Puth’s career took off in 2015 after releasing his debut single, “See You Again.” The song quickly became a huge hit and garnered numerous accolades, including a Grammy nomination.

Since then, Puth has released multiple hit singles and albums, including “We Don’t Talk Anymore,” and “Marvin Gaye.” They each garnered critical acclaim and built his reputation as one of the most talented young artists in the music industry. We can certainly expect more great songs from him.

What’s up with Charlie Puth’s eyebrow?

Despite Puth’s incredible success, many fans are often more interested in his right eyebrow. The vertical strip of hair missing from it has become a trademark for Puth, with many fans shaving their right eyebrows to look like him.

As it turns out, the vertical strip of hair missing from Puth’s right eyebrow is actually a scar from a dog attack. When he was just 2 years old, Puth was playing outside with a friend when a large dog attacked him, causing deep scratches and lacerations to his face. In addition to suffering several puncture wounds, Puth also sustained a deep cut on his right eyebrow that required stitches.

Puth’s mother, Deborah, has said her son was “lucky to be alive” after the attack and that it left him with a “permanent reminder” in the form of a scar.

In an interview with ABC News Radio Online, Puth was open about the fact that some fans were mistaking his scar for a stylistic choice and that some have even gone so far as to shave their right eyebrow to look like him. Puth has said he finds it flattering that people want to emulate his unique look. But he always wants to set the record straight about the story behind it.
