If you’re considering having semi-permanent eyebrows, you’ve probably been wondering which technique will be best suited to you as an individual. Let’s take a look at the three main options – eyebrow feathering, eyebrow blocking and eyebrow microblading.
Eyebrow feathering has become extremely popular recently. It’s no wonder as there is currently a trend towards having natural-looking brows. Using this method, you can achieve a tidy look. The technician uses the tattoo needle to create many hair-like strokes so your brows don’t necessarily look enhanced. Feathering is perfect for you if you already have fairly good eyebrow hair coverage. Its also used to fill in any gaps in your brows so they look more uniform and full. It can even be used to create an entire brow on certain types of younger skin.
One potential down side is that depending on your skin type, your body can sometimes reject the pigments or can be prone to pigment hydration where the strokes blend together rather than looking distinct.
This method tends to last longer than the feathering technique because the pigment is more deeply implanted by the blocking method. Additionally, eyebrow blocking doesn’t usually need to be retouched as much as feathering. Therefore if you’re looking for a long-lasting look, blocking could be for you although the results sometimes don’t tend to be as completely natural in appearance as feathering.
The term microblading refers to tattooing pigment into the skin using a precision hand tool. You can achieve a very natural look via this process as the strokes your technician can achieve are incredibly fine. A skilled technician can even create beautiful brows where there are no current hairs to work with. As with feathering, there is the possibility that your body could reject the pigment or be prone to pigment hydration.
