If I knew what was good for me, I would have never started plucking my eyebrows when I was in my teens. But at the time everyone around me was doing it and having quite a thick set above my peepers, I wanted to thin them the fuck out.

At first it was a tricky task that resulted in a bloody mess because if you give me anything with a sharp tip, I will somehow figure out a way to maim myself. But by the time I would have gotten the hang of it, I had moved on to waxing. These days I no longer have to wax; now it’s just an occasional pluck of a stray hair here or there, because I pretty much plucked them all away.

Although I’d never want the eyebrows that Joan Crawford was known for in her day, I would still like thicker ones. I really appreciate Crawford’s style, as well as the fact that, according to many sources, the woman was kind of a nut. Strength in numbers, I say!

Joan Crawford was born on this day in 1905, and since we’re all about celebrating women and fashion, let’s do just that for Ms. Crawford and her iconic eyebrows. I will steer clear of any “no wire hangers” jokes.[ITPGallery]
