15 Eyebrow trends of 2017 that should never be seen again
Technically, 2017 was the year of the rooster, but we all know it was actually the year of the brow. Seriously, have you noticed how many "brow trends" have popped up over the course of the year?
You could say it's thanks to the likes of Cara Delivigne and the other bushy-browed girls out there showing us that we need to appreciate and tend to our eyebrows more. For me, it was when I was watching an ep of Next Top Model a few years ago and they did a challenge where the girls had to bleach their eyebrows and it just looked freaky.
Thanks to Instagram and all the makeup savvy figures of inspiration out there, no-one's left in the lurch anymore about what the hell to do with their newly acquired brow shaping kits. And since then, people have gotten damn creative with the furry little tufts of hair on their foreheads.
But while it may be fun to play around with our brows, let's just say that things went a liiittle too far this year. Like, seriously – did we really need McDonald's brows? No. Now let's look back at the year and revisit some of the other atrocious trends that popped up, and bid adieu to them forever. You had your time in the spotlight, but now it's time to go.
1. Ponytail brows
What are you, five?
2. Squiggle brows
To make you look permanently confused
3. Lighting bolt brows
Well, they sure are striking
4. Christmas tree brows
Of course there's a design for the festive season
5. Feather brows
These just make me feel uncomfortable somehow
6. Rainbow brows
Nope, just nope
7. Dragon brows
For the inner Khaleesi in you
8. Negative space brows
What is going on here?
9. Braided brows
I think most of these were photoshopped
10. Or... stuck on
11. Gucci snake eyebrows
They are on trend, I'll give you that
12. McDonald's brows
Another branded brow that just shouldn't exist
13. Barbed wire brows
This looks SO ODD
14. Carved brows
15. And finally... this
I have no words
Ladies, it's time to put your pencils and brow brushes down. Step away from the mirror slowly with your hands above your head and promise me we won't be seeing any of these trends next year. Okay? Let's have a good start to the new year.
