Brow Mania; Micro Blading

Micro Blading. Before and After

I kept hearing the term "micro blading" and filed it under, note to self, do find out what this means. I knew it was brow and tattoo related, but I couldn't fathom how that could actually translate into fuller, more beautiful brows that look full and entirely natural.   Most tatooed brows unfortunately, look like they were created with a Sharpie.

When a friend posted her newly microbladed brows in a Selfie, I immediately sent a PM asking for the 411. Answer:  "Micro blading is a medical grade tattoo, applied with a small blade that creates hair like strokes.  It does require a touch up in a month, and generally lasts between 10-24 months.  Cost is about $800.

They looked spectacular!

Is it pain free?  Not entirely, though the the numbing cream applied a half hour before significantly take the sting out.  Since this is a long term proposition, I would suggest sourcing an expert, who is licensed and going to someone whose handiwork you have seen in person.

I like how the woman's eyebrows look above, but with an expert shaping, grooming and some brow gel, I think similar looking results could be achieved.

Granted, they would go down the sink nightly.  I did a little dig work and found out that the number three most ordered item on Amazon is WunderBrow, a semi permanent waterproof eyebrow gel, that lasts 2 or 3 days.  It's available in 4 shades and costs $22.   WUNDERBROW contains, "an exclusive blend of hair-like fibers, combined with specifically treated pigments designed to fasten onto skin and hair."

I think I will start here...

What about you???  Do you see Micro Blading in your future???  Is it more maintenance and toil in your book, or would it give your freedom and pleasure to wake up with perfect brows???
