TECHNIQUES

different strokes for different folks

Microblading:

This technique involves making tiny little lines in the skin with a hand tool and ink, resulting in an eyebrow that looks like hair strokes. This option shows a lot more skin than the other techniques, and for that reason many people think it is the most subtle.

- Looks like hair strokes

- This technique usually fades the fastest

- More trauma to the skin over time, so touch-ups should be minimal and spread

over time

- Best for people with tight skin and small pores

- Better for people with dry and normal skin

- Not the best technique for people with extremely oily skin or people who bleed

easily

Blading with Shading:

This technique blends both hair strokes and shading into one blended outcome. First, microblading is done. Then another tool is used to provide a soft diluted version of color to fill the space between the strokes. This makes the brow look fuller and slightly more pigmented than can be achieved with microblading alone.

- Looks like hair strokes but with more coverage

- Lasts longer than microblading alone

- Still some microblading, though less is needed. Therefore, less touch-ups are

needed and less trauma to the skin

- Best option for those with little to no hair, or large holes in their natural brows

- Better option for people with oily skin

- Not the best technique for people who bleed easily

Ombre Powder Brows:

This technique is done with a small machine that gently inserts pigment into the skin  that looks very soft and misty. No hair strokes are placed, so the brow is fully covered with a light color, and little pigment is placed at the start of the brow for a soft look. This does not look like old traditional block brows! It’s soft a pretty, like a light makeup fill.

- No hair stokes are created

- Lasts longer than the other techniques

- Minimal trauma to the skin

- Less touch-ups required

- Great for all skin types
