Frida Kahlo, Brooke Shields, and Cara Delevingne are three women who are famous for their craft, specific styles, and a pair of distinct features: eyebrows.

Women’s eyebrows come in different colors, sizes, and thickness; some are sparse, some are prominent.

Eyebrows, which shape and enhance the features of the face, are often treated like they’re supposed to look like twins when they don’t have to be—and there’s beauty in that.

Through the years, they have been plucked, bleached, lined, shaved, threaded, and brushed in so many different ways, that it’s no wonder how women have built up such a high tolerance for pain.

In the early 2000s, eyebrows were plucked pencil-thin until later in the decade when natural-looking brows emerged. The trends changed faster and became more diverse in 2014 when arches were accessorized before the transition to perfect, on-fleek Instagram eyebrows. In the past three years, the trends shifted back to bold and extravagant styles to serve a powerful look.

The good news is that with the advent of products dedicated to brows, anyone can now fill them in and look better than ever. And if you can’t do it yourself, there are a lot of professional brow services out there who can wax, tweeze, thread, and tint them for you.

Trends may come and go, but finding the right shape and style that you’re comfortable with will also enhance your distinct facial features.
