People Are Shaving Off Their Brows For The “Fox Eye” Challenge


Fresh off the Dolly Parton and Broomstick challenges comes the latest viral sensation to sweep social media: the Fox Eye Challenge. Believe it or not, TikTok users are shaving off the outside half of their eyebrows to create the illusion of “fox-like” eyes shared by models Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid.

Scroll through a few of the videos, and you’ll start to see a pattern.

Sounds crazy, right? But on TikTok, #FoxEye videos have racked up nearly four million views — and have pretty mixed reactions. While some people are pleasantly surprised with their brow transformations, others aren’t so happy with the results.

However, if you’ve decided you really want to go for the change — and the daily commitment of drawing your brows on — celebrity brow stylist Joey Healy cautions against using a 5-blade or straight razor, as seen in some videos. “Straight blades can be far too dangerous,” he warns, suggesting a serrated facial razor instead. “With serrated, there’s less of a chance of cutting the skin.” He also warns against lubricating agents like shaving cream, which disguises the brow and puts …read more
