Eyebrows have become the beauty obsession of the decade. #Brows pops up over 3 million times on Instagram and over half a million YouTube tutorials await to help viewers create the perfect brow. A fairly new technique that is creating quite a stir in the world of brows is a technique called microblading. Ask Google about it and get close to 10 million search results!
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo that uses a small needle to deposit pigment just under the skin. Using thin, precise hair-like strokes to mimic hairs, it produces a full and natural look that has gained a cult-like following from celebrities to businesswomen to seniors to stay-at-home moms.
Lasting 12 – 18 months, microblading is a fantastic option for those with brows that are sparse, light colored, patchy or asymmetrical. It’s also ideal for those tired of getting their brows tinted every few weeks or maybe not ready to commit to permanent eyebrow tattooing.
If You Microblade, there are a few things you can do to keep your brows looking fresh. Be mindful of sun exposure, exfoliation or acne and anti-aging treatments on the brows, these can cause premature fading. In addition, take time to do some research and make sure you see a reputable and certified professional.
Because brow trends change, this semi-permanent procedure allows my clients the freedom to refine the shape of their brow to keep up with current styles. The process begins by measuring each brow to map out the finished look. It’s a collaborative process that ensures clients achieve their ideal look and walk out the door happy and with no downtime.
Microblading is available only through advance aestheticians that complete a 30-hour course, and AfterGlow is proud to be one of Cincinnati’s early adopters of this cutting edge beauty service. Book an appointment to discover how you can get virtually maintenance-free eyebrows that you love!
