“Halo Brows” Are The Newest Eyebrow Style To Get On Your Nerves


If you’re like me, your eyebrows are something you barely think about, beyond trimming them enough to avoid looking like New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis.

But there are a select few who instead view eyebrows as a blank canvas for their next masterpiece–no matter how insane it makes them look. The latest example of this is the “Halo Brow,” an eyebrow style that is dangerously close to becoming a trend.

Behold the Halo Brow, aka the latest reason why Instagram must be stopped.

The Halo Brow is the latest creation from 16-year-old UK-based makeup blogger Hannah Lyne, who used NYX Cosmetics’ Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade in Espresso to achieve the look.

When asked how she came up with the idea, Lyne told Popsugar, “I was having a conversation with a friend trying to come up with a new idea for a look, and all of a sudden it came to me that I should connect my brow tails. This look was influenced by fishtail brows; seeing the way my brow flicked upwards inspired the idea of just carrying the brow on until it met in the middle.”

But what’s a “Fishtail Brow”? I’m glad you asked. (That was a lie.)

When Halo Brows appeared online, some folks were instantly charmed with the look.

But plenty of people were unimpressed and weren’t shy about it.



Instagram has long been a hotbed of eyebrow art innovation. Most eyebrow tutorials focus on ways to shape, style, and even tint the eyebrow. But some eyebrow artisans prefer a more avant garde direction. Back in 2017, Hannah Lyne created another fantastical design, the “Triple Brow.”

Then there was the “Nike Brow.”

And then the “McDonalds Brow.”

And for a brief moment, people were even doing “Christmas Tree Brows.”

Now, look, we all know by now that these eyebrow innovations aren’t really meant to be used for an everyday look; they’re a fun way to express yourself creatively on social media. Most of these brow styles get their fifteen minutes of fame and quickly disappear.

But still. There’s a chance one of them could become an Official Trend. Maybe one day we’ll all be drawing Halo Brows on our faces. I’ve been kept up all night worrying over far less.
