microblading and ombre 




What is microblading?

Microblading is the practice of manually implanting pigment into the skin using a hand held tool. This enables the creation of crisp hair stokes of various lengths and densities, to create a natural, fuller and realistic looking brow. It can last between 1 to 3 years, and is sometimes referred to as semi permanent makeup, SPMU, micro strokes, ombre brows, powder brows, nanoblading or micro pigmentation.  


Benefits of microblading

Confidence -  if you are self conscious about your look due to your brows or lack of , then Microblading can help. Semi permanent eyebrow make up is suitable for anybody with sparse or thin eyebrows, wanting fuller or well shaped brows. Also suitable for those with little to no eyebrow hair, such as post chemotherapy patients or alopecia sufferers. 

Time saving -  one the benefits of Microblading is that you no longer have to spend time drawing on a full brow or penciling in the gaps.  You go to bed and wake up with full eyebrows.


Practical -  unlike makeup, microblading will not wash off or smudge, so hot days, swimming, holidays or visit to the gym are now possible without having to reapply your brows. 


Ombre powder brows 

Often referred to as powder brows because they resemble a powdered makeup look brow, without hair stokes. 

Ombre is the term for dark to light, or a fade of colour, so it refers to the eyebrow becoming  darker towards the tail. This is created using the traditional tattoo method of depositing the pigment into using a machine machine.  It can be created bold and dramatic or soft and powdery.    Unlike microblading it is suitable for all skin types, even very oily, and can sometimes last a little longer.


This also can be combined with stokes at the head of the brow to create a what is called combination brow or a combo brow / combi brow. 


What to expect

Following an initial telephone consultation, and after I check for any contraindications (medical reasons that may mean you are not eligible) we book you in for your patch test and consultation, where we will have a chat about your brows, answer any questions and go through the consultation form. COVID alteration:  If you're using our online booking system then we'll take a booking fee/deposit, you'll book your date and time and we'll arrange your patch test and video consultation. 


You treatment should be no later than a week after the patch test. Using specific tools and techniques, I map the shape that will enable me to create brows according to your own bone structure and facial anatomy. Only once this is done correctly and we are both satisfied, do I begin the process of depositing the pigment to create your ideal brows.  You will leave an aftercare kit and detailed aftercare instructions. 

Then, 5 -7 weeks later you return for the touch up visit. This will go over any fading, and any any amendment required will be made.
