Celebs Flew Specialist 7,500 Miles To Do Their Eyebrows For The Oscars

by Eitan Levine

My Sunday: I watched the Oscars at the Elite Daily office because I can't afford cable ever since Time Warner raised our rate to more than $90 a month.

Celebrities' Sunday: meeting with an eyebrow artist -- a profession I just found out about -- who was reportedly flown in from Sydney, Australia, just so A-listers brows would look nice at the Oscars.

What I'm trying to get across is we all live very different lives than Oscar goers, and that fact was on full display this past Sunday night.

According to The Independent, when it came time to get everyone's hair right above the eyeballs in tip-top shape for the Academy Awards, eyebrow-guru Sharon-Lee Hamilton was flown 7,500 miles from Sydney to Hollywood to do the "trim and wax" treatment on celebrity brows.

Wooooooof, look at those eye puppies! Hamilton sure knows her way around that specific part of a body.

The eyebrow work Hamilton normally does costs around $200, but Hamilton says when she is flown out to work on clients, all of her expenses are covered.

Though it is not known who exactly Hamilton worked with before this year's Oscars, she has previously worked with Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Serena Williams, George Clooney, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Princess Mary of Denmark.


Quick question: Should I be worried about my eyebrows? There are a lot of major Hollywood names on this list.

Should us regular dudes be making sure our brows are nice and tidy?

*Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story stated Leonardo DiCaprio was the one who paid for the eyebrow specialist to be flown in, but the story has been updated to reflect the correction made by The Sydney Morning Herald.
