We’ve always seen eyebrows being the center of attraction. Sometimes it has also become the victim of all sorts of creative and bizarre trends all these years. Right from all those bushy eyebrows to the thin ones or the recent trend of squiggly eyebrows to feather brows, beauty bloggers and magazines have never been short of ideas. They’ve always come up with either amazing or weird ideas about how you should be doing with those furry things on your face.
And these beauty bloggers have set the trend of maintenance and trimming your brows. But one thing they never instruct you to do is let your brows meet so they pluck it, thereby forming the much-lamented unibrow. However, a Greek model and blogger refuse to pluck that unibrow and according to her it’s nothing to be ashamed of and it’s your decision to pluck them or keep them.
Greek Cypriot student and model Sophia Hadjipanteli dyes her unibrow black to emphasize it more even though she’s naturally a blonde. This Greek model has more than 70k followers on Instagram and a lot of people are subscribing to her #UnibrowMovement. She refuses to pluck it and chose to keep it growing.
Sophia Hadjipanteli says that she knows that not everyone finds her attractive and appreciates her looks but she’s not concerned what people think of her. She said “I personally think my face looks better this way,” she said. “Others disagree, and that’s totally cool.”
Sophia wrote on her Instagram “I have a unibrow because it is a preference. “I’m who I am because I want to be this way.”
“When you judge others for wearing makeup, dying their hair, altering parts of their body or inner self, JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T, makes you just as toxic as a lot of societal norms and pressures we are constantly faced with. AT THE END OF THE DAY just do you cuz imma be doing me whether you like it or not.”
This Greek model recently posted a picture of her as the famous Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo who is also known for her striking unibrow, after she got a lot of requests from her fans to dress up like the iconic artist.
She said “I have always loved her and thought she was so beautiful. After doing that, I feel like I have labeled myself as someone who is embracing being myself and isn’t necessarily being natural, but instead just doing what I want.”
Maybe we should follow her and ditch those tweezers. It’s time to make a new trend. Maybe we should refuse to pluck our unibrow too.
