I’ve always been drawn to thick, dark eyebrows. I love the drama and definition they bring to the face, and I get so excited when “bold brows” are declared a trend (this has happened approximately once a year for the past 50 years) and fashion designers start sending models down the runway with giant black smears over their eyes to really drive the point home.
That might be an extreme example, but seriously, strong brows are the best, and here are my top 10 reasons why … [Above: Camilla Belle rocks some awesome arches] Keep reading »
Despite being able to grow thick hair really fast on my head, I can’t seem to grow in my eyebrows regardless of how long I wait between threading sessions. The hair always grows where I don’t want it and remains sparse where I do. So I’ve been filling in my brows with pencils and powders for almost a decade. And I think I’ve finally found the best one.

Tweezing is way too painful to be glamorous or pampering. But if you add a little Betsey Johnson to the experience, you can at least feel fabulous while you pluck. Betsey has teamed up with Tweezerman to create the Betsey Johnson Slant Tweezer Collection. Choose from three options: black with a “Marilyn” face, neon pink with white skulls, or white with pink rosebuds. Today is the day to start plucking in style.
We couldn’t find much wrong with Balenciaga’s fall 2010 collection with its rad, funky heels and cozy, collegiate sweaters. But a closer look reveals that several of the models came down the runway with brows dyed in a number of pastel shades. Last year, we saw the weird mini-trend of people bleaching their brows, or even shaving them off. Will the next wave of fashion extremists now adopt this more colorful take? Keep reading »

Eyebrows are like the picture frame of your face: just a small detail but it changes the your whole appearance. So when your brows are out of wack, don’t be surprised if even the most over-plucked or bushy-browed citizens start looking at you funny. Keep your look in-check with our tips for picking the perfect shape for your eyebrows.
Like most people, I have a list of physical traits I really don’t like about myself. I hesitate to use the word “hate,” because that sounds so … I don’t know — junior high, I guess, so I’ll just say that I really don’t like my receding chin, crooked fingers, thick hips and thin eyebrows (among other things). And while I can pretty much blame genetics for most of these shameful traits, I have only myself to blame for the state of my eyebrows. Back in college, they were much fuller, but then I started tweezing them with gusto (hey, it was the ’90s!). More recently I started having them threaded on a regular basis and now they’re thin, sparse lines that don’t even trail to the corner of my eyes, but stop about halfway to where they should go. Still, I stop short (pun intended) at the idea of getting an eyebrow transplant. Yes, you read that right — an eyebrow transplant! Keep reading »
