Bizarre attitudes towards eyebrows are not a new phenomenon in Japan, but I’m currently baffled as to why the latest trend is for girls to keep their beautiful, lustrous hair black yet bleach their eyebrows orange?

Black is back in, but it appears that some otherwise lovely young ladies are hanging on to their bleached brows as a kind of carroty homage to their lost do.

To the two-toned women of Japan: please stop. I find it difficult to talk to you, or in fact take you seriously.
