Do You Need To Shave Your Eyebrows For Microblading?

When it comes to striking, beautiful yet easy to maintain eyebrows, eyebrow tattoos are a popular option for thick, striking brows without the need for maintenance.

Whilst the concept of tattooing has existed since Ancient Egypt, more advanced methods and techniques have been used to add texture and depth to these brows, making them look fuller than ever before.

However, do you need to have your eyebrows shaved for microblading, or is it possible to have the best of both worlds when it comes to eyebrows?

What Is Microblading And Microfeathering?

Microblading is a precise tattooing technique which uses an exceptionally fine set of needles that deposit pigment into the upper layers of the skin. The pen is so fine and so sharp it can create designs that look like natural hairs, and with that create a natural-looking yet semi-permanent brow.

Microfeathering, on the other hand, is a very similar technique that mostly differs in the execution. Microblading is generally used to create a whole new brow, whilst microfeathering is a technique that works to enhance the brow that is already there.

It uses the initial brow as a base and precisely fills in the rest to create a fuller eyebrow that has a greater depth and texture than standard microblading.

However, a microbladed brow tends to last longer, because the fine strokes are slightly deeper and the pigment can bed more effectively than with microfeathering, which has lighter strokes to match your hair.
