Bushy (and Bedazzled) Brows Back in Style: Hot or Not?

For years, women have been expected to have their eyebrows regularly plucked and groomed. But now, the natural look seems to be back in style. Fashion insiders really don't expect women to start walking around with "bedazzled" brows, the way they did earlier this month at Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2012 show. But you may start seeing fuller brows instead of thinner, wispier lines.



"Eyebrows frame the face, frame the eyes," Ramy Gafni, makeup artist and owner of New York City’s Ramy Spa, told TODAY.com. "Fashion is always trying to keep things new and interesting and now people are saying that the frame can be interesting too, hence the sparkles and bold colors seen in recent shows. These trends are meant to trickle down in a diluted form to the public. No one is expecting the woman-on-the-street to go to work with black sparkly eyebrows, but to translate that look to a full, well groomed eyebrow."

Plus, bushy brows come with a couple of bonuses: One, they can make you look younger, and two, they save money. In fact, Gafni says the "trend" may simply be a result of the economy. "Customers who once came in every three weeks are now coming in every other month and that leads to a bushier eyebrow," he told "TODAY." Do you like the bushy brow look? Or do you prefer the plucked-to-perfection brow style?

    I don't know about bedazzled or monobrows, but closer to natural always looks better to me. Unnatural arches and shapes just detract from a woman's beauty in my ho.

    As I got older my hair got darker but my eyebrows stayed pale blonde, so they look basically non-existant. They're also totally asymmetrical so I can't get them dyed. I have to fill them in every morning because my "natural" look doesn't look natural. But I don't mind, I think strong brows make everybody more attractive.

    Meh...
    I don't like when it's TOO bushy.. I mean if you just remove the hair that's not in the right place, and make the eyebrows look good, that's okay.
    I don't like eyebrows that are too thin either... Like people who have them tattooed or made with a pen and it doesn't look natural..
    I like eyebrows that look natural, whether they're waxed/plucked/wtv or not!

    Call me conceited, but I think I have fantastic eyebrows ^_^. Not Lilly Collins (Mirror, Mirror) grossly ginormous, but full and dark, and I've always kept them that way. I do a little minor upkeep around the edges to keep a nice shape, but have always kept a fairly natural, full look.

    Not so much bedazzled but eyebrows look infinitely better lightly maintained instead of highly refined

    I just got mine waxed today. If I don't have it done, it's really not pretty.

    Brows should be lightly plucked, kept well groomed and allowed to have natural arches. They enhance your eyes. No wild, furry brows, whether in uni or bi forms. They make anybody look like a cave person.

    My own preference leans toward natural over pencil-thin, tattooed, painted-on or bedazzled eyebrows. But, male or female, if you look like a Mentat from Dune, or have ever been mistaken for a Sasquatch, you might want to trim the shrubbery.
