Brow tattooing, brow feathering or natural eyebrow?
I get asked a lot: Should I tattoo my eyebrows? or Should I get brow feathering? Should I just have my natural brows? Here are my thoughts:
Brow tattooing or feathering can results in nice brows. I truly agree with it, it will look very nice for the first 6 months or so, but then it can lead to other unpleasant experiences. The most commons are fading of the colour which can be fixed with ‘touch up’. The problem is, no one (No One!) can guaranty how your skin will react and what colour it ends up fading too.
Most of my client that had it done before are ending up with grey brows, blue brows, orange brows and they are all patchy. Yes, always patchy. Let’s say you don’t really mind going for touch ups for the rest of your life. Have you considered the damage on your skin? Have you seen or experienced a cut on a cut on a cut on the same small spot on you body? That can easily create a keloid scar (a raised scar). What about the damage of your hair follicle? If we could choose I am positive you would’ve loved to lose hair in some areas of your body, but I am pretty positive that you would not like to lose hair on your eyebrows. Right?
I heard a brow feathering lady once say – feathering can encourage hair growth… mm have you ever saw hair grow on scars? I would leave it to you to think (not a very good selling point I’d say).
Now let’s say you don’t care, as long as your brows are on point and you have the best eyebrow design ever! Did you know, you would still need to come regularly for a tint and a wax? Yes, I know some think they will save money by semi-permanent brows but in fact you don’t really.
Talking about semi-permanent, as a brow specialist I see a lot of clients that had their brows done and can not get rid of the pigment. It is after all SEMI-PERMANENT, just think about this combination of words for a sec. it is not only partial permanent, that is from my experience, equal PATCHY.
Now lets talk about the shape.. oh, the shape! I have to say, there are a lot of great brow artist that are creating a great design, but there are also a lot that don’t! Just yesterday I had a client that had her eyebrows feathered, not just that she had (permanent) grey tint on her brows, they were uneven! Luckily, I have seen it before and I knew wat to do. But trust me the effort is not worth it.
How about going natural? Is that an old fashion thino? How about investing the time you would lay there (and get tortured for 3 hours) and put it in to learning a new skill? Learn how to create brows with make up? Once you got it, it will take you a minute max 2 to do it every morning. If you not sure and don’t know how to do it, book a workshop to learn how. I am not sure if you know but with every TrueBrow™ collection purchased in our salon we give a free application workshop.
I always say- DON’T LISTEN TO ME, TALK TO SOMEONE WHO HAD IT DONE 5 YEARS AGO. They will be the best ones to take advise from 😊.
