Over the past year and a half, it’s been all “Cara Delevingne this,” “eyebrows on fleek that,” “blah blah tweezers.” Naturally, when you’re up to your forehead in think pieces on the merits of waxing vs. threading, it’s hard not to notice them. Eyebrows are more than just the reverse moustaches of the eyes, they’re a way to make a statement (and one that isn’t just “Do you smelllll-la-la-la-laowwwl what the Rock is cooking?”).
If you can’t beat them, join them, and celebrate these artists who are all about the here and…‘brow. #EyebrowRevival
**EDIT: We have added Cody Carson, Frank Iero, Jalex and Kier Kemp due to overwhelming reader response. Because, you know, we want to be completist in our eyebrow coverage.
THE SHARPEST ANGLES
ANDY BIERSACK, BLACK VEIL BRIDES
Biersack has a dramatically angled jawline, angled cheekbones, angled hair, and perfectly angled eyebrows to complement it all, of course. Boy must use a protractor for those things
DAVEY HAVOK, AFI
You can feel the intensity of those perfectly sculpted brows from miles away. More like A Furrow Inside…
NICHOLAS MATTHEWS, GET SCARED
Demonstrating mad filling skills
KEVIN WILLIAM, OLD WOUNDS

“If your eyebrows suck, you suck”
KIER KEMP, FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS
BEAUTY IN ABSENCE
ASH COSTELLO, NEW YEARS DAY
As someone who can barely keep eyeliner on my face all day, I have to admire someone who can keep painted brows that fierce and on-point all day.
CHRIS MOTIONLESS, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE
These sinister arches are basically worshiped by MIW’s Creatures.
Palmer’s eyebrows (or lack thereof) are more of an artistic statement resembling calligraphy.
I think having your brows sorted is a prerequisite for starting a cosmetics line (See: Jeffree Star Cosmetics).
STEP ASIDE, DELEVINGNE: THICK & SLICK
BENN SUEDE, CROWN THE EMPIRE
Supermodels should be super-jealous.
RONNIE RADKE, FALLING IN REVERSE
Thick, dark, 100 percent on-trend and known to dabble in a bit of shaved line action.
MIKEY WAY, ELECTRIC CENTURY
Mastering the forever-frown.
ALEX AND JACK, ALL TIME LOW
MATT HEALY, THE 1975
First lesson in conveying human emotion in art: Eyebrows mean everything, and if you angle them upward in the middle, it conveys sadness. Matty Healy’s brows apply that theory in real life, giving him an amazing perma-pout.
HAYLEY WILLIAMS, PARAMORE
Check out this “punk-chic eyebrow” tutorial.
LYNN GUNN, PVRIS
Often seen with lines shaved into her eyebrows for a moody and finely shaped looks
MAURA WEAVER, EX-MIXTAPES
Her eyebrows have more personality than most people I meet.
CODY CARSON, SET IT OFF
KEEPING IT REAL (TIDY)
JENNA McDOUGALL, TONIGHT ALIVE
Jenna is the picture of natural vibrance and her effortless, tidy eyebrows only enhance her glow.
KEVIN JORDAN, THIS WILD LIFE
Well-groomed beard, well-groomed ‘brows. This is a man who clearly takes care of himself.
KEITH BUCKLEY, EVERY TIME I DIE
Though untamed in comparison to most, Buckley’s more rounded eyebrows provide the perfect accent to his face.
LUKE HOLLAND, THE WORD ALIVE
Congratulations on your eyestaches.
JASON AALON BUTLER, LETLIVE.
