Over the past century, the shape of women's eyebrows has undergone many changes-from drawn threads to natural wide contours, which would have spoken about untidiness 10-15 years ago.

The fashion for the shape of eyebrows has always been set by Hollywood divas and pop stars, so we decided to use their example to show how the female image has changed over the course of a century.

Therefore, the girls, following the example of Marlene Dietrich, simply shaved off their eyebrows and drew new ones-perfectly smooth threads.

In the 30s, the eyebrows were still thin, as they were a decade ago, but the image has now become more "dramatic" — the curves are theatrically curved, as if the girl is constantly surprised by something.

The trend was a pointed tip, which was finished with a pencil. It could reach up to the temple, as in Grace Kelly.
