The '90s Hip-Hop Beauty Trend That Is Big on Instagram
Eyebrows have become our generation's hottest facial feature, and as a result, they're subjected to piercing, rainbow tinting, and even wigs. Now, a decades-old trend has resurfaced on Instagram, and it's the ultimate in brow modification — eyebrow slits. While most of us seek to amp up our arches via powders and pencils, this trend calls for taking a razor (we'd advise using a straight edge for this) and shaving breaks into the brow.
You may remember seeing this look on your favorite rappers of yesteryear (including Bow Wow). The history of this trend is uncertain, but it's possible that slits are meant to mimic a scar, making the wearer look tough. You can shave as few as one, or you can create as many slits as your brows have space for. While we're too nervous to try the trend — sometimes brows don't grow back — we can't deny that it looks pretty cool. Read on to see more examples of eyebrow slits!
