Chip Hits This Nail On The Head

Chip Willis brings us this, which sort of sums up my mood right now.

There's much that is great about it. Thank you Chip.

Suicide Girl: Mantis

I think the Suicide Girls are running out of names. They're naming themselves after comic book characters now.

But they aren't running out of eyebrows, thank goodness.

Here's Mantis.

Avenge This: Diana Rigg

Dame Enid Diana Elizabeth Rigg turns 70 this year. But we remember her as be-turtlenecked bad-ass Emma Peel on the 1960s British TV series The Avengers.

Hell yeah.

Scroll-down secret agenty trivia: Rigg played Tracy Bond, James Bond's only wife, opposite one-time Bond George Lazenby. Although we actually think Lazenby was a damned good 007, we also think his career might have been affected by his subsequent appearance in Kentucky Fried Movie.

What? You want more trivia? Fine. Lazenby is married to tennis great Pam Shriver!

Brows on the Couch: Playboy, 1964

Where were you in 1964? I know where I was, but I ain't tellin'.

And thanks to Blubrow, you can find out where these beautifully-browed Playboy Magazine centerfolds were: on the couch! We've peeped vintage centerfolds before (and we'll do it again).

Behold this time, Miss February (Nancy Jo Hooper),

Miss April (Ashlyn Martin), and

Miss September (Astrid Schulz):

Scroll-down reminder: Don't forget the other stuff that was going on in 1964!

Suicide Girl: Sheila

We don't love everything about Sheila, self-described "Southern Belle".*

But we love the one feature that matters on this web site: her arching eyebrows. There's more on the SG site.

* The intros on the site, which we pick up in our RSS feed, are really tired. How many "sexy Southern Belles" do we need to "welcome to the site"? In fact, all words are unnecessary on the site. We don't want forums, profiles, clever quips, intros, or thanks to all the people who made this set such an awesome experience.

We just want eyebrows, and skin. Eyebrows, and skin. Got it?

Afrobella Talks Threading

I noticed a spike in visits to the blog today and went to see where all the traffic was from. Well I learned about a site called Afrobella – All Shades of Beautiful. There is a massive post on eyebrow threading, plus a ton of comments.

Nicest of all (if you're me, which I am) was a link back to my modest site. Afrobella wrote:
I also noticed that Bollywood stars, like Aishwarya Rai, have gorgeously manicured, thick, real, sexy brows. The kind that women in Indian and Middle Eastern cultures have — cultures where threading is an ancient art. I wanted strong, defined brows like that. Like the ones that gain admiration on Blu’s Eyebrow Blog (there’s a little nudity on that site, beware workplace readers).
Guilty as charged. But thank you Afrobella! You obviously know your brow business, and you have a true community of loyal readers, as indicated by the comments to your post.

Keep doing your thing, and we'll keep doing ours. And if your readers want to suggest particular women whose brows I can highlight here, I hope they will do so. I admit to a pang of guilt over the relative lack of diversity on this site. Aside from an occasional Indian or Irania woman, it's mostly white chicks, isn't it?

Well here's Trish Krishnan from Bollywood:

Happy Easter from Blu's Eyebrow Blog

Since when do bunnies have eyebrows? Oh, wait....

Scroll-down cognitive dissonance: Wait. Isn't that Gloria Steinem? What the hell???

Pretty People Pose for Parkinson

We are sure that Dr. Jay Parkinson's patients are grateful for his Hippocratic stylings. However, we are grateful for his keen eye and his penchant for models with beautiful eyebrows.

Like this one:

What do you get when you combine
  • a digital camera,
  • a color television screen, and
  • FashionTV?
This photo of a model with great eyebrows, getting her hair and makeup done for a runway show.

I don't know the model's name, but I like the crummy quality of the image. And the great quality of the brows.

Photographer Captures Brows Down Under

Redbubble is a site that lets people buy your photos and artwork and clothing and stuff. I think.

Australian Danielle McFarland has a handful of nice photos on the site, but the one we like best is this self-portrait, called Look Away:

She's beautiful, the photo is beautiful and – surprise – the eyebrows are superb. Buy a print or card!

Tip o' the tweezers to eagle-eyed subscriber "PM" who emailed us with this one! Much appreciated!

Tavares: Not Just For Christmas

Last year on Christmas eve, we gave you a look at Fernanda Tavares.

It seems like Easter is upon us. Why not some more holiday prep with the South American gem? This is supposed to be wallpaper – more like "smallpaper." Whatever. Click it.

Porn Stars Have Crappy Eyebrows

Did you ever see a female porn star? Maybe not in the street, but maybe on a DVD? Or a web site? You know you have! (If so, you may be able to help us....see our plea for help at the end of this posting!).

