This technique is mainly used in cases when eyebrows do not have sufficient density or colour saturation. Correction is performed by adding single hairs of different length and direction in the necessary places following natural hair growth pattern, thereby adjusting the form and density of brows to their full glory. The result is fully justified since it is almost impossible to distinguish the ''drawn'' eyebrow from the natural even with close examination. The advantage of this technique is that healed result lasts for a long time, but not forever, which makes it possible to follow new fashion trends, choose other techniques and forms of eyebrow tattooing. However, does not suit all skin types, perfect for dry skin.
Shading also called watercolour/feathering/powder technique is a very popular time-tested Permanent Makeup procedure. Soft shading involves filling in the entire contour of the eyebrow with a pigment where a rather natural blurred background is created as if the eyebrows are coloured in using shadows or a soft pencil. The advantage of this technique is that it suits all skin types. Shading makes eyebrows wider, bulkier, can slightly change their bend and remove a slight asymmetry. It provides a well-groomed look when eyebrows grow infrequently and stick out in different directions. Once eyebrows are done you will need just to remove the hairs that grow outside the created shape. However, if there are large gaps here and there or hair does not grow due to scarring or skin lesions then it is better to turn to hair-stroke or combination brow technique instead.
The combination of Hair-Stroke and Shading techniques looks as natural and effective as possible, however, requires a high level of professionalism. The essence of this method is to create fine lines (hair strokes) following the natural hair growth pattern imitating natural hairs as well as filling in the spaces between the created hairs within the whole contour of the eyebrows. This method allows to completely recreate eyebrows giving them more definition, volume and colour. Creating a three-dimensional look of the eyebrows we achieve the ideal result. This technique mostly suits for people with thin, expressionless or light eyebrows as well as for those affected by Alopecia.
It is a mistake to think that eyebrows are unimportant. On the contrary, eyebrows are the most important features on any face that can either make or break our look. Eyebrows aim to make facial features more expressive and emphasise our personality. It is the shape and the shade of eyebrows that create and complete the perfect look. Nowadays, Permanent Makeup is a highly artistic procedure that requires not only great skill and training but also innate taste and, preferably, artistic education.
