Who offers the eyebrow hair beautification method?

Selected beauty salons and special browery studios offer the hair drawing procedure. It should be ensured that the beautician has received special training and knows exactly how microblading works.

Who is microblading suitable for?

In principle, microblading is suitable for everyone.

Pregnant women and those who are seriously ill should consult their doctor before microblading.

Are there any disadvantages to microblading?

The result is more natural and the color pigments can be better absorbed by the skin. Finer accentuations can also be made in this way, the new hairs look more natural. Incidentally, the trend successor to microblading has already been determined: Microshading should look even more natural because this technique allows you to work even more finely.
