PRO'S and CONS
Micro blading eyebrows. This is a technique that creates very fine lines and “hair strokes”. Manually applied with different types of micro blades. The size the thickness of the blades can determine how the hair stroke will look. We often use thicker blades to create thicker more coarse looking hair strokes, there are also blade counts such as a 7 or 12 that will dictate what type of hair stroke the artist wants to create.
Microblading looks amazing immediately after the session is complete. There is little to none down time. Even thought there will be a bit of softening over time they do not look excessive immediately after.
One of my favorite benefits of Microblading is how natural they look. Its amazing to see the hairs come to life. The illusion of full/fuller brows that give a two dimensional appeal.
Microblading last a long time, typically one and a half to two years. Imagine waking up with brows that are always perfect.
Powder brows are meant to create a powder look, sort of airbrushed, much like topical powder make up. They are not for creating the look of hair strokes and are best for clients that want a more solid looking brow or have brow hairs but want a base color that creates density. Solid brows are similar but usually have more density to create that “pin up” look or “vintage” look.
The powder brow is a great replacement for penciled brows. They give a much more natural look than pencil for many reasons.
1 being the pigment is placed under the skin as apposed to the pencil lying on top of the skin. Pencil can give the look of crayon and at times pencil can also bunch up into the creases of the skin accentuating the wrinkles. Powder brow is a much better alternative.
Powder brows last a bit longer than Microblading, statistically 3 to 5 years. They are very beautiful and provide a frame to the face, but are not as natural looking as the microblading.
