From the ‘90s to now, brow trends have changed drastically. For many of us, it’s been a tough, trying road to fuller, thicker brows. If your natural hair has had trouble transitioning from the less-is-more look to something a bit bolder, you aren’t alone and you aren’t without a beauty solution.
Daily filling and shaping with pencils, gels, waxes, and pomades is not only time consuming and frustrating, but also makes it hard to remain confident that your brows are always looking full, even, and smudge-free. Microblading is the new age cure all for eyebrows.
Microblading is a form of tattooing, but its results area far cry from the blurred, sometimes alarmingly bold permanent makeup we’ve come to know. Microblading is different, almost entirely due to the pigment. In the microblading procedure, pigment is placed into the skin, but the pigment itself is slightly different than typical tattoo pigment.
A much smaller quantity of the substance is placed into the superficial layers of the skin, using a small handheld tool with several tiny needles at its end. The result is fine, feather, natural-looking strokes that supplement your natural brow hairs.
Embarking on a journey that will change your face for the next year to 18 months can certainly be nerve racking, but a trained technician with microblading experience won’t steer you wrong. For most technicians, microblading involves some technical measurements, which means working with your unique facial dimensions to ensure the brows are the right length and distance apart. The rest of the look—think arch angle, brow thickness, and color—can be tailored to fit your individual style. This means a technician will more likely than not draw and re-draw the brow shape with a pencil until it perfectly fits your vision. That’s all before she ever begins tattooing.
The tattooing process itself is rather short and painless. With some minor discomfort and possibly a little redness following the procedure, your brows will heal quickly, and as long as you keep them moisturized and protected from the sun, should last between 12 and 18 months.
Depending on the state of your brows before the microblading procedure, the end result may come as a bit of a shock, but in time, most clients come to love their new brow looks. So long as you visit a trained, experience professional technician, your new look will be just what you need to confidently rock your brows at any time of day or night, with no makeup product required.
