Seven years ago, I opened a pack of bleach cream after making a beauty run next to my apartment. Pasty white clumps sat on my eyebrows while I typed out my essay for art history class. I snapped a selfie and sent it to a colleague. “What the f*ck?” flashed across the screen of my iPhone 4.
It was a crazy decision I made while sober then, but I would still do it again. Today, the bleached brow is having a revival as the latest “It” beauty trend thanks to social media.
