Hold on to your eyebrows – an old trend could make a comeback.
Rihanna appears in the coveted September issue of British Vogue, making her the first woman to see the color in the magazine's September cover.
This is amazing news, apart from one thing: The photo shoot shows the pop star, who has become a business mogul, with pencil-thin, drawn eyebrows as a tribute to The 1
Since the style of the '90s, which brought us the return of slip dresses, ripped velvet and mom jeans, brow experts have been dreading this day.
Usually we're all out to emulate our favorite celebrity trends, but after we've survived the pencil-thin plucking for the first time, we're a bit cautious.
Does anyone else have the effects of ransacking?
Luckily, most people seem to be averse to the idea of a pencil-thin reboot.
Bushy, natural eyebrows have become fashionable in recent years and have popularized cosmetic procedures such as microblading, in which small incisions are made in the skin with semi-permanent pigments to mimic hair and the eyebrows look even fuller.
Some of those who use the method compensate for the excesses in their youth, according to brewing expert Taryn Dean, owner and operator of Taryn Brows in New York City.
"So many customers are looking for products that help them fill their eyebrows because they never knew they would rush," said Dean TODAY Style. "I'd say a good number of our customers who come in have heavily buffed their eyebrows, maybe 30 or 40 percent."
Dean added that over-plucking can lead to hair follicle damage or even "follicle death," which means it can take a long time for hair to grow back
"Our customers are devastated when they find that their hair follicles are dead," she said. "People focus on the eyebrows they see in magazines and at the time they say, 'I want my eyebrows to look like this,' and they do not realize the damage they can cause. "
According to Dean, eyebrows have a longer growth cycle than other body hair, so it can take a long time to reverse damaged damage.
Dean says many of her clients will see her grow again after eight or nine months, but if there is no growth after one year, follicles are declared dead and then she recommends microblading.
Ramon Padilla, owner of the EverTrue Microblading Salon In Chicago and New York City, he said he also sees many customers whose eyebrows are no longer able to cope.
"We have quite a few customers in the nineties who rush, about 25 or 30 percent of the people who come in." "Padilla has told TODAY Style." Most of them come in with uneven brows or missing tails or even without eyebrows. "
Padilla complements The different brow shapes look different in each person, so it may not fit in with a trend.
"I think we need to go back to what looks good, not for a special occasion "It's shocking," he said, "for some facial types, such as older clients or women with smaller facial features, a thin eyebrow can be very elegant, it only varies, which looks good from person to person."
