Microblading - Shading - Ombre
These are 3 different techniques of semi permanent cosmetic OR... yes, TATTOO!
A tattoo simply means inserting pigment into the skin. Regardless of your prefered look, it graces you with 1 to 2+ years of low maintenance for your brows.
MICROBLADING; is a semi permanent tattoo created with a handheld tool. This technique is suitable for normal to dry skin. It is not recommended for oily skin or for someone with coarse hair.
The micro blade used for this technique is tiny, creating hair like strokes to give the illusion of fuller brows. It is semi permanent, therefore touch ups will be required on a yearly basis for most people. For oily skin, the visit to the salon will be more often.
The colour chosen will be slightly darker then the natural brow hair. As it heals it will fade 30-40% from day 1. A touch up is recommended 4 weeks after the first session, to reinforce what was created at the first appointment.
SHADING; Think of shading as the long-lost sibling to microblading. It's called "shading" rather than "blading" because during the process, shadow or gradient appearance with teeny-tiny dots of pigment are created to fill in sparse areas and define the eyebrows. The more dots there are and the closer they are together, the darker the results are.
The colour can be chosen according to the pencil or powder you use to fill in your brows. It will not fade as much as Microblading once healed.
OMBRE; the only difference between Shaded and Ombre is the brow is made to look darker at the arch, leaving the front lighter, creating a not so "drawn on" kind of look. Giving them a more natural look.
After care is crucial! It is very easy to take care of them afterwards, but there are certain things you will need to avoid like AHA creams, glycolic acid and sun. Sunscreen will be mandatory at all times to keep the colour looking its best.
