Powdered brow vs. microblading
We often get asked what is the difference between a powdered brow look and microblading. Both solutions give your eyebrows more fullness and this is important since your eyebrows frame your face.
POWDERED BROW VS. MICROBLADING
The main reason that our clients consider a powdered brow vs. microblading is because their eyebrows have less hair and look sparse. There are many reasons why hair loss of the eyebrows occur and to be honest the main one is that all of us spent most of our younger years plucking, waxing and threading our eyebrows!
Many clients just reach for eyebrow gel, pencil or powder to make their eyebrows look fuller. This does work however it can be difficult to select the right colour to match and look natural. It is also time consuming!
What is microblading?
what are powdered brows?
A powdered brow vs. microblading is when a different method is used to achieve a fuller eyebrow. Many people such as our client and TV presenter Ruth Langsford prefer this method because it gives a soft and natural look and it is less invasive.
With powdered brows, instead of using strokes to fill in the eyebrow hairs, the needle is used to draw both dashes and dots on the targeted area. The semi-permanent pigment is deposited into the skin which causes it to last longer than microblading. The appearance of fullness and definition is achieved with a powdered brow and you can build upon the initial shading to layer the look.
Individuals with more oily skin and mature skin types, respond better to the powdered brow technique. We recommend our clients return for a touch-up procedure two months after the original session and the brows should then last for between one and three years.
