NANO BROWS 101
SUITABLE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES
BEST OPTION FOR OILY/SENSITIVE SKIN WHO DESIRE HAIR STROKES
[AKA nanoblading, digital brows, semi-permanent brows, cosmetic brows, nano needling, micropigmentation, SPMU]
Nano brows are achieved using a digital machine method of semi-permanent makeup. Needles of varying sizes and configurations are used to perform micro perforation and implant pigment into the skin. This method allows the artist to emulate the depth, texture and movement of the hairs for defined or fluffy eyebrow . Density and fuller brows can also be achieved by layering soft shading techniques.
Using a single needle, an pixel shading is achieved by depositing pigment into the skin in hundreds of tiny dots that create an overall powder-like effect. This allows for a more controllable colour/intensity that she can tailored client’s wishes. Likewise, hairstrokes can be built up and layered for hyper realistic appearance.
Hair like strokes angled to mimic the natural hair growth are used to create fuller brows that seamlessly blend with existing hairs. The ideal method to achieve hairstrokes varies between clients and is dependent upon factors, such as skin type, in order to achieve optimium results. At BlushBrow the eyebrow shape, colour and texture are customised thus creating hyper-realistic results whilst taking into account the client’s individuals’ personal aesthetic preferences and personality.
BlushBrow signature look builds volume, density and texture for the coveted natural fluffy brow look. This look is further enhanced at the studio with Brow Lamination treatment.
OMBRÉ POWDER BROWS
Once healed, will look like powdered eyebrows that are lighter in the front and will gradually darken towards the tail. The end result is a defined shape that is soft and powdery looking.
The intensity of the result can be tailored from soft to bold ombré, depending on the client’s individuals’ personal aesthetic preferences and personality. A softer appearance can be created by depositing fewer layers of pigment for example.
Not sure if this is the look for you? Why not try out Henna Brows before fully committing to SPMU.
This treatment is ideal if the client is undecided between ombre shading and hairstroke brows, provided the best of both techniques. At BlushBrow there are many variations of combination which are tailored to the individual based on their desired look. The initial hair strokes are added first using a manual microblade then the digital machine can be used to add varying thickness to strokes. These hair like stokes can be used through the entire brow, with shading in between; at the front of the brow with a shaded body and tail etc.
This technique is ideal for those with very little to no natural hair as a number of techniques can be applied to provide contrast with the fluffy texture of microblading and fullness created by the machine for a realistic looking brow.
Typically takes 3 to 4 hours, depending upon the desired fullness and how much natural hair the client has. The healing duration is often shorter than microblading.
I recommend having a tint/wax one week prior or on day of patch test as this will tidy your brows ready for the Nano Brows.
The Micropigmentation is a four-part process completed over two sessions.
The initial session will begin with a consultation in order to establish the clients preferred aesthetic as well as determining the individual’s facial expressions in order to map out the ideal brows.
A brow mapping technique using golden ratio proportions that measure the distance between all points of the client’s upper face is used, whilst also trying to preserve as much of the natural brow hair as possible. In doing so a symmetrical and flattering brow, proportional to the individual’s face, is achieved.
Excess hairs are then removed and maintained using various techniques such as threading, tweezing and trimming the hairs.
The digital machine is then used to replicate hair strokes/powder brows within the second layer of the skin.
The retouch appointment is typically required in order to add any pigment that did not ‘hold’ during the healing process. This session typically takes 15-60 minutes and must be carried out 6 – 12 weeks of the initial appointment so as not to incur an additional fee.
