Feather (Hair) Stroke Brows – involve micro blading tiny lines/strokes in a design that gives the appearance of hair. Hair-strokes alone, do require more touch ups than other methods, however it is the most natural look for cosmetic tattooing.
Are powder (block) at the tails of the brow fading into micro strokes at the front, a trend that is very popular at the moment for those who fill in their brows quite heavy but still want that natural appearance in the middle, this option also lasts longer in the skin. Suitable for people that still want a bold defined shape while wearing makeup, but not too dramatic when they aren’t.
Do not get wet for two weeks! Keep extremely clean and only apply Vaseline on the 7th day if they are extremely dry and flaky. If the brows appear dry but are not flaking then avoid applying anything and allow them to heal on their own. If you feel as though your brows are still flaky and dry you can continue to apply the Vaseline once daily, however over applying Vaseline will cause the healing to become ‘wet’ and the ink will not heal in the skin as well.
On day 7 you can get a slightly damp cotton pad and gently pat down the brow to remove any dirt or hard fluids built up. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.
Make sure to keep the skin clean and dry. Let them naturally exfoliate and scab, do not pick.
Can moisturize with a normal moisturizer but no glycolics or AHA’s
