Microfeathering is the newest brow trend, but don't be fooled.. microblading will give you the same beautiful and natural results.
While researching what type of artist you should go to, you may see articles that say "microblading is only for sparse patchy problem eyebrows" and "microfeathering is for full eyebrows that you want to make more bold".. be careful with the wording in an article or someone advertising themselves as a "microfeathering specialist" because if you pay attention, you'll see microfeathering is no different than microblading. A microblading artist does precisely what a microfeathering artist does!
Microblading clients come in with all types of brows and the results are great no matter what type of natural brows you start with.
Let's take a closer look:
Microblading is a form of tattooing. Unlike a regular tattoo, microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine. Hair-like strokes are drawn on with the tool to mimic natural hairs in your eyebrows.
Microfeathering is when small "hair like" incisions are created by a hand held thin and precise blade (the same one used for microblading) - not a tattoo gun. Special dye (also known as pigment) is deposited in the incisions on the top layer of skin (again, the exact technique as microblading)
Which one of these clients had microblading and which had microfeathering?
Trick question! Both are microblading clients who started with full natural brows.
Sometimes it can be difficult when the internet jumps on a trend, but don't get caught up in the hype of a new title for the same service.
No matter what artist you go to and what kind of brows you have naturally, the best thing is to book with an artist who is educated, trained, licensed, insured, and most importantly, skilled!
