Microblading has seen a rise in popularity over the last few years and is now the ‘must have’ brow treatment for the image conscious amongst us. Hailed by celebrities as their ‘brow secret’, microblading is certainly not a fad that is about to pass us by.
Contrary to popular belief, microblading has actually been around for hundreds of years. In fact, we bet you’ve met several people with microbladed brows without even realising thanks to its gorgeously natural results!
Here’s 7 reasons why microblading is here to stay and why you should add it to your treatments list…
1. Microblading is now a household name
Although it’s not a new treatment, the term microblading has only recently become a household name. No longer known by only the beauty-savvy, it’s now a term that is searched up hundreds of times per month on Google and requested by name in salons worldwide.
2. The results speak for themselves
What makes the procedure so popular is the amazing results that can be achieved. With accurate colour matching and hair-like stokes to create the brow shape, it’s the perfect low maintenance eyebrow treatment that clients love. Many permanent makeup artists say that the best part of microblading is seeing their clients’ happy face at the end of their treatment once their new brows are revealed! It’s a priceless moment!
3. It’s the most natural looking brow yet
The biggest reason we can’t see microblading declining in popularity is the fact that it’s so natural. It’s not trend-led because it doesn’t rely on the latest fashion or makeup looks to be popular. Each treatment is tailored to each individual client instead with skin tone and bone structure playing a key part in the design of the brow. It’s completely bespoke to each and every client and will never go out of style.
4. So many people can benefit from a microblading treatment
The variety of clients that you can appeal to with microblading is large and varied. From the mature client who has very sparse eyebrows, to the lady who has over plucked her brows in the 90’s – this treatment works for almost everyone.
5. There’s more recognition for permanent makeup for medical conditions
Sometimes brows can mean much more to people than just vanity alone. Permanent makeup is now recognised as a way to restore eyebrows for clients who have experienced hair loss through medical conditions such as alopecia or cancer. Being able to give the gift of confidence by creating a new set of eyebrows for someone is an incredible feeling – just ask our Elite Artists!
6. Brows are big business
Brows now make up around 80% of all requested permanent makeup treatments, so it’s easy to see why they’re big business. Eyebrows frame the face and give us expression so it’s no wonder people spend lots of time carefully pencilling them in on a morning. With microblading, you can save time on your beauty routine whilst knowing that your brows look amazing 24/7!
7. It’s a low-maintenance treatment
Microblading is classed as a permanent cosmetics treatment because microscopic pigment particles will always remain in the skin. However, it is classed as a low-maintenance treatment rather than a no-maintenance treatment – a colour boost is required roughly every 12 months to keep the brows looking fresh and top up the pigment.
Microblading is a wonderful treatment to offer as a Permanent Makeup Artist – it’s an incredibly rewarding procedure which will bring you repeat business over the years. Take the plunge today and add our microblading treatments to your service list.
