Squiggle Brows Are Officially The Instagram Eyebrow Trend No One Needed
Can we not.
If you're starting to feel that back to school vibe creeping up and are wondering just how to change up your look ready for September, we would like to personally suggest that you absolutely do not try the squiggle brow trend that keeps popping up all over Instagram.
Get a lob, pierce both your nipples for all we care, but please, under absolutely no circumstance pluck your eyebrows into a wiggly shape.
Watch! Celeb eyebrow transformations that prove there's hope for us all...
On the surface it may seem like a cute and whimsical trend, but we can't help thinking that when you look back at your school picture in 10 years time, you will feel exactly how we do about the fact that the 00s made it seem acceptable to pluck those brows until they were a single line of hair. And don't even get us started on Blazin' Squad making it seem cool to shave a line through your eyebrow.
(FYI we're still growing our brows out now and in retrospect, the whole shaved line scenario made everyone look like they were involved in a singeing *incident* with a pair of rogue hair straighteners.)
Luckily you absolutely DO NOT have to wax or pluck into a squiggle to live this look for reals anyway. And, if you do for some reason feel the need to try this trend, then you can at least achieve the waved shape by styling with the help of a gel eyeliner or strong hold brow gel.
It's certainly a pretty ~extra~ look, but perhaps also one that might just get you detention on your first day back.
What do you reckon - big trend or majorly tragic? Let us know with a tweet to @MTVUK.
