THE IDEAL EYEBROW – Now Getting Lower and Flatter

According to a newly published study in the Clinical Plastic Surgery Journal, the arched brow is becoming a thing of the past.

Actually, the ideal eyebrow has been moving lower and flatter for the past 60 years, giving women a more masculine look.

In analyzing the brows of models and women in fashion magazines from 1946 onward, a recent study at the University of Southern California concluded similarly: “Not only have eyebrows gotten progressively fuller, but the peak of them has moved further from the nose; in other words, brows are getting flatter.”

Why such a changed fashion statement? Mark Soldin, a spokesperson for the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons, explains it this way:

Upward curvature of the eyebrows was considered to be an attractive feminine feature in the past. We are finding that more and more women are looking for a flatter, straighter, more masculine look. I think it has to do with the increasing equality of the sexes. Women are subconsciously favoring a masculine brow.
