A new study by plastic surgeons seeking the perfect female brow found that women want their eyebrows to be lower, flatter and less arched. A woman’s ideal eyebrow has been migrating lower and lower to the eyes. A couple of theories that support this new findings are that women are subconsciously opting for a more masculine-looking brow. Another theory could also be that a fuller, lower lying brow is more natural and youthful. The days of the high arches and thin lines are long gone!
So what is the reason for this? Fluid gender dynamics, of course! According to Mark Soldin, a spokesman for the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons, who told the Independent:
“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 favouring a masculine brow.”
Subconscious gender flux or not, the fuller brow has been in the Hollywood circuit for some time now worn by young actresses like Emma Watson and Camilla Belle. Some women are even turning to hair transplant surgery to fill in their overplucked brows.
As I mentioned in my previous blog http://portlandschoolofthreading.com/threading-for-men-by-men-2/, few facial features are as expressive as the eyebrows. They can express wide-ranging, subtle emotions even when the rest of the face remains neutral. When perched they look surprised, when lowered they indicate fatigue, and when puckered together, they signal anger. Given their extreme importance in facial aesthetics and emotional expression, it is not surprising that women have sought ways to change the appearance of their eyebrows to better project youth, beauty and energy.
