Eyebrows are one of those features a lot of people don’t think about despite its major impact on your overall look. The fact is humans are very dependent on their looks. Sure, inner beauty and personality play a vital role too, but the fact that a book sells by its cover is still very relevant.
That is what makes facial features like eyebrows so important—eyebrows, eyelashes, lips, jawline—all form your personal look. And anybody who’s obsessed with eye-brows knows they are the star of your face.
Now there are a lot of things you can do to improve your brow game. One very trending and popular method at the moment is microblading.
Microblading is essentially pigmenting your eyebrows with a semi-permanent tattoo through very tiny needles. The pigment gets down into the skin making your eyebrows appear thick and lush.
However, not just anyone can perform microblading. There is no room for error so make sure your microblading stylist has taken professional microblading classes and is current on all the procedures.
It’s not the kind of oops you want on your face—trust me.
Now that technology has made anything and everything possible, brows won’t get left behind. Yay! From microblading to hand-drawn brows, changing your eyebrows for the better is now possible.

Here are five facts about eyebrows that will help you rock your eyebrow game. Knowledge is power guys!
Yes, Eyebrows CAN have Cowlicks
We all thought that this was in our head and that our eyebrows were just stubborn. But brows can very much have cowlicks just like the ones on our head.
People with curly or wavy hair have a bigger chance of falling prey to eyebrow cowlicks. But that doesn’t mean straight hair people can’t get them too—it can happen to anyone.
If you are prone to cowlicks, trim them in the same direction they are growing. Notice the pattern and take the necessary steps to follow along the same path.
Grows Faster in Summer
Your eyebrows grow faster in warm weather. Why? Well, all of our hair grows faster when we are more active. Summer typically means the weather is nice so people are out more being active.
This activity increases the blood flow and nutrients to our hair making it grow faster. Pretty neat, huh?
On the other hand, hair growth plummets in the winter. The cold weather keeps us inside rather than sweating it out.
Gives You Clearer Vision
Remember that story? One in which says early men and women used to have tails on their behinds because we evolved from apes? The fact that the tail fell off and was no longer a part of our body was because it was of no use to us.
Each and every body part exists for a reason, and this includes your eyebrows. Your brow bone and eyebrows are there to protect your eyes from any kind of moisture so you can see better.
Remember the Mona Lisa?
When you read the words “Mona Lisa,” the Leonardo Da Vinci masterpiece probably just popped in your head. Her strangely alluring expression, aesthetic, and dominant face that doesn’t look like she’s smiling, but she is…
Well, there’s one more thing to notice—the fact that she doesn’t have eyebrows. You probably knew this already, or never really thought about it.
Every year, millions of tourists and art critics travel far distances to look at it but don’t notice that she doesn’t have eyebrows. It’s probably why the piece gives off such an eerie vibe.
Rumor has it that Mona Lisa’s eyebrows were removed unintentionally while the painting was being cleaned or have faded over time.
Eyebrows Don’t Change Your Face
… Or eye shape, for that matter.
Eyebrows give expression to our face. Think about an emoji. How do you decide whether it is happy or sad?
Through the eyebrows!
Eyebrows are here to give you expressions, and they don’t play any part in changing the shape of your eyes, they enhance them.
So the next time someone tells you that a person’s eyes or smile cast the first expression, point towards your eyebrows and rest your case!
