Microblading eyebrows/eyebrow embroidery

Guide 65Guide 65 Posts: 447Registered Users, Moderators Curl Connoisseur
Has anyone had this done?  I'm seriously considering it.  I love when my eyebrows are "done" with makeup.  It's such a subtle change, but it adds a lot to the whole look.  But I'm lazy, and constantly running late for work, so I rarely bother anymore.  So I'm thinking of getting this semi-permanent process done.

Have you done it?  Considered it?  Any tips for me?  Around here, I can get it done at a medi-spa (there are TONS of these places all over), or from a tattoo artist, or from a cosmetic surgeon's office (not done by a doctor, but under a doctor's supervision).  I'm not sure which way to go, but I'm leaning toward the tattoo place.

    If it's done at a tattoo parlor, how would it be semi-permanent? Anything permanent would be scary to me. And anything that might make me lose my own eyebrows would be scary to me too.

    As I understand it, it’s similar to tattooing, but the ink is deposited shallowly into the skin, so it’ll fade after about 3 years. It looks a lot more natural than regular tattooed makeup.  And I don’t think you lose your own eyebrows, it just fills them in.

    I need to get out more. This is something new to me, @Guide 65 so I can't offer up any valuable advice. The before and after photos are impressive. I would choose to have it done at the cosmetic surgeons office.

    Hi @Guide 65 : I remember reading about it, and the article made me feel really grateful I liked my eyebrows. I can understand wanting to do something like this. If it was me, I would go to a medispa, unless you got a specific referral from someone you knew in real life (who's eyebrows you saw IRL) who had it done and it looks good.

    I know a few women who have done this but the finished product, quite frankly, is not something I would want to see in the mirror. To me it looks fake but I'm definitely more of a naturalist.

    Yeah, I've seen some before/afters that were just awful.  I think picking the right person to do the job is critical.  That's why I'm taking my time, not jumping in.  It's semi-permanent...but still, 3 years is a long time to go with bad eyebrows!
