Last year on the radar of the journalists got 22-year-old Sofia Hadjipanteli.
The Instagram star has already written many influential publications: Vice, Dazed, The Cut and beyond. A famous model due to its thick fused eyebrows, which many began to compare the girl with the artist Frida Kahlo. To run to the salon for eyebrow correction girl is in no hurry — on the contrary, Sofia founded the movement #UnibrowMovement and encourages girls to have complexes because of their features. However, not all admire her example. SPLETNIK.RU gathered interesting facts and controversial opinions about the model.

2.Her eyebrow — her pride
Sofia — blonde by nature, so her eyebrows looked not so impressive. Brand image, known now to all users of Instagram, was born almost by accident: as Sofia expressed herself, she decided to dye your eyebrows a darker color, but they turned completely black. Despite the dramatic change in the appearance of the brother models to which she came for advice, considered the experiment a success and offered to leave everything as is.
Now Sofia strongly cherishes and nurtures your eyebrows, maintaining their density. So, in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar she said that every night she covers them with castor oil. By the way, its monopoly Sofia had a nickname for Veronica.

Hadjipanteli also collaborated with Fenty Beauty and Beauty GSDS. She recently signed a contract with a model Agency Premier Models. The unusual look is inspiring not only fashion brands: Bratz firms and YanMimosa released dolls with monobromo in honor of Sofia.
