Dear Diary,

Today’s entry is brought to you by the letter ‘U’. Unibrow, that is the first thing that I thought of that begins with ‘u’ so that’s what I’m going to talk about. I don’t really know what to say about them so this should be short. I don’t really understand why people have them since tweezers and waxing are cheep and effective; maybe people just don’t like pain I don’t know. What I really don’t understand is Frida Kahlo, why would she put her unibrow in her paintings? I have to admire people with unibrows and especially Frida Kahlo, they accept themselves as they are and don’t change to fit the social norm. I think that shows remarkable courage.

Until next time,


  1. Why do we find it admirable when someone accepts themselves as they are? Shouldnt that be the norm instead of something unique to admire? I find it sad when we have to conform to what people think is the norm.

    As for Frida's Unibrow...why should that be different than her having brown eyes? norms/standards...but who cares. Beauty is within anyways

    I go for the unique...

    maybe thats why I didnt get elected Ms World.

    Maybe next year! ;)


  2. The only example of the unibrow that I can think of is Baby Gerald from the Simpsons. I'm not sure the mother was too keen on pruning that youngster's brow. Maybe, if the Simpsons ever get to age, Gerald will pluck the hairs free from his face some day.

    Thanks for sharing, and it's a pleasure to meet you via the A-Z Challenge!

  3. Maybe Frida kept her unibrow as a trademark like Trump's combover. Both of them share a stubborn streak, so they'd have a common bond. Very original idea! Julie
