Warning: the below person did not seek initial microblading services from Varvara Brows, but instead came to repair them.
Intro to Microblading
No matter which eyebrow procedure you prefer (waxing, threading, tweezing, microblading etc.), I cannot stress enough the importance of having the proper eyebrow shape. My goal for this blog post is to help you realize through a real-life example how essential it is to choose a microblading specialist with shaping expertise. As we all know, the shape of an eyebrow can either make or break the face, but even worse, an improper eyebrow shape can take months to repair.
Awhile back, a client of mine came to me to repair her brows after an inexperienced “specialist” distorted her shape in a prior eyebrow procedure. She wanted like most women want, to put down the makeup and eyebrow pencil and go for a more permanent brow solution.
The first two pictures below show the specialist shaped her eyebrows with and without makeup, prior to her dermablading consultation.
She went ahead with a micro-dermablading (aka microblading) procedure hoping to achieve a similar look and effect to the first two photos. What she got, however, was not what she was looking for.
Transformation from Proper Microblading
The next picture shows how the eyebrows started to transform after the procedure when the eyebrow specialist decided to change the shape of the eyebrow dramatically. It is also worth mentioning that the “specialist” did not know how to or chose not to apply natural colors to enhance the client’s features and cultivate a 3D appearance. After that we see how the dermablading started to fade and how it absolutely destroyed the natural shape of the eyebrow.
As time went on, the client started to clean up her own eyebrow in order to match the appearance of the permanent eyebrow created for her. And when the dermablading faded and she stopped matching the brow, the client realized that only half of the eyebrow was left.
Choosing a Specialist
- The shape of the eyebrow is crucial, especially in microblading. The eyebrow specialist should make shaping the brow her number one priority over the color and the hair stroke. Consider the latter two secondary concerns.
- Pick someone who knows how long it truly takes to restore a shape. The process takes anywhere from 4-6 months to fully restore the shape of the brow in cases where the brow needs to be drastically repaired. Making this not only a time-consuming process but also a pricey one as well.
- Choose quality before price. $100-$200 microblading procedures boast to give amazing results. However, low cost specialists do the procedures with less care and the necessary expertise.
Although microblading procedures can be pricey, you pay for the quality of work that is desired.
When it comes to choosing a specialist to work on your face, be very careful and selective with whom you will entrust with your look!
Achieving natural and beautiful eyebrows takes time, patience and dedication. It’s a process that requires a certain area of expertise, a level of understanding on how the hair works, moves and grows.
