Eyebrows have recently experienced a revolution, which can mainly be attributed to model Cara Delevingne, who made bushy brows chic, and Kim Kardashian who made HD brows mainstream. However, one brow trend that hasn't caught on is the unibrow. Although, Sophia is working tirelessly to make the monobrow happen.
he young model's unique look was the result of a happy mistake. Bored of continuously filling in her brows, Sophia decided to tint them to save herself the effort. But, unintentionally, she turned them black. "My brother ran into the bathroom and first started laughing, then kept telling me it actually looked pretty cool," Sophia recalls. Rather than be mortified by her mistake, Sophia embraced it and has tinted her naturally blond brows black ever since.
But, her unique look has attracted a lot of unwanted attention from trolls online.
But, Sophia doesn't care about the haters. "I personally think my face looks better this way," she told Harper’s Bazaar. "Others disagree, and that’s totally cool. I am not trying to get anyone on the unibrow bandwagon."
"I want to be able to teach people that just because others say it's ugly or it is unattractive, doesn't mean they're right. I like the way I look and I'm not going to let someone sitting behind a computer pressure me into changing," says Sophia.
"I look at [my unibrow] like it’s winged eyeliner or red lipstick. In five years I might look back and think, 'that was a cool phase!' But until people start to accept others for this specific feature on their face, I won’t feel ready to move on from it."

I don't find unibrows attractive personally but it's her face and she can do what she wants. And I do understand the meaning behind it. It's not just about eyebrows, she wants everyone to feel confident in themselves, no matter what society says is (or isn't) attractive, and that's something I can support.
If someone else has a physical trait you think is unattractive, who cares? You're entitled to your opinions on beauty but why does that mean you HAVE to voice it and put others down? Bullying someone because of how they look is unacceptable and demonstrates a lack of self-control and empathy for others.
The unibrow is the subject of the conversation so you will have those who don't like it and it's their right to voice it. Most especially since that's the Damn question.
@Charleslvajr Obviously my statement about opinion sharing isn't referring to this question. Read my whole response, it's about in general people who feel like they have the right to bully others for how they look. I already said you have the right to your opinion, that doesn't mean you have to tell someone with a unibrow that they are ugly and disgusting. That's just rude and hateful.
I did. The point of the post is to collect opinions, good or bad.
What happens is real life has no bearing on the inquiry is my point.
@Charleslvajr Oh my gosh, I'm not talking about this question! Lmao My response is specifically referring to those who actively bully others and put them down for how they look when their opinion WASN'T ASKED FOR.
In personal interactions, I agree with you. I hate bullies of all stripes and I deal with those assholes where I find them.
@Charleslvajr Right, that's what I was referring to. :)
I'm not trying to counter you just keeping focus, we're on the same side. Cheers.
