A relatively new technique, microfeathering of feather eyebrows, as it is also known, creates natural-looking set of brows by using a blade (similar to the one in microblading) to create individual incisions among your existing brow hairs and then fill them with pigment that resembles your natural color as close as possible.
By creating cuts only in the areas of the eyebrows that have gaps, the brows will retain their natural shape and color, but appear fuller and fluffier. It will look as if you were born with them.

The price of feather eyebrows depends on many factors such as the location, the experience of the artist, local competition, materials used as well as the popularity of the treatment in your area. With that said, the prices go from around $500 to $1500 and even higher, depending on the expertise of the makeup artist. Within the price, two appointments and the initial consultation are normally included.
Microfeathering is a delicate procedure that requires a lot of skill and precision and therefore is usually little more expensive than the other two popular semi-permanent treatments, microblading and microshading.
The average price of feathered eyebrow treatment in the USA is around $1000, however, note that you can find it for as low as $500 and as high as $2500. In the table below, you can see the average price for the three major treatments across the USA.
Typically, microfeathering consists of a consultation in which you decide on the shape and pigment choice and two appointments after that.
During the first appointment, which usually lasts around 1.5 – 2h, the artist will do their magic and refine your brows by creating tiny incisions and filling them with the pigment. Don’t worry, you won’t feel a thing because they will apply a numbing cream before starting.
Six to eight weeks later you will have your second appointment during which the artist will do a touch-up and fill in any remaining areas that didn’t retain pigment well and do any other corrections that are needed.
Many factors influence the cost of feather eyebrows. The most common one is the location. Depending on where your chosen salon is, you can spend a small fortune on them, or do it for a relatively small amount of money.
But beware that low pricing usually signifies the artist’s lack of experience and therefore the skill of the aesthetician is also one of the dominant factors that form the price.
Always look for a certified artist with a lot of experience and try not to be led only by the price, after all, it’s your brows we are talking about. Apart from these, the local competition and the general interest in the procedure also play a role in forming the price.
Your skin won’t affect the price of this treatment, however note that oily skin will retain the pigment shorter than normal to dry skin and therefore you will need to do your touch-ups more often in order to have perfect eyebrows. Also, feather eyebrows are most suitable for people who already have full brows which have gaps here and there which need filling.
If you have over-tweezed brows or suffer from oily skin, it is better to opt for microblading or microshading treatment.
All three procedures are quite alike and include either blades (for microblading and feather eyebrows) or a set of needles (microshading) which create cuts that are filled with pigment. With that in mind, the artists usually do not make a great difference in the cost of these three treatments, with eyebrow feathering and microshading usually being around $100 more expensive than microblading. The reason for this is that microfeathering uses single strokes and hence requires more skill to make your eyebrows as natural as possible.
Always look for certified makeup artists with great reviews and a lot of experience. Do your research and find the one whose style best suits your needs, because each aesthetician has his or her own style and technique so make sure that it’s the one you like. Also, look at before & after photos, to be certain you really like it.
PMUHub tip: Try not to be led by the price only, but by artist’s style and credentials as well.
This is not a small investment of course. However, you will have the brows from your dreams every day, all day, and all that without even touching any brow pencil. That speaks enough, doesn’t it?
Just be thorough in you research and find the salon which you love, which will give you your enhanced, natural-looking eyebrows and it will definitely pay off.
If you are tired of buying all those eyebrow kits and filling in your brows over and over again, and you crave for natural-looking set of brows which will be with you not only in the mornings, but also after a gym session, then eyebrow feathering is the right choice for you.
Eyebrows are an important part of a person’s face, and since microfeathering is semi-permanent, this is not a moment to be cheap. That is why you should do a serious research and compare the prices of nearby salons.
Ultimately, be aware that the price shouldn’t be more important than the skillfulness and experience of the artist or other factors mentioned in this guide.
