Bowtie eyebrows. Nope, this isn't a joke! Bowtie eyebrows are in fact one of the daring new hairstyles we've seen explode on Instagram. Whether you tape your hairs down, draw them in, clip them up, or even ink them on – these days faux hair is more fashionable than faux-pas. That's why we're highlighting three of the craziest hair looks taking over social media. 

1. Eyelash Extensions 

Bernadette Baker, franchise owner of Deka Lash in Scottsdale, Arizona, says eyelash extensions are all the craze right now. You can get them in different ways, from a single one-lash to full lash strips. 

A lash artist will customize your look with a new lash on every single one of yours attaching them with an adhesive. Around $100 will get you up to three weeks of flawless falsies. The best thing about lash extensions is that you can literally wake up in the morning and walk out the door looking fabulous! 

2. Men's Hair Pieces 

Toupee? No Way! Men's hair pieces today are more like masterpieces. Curtis Mitchell is a YouTube educator and advocate for Men's Hair Systems. Modern systems are nearly undetectable, but not always talked about. His channel is a resource for information on products, maintenance and overall support. With proper care, Hair Systems can last months. 

3. Microblading 

Finally, there's an art to arti-facial hair and eyebrows are the canvas. Tracy Collett, Master Brow Artist at Collett Academy says microblading is a form of tattooing. It's a little bit different, only because they use a different type of pigment that's meant to be used only for the face. This semi-permanent cosmetic mimics your own hair growth. Brow artists design your look based on your own proportions. 

The wrong-shaped brow or not enough brow can really take away from a woman's appearance – and men's too! 

4. Eyebrow Design 

Don't want to spend a small fortune going under the needle? No worries. There's a cheaper, less painful alternative to microblading: your eyebrow pencil! Instagram beauty lovers are going crazy with some out-of-the-box designs for eyebrows, like this one from @beautylizs, in the shape of bows.  

Ok, you don't have to go to extremes, but simple, fuller, natural-looking brows are very achievable using any eyebrow pencil and doing hair-like strokes in the eyebrow shape you want.  

Fake hair? Who cares! Fancy faux follicles are trending form head to toe. And they look so good, you won't even bat an eye!
