Eyebrows: A History
The recognition of an eyebrow’s worth did not just evolve in today’s beauty industry society. In fact, the manipulation of this key facial feature dates back to the years before Christ, with the Egyptians.
The Egyptians used ground Galena—a black mineral—sulfur and animal fat in order to create a substance called kohl, which they would use to enhance their eyebrows. Using makeup to extend or fill in the brow is no new technique.
How eyebrow design has changed through the decades:
In the 1920’s, major plucking achieved the ideal thin line of hair curving downward towards the temple.

In the 1930’s, eyebrows were tweezed to a very thin shape and desired a dramatic arch.
During the 40’s, eyebrows began to look more natural and took on more thickness compared to the decades before.
With the 70’s came a natural brow. The trend during this time gave the beginning of the brow a round shape.
The 1980’s emphasized the beauty of a natural, thick brow.
