And you thought Cara Delevingne's brows were bold...
By now, you know that the bold brow trend is here to stay. (And we're totally okay saying "see ya" to the pencil-thin brows of the '90s.) There are extreme versions such as wavy brows, "McDonald's" brows, feathered brows, and even braided brows. But with all the experimentation, somehow growing hair between your brows is still taboo. Welp, that's news to Sophia Hadjipanteli, who is not about to get rid of her luscious unibrow just to fit in. The Insta-famous model posts plenty of selfies, and her bio clearly states her allegiance: #UnibrowMovement."
Hadjipanteli has provoked plenty of trolls for not conforming to beauty norms—shocker—and she has some words for the people who feel the need to point out her unibrow as if she doesn't already know it's there. "I wear makeup because it is fun," she wrote in one post. "I have a unibrow because it is a preference. AT THE END OF THE DAY just do you cuz imma be doing me whether you like it or not."
I wear makeup because it is fun. I have a unibrow because it is a preference. I wear makeup and have a unibrow because it is what I like. Don't put me in a bubble. Just because I embrace one natural part of me doesn't mean I'm a hypocrite for wanting to enhance other parts of who I am. I thought I would just put this out there just as a blanket statement. I'm who I am because I want to be this way. When you judge others for wearing makeup, dying their hair, altering parts of their body or inner self, JUST BECAUSE YOU DON'T, makes you just as toxic as a lot of societal norms and pressures we are constantly faced with. AT THE END OF THE DAY just do you cuz imma be doing me whether you like it or not.
Yep, you won't find this badass beauty hiding her God-given assets—not only does she not hide them, she accentuates them. Hadjipanteli tints them black and conditions them with castor oil nightly, she told Harper's Bazaar. (Here's how to use castor oil for thicker hair, brows, and lashes.) We love rooting for women (models or otherwise) who show off their so-called "flaws." (See Winnie Harlow celebrating her vitiligo.)
