Ringo's eyebrow
« on: April 23, 2008, 05:53:09 PM »

I tried searching for a thread about this. Please move or delete if this has already been discussed elsewhere :)

I guess it's not really THAT important but I've always wondered what happened to Ringo's left eyebrow. Sometimes it's there, sometimes half of it seems to be shaved off.. I thought maybe something happened to it at one point during the Beatles period, but I found this picture from pretty early on:



In some later pictures the eyebrow is fullgrown, or it's been filled out to make it look that way..? And in other pictures it's weird looking again!

Ringo had patches of grey hair early in his life. Perhaps you heard about the grey patch in his hair, near his left temple? Well, he had half a grey eyebrow. He used to color it in with eyebrow pencil to make it look normal. He talks about this in the Beatles Monthly magazines.

He also said his beard would grow in half grey, so whenever he wore one he used to like to dye it to be all one color. Then he'd get sick of dying it and shave it all off.

Excellent question for the Ringo thread, Popaloptop. :)

Thanks ;D Wow, I didn't know that.. Thank you for clearing that up. I did a search on the internet and didn't find anything on it! You guys really know everything in this forum! I did know that he had that grey patch but I didn't make a connection from that to the brow!

I think you can see the grey patch of hair on the cover of the Please Please album. Or maybe it's just the lighting.

Absolutely, Freakchic9! Beatles' eyebrows are the subject of intense interest.

For example, there is a whole group of people devoted to discussing when George's unibrow went away. And Tony Sheridan didn't let Paul touch him for months because he thought he was gay-- because "no one has eyebrows like that" (he thought Paul plucked them!).

There is no source of trivia too small. ;D

Yea I wondered too when George's unibrow went away.... Something to look into  ;D

I had noticed it on the cover of Please Please Me (Ringo's grey patch in his hair).  They I noticed something was up with his eyebrow but I just thought it was the lighting.  Then I kept noticing it.  I think they mention it in the Anthology DVD's too.

When I was in 6th grade, I was playing with scissors and cut off half of my eye brow, so I had to find an eyebrow pencil and draw it in until it grew back. When my "friends" at school found out, they laughed. A lot. It was horrible.

I always see alot of girls who shave off their eyebrows and then draw them in.  And I always wonder what they might look like when they wake up in the morning, what their boyfriends (or girlfriends...whatever floats your boat!) roll over and look at someone with no eyebrows  :K)

Sorry if I offended anyone here who does that.
