Beautiful brows: The microblading trend

Beautiful brows: The microblading trend

1 Min

If like many of us, you foolishly over-plucked in your youth and your brows now lack oompf, this new beauty technique could be the answer. Get to grips with microblading right here...


What is it?
The latest advance in eyebrow tattooing – and beauty bloggers are obsessing over it. Microblading is different from regular tattooing in that the colour pigment is implanted under the skin by a hand held micro blade, not a machine, to form superfine strokes and create a more natural look.

How long does it last?
It’s semi-permanent so can last up to three years.

Is it painful?
Most therapists will apply a topical anaesthetic to numb the brows.

How much does it cost?
Approximately £250+ be wary of cut price microblade offers as it’s a highly skilled expertise.

Where can I try it?
There are an increasing number of practioners operating in Scotland but do your research as microblading’s semi-permanent nature means you need full confidence in your therapist.
