On fleek means stylish, awesome, executed perfectly. On fleek may be considered the evolution of the term on point, when used to mean someone or something stylish, awesome, executed perfectly. While on fleek appeared in the online Urban Dictionary in 2003, the term didn’t gain popularity until 2014 when Peaches Monroee posted a video describing her eyebrows as on fleek. The video went viral. Later in the year, Ariana Grande set Peaches Monroee’s words to song and various chain restaurants used the term on fleek in Twitter posts. In 2015 the word fleek was added to the Oxford English Dictionary.
