Eyebrow style began with the ancient Egyptians. They adorned the
all seeing eye of their Sun God Ra with a very bushy eyebrow which
later went on to be the symbol of Freemasonry. Another eye commonly seen
in Egyptian art was the Udjat Eye which had a thinly lined eyebrow.
This thin eyebrow became very popular in the 1920’s and 30’s when
Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo appeared on the screen with thinly
plucked and penciled eyebrows.
