Well, we didn't expect this to become a trend.

So there are a lot of weird beauty trends. And I mean, a lot of them. There's contouring with a knife, denim hair, and even something called clowning.

Well, strap in, kids. There is a whole new beauty trick to try and you can probably start it today...if you've got an onion handy.

Follow me on this. 

Instagram is going wild for the beauty tip that most people hadn't thought of until now. These days, luscious thick eyebrows are very in style. Just ask Cara Delevingne and the new crop of thick browed beauty bloggers. Beauty guru, Farah Dhukai posted her onion beauty secret and it's a tad bit...unconventional.

The video's caption says this: 

"Grow eyebrows fast. Onion juice has suphur [sic] which speeds up the growth of hair and makes it thicker. Massage onion juice on brows for 5 mins. Let dry completely. Wash off with cold water or a mild cleanser. Do this every day. Careful not to get this in ur eyes."  Your parents probably taught you to keep onions away from your eyes, but maybe they were wrong.

So far the results are mixed.

We admit, it's not the most conventional but sometimes it takes a little elbow grease (or, in this case, onion grease) to accomplish something important. And fleeky eyebrows are very important.
