While they might not be common these days, unibrows were praised as beautiful and a desirable feature in Ancient Greece. Women in that era reportedly used to use powdered materials or soot to make it appear that their two eyebrows were joined together.
So, maybe Sophia Hadjipanteli wanted to channel her Greek Cypriot heritage when deciding to embrace her brows and flaunt the monobrow on social media. The student has attracted more than 50,000 followers on Instagram alone, where she regularly posts photos of her full, thick brows with the hashtag #UnibrowMovement.
Hadjipanteli has told Harper's Bazaar: "I am not really doing this to show people that they have to like [my unibrow], I am more so doing it to show people that they can get on with their lives by having a preference. I personally think my face looks better this way. Others disagree, and that's totally cool.
"I am not trying to get anyone on the unibrow bandwagon. If I like this, just let me like this.
"Until people start to accept others for this specific feature on their face, I won't feel ready to move on from it"
Her posts receive plenty of love from fans, with many praising her for showing how beauty comes in different shapes and sizes. One says: "Just found you and I'm already in love!! You go girl!!! Stand up for us Uni's."
Another adds: "I literally love that she has a unibrow it's so unique and natural and she's gorgeous with or without it. People act like some extra hair is really a huge deal breaker to talk to someone as a friend or date them.
"Everyone gets hair, get the fuck over it. Plus let me remind you this one important thing that some of you seem to forget: it's not your body or your life and her preferences do not affect your life in any way."
Good on her for rejecting the haters and embracing the brow.
