‘Fishtail Brows’ Are Sweeping Instagram, & Are We Even Surprised at This Point?

In the latest bizarro beauty news, Christmas-tree brows have been put away until next year, and in their place fishtail brows have sprung up. What even are fishtail eyebrows? I’m so happy you asked. Enter Instagram user @skyzEditz, who seemingly originated the trend when they uploaded a digitally manipulated image of a model with the now infamous brow look.

 Soon after, @hudabeauty herself posted a similarly edited pic, asking her followers what they thought about it.

Once the trend caught on, people started posting their own, unaltered recreations.

And unsurprisingly, the trend has been received with mixed opinions.

So what do you think? Is this the brow trend to end all brow trends, or will this one be ~sleeping with the fishes~ soon?
