Microblading provides a natural fluffy look to the eyebrows and fills in and defines the entire brow. It is an excellent procedure for bald, sparse or over plucked brows or for any areas that usually require "filling in" with light makeup application. It does a tremendous job of re-establishing lost shape to over plucked brows helping to creating symmetry.
Microblading is a manual technique that creates very fine lines, (aka “hairstrokes”) within your eyebrows to replicate the look of your natural brow hairs. It can create a light, soft, airy effect to the eyebrows, enhancing your features and framing your face.
Microblading is ideal for normal to dry skin types. Clients with oily skin will heal with slightly more powdery hair strokes whereas clients with normal to dryer skins heal with slightly more crisp lines, resulting in a very natural look. Consequently, oily skins require more frequent touch ups as the oils in the skin increase fading. For this reason, oily skinned clients are best to explore the option of a combo brow that includes shading or a full soft powder brow.
For a more dramatic look, makeup can be applied to the brows once healing is complete
The technique uses a sterile and disposable, hand tool made up of extremely fine tipped needles that are fused together in a linear grouping of various thicknesses. The technique involves depositing the pigment into the second layer of skin in the direction of the individual's natural hair growth. This is done with an extremely controlled technique and artistic eye.
Results can last anywhere from 1-2.5 years depending on the individual skin type
THe History of Microblading
The manual technique of depositing pigment with fine hair like incisions into the skin, dates back thousands of years. The more recent trend however, of using the technique for eyebrows, emerged in Asia in recent years, approximately 25 years ago, and is also referred to as "eyebrow embroidery", "3D brows", "micro stroking" and "eyebrow feathering".
The method matured in Asia as various artists attempted to perfect different applications, techniques and the use of tools. The history of microblading is not as well documented in North America, but has gained a lot of popularity in the last several years.
