Move over, Cara Delevingne.
You may have heard of "power brows," but let Instagram model Sophia Hadjipanteli introduce you to the "power brow."
Sophia Hadjipanteli, a Greek model, is using her signature unibrow to send an important message about self-love to her 56,000 Instagram followers. Hadjipanteli's #UnibrowMovement is not about getting women to ditch their tweezers, but rather promotes body acceptance.
"I am not really doing this to show people that they have to like [my unibrow], I am more so doing it to show people that they can get on with their lives by having a preference. I personally think my face looks better this way. Others disagree, and that’s totally cool," Hadjipanteli tells Harper's Bazaar. "I am not trying to get anyone on the unibrow bandwagon. If I like this, just let me like this."
But if you scroll through the comments section on one of Hadjipanteli's pictures, you will see that the Greek model get hundreds of negative responses.
"I wear makeup because it is fun. I have a unibrow because it is a preference. I wear makeup and have a unibrow because it is what I like. Don't put me in a bubble. Just because I embrace one natural part of me doesn't mean I'm a hypocrite for wanting to enhance other parts of who I am. I thought I would just put this out there just as a blanket statement," wrote Hadjipanteli in the caption of one of her pictures. "I'm who I am because I want to be this way. When you judge others for wearing makeup, dying their hair, altering parts of their body or inner self, JUST BECAUSE YOU DON'T, makes you just as toxic as a lot of societal norms and pressures we are constantly faced with. AT THE END OF THE DAY just do you cuz imma be doing me whether you like it or not."
Hadjipanteli tells Harper's Bazaar that she inherited her strong eyebrow from her mother. And if this picture if any indication, she ain't lying:
Her mother is the one who told her to put castor oil on her brows and orbital bone to get her hair to grow faster and thicker. Another tip Sophia has for seriously bold brows? Tinting them once in a while.
But Sophia may not keep her unibrow forever— only until she successfully changes conventional beauty standards with it.
"I want to be sure that I am not defined by the way I look right now. I look at [my unibrow] like it's winged eyeliner or red lipstick. In five years I might look back and think, 'that was a cool phase!' But until people start to accept others for this specific feature on their face, I won't feel ready to move on from it."
