At a first glance, Sophia Hadjipanteli looks like your typical model. She’s blonde, beautiful and has great eyebrows. Look a little closer and you’ll see she has a full on unibrow, replacing Frida Kahlo as the icon for strong-browed women. Sophia’s unique look has racked up almost 60,000 followers on Instagram. And though many praise her for showing a different view of beauty, there are a few that love to tell the model how unattractive a monobrow really is. For every ‘ugly’ comment, Sophia is aiming to hit back by kickstarting the #UnibrowMovement: a hashtag that she hopes will “normalise [things] that society pressures us to hide or fix. I want to encourage tolerance of others, acceptance of differences, and most importantly- be proud of who you are.” If you’re wondering why Sophia’s eyebrows are so dark, here’s a secret: they’re tinted. The model got so tired of having to fill in her naturally blonde brows that she tinted them, accidentally turning them black. Fortunately, she was over the moon with the look and now regularly ensures to tint them whenever the blonde starts coming through. “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,” she told Harper’s Bazaar . “I personally think my face looks better this way. Others disagree, and that’s totally cool. I am not trying to get anyone on the unibrow bandwagon. If I like this, just let me like this.” “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.” Take a look at Sophia’s bold brows along with some other women who are redefining modern beauty with their body hair.
