Brows Through The Ages
“Brows have always been a fashion statement,” says Bella Goode, beauty therapist and proprietor at Bella’s Beauty Lounge. “As the trends have changed over the years, you can look back at old photographs and tell the era from the hairstyle and brow shape. For instance, the ’20s were defined by pencil thin, slightly curved brow, then the ’30s with short rounded brows, and the ’50s with more definition and a pointed arch.”
Who can forget the iconic movie star Marilyn Monroe with her beautifully shaped brows and red lips? Or Audrey Hepburn’s thick, dark brows? The ’60s and ’70s saw the return of the thinner brow, however most famous of all brow trends must be Brooke Shields in the ’80s who made the heavy, thick and natural brows fashionable.
“Unfortunately, in the ’90s we reverted back to the over-tweezed style, which many didn’t recover from, and as a result, they have to use a pencil to fill in the gaps in their over-plucked eyebrows. Luckily, the advance in beauty technology has finally brought us products that can redefine the brows with tint, which lasts a lot longer than a brow pencil.”
Did You Know?
The ancient Egyptians used various minerals to enhance their eyebrows to give them more colour and definition. Nowadays we have microblading for brows, a form of semi-permanent makeup that is ‘drawn’ stroke by stroke by scratching pigment into the skin with a tiny blade made of needles. The procedure gives the eyebrows definition and shape, especially welcome by those who have lost their brow hair, for example through alopecia or perhaps as a side effect of cancer treatment.
“Brows don’t have to be thick and dark, or sharply outlined to follow any particular trend,” Bella reassures. During a consultation, Bella and her team will measure and draw your chosen brow shape, and work with you to achieve the desired brows, even if it is just filling in a few hairs where the brows are sparse.
If you do not want to take the plunge and have microblading, why not try the Bella Brows first? Bella says: “The popular highly defined brows can be achieved by mapping and measuring your ideal brow shape, then tinting the hair to the desired shade, waxing the surplus hair and tweezing any stray ones and trimming the length. All fairly painless, and a great way of trying out brow styling before anything more permanent.”
