For the past few seasons, brows have been big news. Whether invisible, bushy or green, they've put themselves on the map. And just like hairstyles, makeup shades and clothing fashions, different shapes and textures of eyebrows go in and out of style over time. In the the '20s and '30s, it was all about thin, dramatic brows with lots of curves. In the '80s, there was a bigger-the-better attitude. And then there were the '90s, when brows were so thin, tweezers never got a break. So let's take a peek at some of the most memorable eyebrow styles over decades past. Which era stands out most for you?

I know, they sort mine out, too! I do like the bold brow trend, but it's hard coming out of the over-plucking '90s! xx
