A New Old Way to Communicate

By Abby Fields
October 23, 2014 - 8:00am

I'm in the midst of a quarter-life crisis. Since I started at KU last fall, I have had a plan. I am pursuing a Bachelor of Sciences in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. I have done undergraduate research since my first semester, and my faculty mentor has started to plan for me to take on my own project.

In appreciation of this, I asked Paige some questions to find out more on how she views fashion and where she gets inspiration for her standout style. READ MORE

Not only do your brows give your face some major definition, they are also a part on your face that is completely under your control. They are one of your beauty assets that you can alter to your liking with minimal damage. Dying your hair is fun but is not always a great choice if you want to keep your hair healthy. Cutting your hair differently will have you feeling fresh and new, but after the cut is done, you have to wait a bit to change it again. Eyebrows, on the other hand, give you much more freedom and flexibility. Although brows seem small they can make a difference and shouldn’t be something...
