'Squiggle Brows' Are the Questionable New Beauty Trend We Didn't Know We Wanted | 22 Words

People have been known to do a lot of strange things with those forehead caterpillars we call eyebrows.

If you were a girl growing up in the early 2000s, you probably plucked them to within a millimeter of their existence because that was the trend of the time.

Now, in 2017, you're most likely desperately trying to fill them in to make them look plump and proud.

There's a new eyebrow trend in town, though, and it's about to sweep the nation...or at least your Instagram feed.

Squiggle brows are here. And man, are they bizarre.

Feathered Brows

Instagram has proven a fantastic experimentation platform for eyebrow artists of all kinds. For a second there, we thought feathered brows were the way of the future.

Barbed Wire Brows

But then came barbed wire brows. These crazy caterpillars are definitely a look.

Floral Brows

If you weren't all that into barbed wire brows, you could go delicate with floral brows like these. This look probably isn't great for everyday living, though, especially if you're allergic to pollen.

Carved Brows

Carved brows are a harsher look that seems to say, "Hey! You! Over there! Yes, you! Look at my eyebrows! Look at them! Look at their shape! They are beautiful!"

Rainbow Brows

We can all agree that more things should be rainbow-colored. Eyebrows are one of those things.

Bling Brows

Now this is a statement. Bling brows seem excessive, but, just wait for it...

We are now introducing Squiggle Brows!

When we said "squiggle brows," you probably instantly got an image in your head. Were you right? We bet you were right.
