In fashion, there has always been a tendency to look back at decades past for trends that set the style standards. From the sleek and sharp lines of the mod 1960s to the broad and bold shoulders of the 1980s, fashion has taken cues from the past to innovate the present. Hairstyles of the past have also made their way into present day culture. Those who are entrenched in the present trends will tell you that straight and sleek is the way for your hair to go. But two pop culture trendsetters gladly challenge this.
When one thinks of floral print, what images come to mind? Dainty dresses accented with pearl necklaces?

You’ve seen the tools of the trade. The much-feared tweezer, the thread of the professional eyebrow groomer, and yes, that awful vat of hellishly hot wax. There are a whole slew of beauty products catering to your desire for that thinner than thin, meticulously arched, and perfectly sleek eyebrow.
