Cristiano Ronaldo’s Eyebrows: How They Evolved Into The Most Perfect Arches In Soccer
Rock hard abs, underwear ads, and a chiseled face are just a few of Cristiano Ronaldo's sexiest qualities — but we can't overlook his moves on the soccer field or those impeccable eyebrows. Looking at Ronaldo now makes it hard to believe that he was ever anything less than absolutely perfect. I mean not many people can still look unbelievably sexy while running around a soccer field and sweating profusely (just kidding, soccer players are almost always hot), but Ronaldo certainly makes it look easy. But a recent flashback photo that revealed Ronaldo's dorky-looking past made us all take a serious double-take.
No, I'm not being overdramatic — the photo, taken in November 2004, is almost unrecognizable. He has acne, frizzy hair, and braces. Basically, the only thing from the photo that confirmed it was definitely our favorite, perpetually naked soccer star were his eyebrows. Although they're nowhere near the Cara Delevingne rivals they are today, it's clear that his eyebrows started with a pretty great base that was easy for Ronaldo to perfect. It seems it was just a matter of a little plucking, shaping, and grooming to take them to next-level brow flawlessness. Let's take a look back at Ronaldo's eyebrows and how they've transformed into the best arches on the soccer field.
They weren't bad, but they weren't polished like they are today.
They seem a bit more groomed, but the bushy in the front, super thin at the back shape was identical to all the horrible mistakes we were already regretting in high school by this time.
The fullness is there, but there's no arch to even speak of. How could he even fake proper shock about his flops not leading to fouls on the opposing team back then?!
So close! That hair honestly looks dangerous.
Oof, looks like he might have over-plucked a little in 2008.
Okay, okay! Ronaldo's getting so well groomed he's giving me brow shame.
YES. We've reached peak brown sexiness.
I wonder how much time Ronaldo spends on his eyebrows and his hair.
Without the spiky hair to distract, it seemed like Ronaldo's brows couldn't get any better after 2012...
...BUT THEN THEY DID.
In the wise words of April Ludgate, "I want to make out with him and chew his eyebrows off."
