A woman who was called a “wolf” and “Golden Arches” by the school bullies because of her monobrow says that she now embraces – and more confident than ever.

Joselyn Jones, 23, was relentlessly bullied on the playground by kids who would cry like wolves or cruel to compare her unibrow to the McDonald’s logo.

She grew to hate her unibrow and begged her mother Pamela Jones, 57, to wash her.

When she was ten, Jones’ parents finally relented and allowed her to pluck her eyebrows, a careful daily routine of their thickness. For twelve years, Jones kept her eyebrows every morning and spent $10 weekly and have them professionally shaped.

In November 2017, they will find themselves in a one-month challenge to stop the grooming of her eyebrows and relaxing her hair, which would cost around $66 per six weeks.

But after years of painful plucking, Jones, from Atlanta, Georgia, decided to grow out her unibrow and embrace her natural beauty.

“It’s interesting because since I now my eyebrows men are more interested in me,” said the woman. “I think people are so used to seeing women in a certain way, that to see someone who is different is attractive.”

The mother says that her confidence was increased by the challenge and claims that the embrace of her unibrow has completely changed her outlook on life.

“When I was five years old I began to notice that everyone looked different to me,” she continued. “It made me a little uncomfortable. She began to tease me in preschool.”

“At school when I would walk in the corridors of the older children would make wolf sounds, such as crying as I passed,” she remembered. “It made me feel terrible. They would call me McDonald’s because she said that my eyebrows seemed to be the logo.”

“One day I came home from school to cry and my father said ‘Good’. He said that we could cut. He has his beard clippers and separated from my eyebrows right in the middle,” Jones remembered.

“Finally people stopped talking about me. It was emotional.”

“I started on my natural hair relaxed when I was nine or ten, and everything changed. I finally feel that I fit in with everyone,” Jones said. “My eyebrows require a lot of maintenance. I would snatch them in the centre every morning and evening and get them shaped professionally every week.”

“When I had my son, I was a single mother. I was putting myself through school and I was meeting all kinds of different women,” she recalled. “On a day there came a girl and she had eyebrows like mine, which is located in the middle and she hated them.”

“At the time that I went through hardship. I had three jobs, two in a restaurant and my own business, and all of that to go to school to get my hair stylist license. I literally stopped the time to look in the mirror,” she said. “I stopped touching my eyebrows and my hair. I was so tired of it.”

“I told her that they were beautiful and that a lot of people have to draw them in, or tattoo their eyebrows, but they had them, of course,” Jones detailed. “She smiled when I said that and I felt a bit hypocritical.”
