Hairsylists, makeup artists were arch rivals in brow wars
KNIGHT RIDDER NEWSPAPERS
In the '80s and early '90s, women were having eyebrows permanently tattooed. The late makeup artist Kevin Aucoin was pasting brow stencils on models in trendy fashion shows.
In 2000 people who shaped brows took on the celebrity of, say, Hilary Swank's hairstylists or makeup artist. Stories about brow wars between the best groomers hit the pages of The Wall Street Journal.
But for all the publicity, you still see brows that need work. They are too heavy, too thin or drawn into very odd shapes.
If you get shaky with a tweezer, help is available. Sudden Change product line offers "Instant Eyebrow Shapers," paste-on stencils that painlessly remove brow hairs without tweezers in an instant. "Perfect Arch Brow stencils" are like coloring between the lines: They give you a shape to pencil in.
The products are inexpensive and available at drugstores and mass market retailers.
