Cypriot-born Sophia Hadjipanteli, a model, 22, has claimed she has received death threats for embracing her natural eyebrows. US model Sophia Hadjipanteli, the self-styled founder of the “unibrow movement”, made the admission on ITV’s Good Morning Britain.
Sophia Hadjipanteli opts not to pluck her eyebrows proudly leaving her monobrow, nicknamed Veronika, to grow naturally.
The model’s striking look has earned her almost 200,000 Instagram followers but unfortunately, it’s also attracted some unwarranted attention.
During her appearance on Tuesday’s episode of Good Morning Britain, Sophia said: ‘I get a lot of death threats, funnily enough, I guess it’s not that funny.
‘I definitely get a lot of negative reactions, I’m not going to sit here and say a lot of them are positive because that’s obviously not the case. Most are negative.’
With hosts Piers and Susanna Reid listening horrified, Sophia continued: ‘It’s disgusting but then you think how is it that somewhere somebody has been told that it’s so unacceptable to look the way I do that it infuriates them to the point where they have to threaten my life.
‘I think it has to do with this ongoing conversation that we are being brought up in a society that not only favorites but encourages people to go down one road. It’s quite a strongly paved road.’
Piers slammed the death threats as disgusting and admitted he finds Sophia ‘beguiling in person’.
After revealing that she doesn’t report the nasty messages, Sophia continued: ‘I try not to read a lot of them so a lot of people tell me when I get them.
I don’t really have the patience to go through each comment.
‘It’s a bit of a shame when you want to read the nice ones, to have to go through all the mean ones, but it’s worth it I think.’
Asked whether her boyfriend Zac Apostolou, a London-based photographer, is a fan of her monobrow, Sophia said: ‘He loves it.
‘He had a monobrow when he was little as well. I tint my eyebrows, I naturally have quite dark eyebrows but not this dark, so whenever I’m tinting them he always gets so interested in what I’m doing.’
The natural blonde admitted the striking appearance of her brows was enhanced back in 2014 when she tried tinting them and accidentally dyed them black.
She hopes her unibrow movement and body positive message will inspire others and even uses the hashtag #UnibrowMovement in her Instagram bio.
