I had a regular client bring in a friend who was looking at getting MicroBlading done. She had done her research (very important!) and was going to go with a lady who had 20 years experience. My client said her brow lady had talent (gosh I love my clients! No pressure... 😅). Thinking that she had nothing to lose she decided to have me shape her brows and have a chat about MicroBlading while she was here.
Most people don't realise that over plucked brows can actually take months even years to grow back depending on the damage, sometimes they don't even grow back at all! In these cases or where hair never grew there in the first place MicroBlading would be a good option.
I question why she didn't try to grow them out as there is some pain involved with MicroBlading, it may not be suitable for everyone and the cost and the maintenance involved. From her research she already knew all this but thought that this was the only option left as she had been growing out her brows for some time and the tails were always thin and never grew unlike the front which was very thick and dark.
While shaping her brows and upon further inspection, I noticed that even though she had dark hair, her roots and facial hair were quite light in comparison so I suggested tinting. She had always gotten her brows shaped but no one had ever suggested it before. I was hoping the fine hair between the dark hairs would be coloured darker to match the rest of her brows and the gaps not look too noticeable while growing out the rest of the brows. Tints are great for people with light hair, they last around a month on natural brow hairs however it only stains the skin for a few days. Applying brow powder will give the same look in the meantime.
I've been looking into Brow henna which stains the skin for longer but being Adelaide no one ever comes down here to train 😪.
I left the beginning thick while we try to grow out the tail. In the event that it doesn't grow any thicker then I'll shape the beginning a tiny bit thinner just so that it will look in proportion with the thinner tail but I have high hopes 😊.
Is she still keen on MicroBlading do you ask? Well, I think the pictures speak for themselves... Who needs MicroBlading when your brows look this good naturally!
Hello and welcome to my blog.
I'm Thi, the face behind Obsessed with Beauty. I am an Adelaide based (but more than willing to travel interstate and overseas) hair and makeup artist who specialises in Weddings.
I just love the whole atmosphere of weddings, it feels like I'm getting ready with my girlfriends, sharing laughter, seeing pretty dresses, shoes, accessories, flowers and being around happy people. It doesn't get any better than spending the day doing what I love, then seeing everything coming together in the photos afterwards. I love seeing photos so don't forget to send me some afterwards!
I thought i'd start a blog for Obsessed with Beauty so I could share wedding tips and hair and makeup ideas with future brides. It's great to find photos of hair and makeup on the internet but where better to find my hair and makeup work, that way you know my style and what you'll be getting when you hire Obsessed with Beauty to undertake services for your wedding.
Feedback is great, it helps me improve and cater to what my readers want so please, please, please leave your comments, thoughts and opinions. You can also contact me by email under the contact tab on this website.
