The History Of The Eyebrow Evolution

Eyebrows do not just frame your unique face shape. According to Physiognomy or face reading, it represents the mental outlook of a person and his point of views. Though the mental outlook still remains the same even after plucking or drawing them but initially it helps to define a person’s personality.  

In fact, a person’s whole personality can be analyzed just by looking at his/her face shape, eyes, nose bridge, mouth or jawline. This is the reason why everyone doesn’t looks the same. Therefore, finding the best shaped eyebrows to flatter your face can be hard sometimes.  

Back in the 90s when thin was in trend, pop stars like Christina Aguilera sported super tweezed eyebrows. Brows now have become an intense topic. And not a day goes by when we don’t discuss marveling new trends for reshaping and enhancing one’s looks. There is a diversified history of brows, from earliest civilizations till today. Learn everything you need to know about brow shaping and arches ahead:-

Eyebrow Trends: Across the World, Over the Years…

Early Middle Ages

The important feature of this age was the forehead. Women plucked their hairlines and removed their brows to draw attention towards their forehead.

Queen Elizabeth I had strawberry blonde eyebrows which inspired many women in her country to dye their hair and brows to similar reddish blonde.

People back then did not have alternatives to shape their brows daily like we have in present times. We have various options available like eyebrow tattooing, eyebrow feathering or micro pigmentation, brow extensions that can be applied similarly to eyelash extensions and last about 3-5 weeks.

Eyebrow Tattooing

Eyebrow trends are ever-evolving.

It is also known as Cosmetic tattooing, 3-D eyebrow embroidery, etching, feathering or micro balding where needle pin or machine is used to grow hair in a way creating the trendy brow shapes. It is a form of semi-permanent beauty technique that can last up to two years depending upon the touch ups you get in between, individual’s skin type and how well it holds the pigment. Unlike placing of pigments into the lower layers of the skin as in ‘normal’ tattooing, it uses a micro blade.

A fine blade consisting of a line of tiny needles is dipped in pigment. It is then gently stroked across the skin to ‘create’ fine hairs that resemble the person’s own eyebrows.   It can be used to fill in thin brows, extend or thicken existing brows or create brows lost due to any disease or over-plucking. The pigments that are used are made up of natural plant-based, or synthetic.

Brow shaping with wax and tint

Different techniques are used across the world for shaping your brows. Like Eyebrow tint which is a form of semi-permanent hair dye formulated specifically for use on the eyebrows. Which helps in making your brows look thick or thin, which ever way you wish to have it. But tinting is a sensitive process so research well before you get it done.

Eyebrow threading is also a way which removes short hair in a row to brow tinting which, according to certain theories, started being practiced in India over 6000 years ago and later spread throughout Asia.

The Arabic word for threading is ‘Khite’; in Egypt, it is also called ‘Fatlah’. It is a widely practiced form of brow shaping in India.


Threading is widely practiced amongst Iranians. But it was originally only done when a woman was getting married or for special occasions. In ancient Iran, threading was a sign that a girl had reached her adulthood.  

This eyebrow trend is also very popular in China and other East Asian countries, such as Korea. It was historically done on brides and married women.  

So, follow these popular eyebrow trends instead of getting your hair tweez and plucking those extra hair follicles, for the look you wish. And now, that won’t even take up your time and concentration in the morning. It is everyone’s dream to wake up with eyebrows of Hollywood celebs like Lily Collins, Cara Delevingne, and the likes, isn’t it? So hurry up go get the ones you want.
