We bald beauties simply have no control
over the loss of our precious hair follicles, especially the ones that
are overtly noticeable, such as our eyebrows. It is something we have
come to deal with and accept as an inevitable part of medical hair
loss. We have creatively learned to apply makeup to give the illusion
of eyebrows or actually have a tattoo to replace our brows. We strive
to look as normal as possible - but then again - WHO decides what is
normal and what is not in the fashion world? There is a “no eyebrow” trend
that is gaining momentum in the world of fashion. It all began this
summer when fashion models emerged on the runway, beginning with
Balenciaga and Prada, with no eyebrows. They graced the runways with a
blank, expressionless look resembling that of a mannequin. Initially,
this look was quite a shock, but it’s beginning to appear on the
sidewalks and is being called “elegant and fashionable”. Copying the
models that grace our runways is a challenge, however this trend is
quite simple and does not require a diet but simply a razor or waxing!
Print ads showed eyebrow-less models (even the very famous Victoria
Secret model, Adriana Lima showed off her big hazel eyes without any
caterpillars hovering over them.) It seems as though more and more
women are ridding themselves of their brows!
Nobody knows how long this trend will last, since there are negative
opinions (as there are with most things), but for now all of us bald
beauties should enjoy it to the fullest. What’s next? Head shaving?
