When it comes to brow grooming, our natural impulse is to pluck and tweeze the hairs within an inch of their lives (no one likes a unibrow). But one look at Solange Knowles' full, strong 1980's-style brows made us change our mind! The singer/actress/DJ's lush, perfectly groomed arches are a sexy, modern alternative to the super-skinny ones made popular in the last decade... Here's what you had to say: Paulette commented via Facebook: "Money is tight right now, so I do my own brows, manis and pedis." Nicole wrote via Facebook: "I get threaded, but I will not hesitate to breat out the tweezers if needed in between."

When it comes to brow grooming, our natural impulse is to pluck and tweeze the hairs within an inch of their lives (no one likes a unibrow). But one look at Solange Knowles' full, strong 1980's-style brows made us change our mind! The singer/actress/DJ's lush, perfectly groomed arches are a sexy, modern alternative to the super-skinny ones made popular in the last decade... The best part? The '80s brow is so much easier to maintain! To do: brush brows upward, tweeze any errant hairs under the arch or between brows, then use a pencil like Almay Brunette Brow-Defining Pencil ($7.50, drugstore.com) to fill in holes or sparse areas with short, feather-light strokes. If you have particularly unruly or curly brows, keep them in place by sweeping on a clear gel like Anastasia Clear Brow Gel ($21, beauty.com).