Seeing porn stars raises a lot of questions. Some of the important ones (such as "does that hurt good, or hurt bad?") are beyond the scope of this blog. Others, though, are within our purview. For example, what passes for "classy"?

Apparently, French manicures (you know, the square nails with the really white tips). That's because France is classy.

Also, completely decimated eyebrows, plucked to within a hair of obsolescence. So we thought it would be a good idea to collect a picture of every porn star we could find who had honest-to-goodness real eyebrows, the kind you can bring home to mom. Or something.

There aren't that many. We don't know who all the porn stars are anymore, but take a look at Jade Hsu:

And Lanny Barbie:

Or Olivia O'Lovely. (I know, I know):

OK folks, if that's all they've got...too bad, huh? At least there's always Sasha Grey:

Scroll-down plea for help: I am asking loyal readers to get their minds out of the gutter when watching porn, and instead send me examples of porn stars you think deserve to be included in Blu's Eyebrow Blog. We'll set aside time here at Worldwide Blubrow's underground lair to do some...research. And we'll report back. If you know someone who is representing with her ankles behind her ears, e-mail us at jjblu2000 AT gmail DOT com.

Sharon Stone Scares Little Animals. And Us.

I know. "Sharon Stone is so hot! Did you see Fatal Blah Blah? You can totally see everything!"

Friends, it's time to wake up. First of all, Sharon has more Botox in her than a bottle of Clostridium botulinin does. Second, she made her eyebrows look like Klingon brows:

Also, she unabashedly believes that fur clothing is cool, even though it's stupid and pointless. And bad:

And finally, she's actually not hot. Don't believe me? Take your eyes off her pussy long enough in Fatal Blah Blah for an update:

Scroll-down tough love apology: OK, I'm sorry I made you see all that. How can I make it up to you? I still want us to be friends. What? You would forgive me if I showed you a photo of a girl with good eyebrows giving a blowjob underwater? Fine. Here:

Tamara Ecclestone: The Paris Hilton of F1


Americans don't realize it, but the richest sport in the world is Formula I motor racing. And while redneck US fans of NASCAR and even open-wheel Indy Car racing turn their noses up at F1 the way they do at French cheese and man-purses, the fact is that the hyper-powered machines on the F1 circuit could kick an Indy Car's ass for a dime, and give you five cents change.

The Czar of Formula I is Bernie Ecclestone, a sort of half-Warhol/half-Elton Johnesque figure worth many billions of dollars. His daughter, Tamara Ecclestone, has decided that being an heiress is great fun, and gives her an excuse for being famous for being famous (but not having ever done anything). Like Paris Hilton.

At least she's got good eyebrows:

Scroll-down gratuitous fatuousness: Here's a video of Tamara doing what she does best. That is, writhing around in lingerie and high-heels. Why? Because she has nothing else to do.

Loren Looks Lovely

As seen before, Sophia Loren. She really knows how to bring it!

Morgane Dubled: Rajeunie?

Here's an editorial featuring French supermodel Morgane Dubled.

The funny thing is that the headline on the article promises the secret of recapturing your lost youth. It must be tough when you're in your early 20s and need to recapture that youthful look from a year or two before.

How do you say "Puhleeze" in French?

Femjoy's Alison Has a Velo

A velo is a bicycle, dummy.

She also has nice eyebrows, and...well here she is.

If you make it this far down the page, you deserve to see the rest of the set. Here it is.

South African Photographer Warwick Saint

Besides having an awesome name (he sounds like Simon Templar's alter ego), South African-born photographer Warwick Saint has an awesome eye, and in these samples shows us some awesome eyebrows.

Thanks, Warwick. Don't stop now!

Gentlemen Prefer Brows

Some vintage starlet eyebrows to start the weekend.

Marilyn Monroe. We saw her before, but not like this:

The Eyebrows of Star Trek - Part II

The original posting is getting a good amount of traffic, most of it from Google search of course, so I'll continue on with the Star Trek original series eyebrows:

Watch out for the curve ball!:

Ladies, Start Your Eyebrows

Formula I racing season starts this weekend Down Under. Last year McLaren snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Can they avoid that this time? I'm hoping so.

I'm also hoping there will be a chance to catch a glimpse of some decent eyebrows on the grid or in pit lane. To get us in the mood, here are a few eyebrows seen trackside in years past:

Overheard In New York, Again

Were you here in December when we overheard that little boy yelling at his mommy to get her eyebrows waxed?

Well, we now move from the 4 train to the L train:
Queer: You've got pretty natural eyebrows, sweetheart.

Asian girl: Thanks, but yours look sooo fake.
-L train

Scroll-down consolation: OK, OK, here's a photo of Dutch model Doutzen Kroes. Why are you guys all so visually stimulated?:
