Would You Embrace the Browless Trend?

Forget low-brow beauty. No-brow beauty could be the next big thing. Barely-there eyebrows are a reemerging trend. "Think of those looming images of Queen Elizabeth," noted makeup artist Pat McGrath told the New York Times.

McGrath, who was responsible for the no-brow look at the latest Balenciaga show and the light on the brows look at Prada, noted that perhaps it has something to do with the current financial state of the world. "The economic troubles we are facing now open people up to be more daring and willing to don cutting-edge looks," she explained.

Even the latest Givenchy print ad features the look, and it appears to be trickling down to the mainstream. "It’s unifying," fashion consultant Lauren Boyle told the newspaper. "There is an asexual element to no eyebrows. . . It’s an exercise in modernity." I can't help but be reminded of David Bowie's Aladdin Sane years and, of course, '90s model Kristen McMenamy. What about you? Would you go for the browless look, or do you prefer to keep yours just the way they are?

No. Not that it makes a difference, my brows are so blonde they are barely there, especially if I don't dye my hair blonde and keep it it's natural super dark blonde/light brown.

I already have too thin brows... I'll keep what will grow, maybe someday they will decide to come back. I don't even over tweeze.

I knew a dance coach who shaved hers off and drew them in... it's just not attractive... It's just silly for reality... Okay for the runway...especially if it's just heavy foundation to hid them.

I wouldn't do it. I just started using a darkening gel on mine and the result was shocking. I didn't realize how much your eyebrows add to your face. And that woman above looks freaky and very very old at first glance. You know your eyebrows lighten with age.

Horrible--it destroys the lines of your face. I once overbleached my brows on accident and it looked to me as if my face had gotten mushy. I have rather high cheekbones and a thin face so that's not easily done. Skip this trend!

I actually wish I had more eyebrow hair, not none at all.

Please no, I'm all for fashion but I really hope this doesn't become a trend.

They sorta serve a purpose- so I don't really think people should be getting rid of them..

Mine are really blond and I had them died darker for years. The past few years I quit so in certain lighting or in some pictures I look like I have none. But my hair is blond too so it doesn't look so out of place. I would never get rid of them though.

Hell no! This guy I knew once shaved his off for a dare, and ended up being laughed at for weeks.

I said no, because I wouldn't shave my brows as part of a ''trend''--though to be honest, I have donned the no-brow look in my batcave days.

With my dark skin and hair, no way, but I could see it for people who look like the model above.

I would rather keep mine well maintained than just... gone. Mine think they're supposed to be disgustingly thick, but I'd rather work on my eyebrows every day than shave them right off! And I agree, how are you supposed to show surprise or skepticism without eyebrows?!

By the way, that woman in the pic above looks like the ghost of Kim Bassinger. I didn't even know she died!

Everyone knows a person with no brows gets puzzled looks and stares and whispers of "What the heck happened to their brows?? What are they thinking??" This might fly on the runway but not in real life. And I thought that thicker brows were supposed to be in? Now suddenly it's "no brows"?
