A mum who caught the attention of the nation with a viral video because she has “Britain’s biggest eyebrows” looks completely different now she’s changed her look.
Sammie-Jo Hailford said trolls threatened to call social services on her and said she was an unfit mum because of her massive brows, reports the Daily Star.
She has now shared what she looks like without the make-up to her 90,000 TikTok followers, reports the Daily Record.
Having painted on the massive brows with liquid liner for 12 months, the mum-of-two removes them using a wipe – and some elbow grease.
The clip has been viewed over 790,000 times, with 20,000 likes and thousands of comments.
One fan replied: “Beautiful with or without. But what matters is what makes you feel comfortable.
“No one can tell you how you should dress or act or do your makeup.”
Another said: “Omg you have such nice shaped eyebrows without all that makeup on don’t need it all.”
And one person wrote: “Not in a million years would I say you’re the same person. Natural beauty always wins.”
Meanwhile, one response read: “Without the makeup, you are naturally gorgeous. Don’t hide behind the brows.”
Afterwards, Sammie-Jo told Daily Star: “Personally I love myself without makeup and I also love myself with makeup.
“But I prefer myself with the makeup because I feel the brows make me feel liberated and free.”
And earlier this week she explained why she enjoys making a statement with her brows.
She said: “I’m not a massive fan of beauty standards today.
“I feel like people are socially conditioned to only be beautiful if they are part of these standards and I just don’t agree with it and I don’t like it.
“I just like to make a statement and the brows do that for me.
“They started off normal size and they just got bigger over time and I just like to look different.”
The 27-year-old added: “It would be cool if they were Britain’s biggest eyebrows.
“I’ve now created a hashtag called ‘bigger the brow, bigger the boy’ because it’s true and that’s what I say to my friends.”
Since the interview, she has made headlines globally while gaining thousands of new followers.
And she caused a huge reaction online when she admitted to being threatened with social services.
She said: “People have said I shouldn’t be a mum and they are going to ring social services because of my eyebrows. It gets really extreme on the internet.
“They can call social services because I have nothing to hide. My eyebrows don’t determine whether I’m a good mother or not.”
She is now using her unique look to become a social media star.
And Sammie-Jo said she has been inundated with single men seeking her attention.
“I’ve had a lot of hate and judgment for my eyebrows and makeup but I’ve also had a lot of people being nice and supportive and I’ve seen them fighting the negative people in comments – it was very overwhelming.
“I’ve had people tagging me saying I made the news in India, Australia, Nigeria and America and the whole thing has been crazy.”
