6. Fishtail Slit
This one is more common in feminine society. A slit is made at the end part of the brow and just before the end, the part is upturned to give a wavy and fishtail-like look (this requires more than just trimming, threading, and tweezing). In addition to it being already extraordinary-looking, color can be added on the latter part of the brow to enhance it more.
7. Star Slit
This style can be made as a combination of two unique styles- a star and a double-slit.

Either way, this eyebrow slit type is a worthy one to be tried by women.
