Vanilla Ice had it - even a younger David Beckham sported the look back in the 1990s. The eyebrow slit was huge among the men of that decade. It made a style statement like facial piercings and grunge. Its history is undetermined, but the eyebrow slit was a favorite among top rappers during those days, according to Popsugar.

Today, the eyebrow slit is getting a revival on Instagram and it's not just the men sporting it. Women have also been spotted with the slit and many of them look incredible, according to Buzzfeed.

A 2015 entry in the Urban Dictionary defines eyebrow slit: "Shaving gaps in your eyebrows to be trendy. It gets clumped in the category of eyebrows on fleek and shaping/drawing them on. It's usually done on one eyebrow but can be done on both, and there could but 2-3 slits on an eyebrow or just one. People also do these to identify with a group if a whole clique does eyebrow slits."

A little digging around showed that just five years ago, college kids didn't think it was hot to have shaved gaps on the eyebrows.

"There [sic] ok if you're in a boy band. If not they are really quite douchey," said one commenter on The Student Room.

"It looks ridiculous. If people I know get them, I will laugh at them," said another commenter on the same forum one year later.

But the look continues to earn more posts from Instagram users.
