Lucy Hale is known for her thick, luscious, and highly photogenic eyebrows — but as it turns out, the former Pretty Little Liars star wasn't always a fan of the bold brow look. We know because, this weekend, she shared several throwback photos of herself on Instagram, including one from her teenage years in which she had pencil-thin brows á la the infamous '90s beauty trend. And well, we won't lie, folks: It's a little shocking to see Hale without her signature arches.

The Almay ambassador took to her Instagram Stories on Friday night to share the aforementioned photo with fans. As you can see, it's a black-and-white number that features Hale with a moody facial expression, long flowing hair, and barely-there brows. "Omg, look at my brows," Hale can be heard saying on her Story, followed by, "Yikes..."

It's definitely wild to see the actress without her the dramatic brows she's become famous for, and yet, it's also cool to see how far they've come over the years. Of course, we have to imagine Hale has received a slew of DMs from fans and friends who are just as mind-blown by the throwback photo as we are. It just goes to show how much impact brows can have on a person's whole look.

Ever wonder how Hale got so blessed in the brow department? In 2017, Hale revealed she inherited her gorgeous bushy brows from her father in an adorable selfie with him. "Ya wonder where I got my brows from? 😏" read the caption.

Needless to say, seeing this photo makes us appreciate Hale's gloriously full eyebrows even more. Ah, the beauty of brow regrowth, y'all.
