A new decade is here, and for many of us, it's time for a new look. Brow shapes have certainly come a long way since the plucked-thin days of past decades, and today's modern looks are fuller, elegant, and flattering for all kinds of faces. So if you've yet to update your brows for 2020 and beyond, there's no better time than now to do it. With the right brows enhancing your unique look, you can truly make the '20s your decade!
Here are three of the hottest brow styles that are projected to stay fashionable in the coming years:
The Shadow Brow
You probably haven't seen the "shadow brow" everywhere yet, but that's because it's still on the new side. This modern technique uses fading (similar to a faded buzzed haircut) along the edges of the brow in order to create 3D dimension. This style also helps to draw focus to the center of the brow, which in turn draws focus to your eyes. While the brow is still sculpted into an elegant brow or other desired shape, it appears more natural-looking thanks to the fading. This is a great choice for people who want to stay modern and on-trend but don't like the look of hard edges or overly-sculpted brows.
The Chalamet Brow
Even if you've never heard of the "Chalamet" brow before, there's a good chance you've probably seen it. This classy brow style is quickly growing in popularity, largely thanks to its appeal for both men and women. This brow is very natural-looking and is often thicker than other styles, with gently rounded edges and often mild shadowing on either side. The brow gets its name from actor Timothy Chalamet and is indeed modeled after his thick eyebrows, although they can easily be styles for a variety of eye shapes.
The Natural Brow
Even with all the sculpting seen throughout the 2000s, 2010s, and most of the 20th century, the natural brow has made a pretty big comeback. After all, your naturally-growing brows already complement your face and help to create balance and beautiful symmetry. That said, "natural brows" don't necessarily refer to brows that are entirely untouched. Instead, the goal here is to create a natural-looking, elegant brow based on your existing features. A good brow technician will focus on accentuating your natural arches and keeping any hair removal from looking too superficially groomed.
The natural brow is a great option for laid back people who want to explore other down-to-earth areas of their life. Natural brows are also extremely trend-enduring, and regardless of changing shapes and styles they have, and will always remain, relevant and timeless.
Which Brow Style is Right For You?
Not sure which brow style is the right choice for your new decade? Don't be afraid to ask for a professional opinion. Experienced brow technicians have seen it all, and good ones are able to adapt different styles to complement your natural brow curves. It's also important to consider how much time and maintenance you are willing to put in to your new brows. Some styles (like the shadow brow) require a bit more upkeep, but they can look absolutely exquisite. For others, a neatly groomed natural brow is a low maintenance, surefire way to go.
