Work with with you got!!
Okay so we all know that our eyebrows are there for a purpose, to
prevent sweat, water or any free failing objects from sliding down the
face and into the eyes but they have always been a feature we use to
express ourselves. When you’re surprised you raise those brows, when
you are angry you frown them but no one ever really wants to look
permanently surprised or angry right? You wouldn’t think this was the
case looking at some of the brow trends over the years. In the 1920’s,
30’s and 40’s we witnessed upward rounded arches on trend. Following
this the 80’s and 90’s saw the skinny brow rise in popularity where a girl
could draw on an entire expression with one line of a kohl pencil. Today
we are right back to the trends of the 1960’s the fuller, thicker brow once
sported on the foreheads of Audrey Hepburn and Brigit Bardot and who
could contest that Hep had a pair of the greatest brows in history! Did
you know that the average person has 250 hairs in each eyebrow? Of
course if your eyebrows survived the 1990’s this may not be the case.
With fashion trends you can change your wardrobe, shoes and even hair
colour as much as you like but after a decade of over plucking your
brows the damage can sometimes be detrimental. Fear not, if like me
you don’t have the time to spend 20 minutes in the morning trying to
draw on your brows with a pencil in the dark through sleepy eyes then
micro blading might just be your saviour. If I could add up all of those
extra 20 minutes I have accumulated over the past three years I would
roll them up into a little ball and have myself a holiday in the Bahamas!
The benefits are great! I no longer have to worry about my make-up
sliding down my face at the gym, poolside or on the beach and who
even wants to wear make-up while you’re sun bathing? But on the plus
side if it’s already there you look great and with minimal effort so you can
squeeze in an extra sangria.
From a medical perspective if you have alopecia or trichotillomania
micro blading can build you a complete set of brows from nothing, which
still look as natural as a real set. The way that the blading is done means
that each individual stroke is drawn on separately creating the look of
hairs. Although I personally have hairs, my natural hair is thin and
sparse. So for me I have some blading through my own brows and then
a little extra to add to the shape and length of my whole brow creating a
fuller look all around. I also have a scar running through one eye brow
which means the shape slightly differs, this is easily fixed and covered
with the micro blading. Something which I have tried to cover and hide
for years now blends in seamlessly.
They say that eyebrows shape your face and ‘they’ aren’t wrong.
According to science the more symmetrical a person’s face is the more
attractive it appears and with perfect brows this gives the impression of
facial symmetry. A good set of brows can literally transform a person’s
face not to mention that larger brows look youthful.
Lastly when you choose your micro blading practitioner be sure to ask to
see their previous work portfolio, ask how many clients they have
worked on. Experience is everything. Choose carefully, ask to see their
credentials, read their testimonies from previous clients and check out
their rating. Letting someone who is unqualified and unexperienced carry
out this procedure on you can be dangerous, a fully qualified practitioner
will use new blades, gloves, face mask and work from a clean sterile
