Freaky Trends

I am not going to butter this post up with frilly words, phrases or such. I just have one question: What is UP with girls’ eyebrows? What happened to the little patch of hair after the arch? It’s non-existent! It’s as if a girl is constantly enraged. I asked my sister about this dreadful downfall in “Face Fashion” and she said that this is the fad now. Just because something is fashionable or ‘In’ does not mean that:

1- It’s nice to don or adopt.

2- It’ll surely look nice on you. Hell, I’ve seen really pretty girls take on this uglifying craze and they ended up looking not so pretty.

I just think it looks weird and kind of evil. I thought eyebrows were supposed to frame your eyes in a neat way, not make you look like you’re plotting your next murder.

Oh, and we’re also competing with Texan beauty pageants with big hair now. I think it’s more of a nest than puffy hair; I won’t be surprised if I see little, baby birds tweeting in that voluminous chunk of processed hair. I was in the supermarket and I saw a young woman with hair rising up to building’s ceiling. Now, on many girls it’s actually nice, but doesn’t that kind of overly flamboyant hairdo belong in weddings and formal events and not be taken for a sweaty walk on the seaside?

    I agree these are soiree hairdos I occasionally see some of them in jam3iya

    maybe they don’t have brothers

    They can save you the embarrassment before you leave home

    how come you no longer sketch?

    i have seen the overly thin brows, the ^ brows (which also look evil), the tattoo brows, but i have yet to see the ones u're talking about; i will be on the lookout.

    as for the big hairdos - they have to have them, u know, to go with all the makeup they wear !

    it does seem like freak town with all the hair do's ( I meant Dont's!!)

    the thing is that most girls don't really pay attenion to what works with their looks or doesn't .. if it's a trend they follow it no matter how ridiculous they look.. 6emasha!

    fashion police on the move as we speak :P

    error: It doesn't matter if a girl has a brother or not. She just needs a mirror, that's all. Sketching? I'm keeping that to myself for now :)

    joud: They're really hard to miss. They're both thin and tattooed, and what kind of freaks me out is that it's just a trend and you have girls waxing them off. Eyebrows take a long time to grow let alone into the wanted shape! And the hairdos, well, makeup or no makeup, they're just too extreme to be out and about for a simple dinner! I mean, if that's what some people do everyday, I wonder what kind of fruit their hair resembles in wedding i.e. pineapples, clusters of bananas, etc. It's intriguing to watch these trends come and go and to see their devote followers tagging along.

    3abeer: And it's just too bad really, I mean, it's not that flattering and it does not look natural at all, and imagine the amount of maintenance spent!

    princess: Well it's true! And actually, the pouffe is a really nice do. Hell, even my own mom tells me to tossle the crown of my hair so that'll look nice. But some heads are toooo big for the day AND night!

    abdulaziz: Well, Amy Lee's eyebrows are all right compared to what we have here. She's Goth anyway so she's off the fashion hook.

    i hate that new eyebrow trend too! it's crazy walla.. i think i first saw it in musalsalat kuwaitiya... chena, not sure..

    and the poofy hair is wayyy over the top! i'm mit7ajba so i don't do it outside the house (thank God :p), and i don't even do it at home cos i believe it belongs to "events" lol once i poofed up my hair for a wedding, as a new look instead of letting it down like usual, and this girl dared to ask me "laish mo emsawya tasree7a? laish sha3rich wayed simple chena mal 6al3a" and i'm like "...!?!?!" because to me, making my hair beauty pageant big IS a tasree7a! lol

    OMG ya girls these days are totally crossing the limits with their looks ! i hate that new eyebrow trend, it's UGLY ppl !! eyebrows can make or BREAK a whole look.. and the hair "NO COMMENT"..

    Seroiusly 7da sumthing eNarFizz !

    swair: They're everywhere, from sitcomes to TV shows to magazines. Oo ee wallah feeha ili ma nabee! I just hope this trend fades out fast...

    glam: My first reaction when I saw one girl with the over-plucked, overly darkened eyebrow is, "Laish itsaween ib roo7ich chithee?" Of course I didn't say that out loud but it's just too bad though...Of all the things to play around with, I think eyebrows are the most sensitive since they take SO long to shape. Oh well, cest la vie, or rather, it's their life!

    hahaha fruit salad wenti99adja

    thin AND tattooed. that's just wrong
  15. Blogger eshda3wa posted at 12:32 AM  
    its called a pouffe, ya3ne min elesm youde think u'll see something small and simple, what we see here should be called KABOOM!!
    and the eye brows, its just sad to see angry faces everywhere!
  16. Blogger Erzulie posted at 1:39 AM  
    joud: I think thin is better than tattooed. With thin ones, they can grow out i.e. they're not fixed. And I think some of the evil eyebrows are worse than others. For instance, some do still posess that certain arch while others are basically two diagnol lines placed opposite of each other.

    eshda3wa: I laughed so hard at your "KABOOM!" metaphor :P~ Ee wallah enfijar, moo sha3ar...

    Funny when I came through Kuwait airport customs three of the women working at passport control all had these thin, tatooed eyebrows. It looked unnatural.

    jewaira: Unnatural indeed...

    I hate those eyebrows even more than I hate the thin upside down V eyebrows...they make what could be a lovely girl look odd and comic bookish...

    There are very few really beautiful Kuwaiti girls anymore in my little opinion, and thats cuz they have squeezed the God given natural beauty out of them and cookie cuttered themselves into a ubiquitous uniformity of odd "fashionable" looks that are STRANGE.

    I especially find it odd to see a girl who is obviously Bedouin in heritage (I have always thought that traditional Bedouin Arab versions of beauty are quite striking and lovely) with a cute plasticized upturned button nose and cheek implants. I am not against cosmetic surgery, but not when there is nothing wrong with you to begin with and you are below the age of 35. Relish the untainted beauty of your 20's which only comes around once!

    Kuwait women = Frankenbeauties these days sadly...
  22. Blogger Erzulie posted at 12:18 PM  
    Ms. Baker: I cannot agree with you more. And I also think that "traditional Bedouin Arabs" are one of the most beautiful people in the world (yeah I do!) because their features are so distinct. Yet, everyone seems to follow the surgically "improved" masses nowadays...
