they prevent her from looking like one of the aliens in “Mars Attacks.” [247Lol.net]
We’ve done some terrible things to our eyebrows in the past, but in recent years we’ve learned the key to great brows is leaving them alone.
