MICROBLADING/FEATHER BROW (AKA: feather brows, embroidery brows)
The most popular today. It would be difficult to differentiate between this and the hair stroke technique at a glance. This type of brow results in VERY FINE AND NATURAL looking hairs. This technique is performed using a manual tool (not machine). The simulated hairs are not “mirror imaged” from one brow to another, they flow with your natural hairs that are growing in the area. This is the most natural look and last 1 year depending on lifestyle and personal metabolism. Refreshing is recommended annually and one session will only last about 6 months so a follow up is recommend to keep a longer looking effect.
HAIR STROKE TECHNIQUE
This brow is created using the same type of equipment as a powder brow or solid fill brow just using a different needle type. Once your shape has been drawn, each hair stroke is individually implanted with pigment to give the appearance stroked “hairs”. The simulated hairs are not “mirror imaged” from one brow to another, they flow with your natural hairs that are growing in your brow area lasting up to 1-2 years, great for those wanting a stronger natural look. Refresh recommended about 1-2 years.
POWDER FILL TECHNIQUE
Powder fill brow is a soft structured looking brow mimicking the use of eye shadow or a smudged look. The brow shape is created and then filled in solid with a diluted pigment, which will soften as it heals in. Great for those wanting a defined “make up look”. These technique is often used with the Hair Stroke or Feathered Brow. Refresh recommended in about 2 - 3 years.
Just as it says, this is the old school technique that is dense in colour with a structured shape. If you’re looking for bold this is for you. Not commonly requested these days but lasts the longest, up to 4-5 years. Refresh recommended 3-4 years.
