When bad brows happen to good people. That's the first thing that came to mind when we saw the trailers for her new movie La La Land as well as recent press shots of Emma Stone. The redheaded actress seems to have adopted a bold, new brow look for 2016, and we're not quite sure it suits her. Think we're exaggerating? Take a trip down Stone's brow-story to see where she's gone wrong — and right — in the past
WHEN HER BROWS WERE TOO HARSH
There's nothing wrong with bold brows if that's the look you're after, but the lines on her brows here in August 2016 look unnaturally drawn, especially when compared with her slightly unruly brow hairs. She looks just that tad off — older and more severe — despite the youthful haircut, and we think her straight and almost masculine brows are the culprit.
WHEN THEY WERE TOO SKINNY
The '90s was definitely a time of pencil thin brows, but back in 2008, Stone was still wearing some pretty thin arches. Considering this was eight years ago, it's safe to say that for many women, skinny brows actually age you. If you're guilty of never 'outgrowing' this look, grow your brows out for a month or two and head to a brow specialist for re-shaping. You'll be amazed at how much better you'll look with slightly fuller arches.
WHEN SHE GOT THE COLOUR JUST RIGHT
If you switch hair colours as often as Miss Stone, it can be tricky getting your brows just right. She's gone blonde, brunette, redheaded and nearly jet black, but we were most impressed by her blonde phase, where she got the thickness and hue just right at the Gangster Squad premiere. The medium brunette shade doesn't disappear under heavy bangs, nor does it clash with her champagne tresses.
WHEN THE SHAPE WAS PERFECTLY NATURAL
The 2015 movie Aloha was decimated by critics, but Stone's brows were bulletproof at its premiere. Walking the perfect balance between her propensity for thinner brows and a fuller shape that is trending now, her brows were well proportioned, the right colour match for her coppery tresses and looked 3D and textured... without veering into pristine territory.
