MICROBLADING AND OMBRE
WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is the practice of manually depositing pigment into the skin using a hand held bladed 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. This is not the same as an Ombre or Powder brow (see below). Microblading is suitable for dry to normal skin.
The term Microblading and is sometimes used to describe all semipermanent permanent eyebrow makeup, (SPMU/PMU) including microstrokes, machine strokes, ombre brows, powder brows, nanoblading or micro pigmentation. This is not the same as an Ombre or Powder brow (see below).
BENEFITS OF MICROBLADING
Confidence - if you are self conscious about your look due to your brows or lack of , then permanent makeup can really make a difference. Permanent eyebrow make up is suitable for anybody with sparse, thin or gappy eyebrows, wanting fuller brows and more defined shape. 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 /PMU is that you no longer have to spend time drawing on a full brow or penciling in the gaps. You go to bed with and wake up with full eyebrows. Time is saved applying and removing brow makeup . No more frustration with trying to match them up !
Practical - unlike makeup, PMU 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. or worry about them running down your face.
WHAT ARE OMBRE BROWS/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 defined but still quite natural looking brow. It a what is called combination brow or a combo brow / combi brow. This is a little bolder than microblading but more natural than a bold ombre or powder brow .
WHAT TO EXPECT
Following an initial telephone consultation, and after checking for any contraindications (medical reasons that may mean you are not eligible) you can book via online booking system to place booking fee/deposit safely. This confirms your brow appointment and then we will arrange for your scratch test and consultation. (a no obligation consultation visit is available - see booking page) .
Using specific tools and techniques, I map the shape that will enable me to create your new bespoke eyebrows according to your own hair growth pattern, 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 eyebrows. You will leave with an aftercare kit and detailed aftercare instruction to follow .
Then, 6-8 weeks later you return for the touch up visit. This is to go over any fading, and any minor enhancements required will be made.
I have trained with Deluxe Brows , Lauren Taylor and Phibrows Academy and obtained my Phibrows Artist status. This has meant that I:
have been required to prove skill at each level to obtain a certification.
must adhere to strict Health and Safety standards.
have access to a huge international network of support via expert trainers, artists and medical practitioners at hand to keep the standard high and keep my client safe.
Pigments and tools:
I use only the highest standard of pigments for better retention and less redness when fading as do not contain a large quantity of heavy metals. Many pigments on the market contain large quantities of iron oxide pigments as they are cheaper to produce.
I use measuring tools, blades, pigments and apps that have been designed for optimum results.
