Recession-era brow

With the financial crisis looking more and more grim day by day, it’s understandable that all those extras we once spent on are no longer on our “to do list”. And, eyebrow grooming is one of them. It’s fuller, bushier, and, well, totally eighties. The thick “Brooke Shields-esque” brow is a lot easier to maintain than those thinner varieties, making trips to waxers or pluckers less frequent.

Only in 2010, the trend was about going completely brow-less. Models and stylists were bleaching or shaving eyebrows (see this cover).The idea was that having no eyebrows was a way to express oneself through edge looks without buying a product.
