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!

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
