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:
Beyoncé, yes Beyoncé
Christina Aguilera, for the love of God
And even our Kimmy K had pencil-thin brows once upon a time
