Wait, did you think we’d left the weird eyebrow trends in 2017? We’re so sorry.
The trend of doing strange stuff to the hair above your eyes may have taken a brief hiatus, but it’s back, and this time around we’re getting fishy. Behold fishtail brows, the first bizarre brow trend of the new year. Basically, the look is about splitting your eyebrow into two so it looks like a fishtail – one fin-like section upwards, one left as normal, with a slight gap in between.
The look started popping up on Instagram a few days ago, but got loads of attention once it was shared by Huda Kattan. But there’s a secret to this particular trend: Most of the photos of fishtail brows are edited.
The majority of fishtail brows you’ll spot on the ‘Gram are the work of @skyzeditz, who’s been digitally altering beauty influencer’s posts to give them fishtail brows.
But here’s the thing: If a digitally created trend spreads quickly enough, people will start doing it in real life. Fans of the look have tried out a DIY version of fishtail brows; pencilling in the upper half of their fish tail then adding concealer to a section of the brow to create a gap.
