Why Brows? Part One

By Gunner Glam

You may have wondered, “What is the evolutionary significance of a pair of eyebrows?”

There are sources which suggest eyebrows are more than just hair follicles above humans’ eyes, but also express emotions that come before words.

Studio Brow would like to share some insight on why eyebrows are significant beyond just hygiene and cosmetics.

Eyebrows are a major facial feature. Cosmetic methods have been developed to alter the look of one’s brows, whether the goal is to add or remove hair, change the color or change the position of the brow.

From the eighth century, many Japanese noblewomen practiced hikimayu, which is shaving or plucking the eyebrow hair and painting smudge-like ones higher on the forehead.

In an online article, by Judy Rong, called “Chinese Face Reading: Your Eyebrows and You, Foreshadowing in the Eyebrows,” there is wealth of information of how much people’s eyebrows can say about them.

In the modern age of beauty, the shape of the eyebrows is no longer determined by nature. However, some background is still useful for those interested in what their eyebrows say when it comes to face reading.

Extends Pass the Eye
In the text for face reading, when the eyebrows extend much beyond the eyes, this person is destined to have four to six siblings. Modern intervention, however, can make this prediction somewhat inaccurate.

Short Eyebrows
If long eyebrows mean lots of siblings, does short eyebrows indicate fewer siblings? That is correct. In addition, the eyebrows govern fortunes between 31 to 34 years of age. A short eyebrow indicates that between 31 and 34, a person will have more disruptions in their professional and personal life.

Thick & Dark
A person with thick and dark eyebrows is very active and friendly. They like to have parties and treat their friends. However, when they are 31 to 34 years of age, they will encounter disruptions or hardships. If they work hard, their hardship will turn into essential training for later events in their life.

Light Brows
Females with light and sparse brows make good assistants. They are more detail oriented and will follow directions to the letter. In addition, they know how to organize their work and make good arrangements for different situations and events.

A person with a straight horizontal brow has extremely strong convictions. They will hold to their own beliefs no matter what. They will argue for it until it is the only conviction.

Pointed Upwards
People with brows that points upward have very strong work ethics and will ask the same of others. They are generally regarded as leadership material.

Broken Brow
If a person has a disruption in their eyebrows, this means they lack connections to their siblings. This includes siblings who have passed away. In addition, they will encounter disruptions especially at the age of 31 to 34.

A person with a unibrow will not have the best of luck before 30. It is possible that they didn’t have a good learning environment or had grades that were just passing. Thus they would not have much luck at the early stages of their life. In addition, the hairs cover the space between the brows, which is a focal point in a person’s energy and spirit. This will affect their mood and behavior. Resolving this is actually rather easy; just pluck the hairs to reverse the downward trend of luck.

If the hairs on the eyebrows curl in a circle at one point or another that means the personal relationships between siblings are not that strong. In addition, for this particular type of eyebrow, from 31 to 40 years of age, a person will have many bad influences around them.

Different Length/Shape/Position                                                                                                                                                                                       If one eyebrow is definitely higher, longer, or straighter than the other, this means this person will have more than one father or more than one mother. In addition from 31 to 34 years of age, their fortune will be turbulent, sometimes good and sometimes bad.

Thin and Moon Shaped
If the eyebrow is thin and moon shaped, this indicates this person is gentle and considerate. For women, it also means they are more traditional when it comes to marriage, raising children, and so forth. They also have good work ethics and will have a good chance of promotions when they are 31 to 34 years of age.

Big Mess
If the eyebrows resemble a big mess, that means they aren’t good at keep money. This is a money-loss eyebrow. Even if other facial features indicate good fortunes, the money-loss brow is a low point that is hard to overcome.

If there is a mole within the eyebrow, it is generally a good sign. A person with this kind of eyebrows will be well off. If it’s hardly visible, it means that their wealth is not ostentatious, that people rarely know they have money. If the mole is large and prominent, it is just like showing everyone your wealth. Others will attempt to usurp it from you, and therefore this brow indicates an inability to save. To overcome this, they must be very careful and pretend to be lacking in their savings while putting a set amount away every single time.

What do your eyebrows say about your fortunes? Remember these predictions are not written in stone. Even if they are right about you, once you know what you lack, you can seek to rectify the situation or be careful in the things that you do.
