British supermodel Agyness Deyn is my pick for Star Brows of the Week. Obviously I like bleached hair and dark brows. Agyness, born Laura Hollins, is very unmodel-y and a little rebel-looking. The look feels liberated, with a sense of the “healthy masculine.”
My husband gave me a card for our 33rd anniversary the other day that read, “From the one who wears the pants in the family, to the one who tells him which ones to wear.” 😀
Ms. Deyn’s brows are very flat, the arch is way outside the rim of the iris, and the thickness is the same throughout the body of the brow. So what? Her brows are much darker than her hair, as well, so she appears to be breaking all the rules, right?
Here’s the deal: You cannot design everyone’s brows with a cookie-cutter method. That’s why when people ask me about “Threading,” I tell them that more important than how you remove the hair is the designer’s skill at interpreting the best look for you.
Our Star Brows feature this week has got a distinctive look that works. She has taken into consideration her “brand” as a model. She’s not just trying to have “the perfect brows.” Look at all the light around her eyes (probably a white pencil), the pale lip, the cheek contouring, and the way her hair draws attention to the center of her face.
See you at the spa!
