Permanent Eyebrows

Framing a photograph or a painting with the perfect shape gives your artwork importance. Permanent eyebrows frame the eyes and face in the very same way. By carefully selecting colors, designing the eyebrows shape, and placing “hair line” strokes artfully into the brow, Shelly will simulate the look of real hairs. In just 2 hours you will have fuller, natural looking eyebrows! This specialized technique is great for those who have shapeless, thin or even no eyebrows.

Permanent Cosmetics by Shelly offers two types of permanent eyebrow procedures: Microblading and Eyebrow Tattoo. Both options use the same “hair stroke” technique but Microblading is done with a hand tool and the strokes look like more precise lines. Eyebrow tattooing is done with a digital tool that results in a fuller brow with more of a soft powder filled appearance.

Microblading vs. Eyebrow Tattoo FAQ's

Here are some microblading vs. eyebrow tattoo FAQ's to help you decide if microbladed eyebrows or eyebrow tattooing is right for you.

What is is the difference between microblading and eyebrow tattooing?

Both microbladed eyebrows and eyebrow tattooing use the same technique (hair strokes). The only difference is the tool used. Microblading is done with a hand tool and eyebrow tattooing is done with a digital tool/machine.

Will the results be the same?

Results will be similar. Microbladed eyebrows are done with a hand tool with micro-needles resembling a fine blade (microblading), resulting in a crisp, very fine stroke which heals to a more natural feathered eyebrow hairlike stroke.

Eyebrow tattoos are done with a digital machine. Anyone who desires a fuller brow will love this procedure. As the hair strokes heal they tend to soften up and eventually resemble a soft powder filled look over time.

Does microblading and tattooing hair strokes last the same amount of time?

They are quite comparable as far as retention but all "permanent makeup" needs boosting over time. It's called "permanent" because you can't wash it off. Most clients require a color boost yearly, others come every 6 months for a color boost (depending on how perfect and precise a client wants their brows to look). Others can go up to 2 years without a color boost. Many variables play into how well a client will retain the ink!

Eyebrow colors are complex colors consisting of combinations of color mixtures.  This means that they are less stable and lack longevity as compared to primary colors (used in traditional tattooing).
Therefore, again, eyebrows will require refreshing, or a color "boost" to keep them looking fresh.  There is no way around this, as eyebrow pigments are "complex" colors.
As the eyebrow starts to degrade, you'll notice that initially, they'll become a lighter version of what they once were when first done.  Then, you may also notice that generally the gold tones or warm tones will eventually begin to disappear as they metabolize more quickly than the other colors within the eyebrow pigments.  This is the normal course of color degradation with the normal metabolizing of color.  Again, as noted above, if other factors are introduced to the metabolizing of color, such as medication changes, excessive sunshine, etc.,  you will need to have a color refresher sooner.   
A very commonly asked question is, "How long will my permanent makeup last?"  There is no simple answer to this.  We tell our clients, "When you are feeling the need to pick up a pencil to add more color is the time to pick up the phone to schedule your color refresher appointment."
Is the price the same?

The price is very similar for either process initially. Colors boosts are the same and that pricing varies depending on how long you wait between color boosts. See all pricing here.

Do both procedures require a touch up?

Yes. They both require one, sometimes two touch ups to look their best.
