Over the past few years, there has been a growing range of different brow treatments to help boost volume and self-confidence.

One of the biggest of these has been microblading, a semi-permanent solution where a special microblade tool is used to apply colour pigments that have the look of real hair, making brows look richer and fuller as a result, with the results lasting between 12 and 18 months.

There are other, similar techniques, such as semi-permanent makeup that avoid the need for long makeup routines each and every day, but another system that has also grown in popularity over the past few months is known as microfeathering.

Microfeathering is a very specific form of microblading in that it creates the appearance of individual brow hairs to help either fill in patchy brows or create new natural-looking brows in cases where a person cannot grow a full brow.

The difference between the two is largely in terms of scale and focus. Microblading is often used across the entire length of the brow to add definition and create luscious thick and intense brow styles.

Microfeathering, on the other hand, is more specific and tailored to the brow needs of specific people, and typically uses fewer strokes, less intense colour and finer blades that add pigment to the top layer of the skin, providing the feather touch that is in the name.

It is often used to fill out patchy areas and emphasises the natural look of the brow.

Much like microblading, one of the biggest advantages is that it is largely no maintenance, with the only routine task being to carefully pluck out stray hairs. This means no eyebrow pencil and no other makeup is necessary to ensure the face is framed beautifully.

As with any beauty treatment, the first step is to consult an expert beautician, who can look into the right treatments for you and make you aware of the expected results.
