Brow Trends Over the last hundred years brow trends have changed so much! It is such an important feature of the face. So let’s take a journey to from past to present to see the evolution of eyebrows over the years. Above is the popular 1920’s brow design. Starting at the corner of the eye going all the way down to the temple. They were very thin and fairly straight across. This look gives a very pensive look to the face.
Thank goodness for the 40’s! Ladies started to let their eyebrows grow in a little thicker with that slight arch of the 30’s. This was a big change in the appearance of woman giving them a bit more of a youthful look. A very big change from the serious appearance of the thin brows from years past!
Then came the glamorous 50’s! Woman were taking on a very feminine look with a thick corner to middle and a very defined arch. Such a change and step forward for fashion trends. The 60’s brow trends were not much different from the full glamorous brows of the 50’s. Woman were found more attractive thinner with thicker eyebrows. The curvy body type of the 1950’s was changing but brows were able to stay a natural full appearance! When the hippies of the 70’s started to become more prevalent eyebrow started taking on a shape with a thick ball starting at the corner of the eye and moving into a thin more arched appearance at the ends. Jane Fonda is a good example of this trend. Welcome to the 80’s! A time when everything was big Big BIG in brow trends! Including hair and eyebrows. Tweezing was no longer a part of maintenance. Thick natural shaggy eyebrows was all the craze! This trend continued into the 90’s. They were just a bit cleaner and better kept then past eyebrows of the 1980’s. This trend has (thankfully) continued into the 2000’s! Natural well kept and shaped eyebrows are what it is all about! It is important to not over tweeze the hair on our eyebrows.
