UK Trend ALERT! The Scouse Brow

Celebrities, reality stars and even royalty have donned the thicker, dark eyebrows.

Liverpool’s “Scouse brow” is quickly becoming a trend that has been sparked by the cast of the new E4 show, the Desperate Scousewives.

Desperate Scousewives is a semi-reality show based in Liverpool, England. The show premiered on E4 at 10:00pm on November 28, 2011. The show’s name is a parody of the American comedy drama Desperate Housewives and is said to be “Liverpool’s answer to The Only Way Is Essex.”

Desperate Scousewives — begins with the arrival of make-up artist Jodie Lundstram who has just moved back to her home town.

Staggering off a Virgin train at Lime Street, she shrieks: “London‘s behind me, I’m back in the ‘Pool.” Jodie and her pals tackle the big conundrums of life while navigating the small pond that is Liverpool‘s social scene.

In Scousewives, himbos Joe McMahon (womanizing club promoter), Adam Ramsey (property manager) and Danny Latimer (DJ) ponder the important question: “What comes first — birds or football?”

Scouse ( /ˈskaʊs/) is an accent and dialect of English found primarily in the Metropolitan county of Merseyside, and closely associated with the city of Liverpool and the adjoining urban areas such as the boroughs of south Sefton, Knowsley and the Wirral. The accent is known to be as far reaching as Clwyd, Runcorn and Skelmersdale in Wales, Cheshire and Lancashire respectively.
