Is Microblading for You?

What is Microblading?

What is microblading you ask?  According to Wikipedia, microblading, also known by a variety of names such as embroidery, microstroking, feather touch and hair like strokes, is a form of semi-permanent makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments. Over time the strokes can blur and fade and will need to be refreshed.

Recently, my step-daughter Tiffany had her eyebrows done.  Here is my interview with her:

FTF:  

Why did you decide to get your eyebrows microbladed?

Tiffany:

My eyebrows were so light and scarce.  It would take me up to twenty minutes to draw them on.

FTF:

How long did it take to get them done?

Tiffany:

It took a half hour to draw them on.  They applied a numbing cream, which took about 25 minutes to take effect.  The actually microblading process took about an hour.  The first sitting was approximately two hours.

FTF:

Was it painful?

Tiffany:

No!  Unlike tattooing, microblading doesn’t go as deep into the skin.

FTF:

How did you know what color to pick?

Tiffany:

They recommended a color.

FTF:

How long will it last?

Tiffany:

It is suppose to last for 12 – 18 months.

FTF:

What is the cost?

Tiffany:

It costs about $450.00.

FTF:

Is there anything else I didn’t think to ask that would be helpful for someone to know when deciding whether or not microblading is for them?

Tiffany:

Yes, you can’t sweat for up to seven days and you shouldn’t get your eyebrows wet for seven days.  For the first few days, I was at home and didn’t take a shower.  I just wiped my face with baby wipes.  When I washed my face, I went around my eyebrows and used a wash cloth to rinse.  In four to six weeks, you need to go back for any corrections.

FTF:

Are you glad you had this done and would you do it again?

Tiffany:

YES!

THE RESULTS:  BEFORE & AFTER
