What Are Chola Eyebrows

Chola eyebrows are part of the Hispanic and Latin American gangster culture, which is depicted by the way of dressing and makeup use i.e. the chola makeup. (NOT EVERY LATIN AMERICA IS A CHOLA; IT OFFENDS TO USE THE WORD OR ANYONE).

Cholar makeup originated for East LA in the 20th century where cholas (women) members often had thin and very angry looking arched tattooed brows (chola tattooed brows) or pencil on brows. The very thin, arched, and angry looking brows that were drawn (eyebrow sharpies) on or tattooed are what is known as chola eyebrows.

Furthermore, the cholas will then use dark red or brown lip liner, have some nose piercing, flannel shirts, jewelry (gold), tats, nose piercings, Nikes or Converse, bandanas, white tank tops, button plaid shirts, military style women belts, crunchy gelled hair or high ponytails  cascading straight on their backs or at times they would mousse down their hair.
