Microblading and Ombre Brows: Which is Better for Your Look?
Updated: Dec 16, 2021
When it comes to eyebrows, there are many different styles that people can choose from. Some of the most popular ones are microblading and ombre brows. Both services offer clients a way to get fuller brows but they differ in technique and benefits for the client. This blog post will discuss both services so you know which one is right for your look!
What is Microblading vs. Ombre Brows?
Microblading is a service where pigment is deposited into the skin using a very fine blade. This gives the appearance of fuller, more defined brows by replicating hair strokes in the direction of your natural hair growth pattern. Ombre brows are created by gradually lightening the color of the eyebrow hair from the root to the tip. A shading technique is used to create a soft powered finish. This look is perfect for those who want natural looking eyebrows that still have definition. I call it the "no makeup, makeup look". Brows are ready to go for any occasion without needing to be filled in.
So, which is better for you?
If you are looking for full, more defined brows with distinct hair-like strokes then microblading is the service for you. If the goal is to maintain your natural hair structure or create a new structure you will love microblading. Ombre brows are perfect if you want a more glam look or shaded look as if you used a brow pencil to fill in your brows. This look is great if you like dark or thick brows. Whichever service you choose, make sure to consult with a professional to see what would be the best look for you!
Is Microblading easier to maintain than Ombre Brows?
They both are easy to maintain! If the 6 week touch-up is completed after the initial session, your brows will last a while! With ombre eyebrows, you have to go back within 12 to 48 months for a touch up since the color will start to fade. This is because it is a semi-permanent tattoo procedure and it will not last forever. Microblading typically lasts around 12-18 months before a touch up is needed, depending on how well you take care of your eyebrows. So, if you are looking for a long lasting brow solution then both microblading and ombre brows will give you that result!
Are there any risks associated with Microblading & Ombre Brows?
Just like any other tattoo procedure, there are always some risk. The most common risk is infection, but this will be treated with antibiotics by your doctor if it occurs. Other risks include pigment loss in the eyebrow area and scarring of the skin. This is why you should always see a professional for these procedures so they can advise you on what to do before, during, and after treatment. NEVER choose the cheaper place to do your brows.
