Trusting the Process: The Importance of Trust in Microblading

 • 

Microblading Image
You’ve tried every solution known to man to remedy your brows, and you’ve finally decided that microblading was the best solution for you. You find a reputable specialist, schedule your consultation and you’re all ready to go. You arrive at said location, eagerly ready to flaunt your news brows, and after a few minutes of talking with your specialist you realize one big problem: your specialist doesn’t trust your opinion and you don’t trust theirs.

When it comes to microblading, trust is one of the biggest factors in achieving a flawless, natural look, if not THE most important factor. And it’s not just clients trusting the specialist, it’s the specialist also trusting the client.

Since microblading is considered an art, it’s easy to understand why there can differences in opinions. Your client may want arched brows to a degree you find absurd, and your specialist wants to give you brows as dark as Groucho Marx.

But art after all, is a highly debatable subject.

So how do you come to compromise?

It’s important to remember that each party brings a valuable asset to the team: the client knows the look they want to achieve, however your area of expertise is to craft and eyebrow that they didn’t even know was possible.

Therefore, when sitting down with a brow specialist or client, it’s important to keep an open mind and try to not let preconceptions or stubbornness guide your adjustment. In doing so, you’ll ensure that you both have a smooth and fun process.

Maybe you can adopt one of these styles that works best for your unique features and complete the look you’ve always wanted.

The feathered look is found mostly in Western Europe. It gives off an effortlessly chic vibe. These feathered brows are simply combed up and out with a few short strokes of brow powder and topped off with brow gel.

Middle Eastern well-defined eyebrows focus all the attention to the eyes

Number 2: Middle East and Eastern Europe

Traveling East, we will find more of the bold and angular type brow. In the Middle East, the eyes play an important role as the focal point of the face, and therefore, the eyebrows must stand out. This look is also very popular on Instagram among makeup artists.

Beach eyebrows from down under

Number 4: Australia

A trend that most likely started in Australia and is making its way to Europe, the “beach” eyebrow consists of lightening the shade of your eyebrows without bleaching them. The key to achieving this look is to comb your brows with eye primer to coat the hairs and then fill in with a brow pencil that’s a shade lighter than your hair.

Eyebrow Shaping Do’s and Don’ts According to Oprah and VarvaraBrows™

DO’s:

Do: Invest in a visit to an eyebrow expert for an initial shaping.

Do: Use slant-tipped tweezers because they’re best for grasping tiny brow hairs.

Do: Fill in brows with pencil or powder one shade lighter than your haircolor. Taupe works well with most shades, but if your hair is very dark brown or black, choose a pewter pencil, says Sania Vucetaj, owner of Sania’s Brow Bar in New York City.

Do: Use brow gel to tame unruliness; to ensure you don’t apply too much, always scrape the brush against the opening of the tube before applying.

Do: Use pencil (or powder) to cover white hairs; plucking results in sparse brows.

DON’Ts:
Don’t: Tweeze hairs above your brows at home; pluck only stray hairs below. This will help maintain the shape.

Don’t: Use black pencil, unless your hair and skin are very dark.
