Perfecting The Brow: Meagan Good Says Her Eyebrow Journey Was One Of Her Biggest Beauty Mistakes

"She was like, if nobody's gonna tell you, I'mma tell you: you look like a clown."

Our good sis, Meagan Good's eyebrow journey has been just that: a journey.

And her openness and willingness to discuss the matter has been refreshing, mostly because she was in the spotlight prior to YouTube videos or TikTok tutorials, so she kinda was the face of figuring it all out. But we've all had our bad days, damnit!

In the past, Good has addressed 'Brow-Gate' directly during a visit to The Wendy Williams Show. Wendy Williams handed out compliments, saying, "Your hair looks excellent, by the way, and your eyebrows still speak to me." Williams points out that Good's brows are the stuff of bold, beautifully arched dreams. She then discuss her journey, with Wendy,

"Nineties brow was pluck everything out, and then eventually it was tattooing," Good told Williams of her personal brow history. She went on to explain that she gave microblading a try when she was 30, but more recently, she decided, "You know what? I need real hair."

And so she got an eyebrow transplant.

Prior to her eyebrow transplant, Good told Allure in 2013 why she decided to get her brows tattooed:

"It used to take me over an hour to do them because I was so particular about the shape and the symmetry. I would go on set, and the makeup artist would change my brows, and I would get frustrated and change them back in my room. So eventually, I went ahead and tattooed them. Problem solved."

But chile that satisfaction was short-lived in the most hilarious way. When in an interview with her sister La'Myia for HelloBeautiful, the two had a blast sharing how far they'd come in fashion and beauty. La'Myia admitted to the struggle and reveled she and Meagan both had "string-like thread" eyebrows, which she dubbed as a "bad, bad, bad choice."

Meagan agreed by telling the story of the time La'Myia's first boyfriend's mother called Meagan herself to give her opinion on their stroke-thin brows.

"She was like, 'If nobody's gonna tell you, I'ma tell you. You're a beautiful girl but you look like a clown. They look shiny like somebody can just walk up and wipe them off.'"

Chiiiiiile, black mamas have no filter!

Once the shock wore off, Meagan decided to ask a few friends to weigh in, to which they agreed. Sis then went on a journey of perfecting her look, with next being a completely full brow look, which their little sister, Lexus described them as "caterpillars," giving Meagan the hint that they were too big.

"It's definitely been an evolution. That's probably the biggest regret besides wearing super short skirts in my 20's. What was I thinking?!"

Alexa, play “Waking up in the morning thinking about so many things...I just wish things would get better...”

(shout out to the people who understood that)

Anyway, in the end, Meagan and her sister can laugh at how far they've come, no matter how far it is. They're both proudly rocking flawless brows, and ultimately figuring out a look that they both love. Love to see it!

Ever since Chlöe and her sister Halle Bailey have been creating their own identities outside of their group Chloe x Halle, Chlöe has faced Beyoncé comparisons. Modeling her performance style after Beyoncé is no surprise since both Chlöe and Halle are signed to the "Formation" artist's label Parkwood Entertainment and so there's no doubt Queen Bey has influenced them in more ways than one.

While it's important that we're always proactive about taking care of our immune system, if there is any time of year when we tend to think about it more than usual, it's right when the fall season arrives. Cold weather has something to do with it. Cold and flu cases spiking have something to do with it. Wanting to make sure that we stay well enough so that we can enjoy some holiday time off probably plays a role in it too. And while things like rest, exercise and not smoking all help to keep our immune system healthy and strong, it's important to know how much diet plays a part in all of this too.

Y'all. Y'ALL. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to get a humidifier (which is basically an electronic device that helps to put humidity into the air). The main reason why is because I read an article that said that COVID thrives in low humidity. I'll get into that in a second, though. Anyway, what I thought was going to be a quick trip up the street ended up being a day-long endeavor because I had to go to four different stores and all of them had inventory issues. Most said it was because of the labor shortage that's been happening all over the country.
