Everything you need to know about PMU or Microbladed eyebrows.
Do you often find yourself overfilling in your eyebrows every day? We’ve all been there - draining our energy and often our bank accounts with endless products such as gels and pencils only to have them smudge throughout the day or even worse - slide of your face after the first couple of hours!
Drumroll PMU and Microblading…
Permanent makeup and Microblading can change all of the hassle and stress that comes with product buying. A permanent brow can powerfully create or redefine the entire shape of your brows, giving you the look you’ve always wanted without wasting your time or energy on a variety of products.
If you lived through the ’90s then you’ll definitely recall the thin, high-arched eyebrow trend that graced the pages of beauty magazines. Whether certain trends have returned or not, one thing is certain: cosmetic tattooing can certainly fix even those overplucked mistakes.
One of the many benefits of choosing PMU or Microblading is that it can fill in empty/sparse areas, thicken and extend as well as create brows for clients who have lost all their brow hair. With permanent makeup, everyone can have perfectly shaped brows at any time, which means one thing: feeling confident and comfortable throughout the day and every day.
Imagine a less stressful morning routine and perfect eyebrows every day…

Microblading and Nanoblading
Microblading eyebrows took the internet by storm a few years ago putting cosmetic tattooing right back on the map.
Also known as brow embroidery, microblading is a form of semi-permanent application where hair brows are manually drawn into the skin with a hand tool making the appearance of those empty areas become fuller. The final outcome? - Enhanced eyebrows yet in a very natural-looking, subtle way.
Extremely similar to the way microblading fills your brows, nanoblading also gives a long-lasting result with the hair strokes being done with a machine and a single needle or by a nano blade manual method.
However, micro and nano blading might not be the right techniques for every client. If you have very oily skin that is prone to large pores, your skin texture will cause hair strokes to eventually blend together over time which can lead to the effect of strokes and shading or just shading over time. Read on for options that are suitable for you.
The Powdered Brow (also known as Ombre Brows)
Imagine achieving that soft powdery misty make-up look every day without applying a single product. If that sounds like the look you’re after, this could be the ideal option for you.
Inspired by the ombre hair trend, ombre brows have definitely become a huge trend for thousands of us. This technique resembles brow tattooing since it is done using a machine or manual shaders to create pixelated dots that create a powder-like, shaded brow. Say hello to amazing definition and wonderful depth to your eyebrows.
If you have oily or ageing skin types, this might be a great option for you since the strokes could fade into shading anyway. Whether you would like to achieve a softer or slightly more saturated look or perhaps you’d like to opt for a more defined and solid look, results can be completely customised making powdered brows a highly popular choice.
Ombre brows grace you with one to three years of low maintenance. However, this will of course depend on a number of factors, such as lifestyle, skin type, sun exposure, health condition, etc.
The 2-step procedure consists of the initial insertion of the pigment, and a touch-up appointment between 6 weeks to 3 months after the initial procedure.
