Microblading is one of the hottest trends in beauty today and it is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows, especially for those with little to no hair. Unlike traditional machine applied permanent makeup, microblading is applied manually by using a tool to tattoo fine eyebrow hairs into your own eyebrows, creating the appearance of the full, perfectly shaped eyebrows you’ve always wanted! When performed correctly by a qualified microblading artist, it is difficult to tell the difference between your real hairs and the microbladed strokes.
Usually Microblading is done in two sessions. The first takes two to three hours. In the first session, the brow is shaped and styled to the client’s preference, and pigment is applied.. Four to six weeks later, the client returns for the second session for touch up, This takes one to two hours.
It takes about ten days for healing. In that time any redness will fade and the initial darkness of the eyebrows will begin to lighten. The color will lighten over about thirty days as it completely sets in.
Touch up is necessary because everyone heals differently and therefore the outcomes vary. Sometimes it is necessary to adjust the color and brow thickness by adding more strokes. In the touch up session, the final adjustments are made to assure the client’s satisfaction.
Phishading (Manual Brow Shading)
Brow shading technique is a perfect way to give your microbladed brows the shadow behind strokes effect/ brow powders effect that allows you not to worry about shading them in with browpowders or pencils. Its also semi permanent, but last a little longer than microblading itself, up to 2 years. It’ s a new and hot trend in the microblading world because it also allows the result to look absolutely realistic.
There are 2 main reasons to have BrowShading procedure on top of their eyebrows:
- Convenience. You simply do not have to perform any sort of make up on your eyebrows – those are looking perfect all the time and the look is practically identical to perfect brow makeup.
- Fill up the gap where brows have little or no hair: sometimes strokes are not enough since some people eyebrows dont have hair in certain areas. Shading will give the illusion of more even eyebrow.
Well it’s often a matter of taste first and foremost. Namely the difference that is achieved with the Brow shading procedure just fills in all the caps in between the slices of microblading that imitate actual brow hair. The effect is basically the same you would achieve adding quality brow powder, using brow pencil and brow gel on your brows. Of course you are welcome to do that even after having the shading procedure done but you don’t need to.
