#Neverforget Trend Edition: Thin Eyebrows Of The 90s Via Rihanna’s New Cover Story


Honestly: when I was 13, I wanted woman eyebrows, so I took to my face with my mum’s Venus razor, carefully removing what is now the most valuable commodity in the beauty world, until all but a single row of hairs danced across my forehead. To this day I still struggle with brow prosperity, and I have been in an on-again-off-again relationship with “growing them out.” Not for much longer, maybe, because Rihanna is making us #neverforget the thin eyebrow trend of the 90s, via her new Vogue cover. While I definitely am *triggered* by it, I am also kind of vibing my very own tadpole brows.

In honour of the trend’s possible return, and my coming to terms with shit eyebrows, here are some of the best thin bois from the past:

Gwen Stefani

  Drew Barrymore


  Beyoncé, yes Beyoncé

  Angelina Jolie

  Christina Aguilera, for the love of God

  Nicole Richie

  Kate Moss

  Pamela Anderson


  Alicia Keys

 And even our Kimmy K had pencil-thin brows once upon a time
