So far, we have all heard about a revolutionary procedure called microblading, which has been conquering the world. Feathering, its younger sister, is a relatively new procedure in a world of semi-permanent makeup, which has been rapidly gaining on popularity.
Also known as feather eyebrows, feathered eyebrows or eyebrows feathering, this cosmetic procedure is a new trend that everyone is talking about,
Similar to microblading, this cosmetic procedure uses very precise blade to create tiny incisions in the top layer of skin. These incisions are then filled with pigment, resulting in an incredible natural-looking eyebrow hair .
The secret of this procedure is that the artists make individual incisions in the gaps of your own eyebrows which resemble natural hairs both in shape and in colour, and the final result is soft, natural looking brows.
WHO IS IT SUITABLE FOR?
The perfect candidate for this procedure is someone who already has pretty full brows and just wants to fill those sparse spots with a number of hairline strokes and get fuller but natural-looking eyebrows. This procedure will give you lush eyebrows, but the form and the colour of the brows will remain mostly yours.
At the first appointment, the artist will do their magic and, using a blade, create individual incisions wherever he or she sees a gap in the brows and then, fill these incisions with the ink resembling your natural hair colour as closely as possible. Don’t be afraid of the pain, because before making a single incision, a numbing cream is placed on the treated area, so you won’t feel a thing.
The second appointment is four weeks after the first on, depending on your healing process. Here, the artists examine their work and the healing process, and do the necessary corrections by adding more strokes where necessary. Once feathering is done, you shouldn’t be able to tell the difference between real eyebrow hairs and feather strokes.Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
