Here, we can go in depth of the procedures of microblading and eyebrow extensions to help you decide.
Which one should you go for?
Whether to go for microblading or eyebrow extensions, the answer to this actually depends on your requirement and lifestyle. But to make the right decision you need to know in detail about each procedure, the process as well as the aftercare and also the durability and long term effects.
The process of eyebrow extensions is done by attaching small and individual eyebrow hair with the help of an adhesive. This is best in the case where there is already a base eyebrow on which you can build it up into a specific style to enhance the thickness resulting in fuller looking eyebrows. These extensions stick better to hair rather than skin. It can be done by anyone in any parlor or beauty salon. In the case of microblading, no prior hair is required, as the process involves the tattooing of hair like strokes with a special pigment in the shape and style required. A needle like tool is used to make thin cuts in the top layer of the skin where the dye is deposited. This process needs to be performed by a professional technician with proper training and certification. Just do a Google search ‘Eyebrow microblading near me’ to find the nearest studio.
The durability of an eyebrow extension is only that of 10 to 20 days. This makes it a good option for a temporary occasion such as a party, event or a holiday trip. Whereas the microblading is a semi permanent tattoo that can lasts anywhere from 12 to 18 months and maybe even more with a few touch ups in between.
The cost of a one time eyebrow extension is almost the same as that of a microblading session. But if you compare the durability as well as maintenance that goes behind each, the cost of microblading is reasonable enough and much less compared to extensions.
So before you decide on which service to go for, keep in mind all the above factors that go into each process and choose according to your requirement.
