Mum with UK’s biggest eyebrows threatened with social services


A woman has eyebrows so big that she gets abused in the street and strangers have threatened to call social services on her.

Sammie-Jo Hailford, from Grimsby, says her brows are so big that people have called her an unfit mother, but she has no plans to change.

Sammie-Jo, 27, has been trolled online and laughed at in the street, reports the DailyStar.

The mum of two said: “People have said I shouldn’t be a mum and they are going to ring social services because of my eyebrows. It gets really extreme on the internet.

“They can call social services because I have nothing to hide. My eyebrows don’t determine whether I’m a good mother or not.”

Sammi-Jo started using liquid liner to make her brows bigger one year ago. She said: “I’m not a massive fan of beauty standards today.

“I feel like people are socially conditioned to only be beautiful if they are part of these standards and I just don’t agree with it and I don’t like it. I just like to make a statement and the brows do that for me. They started off normal size and they just got bigger over time and I just like to look different.

“It would be cool if they were Britain’s biggest eyebrows. I’ve now created a hashtag called ‘bigger the brow bigger, the boy’ because it’s true and that’s what I say to my friends.”

Sammie-Jo has recently joined TikTok and attracted more than 75,000 followers in four weeks.

She said: “People say I don’t get boys because I have big eyebrows but that is wrong. I have had quite a few men in my inbox telling me I’m beautiful and saying they would date me.

“They always mention the eyebrows first, so maybe there is a fetish there.”

She added: “Younger girls will laugh at me in the street, I’ve had that a couple of times but they do it between themselves. The worst comments are online. I get horrible comments about my makeup and they also take the mick out of my teeth too.”

Sammie-Jo using her platform to encourage people to be who they want to be. She said: “I’ve not had the best life before now and I’ve suffered a lot of trauma and abuse from people.

“I guess the past three years I have found myself and I went through therapy to realise I am worthy no matter how I look or what I decide to do.”

The mum added: “Trolling doesn’t affect me now. I’m trying to raise awareness to the fact that people can be different. That’s how I fight them back.”
