The decades old trend in hip-hop of cutting into your eyebrows is rising to prominence again, according to BuzzFeed. You know what that means, a trend once seen on rappers like Soulja Boy and Bow Wow is making its way to the mainstream.

As The Root notes, the trend  has been around a long time before this most recent resurgence. Specifically, it goes as far back as Big Daddy Kane and later Jay Z who rapped, "three cuts in your eyebrows" on his 1999 song, Do It Again (Put Ya Hands Up). Still, BuzzFeed incorrectly refers to the trend that has long been known to the hip-hop community as cuts as "slits." Instagram users have started posting their cut-up eyebrow look under the hashtag #EyebrowSlits, something that most likely will not slow down thanks to BuzzFeed's promotion of it. 

If you're looking for some inspiration to start wearing the trend yourself, check out some of the examples below. There's a variety of different directions you could go with this one; people are trying anywhere from one to three cuts in either one or both eyebrows. Be warned, though, eyebrow hair is difficult to grow back once you cut it off.
