End of an Era: Our Final Eyebrow Post

It's been a great run.  But now we're done. This is the final blog post on Blu's Eyebrow Blog.

We'd planned to run up about a half dozen more posts, just to get to 1,600 total posts. But it's becoming too much of a chore, and not as fun as it used to be. So we'll stick with curating the Flickr group Women's Eyebrows, and leave this site up for search engines to find.

We also thought a lot about whose photo to use in our final post. Our first-ever post, back in March of 2007, showed this corner of Ines Sastre:

And it's right that it have a place of honor here at the end.

But there's really no arguing about the icon of all eyebrow-centric thinking. It's the one, the only, Audrey Hepburn. The last of our looks at Audrey (in the 33rd post to mention her), is at the bottom of this column. Before we share Funny Face, though, here are a few stats from the almost 6 years of eyebrow blogging here:
  • Total posts: 1,595
  • Comments: 152
  • Page views all time: about 975,000
We checked on the most popular posts of all time too...some surprises, based on the lethal combo of our tags and peoples' search proclivities:
Note that the #1 all-time keyword search driving traffic to us has been: "Oops." We also get a lot of people looking for nude photos of Maggie Siff, who we blogged twice but then forgot about because we don't think she's interesting.

Our biggest month for traffic ever was easily May 2008. That's when we got a link from Fleshbot, Gawker's pr0n site. We were also on a roll anyway, with more than 50 posts that month, generating extra traffic.

Our number one source of traffic, with more than 24,000 clicks through, is IndieNudes. We mentioned them in June 2007 and they linked to us, and the hits just keep on coming. Thanks again for the link, guys.

Worldwide, we're most popular in the USA, followed by the UK, Germany, Canada, and France.

Enough with the stats. You don't care about that anyway. Here's our final hurrah, as we hurtle past the 1,000,000 page views mark. Thanks to all our readers, commenters, contributors, and friends. It's been a great ride – we'll see you on Flickr.

Scroll-down final scroll-down comment: Thanks especially to our biggest fan, most special supporter, most loyal reader, and best friend ever. She's been an odd kind of inspiration (in a good way), and she knows who she is. And we hope she knows how much we love her!

Emily Tebbetts' Underwater Work

Hello Friends,

Yes, the postings have slowed to a is complicated, and although we've been blogging consistently – if not always prolifically – since March of 2007, we find ourselves without the time and ability to focus on doing eyebrow blogging right.

So we're winding down. We'll have about another half-dozen posts, then we'll put Blu's Eyebrow Blog on ice, at least for now...but probably permanently.

But until then, we have a couple more gems to share. Like this beautiful artwork by photographer Emily Tebbetts. We're inviting her to add this work to our Women's Eyebrow group over on Flickr.

In fact, we're going to keep the Flickr group going, even after we put the blog on hold, so sign up for Flickr (it's free) and join the group. We have more than 700 photos in there, and we add a few every week or two.

Thanks friends. Stay tuned for the last few Blubrow posts....

The Last of Those Twins. Yeah Those Twins.

Going back several years, we posted a couple or three photos of these twins messing around. There are (somewhere out there) photos from the same set that include a naked dude, but we're just going to focus on the eyebrows and the femaleness of the situation.

Here are links to the previous Blubrow posts featuring these same somewhat unhappy-looking brunettes:

Glum Twins. But Still.

Those Naughty Twins Are Back

700th Post: Twins!

Summer: Thy Name was Paige Young

Where we live, it has finally become freakin' hot. That's the sign that summer has arrived.

And nothing says "Summer" like a vintage Playboy centerfold with bodacious tan lines and eyebrows.

This is Paige Young, Miss November 1968. I am sure that where we live, come November, we'll be pining for a scene like this to warm things back up.

Sadly, Miss Young died from a sleeping pill overdose in 1974 in Hollywood.

Blonde, Brunettes: Clarke and Taylor

A few weeks ago we mentioned Emilia Clarke, in the context of the HBO series, Game of Tits.

So...let's take a look. But let's put it in an original context... Emilia is a brunette, but on the show, she's a bleach blonde. But she rocks the dark eyebrows. We love that!

Here's a photo of her in her normal state and even though one brow is hidden, we dig this photo:

But just for a little context, like we said, we want to include a picture of another brunette who rocked the blonde look. Elizabeth Taylor, not as we have always seen her:

We dig that too.

Trying to Keep Up...and Failing!

OK, OK. We know. We've been ignoring you. We never call. We never write. We're like the worst bloggers ever! It's true.

But life gets in the although we can't promise that there will be a weekly post as in the past, rest assured the blog isn't dead, and it's not going's just...adapting. Or something.

Will you forgive us if we share photos of an All-American, wholesome, healthy brunette centerfold? A girl-next-door extraordinaire? You will? Thanks. That means a lot.

Here's Cindy Fuller. In May, 1959 she was Playboy Playmate of the Month. She was 20 years old when the photos were taken by Bunny Yeager. She knows how to smile. And bite a towel.

See you sometime....soon.

Ooooh! Oona!

Lotsa talk about Game of Thrones. Or, as we called it for a while, Game of Tits.

Except there aren't even that many tits anymore, it seems.

But...there are eyebrows!

We'll look at the dragon lady Emilia Clarke's brows in a future post, but they're already noted in the media. You don't hear as much about this lady's brows:

That's Oona Chaplin. She's the grand-daughter of actor Charlie Chaplin, and great-grand-daughter of Nobel Prize winning playwright Eugene O'Neill.

On Game of Thrones she plays some character named Lady Talisa, whose purpose makes as much sense as the roles played by every other person associated with this clusterfuck of a show.

That is to say: none.  

But we dig the brows.

Linda Evangelista with a Cancer Stick

We've said it before. We'll say it again.

Smoking is a horrible, dirty habit that is bad for you.

Also, it's freakin' hot.

Linda Evangelista.
