Microblading Versus Ombre Brows

What is the difference between Microblading and Ombre brows? Well, my friends, there is a big difference. Although both services last about two years, the healing process and overall aesthetics are different. The results vary based on your skin type such as oily, normal or combination as well as your lifestyle. A skilled aesthetician should be able to tell you about your skin and suggest the proper procedure to achieve your ideal brow.

Microblading is suitable for those of us who may not have full eyebrows or no eyebrows at all. The technique uses a hand tool to create hair strokes resembling real brow hair. You may first want to understand that microblading is a form of cosmetic tattooing. The pigmentation is placed underneath the skin. If you have oily skin, the pigment could fade, and you will need more touch-ups than a face with normal skin.

It's essential to be honest and upfront with your esthetician about your skin type. Microblading is a significant investment, and you want to get the biggest bang for your buck.

Now, have no fear my oily skin friend and welcome to the world of Shading or Powder Brows. This look is achieved by using a shading technique, the brow looks more like powder or ombre instead of individual hair strokes. Ombre brows give the look of a filled in eyebrow. This is a great option for those with oily skin. Even though the oil makes it less receptive to hair strokes you can still wake up every morning with perfect brows!

Lastly, we also can combine the two techniques. Some of us are pretty sure we want hair strokes while some of us want to have the best of both worlds. Well, let me tell you, YOU CAN! We have a brow combo available to those women who want both hair strokes and the powder look at the same time.
