Rihanna just proved that razor-thin brows are back on the agenda for autumn

So on fleek.

01 Aug 2018

We've embraced the bushy, boyish brow and more recently, we've been seriously digging the bleached look (oh hey there, celebrities like Adwoa). In fact, we're even open to the idea of the squiggle brow and the tiger brow (you do you, bae). But this Autumn, it seems the biggest eyebrow shape trend is shaping up to be razor-thin, which is great news for those who had an affinity with their tweezers in their youth).

After Rihanna made her debut on the September issue of British Vogue rocking super-thin, overplucked 90s brows, it looks like we'll all be embracing our tweezers this winter.

Discussing the trend comeback, Aarti Dahiya, Assistant Trainer at Browhaus, said: "Judging from the Vogue cover, Rihanna can make both a thin and a full brow look flattering. Just like many other trends from the 00s, thin brows may be looking to make a comeback. However, for an everyday look, thin brows can age you and once you go thin, your brow hairs may never grow back. Think very carefully before thinning your brows out as brow hairs are extremely precious."

However, brow artist, Suman, isn't convinced about the thin brow comeback, saying: “Are thin brows coming back into style? I hope not! Whilst this is not a look I would recommend to my clients, it certainly does suit Rhianna’s unique style and celebrity status. These brows are a particularly daring look – but they scream personality, and if anyone can pull them off, it’s RiRi! The whole look is incredibly editorial and absolutely fantastic for the front cover of Vogue, but I can’t see my clients – or the British/worldwide public taking this as a trend and asking me to replicate.

"The majority of my clients are coming to me to reverse the effect of thin and over-plucked eyebrows from their youth - wanting natural, thick and fluffy ones. So although an incredible editorial look, I can’t see this transcending into my microblading chair as a common request.”
