There are a few steps that each experienced artist goes through to ensure that their clients get eyebrows which are as natural as possible.
Step 1: Finding a proper color
Most aestheticians will use a custom-made blend of pigments that match the client’s natural brow color. In this way, the microbladed strokes will blend with the real hairs and you won’t be able to tell a difference.
Step 2: Imitating the natural growth pattern
Apart from the color, another essential element the artists need to pay attention to is the direction in which they place each stroke. These strokes must imitate the direction of the surrounding natural hairs in order to provide the perfect blend.
We all know that some hairs grow upwards, some downwards and majority sideways. It is up to the artist to notice the best position of each stroke to make it as similar as possible to the surrounding ones.
Step 3: The shape
We can all agree that when talking about the differences between male and female brows, this is where we see the biggest change. While women’s brows are always perfectly and clearly shaped, men’s tend to be a bit unruly and imperfect, and that’s exactly how we love them!
To ensure the shape will stay like that even after the microblading procedure, the aestheticians make sure to add a few “stray” hairs here and there.
To answer you shortly – Yes! If done properly, microblading for men can provide a natural set of brows which will nicely blend with your existing hairs. The procedure is done in such a way that the strokes “sneak in” between your natural hairs, so the final look will just be fuller and better-shaped arches, and that is the beauty of this treatment.
Men microblading usually lasts between 1 and 2 years, depending on several factors, such as your skin type and general lifestyle.
The pigment tends to fade after a year or so, so a touch-up is recommended once a year if you wish to retain the shape and intensity of the pigment. If, on the other hand, you grew tired of them, the great thing is you can just wait for them to fade.
This is the most common question people ask. Recommendation is always the safest choice, but not everyone can have that.
The other, equally safe option, is to choose a certified artist with lots of experience and positive reviews. This is a very popular treatment both for women and men, so you shouldn’t have a problem in finding someone who has all the qualifications mentioned above.
And don’t go with the cheapest option, because you will probably regret it. The reason why some salons offer a low-priced treatment is because the staff is inexperienced and/or they work with low-quality pigments and equipment, and you don’t want that for your face and brows.
So, there you have it! Men microblading proved to be an effective solution for guys who want some extra fullness in their brows that look natural and is easy to maintain. If you are a guy who struggles with the shape or volume of his brows, do not hesitate to opt for a microblading treatment.
