Your Eyebrows Tell A Fascinating Story About Who You Are

If you’re a curious person, you’ve probably spent a good deal of time wondering about why you have eyebrows. Why is it, for example, that you have these two patches of hair between your eyeballs and your forehead, but not anywhere else? 

As with everything else that has to do with our biology, it all comes down to evolution. Researchers still aren’t entirely sure why humans have such pronounced eyebrows, but they think that it has something to do with the way we communicate. 

As a species that relies on social interaction more than any other, eyebrows are a tool that helps us show other people how we feel. When we raise an eyebrow out of curiosity or move them both when we’re shocked, it makes the emotion that we feel much more evident to those around us, helping our social impact. 

In the modern world, beautiful eyebrows continue to tell a story about who we are. Our peers judge our feelings – and our looks – primarily based on how our eyebrows appear. 

The importance of eyebrows isn’t lost on the beauty industry. Techniques such as eyebrow threading have seen an explosion in popularity over recent years. People want to give their eyebrows a particular look because it SAYS something about who they are underneath. 

Here’s what your eyebrow shape says about the person you are.

Arched eyebrows are those that rise slowly, to a point, and then curl back around the corner of the eye. For many, this shape is indicative of being in control or a position of power. Having that pointed shape suggests that you’re in command and know precisely what you want from life. You’re okay with taking charge when the situation demands it. 

Wide Gap Eyebrows

Some people have a large gap between their eyebrows, either naturally, or because of plucking. This style is an interesting one. It suggests that you have higher anxiety levels than other people, and you’re worried about what they think of you. Deep down, you fear that they will judge you negatively. Of course, this trait isn’t a bad thing – it just shows that you care – a positive aspect of your personality. 

Super Skinny Brows

Some women have super skinny brows – just a thin line of hair that loops over their eyes like a crescent moon. This style is a sign that you’re trying to show the world that you’re a delicate and innocent person. You prefer to avoid conflict where possible and are always a peacemaker in social situations. It is in your nature.

Thick brows are the opposite of the super skinny variety. Here you’re trying to go as bushy as possible. You might not even pluck at all. 

Thick brows suggest that you’re a bit of a free spirit at heart. More often than not, you’ll allow your body hair to grow wild, as nature intended. You’re much less concerned about the way that the average person perceives you and prefer to roll with the hand biology dealt you.
