We’re always on the hunt for new techniques to make sure our eyebrows are on fleek and trust me, the obsession with our eyebrows is going nowhere fast, (#sorrynotsorry). You only have to scroll through Instagram for a few minutes to realise that the trend MICROBLADING is big beauty news. There are almost 5 million (yep, you read that right) hashtags dedicated to the cosmetic procedure that fills sparse patches, making brows look seriously sharp and sexy!
WHAT’S THE HYPE BEHIND MICROBLADING
Microblading it is a semi-permanent makeup procedure whereby hair like incision strokes are created along the eyebrow to either enhance, reshape and more popularly, create a natural appearance on your eyebrows. The beauty business is in boom due to permanant makeup or cosmetic tattooing. So, if you have light eyebrows, no eyebrows, or partial eyebrows, microblading is the procedure you ought to go for.
THE PROCEDURE IS…
- While this may be a life changing treatment for hair loss sufferers, it can be used by pretty much anyone looking to boost or add shape to their natural brows.
- The first appointment typically takes two hours. In the first hour, they draw the shape with removable pencil. That’s the longest and super important step.
- The beauty therapist takes the time to match the colour of the tattoo to that of your natural brows, and customise the hair pattern.
- The initial colour of your new brows will be darker than the eventual result, softening to a lighter shade after about two weeks.
- The procedure can last upto 6 months and more depending on the permanency of the procedure.
This trend is huge right now. It’s most commonly performed on eyebrows, transforming thin, over-plucked ones into bushy, Cara Delevingne-esque brows. It’s available at a number of salons and clinics in Lahore now and here are the ones that we’d recommend.
