11 of the Weirdest Eyebrow Trends of 2017

By  | 

We love a good beauty trend and are usually quick to try them out on ourselves (or call them out for being problematic). Every year brings us a new slew of makeup, fashion and hair trends that will probably be seen on everyone. We mean, who WASN’T wearing a long-sleeved flannel shirt tied around their waist last year?

One makeup trend that emerged as the clear winner last year is the importance of having good eyebrows. Eyebrows have reigned supreme for the past two years and we honestly can’t get enough of them. Learning how to shape and groom them has become a true talent, but, apparently, people are getting a little ~bored~ with their brows and have started doing some seriously strange things to the hair over their eyes.

We’re no strangers to weird beauty trends, but these brow trends (or attempts at making trends) are making us question pretty much everything. When squiggle brows first appeared on our Instagram feeds, it was all fun and games, but this trend has evolved and is getting weirder by the second. We went through alllllll the #hashtags on the ‘gram to find the weirdest, most confusing and possibly Photoshopped eyebrow trends of 2017. Would you ever try these out?

1. The Squiggle Brow

We have to admit, she looks totally fierce. But still — WHY?!?!

2. The Braided Brow

Honestly, this seems like too much effort:

Wavy Brows? Normal Brows? HOW ABOUT BRAIDED BROWS!? 🙌 . Keep in mind this is just for fun! . Idea credit goes to @erosmua I wasn't able to figure out the photoshop so why not recreate it!? Lol ♥️ Used: @anastasiabeverlyhills Dip Brow Pomade in Chocolate @lagirlcosmetics Pro-Conceal Concealer in Natural @bebellacosmetics Bent Liner Brush 134 @elfcosmetics Spoolie Brush Song – Martin Garrix – There for you (remix) #braidedbrows #wavybrows #normalbrows #braidbrows #videotutorial #abhjunkies #anastasiabeverlyhills #anastaciabrows #hypnaughtypower #hypnaughtymakweup #wakeupandmakeup #carvedbrows #browroutine #makegirlz #make4glam #wakeup2slay #discovervideos #shimycatsmua #maryhadalittleglam #xmakeuptutsx #makeuptutorialsx0x #fakeupfix #fakeupfix #makeupfanatic1 #makeupdolls #undiscovered_muas #discovervideos #makeupartistworldwide #hudabeauty #peachyqueenblog

3. The Feather Brow

This guru’s the creator of the trend and she even says that it’s a joke!

4. The Barbed Wire Brow

How did she get the actual eyebrow hairs to cooperate??

5. The Rainbow Brow

We can maybe get behind this trend if it’s for festivals and concerts ONLY.

I'm not the best at writing out my thoughts, but…Every year, Pride is a reminder of how it was started, as a powerful protest! It reminds me of how much people have sacrificed to get us where we are today, and also how much further we have to go, especially with visibility for trans people & POC. I stand with you with #Pride, my LGBTQIA+ family, I love you so much ❤️💛💚💙💜🖤 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• *I used @katvondbeauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Shades Outlaw, A-Go-Go, Dreamer, Echo mixed with Dreamer, Roxy, + @danessa_myricks Primary Yellow Colour Fix to create this @thealexbox inspired look* @sephora @sephoracanada

6. The Glitter Brow

This is definitely the most tame and functional trend, and we’re totally on board with a little sparkle.

7. The Dragon Brow

Guess this is what happens when you have Game of Thrones withdrawal.

☰DRAGON BROW☰ I don't know why my original caption disappeared but here's a second go 🤞 This is a weird brow look I did today. The eyelashes are by @elfcosmetics and they were a complete disaster – I definitely won't be purchasing these again but I was too lazy to change them today 😂I was inspired to do another fun, weird brow look after being inspired by the recent creations of 😙 ***If you don't like this look, that's totally fine. It was a fun artsy-fartsy look so don't get your panties in a wad 😂 I do delete spam, rude, or useless comments in order to promote good conversation. Only good vibes are welcome here ✌ #dragonbrows #eotd #eyeoftheday #eyemakeup #eye #messy #featherbrows #eyebrows #beautytrends #cosmetics #fashion #fashionphotography #makeupartist #mua #glossyeyes #green #bblogger #makeupmafia #slave2beauty #lotd #motd #instamakeup #instabeauty #instaglam #glam #makeupporn #makeupbyme #colourpop #ilovemakeup #love

8. Brow Carving

So you literally just outline your brows? Okayyy…

9. The Ponytail Brow

This HAS to be Photoshopped… right?

10. The McDonald’s Brow.

Although we’re 99.99% certain that this is a joke, there’s over FIVE THOUSAND posts with the #mcdonaldsbrows hashtag, so people are definitely trying it out.

11. The Triple Brow

Because apparently having two eyebrows isn’t enough anymore.
