To say eyebrows are having a moment is like saying pie is good. And if you’ve into exploring territory beyond bushy and bold, boy does fashion have some options that make Cara’s power brow look boring. From arched and angled to rings #onfleek, check out our GIF guide to brow styles by the letter.
A is for Angled
Megan Fox’s sharp face-framers are apparently the most request style at tattoo clinics.
B is for Bleached
Even Cara has tried them.
C is for Crescent Moon
Missoni looked to lunar phrases for Fall ’15 and came up with makeup’s newest WTF brow trend.
D is for Dark
It’s all about keeping it a couple shades darker than your hair color.
E is for Embellished
Best enjoyed in a time prior to cultural appropriation concerns.
F is for Flappers
The roaring ’20s were characterized by rising hemlines and thinning eyebrows.
G is for Glitter
Still the coolest trend from Spring ’14 fashion week.
H is for High Arches
Popularized by famous faces from Joan Crawford to Jack Nicholson.
I is for Ink
For women with lax routines and high pain tolerances.
J is for Jewelry
Mom will be pissed if you take too many cues from Rodarte Spring ’15.
K is for Kristen McMenamy
Fun fact: McMenamy’s modeling career only took off after she shaved her brows in the early ’90s.
L is for Lace front
Its a weave for your face.
M is for Mouse brows
Before lace fronts existed, society women used to don skins from (formerly) real live mice.
N is for New Look
Dior’s iconic New Look look in the ’50s demanded equally polished diva brows.
O is for On Fleek
A phrase which is now officially off fleek, but which made for the most popular eyebrow hashtag in history.
P is for Plucked
Basically the only trend we haven’t yet brought back from the ’90s. Let’s keep it that way.
Q is for Quantity vs Quality
An irreconcilable debate when it comes to eyebrow hairs.
R is for Razors
Put them down.
S is for Scouse brows
When you aim for Cara and end up with Anne.
T is for Tadpoles
Also known as sperm brows. We all knew someone.
U is for Unibrow
V is for Varnished
One of the easiest ways to get brilliant brows? Put lip gloss on them.
W is for Wispy
Brush them up, baby.
X is for Xtina
If you can come back from this, you can come back from anything.
Y is for Yellow
Alexander Wang screws his bleach jobs up on purpose.
Z is for Zig-zags
Shaky hands? Own it, à la Meadham Kirchhoff circa Fall 2012.
