High brow

The pendulum has swung from skinny eyebrows (think “Charlie’s Angels”, circa 1976)  to the more natural look I was born with (me, circa 1974).

I fought with my eyebrows for years, trying to fashion them into the pencil-thin arches the cover girls wore.

I never quite got there.

I stopped short of the pencil thin lines due to, well, pain, and the the time it took me at home to achieve it.

Man, am I glad.

Yesterday, I opened my mailbox to find Priyanka Chopra gracing the cover of “Vogue” with thick, dramatic, beautiful eyebrows.

My friends who were able to coax their brows into the thin lines I so prized now rely on their eyebrow pencil for definition.

Sadly, eyebrows grow sparse with age.

It’s fun, cool and hip to follow fashion trends and to feel up to date with the latest look.

Who didn’t want Farah’s feathered hairstyle or Jaclyn’s slim, defined brows?

But now, I want Priyanka’s gorgeous, natural look.

If only I had put the tweezers down, sooner.
