She may have one of the most recognisable eyebrows around, but can you believe that at one time Cara Delevingne actually hated her bushy brows?

It was those iconic arches that got us all brow obsessed, but the 26-year-old recently opened up to InStyle magazine about her struggle to see the beauty in her brows:

“I did [hate my brows] and my mum would always tell me they were my best feature. I was like, ‘They look like giant slugs on my face and you think they’re my best feature?'”

She added, “I wanted small eyebrows, and I’d try to tweeze them down. I was also naturally skinny, but I wanted curves.”

Like the rest of us, Cara feels the pressure to always want what we don’t have.

“I don’t know why we do that as women. I didn’t start appreciating my brows until everyone else did.

“We want to be skinnier, we want to be taller, we want to have a big bum. Those are fads, and real beauty is from within. I mean we can all be vain at times, but for me, looks are one of the least meaningful things in my life.”

Your brows. Your style.

We totally agree with what Cara says. Beauty should be a way to express yourself, your style and your personality, rather than one-size-fits-all. After all, what’s more than beautiful than being unique? That’s why we’re all about tailor made beauty.

Our philosophy is that your brows should be yours ; you deserve way more than a carbon copy brow stencil. Whether you want big and bushy or perfectly defined, our stylists will work to create your dream brows.
