Lest she run the risk of an imperfect eyebrow, Rihanna tests out new styles on a lookalike model, according to Hollywood’s favorite eyebrow stylist, Damone Roberts.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Roberts called Rihanna one of his “favorite people,” probably because she is damn serious about the delicate hairs that keep sweat from dripping into her eye sockets:
So Rihanna’s so fly that she has a lookalike model come by your space and you try out different looks on the eyebrows on the model and you send pictures to Rihanna and she decides whether she wants to do it or not! So literally a lookalike model we trialed (sic) and tried and everything else until we got them perfect and we sent Rihanna the pictures and we heard nothing and of course two days before the Met Gala she’s like, “I loved them! You gotta fly to NY and take care of me!”
Roberts is responsible for Rihanna’s (and her brow twin’s) bleached eyebrows from 2018's Met Gala.
You know who puts in the work for a strong brow? Jenna Dewan:
We worked on shaping her brows for many, many years to get them really nice and full and we finally got them to the point that I don’t see her nearly as much as I would like to these days! But it’s because we really have trained them through the years to get them perfectly for her and they frame her perfectly.
I’d like to hear more about this years-long eyebrow training regimen, please.
