How are you? Today we're going to talk about the difference between semi permanent brows which are also known as Microblading, Ombre or Powder Brows and lastly, Combination Brows.
Microblading and ombre, also known as powder brows, are both popular techniques in the semi-permanent eyebrow world, but they are very different.
Microblading involves using a handheld tool to create small, precise strokes that mimic the appearance of individual eyebrow hairs (my fave). This technique offers a hyper-realistic effect, ideal for those who want a natural and hair-like finish. Microblading is especially suitable for individuals with sparse or uneven brows, as it fills in gaps seamlessly. The results tend to be more delicate and subtly defined, giving the appearance of defined, groomed and 'done' eyebrows.
On the other hand, ombre or powder brows provide a more shaded and gradient look. This technique involves using a machine to deposit pigment in a soft-to-dark transition, creating a fading effect that mimics the appearance of softly powdered eyebrows. Ombre brows are characterised by a smoother, more filled-in appearance, with a focus on creating depth and dimension. This technique is often chosen by people who have more mature skin or desire a polished and defined brow look that is still looks natural in appearance, without the individual hair strokes that microblading offers. The ombre technique is versatile and works well for various skin types and eyebrow shapes, making it a popular choice for those seeking a well-defined yet subtle enhancement.
Then we have combination brows, which is essentially a combination of both microblading and ombre brows. So this is especially good for somebody who wants a natural fluffy brow but they need that little bit more of something just to finish the brows. Like you know when you look at something and you think it just needs that little bit more but you don't want put too much in this is that.
This is my most popular semi-permanent Brow treatment, and it is my favourite full stop. This is also very good if you have actual thick natural eyebrow hairs and the microblading hair stroke is thinner than that once healed you'll see the difference between your hairs and the microbalded hairs so this is where a little bit of shading will come in, and if you just shade between you can blend it all through so you don't see the difference.
I hope that gives you a good explanation as to which treatment is what, and if you have any questions just let me know in the comments or email me
