Before recently, rocking a unibrow just wasn't a trend. In fact, some people consider their tweezers more important than any other product in their makeup bags. Especially since, these days, you can't go a minute without seeing a new eyebrow trend show up on your newsfeed. From the absurd (like "squiggle" brows) to the permanent (including microfeathering), maintaining the perfect pair of brows is all anyone can talk about. But thanks to Lorde, all of that is starting to change — and, if you've seen her Vogue Australia cover, you probably know why.
it's literally fucked that i could be on the cover of vogue i used to get called monobrow at school that BROW IS ON COVER OF VOGUE— Lorde (@lorde) September 16, 2017
The singer posted her Vogue Australia cover shot to Twitter, adding how she was ridiculed growing up because of her thicker brows. "It's literally fucked that I could be on the cover of Vogue I used to get called monobrow at school. That brow is on the cover of Vogue." Unlike the bullies of her past, we (and, apparently, most of the internet) are digging the overgrown arch... a lot.
Plus, this wouldn't be the first time we've considered tossing our tweezers for good. Everyone from Yara Shahidi to Instagram-famous models are popping up on our timelines with monobrows so fluffy, we can't help but want the same. And we're not alone in our sentiment. In response to Lorde's tweet, Twitter users came to the musician's defense to clap off any haters that might knock her bold brow ever again.

The general consensus here is clear: Let your brow hairs grow wild and free, if you so choose. You never know, maybe one day it will land you on the cover of Vogue.
