Sophia Hadjipanteli is making a statement!

Embrace your unibrow!

That's what this model is doing, and she's proving to be an inspiration to those who feel constricted by beauty norms!

Greek-Cypriot Sophia Hadjipanteli proudly displays her fuller brows on Instagram, which has nearly 50k followers! While it's clear she is getting a lot of love from fans, she unfortunately gets a lot of hate too.

But the University of Maryland student will have you know she's not rocking her unibrow for anyone but herself. In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, she admitted:

"I am not really doing this to show people that they have to like [my unibrow], I am more so doing it to show people that they can get on with their lives by having a preference. I personally think my face looks better this way. Others disagree, and that's totally cool. I am not trying to get anyone on the unibrow bandwagon. If I like this, just let me like this."

Sophia also explained:

"I think it's kind of bizarre that people who fill-in their eyebrows, not that I'm hating on people that do at all, but they're annoyed when I don't fill mine in and leave them as they are. We are both trying to achieve the same standard of beauty, but in a different ways. It upsets me that it's frowned upon in one way and glorified in another."

The bold beauty confessed she may not be rocking this look for life, spilling:

"I want to be sure that I am not defined by the way I look right now. I look at [my unibrow] like it's winged eyeliner or red lipstick. In five years I might look back and think, 'that was a cool phase!' But until people start to accept others for this specific feature on their face, I won't feel ready to move on from it."

Girl should keep doing her!!

Thankfully there are those who love Sophia just the way she is, even requesting her to do a Frida Kahlo-themed shoot since the artist was also beautifully rocking the fuller brow:

"I didn't want it to feel like I was appropriating her at all," she cautions. "I have always loved her and thought she was so beautiful—I remember I did a project on her back in middle school, before I even had these eyebrows. After doing that, I feel like I have labeled myself as someone who is embracing being myself and isn't necessarily being natural, but instead just doing what I want. I like having everything else snatched, except my eyebrows."
