What Is Microblading?

Being a cosmetologist,everyone seems to think you know all the tea about, the latest beauty treatment. So after being asked (and inboxed) about,and if I did, microblading I decided to do research.642d36beabdb77b9c3fac2b79d9a3ce3 During the microblading process a special microblading pen is used to draw on individual strokes one by one. Unlike the sometimes Sharpie-like effects of permanent makeup, microblading is more like embroidery. The strokes look just like real hairs! It’s an extremely meticulous process that takes around two hours to complete. Since the results will last for up to three years before beginning to fade.12991929_10154078781163164_241703593_o  microblading-dark-skin-black-woman

Microblading is perfect for those who want to define, cover gaps,fill-in over plucked brows,or add a slight arch. Results are a natural, undetectable fringe. Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort, followed by a liquid anesthetic.brow26 The smudge-proof solution will cost you anywhere between $700 and $800. Who can perform this service differs from state to state. I have found class registrations online that said they were open to cosmetologist and estheticians. But I also have read that only a tattoo artist can do it. Best thing I can tell you is look for the license. There must be a tattoo artist permit or they must be registered with the department of health.




Threading Vs Waxing

When it comes to the perfect brows,how you remove the excess hair is key.


Some say waxing is better. Some say threading is. Well I say that it is a matter of opinion. Also how thin or thick your brows are. I have been threaded and waxed. I like the shaping that threading gives. But I think waxing leaves the area cleaner looking. They will tell you that threading hurts less.eye-brow-threading In my opinion it does not! At least with waxing,its over quicker. With threading its a continuous,slow, plucking. Ouch !! as far as which lasts longer,its about the same. You can’t thread as soon as the hair comes back either. You’ll need a sixteenth of an inch of hair growth before the thread can wrap around the hair, meaning you do have to wait until it is noticeable to get your eyebrows done again. With waxing,you can do it as soon as you see stubble.
